Thrifty Treats with Nnenna

Heya everyone!  I'm Nnenna!  I'm originally from California but currently attending college in Connecticut.  I'm a shop-a-holic: I love to put together outfits and also see what everybody else is wearing!  I love to knit as well and sometimes I work my knits into my outfit posts (like above)!

I'm fairly new to thrifting (I just started at the end of last year), but I don't know why I didn't start thrifting earlier- I've found some really great clothes!  I think my favorite department in the thrift store is the sweater section.  I have found so many awesome sweaters for under $5 and when I'm lounging around my room, I love to wear these comfy sweaters!  My ultimate sweater find would be a cozy cashmere sweater- ultimate softness! :)

Things I wouldn't buy from a thrift store include underwear and sheets- I like these two items to be absolutely new when I purchase them! :D  Since spring has finally come, I've been searching for pretty dresses and skirts to wear in the warmer weather.  And I just can't resist showing you this beautiful silk maxi skirt that I found just a couple of days ago!

Thank you so much Janette for allowing me to share my thrifty treats on your blog! =)
