Hey darlin! Come on in. I’m just going through my closet, trying to downsize. My closet is over run with clothes I never wear! You know, some to small, some are old and worn, some are brand new with the tag still on them. I am sure as a woman, and even some men, can relate to what I am talking bout. Now, if your like me, from the south, I have 13 pair of black boots! And cowboy boots, I love them! I have repeated pairs of the same colors. I try to convince my husband each one is different, unique in their own way. But he is not having it. He hates when I go shopping. He refuses to go with me, knowing I may be gone all day!
I am an avid shopper, like most women. However, I sometimes, well all the time, do not know when to NOT buy something. I know I don’t need another pale green blouse, but it’s so darn cute! Am I the only one that does this? I think not.
In the south, thrift shops are the all the rage. A person can go into a thrift store, and find a whole outfit for under ten dollars, and in great condition. I know some of you think you could never wear used clothing. But let me tell you, a good washing on most of the items, and you will never know the difference. Speaking of which, there is a cute little thrift on the South side of Birmingham that I ran across a couple of months ago. I absolutely LOVE this place!
“Tha 2nd Look Urban Thrift LLC” is an upscale Urban Thrift experience selling gently used Name Brand clothes, shoes, and accessories at reasonable prices. I have to tell you, the items selected to be presented in the shop are hand picked by the Owner Tyronda Palmer-Smith, also known as “Shyne”. She is a beautiful soul, so laid back and kind, with an eye for Fashion. When you get a chance go check her out!
Here is a picture of one of the dresses I purchased from her. Eight dollars. That’s right, a steal! Isn’t this dreamy?! Don’t look at my white legs, I have since started on my tan, (hence, the nickname Sno). The pictures shown below are just examples of the numerous items you can find at Tha 2nd Look.
Do you remember a couple of blogs ago, or maybe the last one, I mentioned Monique and her Make up studio? I mentioned a shop for clothing in the same building. This is it! Tha 2nd Look. So when you get a chance, roll on through on the both of them, Tyronda and Monique. Just remember to clear your schedule, because once you enter, it is very hard to leave! I tend to forget time, looking at all the wonderful fashion.
Now I must get back to this closet. I really do need to put myself on punishment from shopping! It really is not fair to my husband. He has a small section of our walk-in closet, while my things are over flowing in three different closets. My husband even took the hall closet and surprised me with shelves all the way from ceiling to floor for my shoes. He is the best hubby a girl could ask for I swear! I don’t care what people say. A diamond might be a girl’s best friend. But in the south, its shoes! By the way, these red heels are Jessica Simpson!
So, hey, I think I am going to pour myself another glass of Tea. Hey! I need all the energy I can get to finish this purging! So until next time, remember, if you don’t need it, put it back. If you have six of the same color, put it back. If it is just too cut to pass up, buy it and worry about the rest later! Be blessed, stay Southern!
