All I needed to complete my 50s costume was a pink scarf. I'd already found the poodle skirt at Goodwill last month, and got a pink jacket at Halloween City a week ago yesterday, with a 20% off coupon from their website. The store had some 50s scarves, but I wanted to see if I could find a cheap one if possible from a second-hand store.
I wanted to get pink striped shirt to wear with the skirt and jacket, and lo and behold, a pink striped shirt surfaced at Goodwill on Wednesday. It was 20% off yellow tags that day, and this was a yellow tag, so that was perfect. Well, today, I walked into another thrift store in my hometown, and everything was half-off today. I asked one of the ladies who volunteers at the store if they had any scarves and she showed me where they were. A pink one was there! I grabbed it immediately and went to look around the store some more before paying. Well, that was great! I'm done now!
