Nifty Thrifty!


My Dad was busy the weekend of my actual birthday so the weekend after he came to spoil me. We started off with some thrift-ing so I thought I would share my special birthday booty with you beautiful people. Please ignore the mess around me in the pictures. I also don’t wear make-up often so just please focus on the clothes!

The following my Dad wrapped and gave to me upon arriving in the city. The swimsuit and the hat are from my Dad.

The picture my Dad gave me is now hanging in my hallway, but I will be posting all about that later. Yes, that is a Mennonite bonnet. Who doesn’t need a Mennonite bonnet?

Most of the following clothes came from the Goodwill on S Van Ness. The blue dress came from Mission Thrift.

First on the “runway” we have the casual wear.

Now for a little Fabulousness in the work place or on the town! And a picture of me holding my cat just to mix things up.

My father was also nice enough to buy me new ballet slippers! Yay!!!

After all that shopping we went to House of Prime Rib to refuel. My father, my boyfriend, and I were early so we had a drink at the bar while we waited for my Aunts and Uncle. The House of Prime Rib makes one of the best Whiskey Sours I have had in the city so far which was a good thing since “The House” will not seat you until your entire party has arrived. My relatives were ten minutes late because of traffic. Normally that wouldn’t be that big of a deal unless you are in one of the most popular restaurants in the city. We had to wait another hour and fifteen or so after our reservation time because of being ten minutes late. Good thing the food was fantastic (still not nearly as good as my mom’s), the servers professional and the waiter was super cute!

Overall a great day! Thank you Papa!
