I haven't had much luck at the thrift stores lately. Everytime I go, everything seems really picked out. I recently went with my friend and I actually found quite a bit! (Thanks to her!)
I didn't find anything designer, but I found a few good pieces for going out.
1. Vintage 70's Dress - $3.50
It's been a long time since I've found a piece of vintage clothing at the thrift store. I was thrilled to pick up this 1970's poly number. I haven't decided if I want to keep the length or hem it. I really like the eastern influence on the bodice. It was also half off!
2. Forever 21 Dress - $6
This was the second most expensive at six dollars. I took it with me though because I actually tried things on and I liked the way it fit. I'm a sucker for shift dresses. An easy dress for a night out.
3. Forever 21 Romper - $5
I fell in love with this romper. It fits perfectly! Another easy look for going out.
4. Velvet bodysuit - $5
I think this is one of the most "modern/trendy/new" pieces I've thrifted. It's super relevant to what's currently being sold in stores. I already wore this with black jeans, leather jacket, and booties.
5. Vintage 1980's leather skirt - $5
My friend found this skirt for me! I've purchased a couple of leather skirts from thrift stores, but this one fits just right. It's also the perfect length.
6. Levi Jeans - $7
I never think about looking at the jeans, but lately I've been wanting a pair of mom jeans. My friend and I looked at every singe pair of jeans! I was surprised to find regualr skinny fit Levi's. I've already worn them a bunch of times!
Here they are!
7. Haviana's - $4
These Havaiana's were half off! They usually retail between $25-$30, so it was a bargain. They're gently used and I don't own a pair of flip flops. (I know lol)
I've been thrifting, but haven't been posting as much. I swear I'm going to get better at posting. I have a couple other hauls that I need to share!
Lately, my go to thrift store is Texas Thrift. It's enormous and is constantly being restocked. However, it's always PACKED!
I think this haul shows how obvious I want it to be cool outside.
Handbag: 1. Vintage 80's - $10
When I saw this purse, I immediately thought of this lion purse I thrifted from this haul. Like the other purse, I love the quirky detailing of the crocodiles. I love that it perfectly finds my wallet, keys, and sunglasses. The stitching is impeccable which makes the bag look expensive. There's no label and how I wish it did. I'll never know who makes this bag. I did find something kind of similar here.
This linen blouse is great for these super hot days; it also drapes really nicely.
2. Vintage 90's - $4
I was stunned to find this blouse, which is extremely similar to top no. 5 from this haul. I love the floral embroidery and it's a beautiful shade of navy.
3. Flannel Button Up - $5
I know, it's crazy hot outside! But, I couldn't pass up this basic flannel. I know this will get worn A LOT.
4. Ralph Lauren Tunic - $5
This lightweight, creamy tunic is super easy to dress up or down. Another piece that I will get a lot of wear out of.
Skort/Skirt 1. Vintage 60's Skort - $3
I don't remember if I've already talked about how hard it is to find true vintage these days on here. Well, it is! I can't even find 70's pieces anymore, I blame all those online sellers. I was extremely happy when I found this and the next piece! A plus because they fit like a glove.
2. Vintage 60's Neiman Marcus Skirt - $3
Isn't it funny how this looks like the skort? I'm not crazy about the calf length, so I might hem it. Although I'm afraid it might loose it's A-line shape.
It had taken me several months before I had a free day to visit Family Thrift Oultet in Fort Worth! I always leave with a large bag of clothes for under $40. You really can't beat that! Everything is always $2 on Thursdays! I found a few gems including Milly and Armani Exchange. Here's what I found!
1. Faux Gucci?
I quickly grabbed this without inspecting it. It looks authentic excpet for the plac that says Gucci, is slightly crooked. There's a serial number and everthing though. What should I do with it?
This nautical inspired shift dress will be perfect for casual outings.
2. Mark and James by Badgley Mischka
The crepe material of this one shoulder dress is what caught my eye. I had no idea that Badgley Mischka had a cheaper line. I couldn't find much info on the brand, but you can find it on Rent the Runway! The couple of dresses they have retail between $345 and $660. It was definately a steal! I just need an occasion to wear it to.
Finding designer pieces at the thrift store is the best feeling ever. I don’t remember if I’ve ever written about finding my Prada coat. I’ve had it for about 3-4 years now and I scored it at Thrift Town! It was only $29!
I remember skimming through the coats when I eyed the gorgeous olive toned coat. The fabric felt of high quality and when I look to check the size, I was stunned to see it was Prada. It was even more exciting to see it was my size.
As for the Escada blouse, it’s one of my many thrifted pieces from them.
