Thrift Haul in Reverse!

Since I’m always showingh what I buy at thrift stores I figured I’d share what I’m giving away:

My oh my has my style changed! I was practically living in the juniors section and New York and Company.

I’m proud that I’ve made a transformation…I prefer a slightly worn vintage wedge from Candies over a slinky black top from Penny’s; an obscure textured plum clutch over another black handbag. Sheesh! Now that I think about it, do I even wear black anymore?

What I’m rambling on about is that I’ve come a long way to this fashionable point. I know who I am and what I’m about and I’m confident about it.

30 here I come. ;D

When It Rains, I Thrift!

Has anyone else noticed that rain deters people from shopping?!  I did, and I used that to my advantage this weekend!

I scored some divine pieces this week on two of the nastiest rain-filled days:

Vintage vintage vintage! I can’t get enough and this perfect accordion pleated skirt has the Union Made tag and $1.50 price to prove it belonged in my closet.

This roomy pintucked/crotched tunic was hidden amongst ratty white t-shirts. It had no stains, tears or tags! Perhaps another perfect vintage find?! Of course I can’t leave this garment in its prestine state, because white never stays ! I plan to dye this a dark royal blue with dye from Dharma Trading Company.

Saw this and thought: Gold grommets! I plan to buy a 3/8th” grommet kit from the hardware store and line the lapel with them….soooo excited for this d.i.y.!

The Navy is a part of the U.S. military, right?! Sooooo, I should be able to get away with this Nautical jacket in the fall. Especially if I wear all a tight black tank, black straight leg pants and a small gold clutch!

I have looked for a wool pencil skirt in this color for so long…and I bought this one for $1.50! I think it could got very well with the tan jacket above.

I can’t wait to rip apart, sew back together and dye my thifted pieces! As always: Keep it thrifty!
