$1 wednesdays...

i like the title of this post...

$1 wednesdays

in the midst of the rising prices at many of our favorite thrift stores, some of you are really great about sneaking in a good deal or two.

such is the case with, chandra.

she emailed me and told me this dress cost her only, $1. hard to believe...but

i always believe you don't a mule and a cow (phrase from my mother) to get an amazing look. 

as you can tell, she paired her inexpensive dress with a pair of statement heels and few modest accessories. needful to say, i am totally in love with her style and her blog. as a matter fact she sent me another $1 find some time ago. i will reshare it again very soon.

check out more of her amazing and timeless style right here on her blog, http://momomod.com/

tell me ladies...and gents...how did she do on her $1 find?
what have you found for $1? 

my NEW HOUSE...sort of

has it been busy around these parts? yes. before i go any further, if you are interested in an INTERNSHIP or PART-TIME position with Mr. Goodwill Hunting and Rashon Carraway Designs, please email us your resume and in the subject line write "INTERNSHIP or PART-TIME"

alright...so about this new house...sort of.

for quite the time i have been really intrigued with shipping container homes (some call them storage container homes). i guess my initial attraction to them was the fact they were so inexpensive to buy and could really be formatted into a pretty swank design. lets take a look at a few.
when i first saw them i thought they would be a great project for mr. goodwill hunting. this would be great as n eco-friendly movement and would certainly make a NEW HOUSE for me, sort of.

as i began to look further, i realized i was only scratching the surface of the possibilities of what shipping containers can do. take a look.
wow. amazing.

i truly do believe this is the start of a great eco-friendly movement. and to imagine that the idea really started off like this...
...a way of creating housing for the impoverished.

since this isn't a short term or long term planning idea for me, i won't go into details regarding price, zoning restrictions or how they are made. honestly, i just don't know.

i do know that the idea is fantastic and it worth exploring.

perhaps this may be my new house...sort of...

so could you live in a shipping container home?

a new experience...

offering amazing vintage menswear pieces gives me great joy. so it is only fitting that i make the shopping experience...better.

friday finds: $5 chairs

so i was out doing some shopping and popped into one of my favorite second hand stores. i headed to the furniture department and saw these chairs. there were $10 each, which was amazing!
but since it was half off day they were only $5!

i texted a friend to see if she wanted them and by the time i turned around...SOLD!
