TRF Picks // 4th of July

I'm hearing all the festive songs in my head as I put together this 4th of July post and currently it's "I'm proud to be an American"  

Forth of July is always one of my favorite holidays!  It means summer is in full swing, bbq's, swimming and of course fireworks.  Mark's office overlooks an area that has one of the largest fireworks shows in Dallas so we have a party up there every year.  Last year my 2 year old decided to wander off and get into an elevator by himself which literally shaved like 20 years off of my life looking for him!  We ended up finding him on the garage level.  Seriously scary.  
Anyway, this year I will be watching his every move! 

There are so many adorable 4th of July pieces out there that I couldn't fit them all in my collage.  So make sure to scroll below and click on the picture to shop!

Insta Lately // Resale Shop

Happy Wednesday Friends!

I've had so many cute things on IG lately I felt like I needed to do another round up for ya'll. 

 So those of you following me on Snapchat (jaimeshrayber) saw my experience with a resale shop yesterday, but for those of you who missed it, I am going to recap.   I few weeks ago I wrote a post on giving my advice on closet purging (here) and mentioned that I had never used a resale shop.  Well, since we have moved, I have done some major closet cleaning and decided it was time to try the resale shop.  The first one I went to today was called Plato's Closet.  Worst experience! They were so rude, went through my 2 HUGE boxes of things and basically said I didn't have enough brands like Forever 21.  I'm just curious, how do you resale something from Forever 21 when you most likely paid under $30 for it?  Trust me, I have founds some amazing things at Forever 21 through the years, but never thought to resale it.  Anyway, they had a sister shop next door called The Clothes Mentor.  I was about to just say forget it, but before I slid, not carried my 40 pound massive 2 boxes over there, I went in and told them the situation.  I could tell right away it was a step above the last place and they were happy to help me even carry my boxes in.  I had to wait about an hour, but I ended up with about $140.  Not nearly as much as I thought but I guess it's better than nothing?  I laughed to myself when I asked how they determine what they are keeping and they said "we go off of the latest trends"  I wanted to quiz them on what they considered the latest trends but decided to keep my mouth shut :)

Anyway, as I mentioned in my Closet Purge post and re-confirmed today, I would keep those old high ticket items tucked away in your closet, because these resale shops want things that are less than 2 years old, and they barely give you anything per item.  I recommend them if you have nothing to lose and you were going to donate anyway.  I wouldn't take an item there in hopes that you would actually make something decent from it.

Hope that helps!
