Today’s outfit features one of my favorite dresses. It was a perfect thrift find. I love this color, shirt dresses, sleek cuts, 3/4 length sleeves, and high waist styles. It all had that and has a perfect fit. Can you believe that it was only $12? Thus, I couldn’t resist to get it even though I have already several great dresses in my wardrobe.

There is a little consignment store in the College Mall in College close to the UAF campus. When I am running errands in that area, I always stop by for browsing. One never knows what one will find. Most of the time I leave without buying. When thrifting one has to be ok with not finding anything and leaving the store without buying. Otherwise one ends up with “closet monsters” – you know – these clothes that just take up real estate, because you never wear them.

Thrifting requires not only discipline not to buy when it is not calling your name, but also on not wasting time. Well, timing is also an important point to land awesome thrift finds.

What you need to look great at the spa

On your way to the spa go for a comfortable and practical outfit. At many spas, guests arrive in neat yoga bottoms, or lounge pants with a T-shirt, sweater or hoodie. Some guests show up in gym wear and sneakers. It is always better to be save than sorry. If you and your girl friends haven’t been at the selected spa before, check the spa’s web site for their dress code. If there is nothing mentioned, you may want to ask whether they have a dress code, when you call for booking your spots. You may also ask whether they provide robes and towels.

Pro tip:
Tie your hair back or up and don’t bother to put on makeup for the commute to the spa. When arriving without makeup you are immediately ready for treatment.
