Don’t miss these incredible photos: Spring! It’s almost here … at least for some of us
The official start date for the spring equinox is March 20, but the true essence of the season may be a few weeks off depending on where you live (I’m looking at you, Chicago). If that’s the case for you, tide yourself over with these dreamy spring images that will give you hope for the impending warm weather.

My new obsession is Bang Shoes. Each color represents a different organization and 20% of proceeds go to that cause. My goal is to get all six amazing colors/ causes. 
These blue pair contribute to water by donating funds to Drop In The Bucket, an organization that believes that access to clean water is a fundamental human right and strives to bring clean water to schools in Africa. Children require an education and clean water, and they make it accessible to get both in one location.
At only $55 (high-tops are $60), these shoes are helping change the world at an affordable rate. Visit their website to for more information, to shop or to get listings on stores that carry them at www.bangsshoes.com

Love when a cause matches your outfit!

Dear Cutie-Pie,
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be keptinterested, because he knows you are interesting:
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:
You.
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,
Daddy
Happy International Women’s Day

This is so beautiful. I almost cried.

can we walk together?

GOLD. We have lots of it. Reply with how you like your gold jewelry so we an share with our readers!

Here’s Dawn’s fave AU finds: 

1. Patricia Locke gold clip-ons $45 benefits New York Cares

I’d snatch these up if they weren’t clip-ons! It’s for the woman who fears puncturing her earlobes but likes to get fearless with statement pieces like this one. 

2. Gold Chain bracelet$35 benefits Trisomy 18 Foundation

This is the perfect lazy (wo)man’s way to brighten up all my default head-to-toe black outfits. 

3. Gold clip-ons with coins $45 benefits The Bark & Meow Foundation

What’s better than gold? Silver AND gold. Love the hammered look of the last dropped gold piece. 

4. Vintage Trifari Gold & Creme enamel necklace $15 benefits Col. Potter Cairn Rescue

If I had a choice, all the jewelry on me would be older than me, and this piece comes close. The warm colors of the ivory and gold would look great with darker (of course) outfits. 

5. Hammered gold hoops $15 benefits The bark & Meow Foundation

Everyone should own at least one pair of gold simple hoops for the last-minute-just-threw-this-on-no-biggie look. This pair has a subtle complexity with the hammered textures. 

Until next time!

Love, 

Dawn 

Remember to reply with how you like your gold jewelry and we’ll share your tips/favorites with our readers!

It’s another round of Five Fav Finds featuring Dan. Dan wears many hats at WebThriftStore— charity partner bringer-on-er, customer servicer, tech guy, and grammar police— just to name a few. Here are his picks. 

1. James Joyce “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” 1916 edition benefits Cat Action Team Society (CATS), $500

Random House founder Bennett Cerf called Joyce one of only two true geniuses on the publisher’s list of authors. The other was Dr. Seuss. At times, Joyce’s language is weirder—but Portrait is not one of those times. A great chance to own a true 1st of a great novel.

2. Tree of Life, Witches Ball benefits Hearts for Love, $40

Collecting dichroic and hand-blown glass is fun, unless you have toddlers or pets. Expose this to changing light conditions and you’ll enjoy it for years, or until the cat gets to it, whichever comes first. 

3. Ice Cream Sandwich Pillow benefits Mines Advisory Group (MAG America), $12

Finally, an excuse to drool on your pillow. One of many finds on the site that prove thrift shopping is sometimes just treasure hunting and entertainment. Perfect gift for a kid.

4. Star Trek (original series) season 2 DVD benefits Trisomy18, $14.99

After almost 50 years, Star Trek still doesn’t miss a beat. So much fun. Consider this Halloween-episode exchange between Kirk and Spock, haunted by witches seemingly out of MacBeth: “Spock. Comment.” “Very bad poetry, Captain.” “A more useful comment, Mr. Spock.” 

5. Godiva Chocolate $35 Gift Card  benefits 7th District Foundation, $24

“Trust us guys, it still works.” Gourmet chocolate: simple, tasteful, tasty, classic. Discount. Can’t lose.

Until next time!

Dan
