When It Rains, I Thrift….Again!

There’s something about the tinkling or thunderous pounding of rain that makes people quarantine themselves until the wet plague is over.  While I…I welcome the rain.  Stick out my tongue at an oncoming shower, dance in it…and you better believe I’ll shop in it from now on!

Either this is Ethnic print or a funky Chevron stripe…no matter, this is still chic for the fall. Same goes for the necklace which I thrifted this week as well.

Yet another vintage goodie! This cashmere cardigan is a beautiful teal with textured gold buttons, by the brand “Mary Sachs” for Hadley. This brand was specially for the Harrisburg/Lancaster, Pa. area.

Oooo! Another vintage sweater, this semi-sheer, mightnight blue one is from Pendleton.

This light jacket or heavy cardigan (depending on how I style it) is made purely of wool by the brand Sparrow. Never heard of it…but it’s a gorgeous color and makes me feel like Little Red Riding Hood!

Yes…another blazer! But, I’m honing in on the prep school vibe it’s sending me and I’ll be sewing a patch on!

Finally, I only bought this shirt with my boyfriend in mind. I’m in love with the “boyfriend” look, especially with black leggings and these Ed Hardy brown knee-high rugby boots from Amazon!

That’s all I have for now my loves! I can’t wait to share how I styled these goodies!

As I always say…Keep it Thrifty!

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.!

image

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!

image

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!
