So, I was wearing a free outfit the other day.

And I was trying to take pictures of it for you.

The bathroom mirror wasn’t working out too well.

So Joshua helped me out. He is famous for taking pictures when I’m not ready. 😉

Then Sonia decided to join me.

So, this is the best we could do. It’s a little blurry, and it doesn’t even really show my jeans.

I am reminded once again that I am much, much better at being on this side of the camera…

than I am at being on this side.

Anyways…my Aeropostale sweater and my Tilt jeans were both completely free. I got them from an event at our sister church which is kind of like a flea market except that everything is completely free, and that, I think, is completely wonderful.

That sounds like a great idea, Free Flea. Would you mind posting more details about it?

Sure...basically, the church has everyone bring clothes, shoes, and household items on a Friday night, volunteers sort the stuff, and then on Saturday, anyone is welcome to come and take whatever they want. All free! :)

My church does something similar...we call it a Storehouse. We have clothes and food. That outfit looks comfy :)

You are so cute!!

I haven't been to any clothing giveaways like that yet, even though I've seen a few pop up here and there. I should definitely check one out sometime. I do love Value Village though. At the rate kids grow, it doesn't make sense at all to spend a small fortune on clothing in the stores. I'm all for $2 pants that get outgrown and worn out in a matter of a couple of months! It doesn't hurt as much as $15+ items do, lol. And next to getting something for free, there is such a great feeling that comes with getting a completely "new-to-you" outfit for under $10. The Value Village near me is fantastic too. Lots of new-with-tags, name-brand pieces of clothing coming in all the time. I've never dressed better since I started shopping there! I heard a tip once. When shopping at Value Village, or any thrift store for that matter, pick one to go to that is in a more "upscale" neighborhood, or at least near one. These ones tend to have more almost-new and name brand things, if that matters to you :) I don't buy name-brand unless it's from Value Village, and even then I don't like to buy things that have the name-brand sprawled across the front. I don't like feeling like a walking billboard. So enough rambling from me! Love the pics, and love your blog. Because of you and your blog I am going to start baking, starting with bread today! So excited :)

Totally agree...the thrift stores in upscale neighborhoods do tend to have better stuff.
