Thrift store finds from yesterday. I have a wicked soft spot for vintage buttons. I have quite the collection! These aren't even all of the ones I found! I also love old Pyrex dishes so double score! I got a UK copy of Fast Food Nation as well.
I took three bags of clothing to donate. It was difficult to part with some of it but I hardly ever wear any of it anymore so I have to stop thinking about what I paid for it. As I have gotten older, I've learned to make better choices when it comes to clothing. I pretty much wear only dresses anyways so that makes it easier. I took a bunch of stuff to a new consignment store in Princeton a few weeks ago. Hopefully I'll get a small payback from that. Any money that I make is going towards the Paris trip this summer! I have a ridiculous amount of clothing, shoes and purses and I'm really trying hard to simplify and declutter. It's a long process but I think I am slowly gaining the upper hand. I'm really bad about holding on to various pieces because of some sort of fantasy I have in my head about wearing it to a certain event or place that is probably never going to happen in real life. I have been picking up a few odd and end things to wear to Europe this summer and that has been much more fulfilling than hoarding a bunch of daydream pieces.
