Thrift Store Haul...again.:)

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I only went  to the thrift store because I was with my mother. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

As my know, my mother is thrifting/hussling type of broad, so she, the kids and I were all out and about in Spartnaburg and we stopped at her favorite thrift shop ran by the Safe Homes/Rape Crisis Coalition. Its a pure gem of a place. The problem is....its not open on the weekends.

Anyway...I scored some great vintage goodies and a pair of Jones New York cream lined slacks on my mom. She actually bought me something that wasn't a Christmas or Mother's Day present.O_o



Contessa  100 % genuine leather clutch...beautiful condition inside and out....
Here's the tag...still researching info on this bag...any vintage heads got any let me know....
Vintage Buxton wallet....brand new....they still sell Buxton but you can tell this is an oldie...
Calculator in the wallet...not functioning....how retro. lol!


Signed scarves.....
Kreier- A European brand...hand rolled edges....
Vintage Echo...they still make Echo but the script deems these vintage....
And YASSSSSS!!!! Christian Dior! I want to wear this in a pocket of a blazer or plus size coats for women or something.....



Total cost of everything: $5.


~Review~ mark. Got To Glow Gradual Glow Body Moisturizer....


Ok....I'm already dark skinned....ya'll know that. lol! But I like to be bronzey too. I tan a bit in the summer but not evenly because I won't lay in the sun....chile please. So, today, I'm reviewing mark. Got To Glow Gradual Glow Body Moisturizer, a self-tanning product I got to try in lieu of me sweating like a pig in the Southern sun.:)


Here to scoop on Got To Glow:


mark Got to Glow Gradual Glow Body Moisturizer with SPF 15 ($14) – this gradual glow body lotion provides a radiant, natural-looking tan while protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful rays with SPF 15.  This lotion builds a healthy color and leaves skin with a light shimmer and glow.  Perfect for extending the life of a tan or for giving natural, subtle color.


Pros:

-I really enjoyed the lightweight moisturizer. Its not heavy, soaked into my skin evenly, and had a light tropical scent
-It worked! It evened out my tan over a period of two weeks.


Cons:
-It has a shimmer to it that I could live with out.
-I think the packaging would fair better in a bottle with a pump. But I think all lotions and creams should be in a bottle with a pump. lol!


Overall:
-I like it!!! If anything, its a great lightweight moisturizer WITH a sunscreen all ready included. Good summer buy.:)
