Yucaipa

Today I went thrifting in the town of Yucaipa, CA. If you have never heard of it, google it. My family has a long history in this town that I won't bore you with. If you really want to know you can look up my grandpa at the Yucaipa Historical Society, and read the books he has helped write, really. Basically, my mom and I just turned onto Yucaipa Blvd and cruised it for thrift stores. We went to 5 stores in total and one antique jewelry store that was so amazing. Here is my thriftperience at "Thriftique" on the corner of California St. and Yucaipa blvd. Good, clean store, kinda high prices but my sponsor took care of that.



After I made my purchases in my Harajuku Lovers sandals.



OMG! Cinderella's plastic slippers! Didn't buy them, which means...they can be yours!



Look at this beautiful ugly sweater. I got it. It was 6 dollars which was higher than my normal prices, but I had a sponsor (who I will reveal later).



Mexican Cinderella drinks fake tea in Thriftique.



"That's gonna look great with your Spanx," said my sponsor.



Didn't get this rainbow number, its just not me.



Flashing my hot pink sequin cut out dress on Yucaipa Blvd which is tore up right now. "Pardon our dust" they say.



My sponsor!

About her: She is my mom, she doesn't normally wear wigs, she did once when I was in 5th grade and I cried, she ate a donut with her dinner tonight, she refused to buy me an antique Garfield fish tank, she told me, "Sometimes you are so smart, other times you think out of your butt hole."

That's all for today. What a good day even though I got ditched by my niece. Will reveal more of my finds later as I style them. Take care and be safe, the internet and certain thrift stores, can be creepy places.

  1. Ha. Leave it to a mom to tell you that you need Spanx and then NOT buy you a Garfield fishtank. At least you got sponsored. You got an eye for style.
