Thrifted: Messenger Bag

If there is one thing I always make sure to check out when thrifting it's the bags. Most stores have a luggage area and you can find some awesome Vintage suitcases, old trunks and as you can see.. messenger bags. 


This one was only $1.50! It's perfect for carting my files and snacks to and from the office. 

In other news, I broke down and got the Ecote Intarsia Cardigan I've been eyeing and mentioned on my cozy sweater post. I got my paycheck and one thing led to another.. you know how that goes..

I figure since I mostly shop at thrift stores I can afford an over-priced (but oh so comfy) purchase every now and then. (Justification..)

Over the weekend I went thrifting with our friend Lauren (who is the sweetest!) and I'll be sharing my finds soon!
