Happy Saint Patrick’s Day

It’s Friday, it’s Saint Patrick’s Day, it’s time for Shamrocks and shenanigans! We hope everyone is wearing their most fabuless shade of green today and will have the luck of the Irish with you!

We also just wanted to remind you that you don’t have to have a pot of gold to look fabulous. Just head to one of your local thrift stores and check out the amazing rainbow of colorful clothing you can find. And we are sure among this rainbow is some green so that you  won’t run the risk of  getting  pinched!

Vicky and I got dressed up in our “greenery” and took a quick stroll through Goodwill to see if the leprachauns will bestow any good luck onto us. As it turns out we did have a little luck and came away with a few finds, which we would like to share with you.

The Wearing of the Green



Vicky and black skirt

Vicky’s beautiful find

Vicky had been looking for something to wear for our shared Birthday party we are planning next weekend when she discovered this beautiful black sheer lace skirt. So you should be  able to see it on her soon, as I am sure we will share some pics from our party. You know we will be wearing something we have thrifted!

Love this skirt I found with the bird design. Brand Old Navy

Teresa Bird skirt


I like that I can wear this skirt now with a long sleeve blouse, but I can also wear it into Spring and Summer by wearing a cami or t-shirt and sandals.

Another skirt I found that I believe I can wear now and into Spring and Summer. Here I paired it with an off the shoulder blouse that I thrifted last year along with a wide belt I had purchased from GW earlier in the season.

Old Navy Brand Sun Dress

My last find was this purple and gold floral print sundress. Can’t wait until the weather gets warm enough to wear it! Hopefully soon, but you never know about the weather in the South!

So that is it for the treasures we found at the end of the rainbow, (or in our case at the end of the aisle), but to sign off we would like to leave you with a couple of Irish Blessings we hope you will enjoy.


May your troubles be less

and your blessings be more

And nothing but happiness

come through your door


May your pockets be heavy

and your heart be light

May good luck pursue

each day and night

Till next time be thrifty and stay fabuless!


Vicky and Teresa
