Oh wow what a fantastic competition! I'm so glad we can enter more than once because I could never pick just one outfit:)). Thank you so much for sharing Erica! Xo

This sounds really fun, I do agree! I better get to thrifting then. I sure hope the church will held another rummage sale though because that is where I get dirt cheap clothes. Thank you so much for letting us know! :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone's op shop finds and how they put them all together, will try to get a couple of entries in. Great idea Erica.
