Can I just tell you that I bought this dress for $1?! That's right. $1! I am in love with thrift stores... so in love that I may never even go to Old Navy again. Seven dollars for one size 2T dress is outrageous anyway! Outrageous, I say!
You know that world where people used to live, the one that you read about in books where people were sensible about things and thought it was as crazy as it really is to spend a lot of money on stuff that doesn't really matter... I feel like I have finally found that world and it's the world of thrift!
Clothes really don't matter, after all. So why should they ever account for more than a fraction of the money I spend? I mean, look at this little girl. There is no label on the inside of her dress that you would recognize, but she is arrayed as beautifully as the lilies of the field and I didn't strive or worry for her dress one bit.
