I have been on the hunt for a perfect lacey window curtain for quite some time now. I fell in love with this (amazing) photo some weeks ago and couldn’t find anything similar. Until now. For only a few bucks, I scored this over the weekend at the thrift store during their 50% off sale. I may or may not be taking a lot of photos with this little curtain. Fair warning :)
Today has been less than ideal but I’m going to make the best out of my night trying to relax. Today has also been very hot, Summer still lingers and I’m looking forward to lower temperatures this weekend for RCF.
I bought this fun geometric top over the weekend at Kmart. They have some really nice pieces this season, almost competing with Target if that’s even possible!

I’ve been swooning and reading the newest issue of NEET this weekend, here are some of my favorite things!
I’m developing a fascination with vanities and vanity areas…

Super cute and practical DIY for back-to-school season:
View the full September issue of N.E.E.T. Magazine here
Materials: plain t-shirt ($3.99), leopard square (or any other print) ($.99), pins, needle & thread, scissors, paper or cardboard for a template
Fold your paper in half and draw a half heart, cut around the line you drew – this will create a perfect heart shape. Note: make sure your paper and fabric are big enough for each other and also big enough for your t-shirt.
Pin the template to your fabric and cut around the shape.
Next, pin your fabric heart to your t-shirt – measure or eyeball it in the middle or where you like it best. Then sew! I opted to hand stitching my heart on, it would have been too much hassle with a machine, but feel free to use what you’re comfortable with.
Inspired by DOTS lately – I’ve been seeing this ‘technique’ all over Pinterest and other blogs as well and wanted to try it sooo badly! Not much to it, just as simple and effortless as it looks :)
Here’s my DIYed dotted wall as inspired by the ones above. The cost of this project was a whopping $5.23 – that’s the cost of the black vinyl on sale. I cut my 2 inch circles with my Silhouette Cameo cutter and just stuck them on where I liked.
Ten or fifteen minute fun project to decorate the wall, if I get bored all I have to do is peel of the stickers. I get a big grin every time I look at it :)
I thrifted this extra-extra-large leopard/animal print skirt maybe a year ago, I could wear it since it had a tie-string but all that extra fabric really weighted it down.
So finally I got my sewing cap on and cut off a huge chunk (practically in the middle) and made one simple stitch to patch it back up.
No tie-string necessary…
Originally, this was supposed to be a high-low skirt, but I don’t think I’ll be able to make another cut in it. I like it as is – boho chic goodness :)
I haven’t been to a thrift store ALL Summer. So, it was time to end the withdrawals. I was a bit disappointed with the selections around here and didn’t come home with many things, but two mirrors.
First thrift store presented the small desk mirror. It’s really cool with a round tilt mirror and was only ONE dollar. Score!
The second thrift store was kind of a shot in the dark. I was on the verge of not going there at all, but decided against my ~*bad judgement. As I was about to walk out, I noticed this mirror up against some frames. The price tag in the corner read $8 – sweet price so I grabbed it. Upon checkout, the lady told me it would be 75% off making the price only $2.19! Complete steal, a mirror this size (about 24×24) would be close to $80 at any other store.
This successful trip to the thrift stores scored me two awesome mirrors that will sit nicely on my new dresser, which I have yet to buy.
Do you have any recent thrift scores? Please share!
PS. Happy Monday :)
When my sister told me they had a Free People at Water Tower Place, of course I wanted to go! I didn’t buy anything, and honestly didn’t take any pictures – it felt kinda weird and I was distracted by pretty things and mobiles hanging from the ceiling.
It’s a verrry small store, boutique almost. It has all the FP characteristics and decor, like their amazing fitting room. Always love their displays and themes.
I’ll probably stick to buying Free People from Ebay and Nordstrom Rack at lower prices, but it was nice to see the store in person.
