Thrifting Finds

I stopped by one of the local thrift stores on Thursday while I had some time to kill and am so glad that I did.  Take a look at what I purchased for $24.00.

2013-03-07_15-15-56_267Navy Blue wrap skirt with fruit motif.  This will be so fun to wear this summer for my no pants challenge.

2013-03-07_15-16-17_812Cute white cotton summer skirt.

2013-03-07_15-17-00_796Cute 60s style dress.

2013-03-07_15-17-57_289Brown Suite that really isn’t a suit at all.  The skirt and jacket match in color perfectly.  The jacket fits fine, but the skirt definitely needs a lining or to be worn with a slip and I think I will shorten it a bit as well to give it a more modern look.

Overall not bad for the price I paid.  What do you think?


Recent Thrift Store Finds

Today I stopped by the local thrift store to see if I could pick up any treasures and low and behold I scored three items!

014Ralph Laruen blue and white stripped T-shirt $3.00

Red Karen Scott short sleeved sweater $3.00

100% Silk Blouse in black from The Limited $4.00

I was looking for a nice crisp white blouse and a tan pair of pants and possibly a flouncy floral skirt – but alas none to be had in my size. Still looking for some retro juice glasses as well. I am happy with my purchases though and think the black silk blouse will look great with the pants I picked up last week.

Have you found any great deals lately?


Thursday Thrift Store Finds

Today I stopped by one of our local thrift stores.  As with any of these stores – it is hit and miss.  What I was looking for was some juice classes – preferably a bit retro – but alas there were none to be had.

I then took a look through the clothing section and low and behold….. I found these:

001Perry Ellis Shoes – $6.00

Chadwicks Silk Blouse – $4.00

Daila Collection Linen Pants – $4.00

Beaded Handbag – $4.00

Total: $18.00

I am very pleased with my purchases – everything fits well and there are no stains or even scuff marks on the shoes.  In keeping with my Seamless Challenge – I think I did quite well.

My work life will be changing shortly and I will need to spend more time in the office so these items will come in handy.
