Although I have figured out how to (reduce security) reply to comments on the blog, I realized that unless the commenter comes back, there is no way for them to read a response.
Last week a reader named Katy asked me if I wash the clothes a special way before wearing them. I wash them, but no special way. I use Charlie's Laundry Liquid (love) and a scoop of Seventh Generation Oxy cleaner/stain remover. Generally we wash all clothes on a cold/cold cycle, but with Goodwill, I do amp it up to warm. It either lets lingering bacteria fester, or as I hope, burn off. I also spray any shoes with Bac-Out.
So far, no communicable diseases!
Today's picture is a little extra blurry b/c I heard approaching footsteps as I was taking the shot. One of these days I will get caught. And it will be supremely embarrassing. Luckily, there are a couple of blog readers at work, so if it was one of those girls, I'd be okay!
Today' outfit breakdown:
Purple Tunic: NIOTTO
(this is a total random brand. Probably sold at like Forever 21 or something. But the tunic is super-de-duper soft, and I love the chain details at the neck!) $2.50
Black layering tank
(unseen): Banana Republic, $2.50
Black leggings: Random brand (NOT from Goodwill--from a store called Gabriel Brothers in OH), $3.00
Grey boots: Simple brand, $40 (NOT from Goodwill. From 6pm.com
last year. Still mourning the disbanding of the company. These boots are AMAZING! I wish they had my size in the brown.)
Outfit total: $48
Outfit total (Goodwill portion): $5
Also, I stumbled upon this online. A Goodwill auction! I am pretty satisfied with my Goodwill store, but this might be an interesting alternative for those who don't have what I consider to be the mecca of thrift stores within 10 minutes of their house.
