The Week in Review: Just Feel Like Dancing

Let's Go Thrifting Blog-001
Dancing like an ass. Party of one.

Ever have one of those weeks that finds you pleasantly surprised, elated, accomplished and just plain ol’ giddy? I think if it were possible to achieve such a combination of emotions, I have… in just these last seven days. In all honesty, I’m not sure how many of these feelings were evoked by thrifting alone. But I’ll tell ya something: Walking around with this kind of impossible mental lightness does throw out some positive thrift karma. At least this is what I like to think. 

Picture it, if you will. Me. Twirling and shaking hips all over the bedroom, happily plucking the clothes from my closet that are now simply too big to wear. Singing along to that sultry-sweet 60’s sound of one of my favorite garage rock compilation albums, stuffing a garbage bag with all of the clothes and unwanted items to take to Goodwill. 
And when that bag was filled… I danced around some more. 

This is just the kind of thing you do in the privacy of your own home and never, ever admit to anyone. Ah hell, except maybe the folks that read your blog. 

I say if you’re gonna feel good about something be it thrifted, earned, borrowed or bought you may as well do it right. 

What has you dancing these days?

Those moments are the best - nothing like a good dance around in one's pants! And clothes which are too big as opposed to too small? Bonus!

It is a bonus! Certainly better than doing the "I'm-trying-to-squish-into-my-pants Dance."

I used to love these comps (along with the Nuggets, pebbles etc.)
