that whole chevron argyle thing

Since beginning to post outfits on my blog I've become really excited about making outfits from my closet.  I'm inspired by so many of my friends fashion blogs like Sarah and Bethany and they motivate me to see the possibilities of more outfits in my wardrobe!

Also since posting outfits I've tried my hand at a little thrift shopping. I recently discovered this little gem of a thrift shop not too far from my house, The Assistance League.

The Assistance League is a national non-profit that gives back to the local community with the money they raise; clothing many homeless kids in the community every year. The store has everything from clothes (for men and women) to shoes, jewelry, purses and some home goods.  Check them out!  The longer an item has been in the store, the cheaper it gets. I walked aways with a few great finds for just $1.00 each!

All of the workers are volunteers who are actually member of The Assistance League, giving back to their local community and are very committed to the cause. When I visited the store, they were all so sweet and helpful.

Take your own gently used clothes to The Assistance League to help support the local community as well. They will also welcome your shopping bags from Trader Joes, Nordstrom, etc to use for customer purchases!
