I have always wanted a ruffle dress for a long time especially the ones from @thenalegirl on Instagram but I was done buying things way beyond my budget. I mean, I was living this life way before now but I had to stop because it was already becoming an addiction. I was spending too much and I knew I had to watch it.
The only way to watch my excesses is to go thrifting. Thrifting has always been my first and only love,however in recent times we have parted ways but now stories have changed as I have reunited with this first love of mine and you bet I have missed thrifting.
Since I couldn’t afford the ruffle dresses from @thenalegirl I could only help but admire from afar via Instagram. Little did I know that God was about to transform this admiration to acquisition for his little baby girl.
On this fateful day an elderly woman passed by the house with a heap of clothes resting on her not so able shoulder. I cringed on seeing this sight and I thought to myself that so many people work their ass off to earn a living.
I beckoned on the woman to stop so that I could help patronize her business. One had to carefully check through to see very nice and durable pieces as it is with many thrift shopping. Do note that there was no premonition of getting a ruffle dress
And so I got a pink top and striped shirt and I was satisfied with what I got. Just when she was about leaving my eyes fell on this ruffle dress and all I could think of was how to style it on the blog. Fast forward to today is this blog post sharing the thrift items I got for a hundred and fifty naira each (150), earrings for 250 naira each and there are no regrets whatsoever.
It’s time to hear your thoughts guys.. What’s the least price you have ever gotten for an outfit.
