day sixty-nine

on saturday, i went shopping. isn't that against the rules, you ask? well, not when by "shopping" i mean "perusing a rural dump". i filled two bags with free findings and, as a result, have come up with a new series. a series i am lovingly calling "dumped".

this project has proven to me that i don't need to spend a lot of money to mix things up. everything i have worn for the past 69 days is stuff that was already sitting in my wardrobe or donated. or found at the dump! today is one of my cheapest looks, weighing in at a whopping $18 and some change.

and when i get to both save money and do something good for someone else, that's something worth jumping up and down about.


today's look while being frugal:

brown shirt under dress: secondhand (free)
orange necklace: aldo, can't remember how old ($10)
retro scarf? tablecloth? worn as skirt over dress: found at the dump (free)
brown knee socks: sears ($8)
black wellies: secondhand (free)

grand total:
about $18.08

oh, oh, a new idea, can't wait to see what you are going to do next...well this dumped idea might not work at every dump, but yours seems to have a section for reserved stuff. not like you are pillaging through the actual piles of rubbish.

A rural dump? What are those? I've never heard of one, though it sounds as if I need to check this out.

yes, this dump is the most organized dump i have ever come across. it has an organized "shop" and everything! very exciting when you're not allowed to shop for a full six months.

sngz, you definitely do need to check this out. i'll give you a tour sometime if you're ever in this neck of the woods.
