Savers Closet Remix

savers arizonaOne of my favorite things to do in the new year is a good closet sweep.  Believe it or not I actually enjoy cleaning out my closet and getting rid of things. I will admit, sometimes it is difficult to part form some items, but in the end you will be thankful you haven’t kept that unworn blouse you “may wear someday.”  Plus it makes room for the new items I have been swooning.

Here are some helpful questions I ask myself when cleaning out my closet:
“Have I worn this in a year?”
“Is this something a woman in their 30’s would wear?”
“What would I wear this to?” -and give yourself 30 seconds
“How many times would I wear this in a year?”

Since I was in a teenager I have donated and shopped at Savers. If you have read my blog you know Savers is my all time favorite thrift store.  By donating with Savers you are not only recycling unused goods, but you are helping preserve the landfills of America.  Savers/Value Village  actually keeps 650 million lbs of reusable items out of landfills annually.  It is a great feeling to drop off the old items and an added bonus you can recycle them to people who need them.

Thrift stores are meant to be a treasure hunt so I don’t always purchase items after donating, but in the new year I like to grab a few key pieces to intermix into my wardrobe.  I wanted to show you all how easy it is to not only pick up thrifted items, but then incorporate them into your already fabulous wardrobe.   Below are some looks I put together from “new to me” items I purchased on my recent  Savers trips.

Western Wear

I couldn’t wait to soak in all the desert landscape at Tanque Verde Ranch.  I found this long fringe number that I still had not worn and knew it would be perfect.

Tanque Verde Ranch

I always love a good adventure.  Last weekend My Dapper Fellow and I ventured down south to the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch for a weekend stay of ranch life, horses and the wild, wild west.

Tanque Verde Ranch is located 2 hours south of Phoenix, AZ. The resort is equipped with all-inclusive accommodations catering 3 meals a day and endless activities to keep you happy and occupied.  Everything from hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding to yoga, fishing or sand volleyball is available. We woke up early Sunday morning and did the Breakfast Ride which was the highlight of our trip and I will share more later this week. Our Casita in the photo below was fully equipped with more than we needed.   All the rooms at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch are tv-less in attempt to get you to detach from everything necessary for the week/ed.

Vintage Levis

Happy Friday!!
Every girl needs a good pair of cut off shorts. No matter what the age or body type shorts are a must in the summer.  It seems that every year the shorts keep getting shorter and shorter in the stores and a few years back I decided I would steer clear of them and cut old jeans to make and style my own. (I have done this to more than half of the shorts I own) Even if DIY’s aren’t your thing this is the easiest thing for anyone to do. It becomes really fun when you cut, fray and style a pair of old jeans from a thrift store because there is little to no investment, these were $7!!!!!

Levi’s are hard to find so I felt like I scored with this pair from Savers.  I simply cut them and allowed them to fray naturally.  I would wear them, then wash them, wear them, and wash them, even when they didn’t need to be washed I washed them because that’s what gets them frayed the fastest.

Spring Fashion w/Savers

Oh hello there! Remember me? It’s been awhile friends and I am so glad to be back in the blogosphere.  Just in time for Spring fashion trends with Savers.  This week I will be styling several looks with different pieces I purchased from my local Savers. Savers has always been a favorite thrift store of mine. My love for thrifting began shopping at Savers in high school and continued to Vancouver when I went to college and then shopped at Value Village, their Canadian store!

Let’s talk Culottes!  No, you’re not having flashbacks of your 3rd grade teacher.  Culottes are back yo, or at least I like wearing them.  Not something for everyone I realize, but the key thing I found when styling them is to pair them with a heel to elongate your legs.  The pants speak for themselves so the rest of the outfit is simple with classic touches.  My favorite piece of this look is the VINTAGE FERRAGAMO purse!!!! It was love at first sight.  :)
