thrifiting date with my girl fiance

i never have a saturday off. it was a bit of a fluke and blessing that i got this saturday off so immediately, me and danielle made plans to have a thrifting date. we had lunch before shopping at this cute cafe/dessert spot (they had a nutella cappuccino!). Danielle is so much fun! i didn't want our date to end so we went to a little thrift store where the proceeds go to the humane society (something we're both passionate about) and found some more goodies.

i didn't take photos of all the things i bought because some will be gifts, but here's a few. Forgive the bad lighting-- danielle is probably cringing cos her photos are always well lighted or else she will wait to take them. Don't i know my girl fiance well?

we found a bunch of pretty embroideries (danielle said it was a dying art and i agree), oxford-like sandals, porcelain/china candlestick holder (i collect candle holders), and a top i wasn't sure about but i loved the "sweater" cinches at the bottom and sleeves (do you spy stella bear in the last photo? my reason for posting this... look at her tongue!).

danielle said it would go with skinny jeans and heels. That's the thing about thrifting with danielle-- we're never able to talk the other out of not buying something we're unsure about because we usually like it and can give a good reason why the other should buy it (with the top, it was the print).


i love thrifting dates and hanging out with Danielle! 

ps. have you checked out her new dot com shop? love it. and serious camera lovers? she has a film lovers dream going on!

Love the shoes very cute ; D and the top perfect choice, it's funny because sometimes there is so much clothes to chose from that you get overwhelmed but when you take it home you know you made the perfect choice ; Its always a plus to have a partner in crime when you go thrifting ; D you always find such pretty things. xoxo

Looks like so much fun! I wish I had a good thrifting buddy.

Yeah, you two are definitely bad for one another...Danielle has me modeling that crazy diminutive chair for her next blog post. J/K, you two are funny.

Micaela said...

chris, LOL! that chair will be perfect for your future baby (babies). Did your wife tell you we discussed baby names?! along with hot flashes and family craziness...

i adore your wife! and i can't wait for our winery date!

Claudia said...

I see stella! cute little thing!

Altruismed said...

awww, i had so much fun today! i'm SO glad you talked me into the chair, because if i hadn't bought it, i know i would have come home and thought about it for days...maybe longer!

you're the best thrifting fiance, and i can't wait until our next date...wine, thrifting, whatever!

XOXOXOXOXO!

those shoes are too cute!! i WANT to thrift, i just never remember. like today, would have been a good opportunity to go to some shops. the closest i got was gordman's. heh.

Cassie said...

It is so fun to have someone to shop with but like you say sometimes it isn't good when you end up talking each other into buying everything!!

Glad you had a great day off.
xx

Aw, there is nothing better than thrifting with good company! I have yet to find a great thrift store here in chicago, but the vintage stores are plentiful and amazing. I'm digging that dress, by the way. Hope you rock it soon!

Maddy said...
