I’m trying to fill up a wishlist on Amazon with like new sheets and other things I will probably want to own for my room in the fall

but I keep accidentally filling my ModCloth cart full of shoes instead


Do you use any products in your hair and if so what do you use? I love your hair and am thinking about getting a similar cut! :D

Just a few! I’m married to Garnier Curl-Sculpting Cream Gel. I think it does a good job for the price, though it smells kinda plasticy. Defines my curls reasonably well with the help of a blow dryer. Also does a good job fighting frizz and waking up slept on hair without leaving it crusty or gunky.

I also have something called Care Free Curl, which I tried when the above creme was  out of stock. It’s mostly intended for black natural hair I think, so I have to suspect that it doesn’t quite work as intended for my hair. It’s a little heavier and thicker than I’m used to, but it does a good job. 

Right now I’m using another Garnier product as well, De-Constructed Pixie Play. It was magic when my hair was shorter…but it’s not doing so well as it grows out. Still, if you’re planning to stay at the length I have now, it’s nice (and cheap!!!). No heaviness, no crust, no weird gel flake. Keeps pillow-crushed hair looking human and adds a little volume. I like it.

My birthday present to myself is gonna be Bumble and Bumble hair gel to replace it, unless someone can suggest something better. I’m excited. Gonna sculpt me some magical girl hair.

truth is I am very sick and I have not chosen a winner yet

I have no energy for anything

Friends! Thrift-o-Rama is turning 2!

On July 25, 2012, I posted my first outfit of the day. It’s crazy to think two years have gone by. I’m so honored by the love, support and friendship I’ve found in you people. Thank you for reading Thrift-o-Rama. Thank you for celebrating bodies and thrift stores and lipstick with me. I don’t have words for how much you’ve all touched me, I really don’t.

The best way I know how to thank you is to give away a thrifty gift. The winner gets:

1. You’re in Luck Dress in Lady Bug, size 2X. This dress is no longer available at ModCloth, period. It’s beautifully made and would probably best fit a size 18-20. Maybe a 22 if you’re small in the bust. I wish I was keeping it, but it’s too big for me. Tried on but never worn. I’ve included some pictures of me in the same dress in a different print for fit reference. Message me for exact measurements and details on the dress itself.

2. A portrait! See above for an example of my art, though I won’t rush through yours as I did mine.

3. “Mystery Thrift Store Jewelry.” This will be a surprise. Various strange necklaces and earrings thrifted in my travels will be sent to you. I hope you like them. The winner can tell me if they have pierced ears or allergies and I’ll do my best to oblige.


1. This is a gift to my followers. You must be following me.

2. US residents only, please. Sorry. International shipping is very very expensive. The winner needs to give me an address.

3. Likes and reblogs count, but you can only reblog once a day.

4. If the winner doesn’t respond within two days, I’ll pick someone else.

This giveaway ends Sunday, July 27th, 5PM central time, at which point a winner will be chosen at random.

Last day to enter!!!!

I think someone asked about overalls the other week on here. City chic an Australian plus size clothing brand (ships internationally) just brought some out. They're a skirt bottom but if that person was still interested or anyone. That's an opinion :)

I can’t seem to find them online, but I don’t think I know how to navigate their website effectively. Check it out, interested parties!
