Hello Everyone!

I am so sorry for posting my Thrifty Thursday so late! This weekend has been rough. But, have no fear, it is here now!

Let’s start off with the red vest with my monogram. If you read my post last week, you would see that the vest itself only cost me $4! Then, I took it to my favorite monogram shop The Dragonfly in downtown Kent, Oh. The gold thread I chose to get was absolutely perfect for this vest. It really completes it, and it was only $7. YAY! I have already worn this vest three times and it is only Sunday, haha!

Next, are the two button downs! One of my favorite fall looks this year is wearing a button down with a sweater over top with a statement necklace! It is a classic-look! Here’s what I mean, if you’re not sure what I mean:

I usually wear jeans or leggings and of course some cute boots!

During this trip, I also bought a really pretty frame. I needed one for my certificate I received a couple of weeks ago from my sorority, Chi Omega! The pretty frame was only $2. Frames can get pretty pricey and if you look in Goodwill you will definitely be able to find some awesome frames!

YES YOU DID JUST SEE A FOSSIL PURSE! Guess how much I bought that REAL Fossil purse! $3.40. It was originally marked to be sold for $15.00, but the sales clerk thought that was too expensive for me to pay, so I got a HUGE bargain on this bag! You can say that I am SUPER DOOPER EXCITED. 🙂

And finally, I found this really adorable teal blazer. For my sorority chapter meetings, we wear business casual each week, so, a blazer is a must.

This week, my total at Goodwill was $18.00!

Again, I am so sorry that this post took me forever to put up, I hope you enjoyed this week’s finds! Check out my post next week!

XOXO,

Danie

This week’s Thrifty Thursday is super fall themed! My sister Payton, and two of my best friends Amanda and Dani (yes we have  the same name lol) are here this weekend! We have been traveling all around, we have been all over Kent and the areas around! We just came back from a pumpkin patch and it was super adorable! Both of the outfits I’m showing in this Thrifty Thursday are perfect fall outfits!

This week I went to Value Discount Outlet in Akron, Ohio. This store has anything and everything you could ever want! I was in the store with my friend Marie (who was featured last week!) for 2 and a half hours!

The first item that I found is the black puffy vest from Old Navy! I have the same vest from last year, but in coral. I bought the scarf for $45.00 and this year I bought the black vest for $3.00!!! I saved $42 by buying this from VDO!

And next, I bought the adorable patterned shirt! I bought the shirt for $4! I really like this shirt’s material. It is a a nylon/spandex-y material! It is super comfortable.

I hope you like the last picture I posted! Haha!

I also bought one more item, but I want to save it for you for when it gets a little chillier out!

And now, the moment a lot of you have been waiting for! The winner of my first GIVEAWAY is Abbie Burgess!!! Congratulations! What did Abbie win? She won:

Abbie will get to choose the colors that she wants for her monogrammed hat. I am so excited about my first giveaway!

Thrifty Thursday Is Getting Personal!

This week while I was thrifting I found these two awesome quarter-zip sweaters! Like I said in my last post, it is already sweater-weather here in Kent, Ohio, so I need as many cute sweaters as possible! I don’t know about all of you but I am a HUGE fan of monograms! I think they are just so cute. Buying monogrammed items on websites such as Marleylilly.com and Etsy.com get really expensive but, if you can thrift the things you want monogrammed it will save you a ton of money!

In Kent, Ohio we have the cutest store downtown called The Dragonfly! They monogram ANYTHING for $5. Yep, you read that correctly, $5!!!! So, I brought my two sweaters to them and picked out my colors for the monograms! I cannot wait to show you all the finished products once I have them. They are going to take a little under a week to be finished, which if you ordered something like this online it could take up to a month to get to you.

My monogram is DMR (My full name is Danie Rylee Minor), and I know a lot of people ask me why the M is in the middle. For a women’s monogram the first initial of your last name is always bigger and set in the middle because it is thought of as the most important name because it is your family name! For the grey sweater I decided to go with a vibrant pink monogram and for the pink sweater I decided to get a gold one that says ΧΩ and underneath of it in white it says Lambda Delta because that is my chapter’s name! I am thrilled about my two sweaters and if you live near Kent, Ohio and are looking for a cute gift for someone, or something cute for yourself you should definitely visit The Dragonfly!

The cost of both of my items including the monogram is $18! For most places online you cannot get anything monogrammed for under $30. So, remember to THRIFT THRIFT THRIFT!
