You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Bringing the 80’s back

One of my best friends Zahara has finally returned from her six month trip to Israel. She was gone way too long. As you can imagine, moving back and forth overseas doesn’t allow you to keep many clothes. In order to restock her wardrobe (and lets be honest, mine is sadly lacking too) we hit one of our favorite thrift stores.

It doesn’t look like much, and finding the good stuff is a lot of work but it’s more about the company than anything else.

It took us a couple of hours but I found a bunch of great stuff. I ended up with eight shirts, two pairs of pants, a bag and a dress (see below) for less than $35. Mind = blown

Plus there’s the fun, silly part in finding gems like this:

Next trip is to Hawaii and she’s wearing this*

By far the best thing we found was my awesomely awful 80’s prom dress

Notice the inside is lined with the same red satin that’s on the top. Awesomeness.

The funniest part is, it fits me perfectly. Now I just need somewhere to wear this sexy thing. Who is hosting an 80’s theme party? Or maybe I will. Who wants to come?

Thrift shopping brought back so many memories from when we were in high school. I’m so glad she’s back in the country. Life is way more fun when I have my friends around.

*Not really


I need to take yoga or something


Totally Spoiled


  1. I’d recognize that color coordination anywhere: UNIQUE!! hehe

  2. I had a sundress in the exact same print, sans rainbows, as the one being tried on by Zahara when I was six years old. My great grandmother brought it back for me from Hawaii and I wore it till it fell apart. So my vote is for Zahara’s get-up, albeit for sentimentality only.

  3. That’s hilarious that it was the same pattern! What a small world. She did not end up buying the dress. It was about 14 sizes too big. Also, it was not exactly her style, haha.

  4. You guys look like you had so much fun! How wonderful to have your friend back! And a friend with such a great sense of humor she let you post a photo of her in that hideous purple mu-mu!

    You did ask her, right?

  5. Haha, yes she was shown and she approved the photo. I’m a good friend like that. She’s also a good sport 🙂
