Back before thrifting was a “cool thing to do,” I took just a few dollars a month and went to thrift shops in Starkville, Mississippi (not far from where I grew up) in search of vintage gems and clothing items to DIY. I found so many awesome things–some of which I still wear on the blog to this day. Now, at this time in my life when I told people that I was thrifting, they looked at me like I was “weird” or that it was “gross” to buy second-hand clothes…then Macklemore came out with a song that made thrifting popular among the “cool kids.” In fact, because of that song, thrifting almost became as cool as hanging out in the Sonic parking lot on Saturday nights *wink* 

Now, this past weekend, I went thrifting around Johnson City, TN with my parents where we stumbled upon a small store called Thrift Shop at Boones Creek which benefits the Haven of Mercy Ministries. For only $10, I got two skirts (one leather–it’s currently at the dry cleaners), a sweatshirt, a blouse (with the tags still on it–score!), and two vintage necklaces. *GASP* Why can’t mall shopping be that budget-friendly?! I mean–this Weekly Whistle outfit only cost me $3, and it looks like something straight out of an Urban Outfitters catalog *wink*

Now, without further ado, take a look at this week’s Weekly Whistle and get your thrift on while I get my cuddle-buddy (Ziva–my precious Giant Schnauzer) and binge on Limitless (my latest TV show obession). Bring it on winter storms! *wink*
