I was so excited to finally get to meet Elissa and have her show me some of her favorite spots, and let me tell you: This lady knows her schizz-nit. I wish I could take her knowledge of brands/labels and import it into my brain. She helped me identify several vintage items, and I walked out of two thrift stores that day with an armload of blazers, a sweater and a scallop-neck dress, all of which are are gorgeous! And lucky for you, they'll be making their way into the store...

There's one other blazer I brought home and absolutely fell in love with, so it's staying with me! I even wore it the next day and the manager at Anthropologie asked if I got it at Urban, to which I happily told her it was vintage and I had just thrifted it.

|The shoulders are my fav part!|
She was super sweet and asked which thrift store it was. After that we got to talking and it turns out she's a new transplant to Texas from California, so we commiserated for a little bit about what we miss from the West Coast. I told her she'll learn to love the Midwest, just give it some time to let the culture shock subside. :)
Well that's it for part one. Tomorrow I'll share with you what I found on our journey back to St. Louis from Texas. The hubs, great man that he is, let me add a good five hours to our trip just to let me stop and thrift...whatta man! :)
