Ladies and maybe one Gentleman, I am under budget for a thrift haul. My goal has always been to spend no more than $20 total or $3 per item. I averaged $2.70 an item even with Lilly Pulitzer and Ann Taylor in my haul!
I'm thrifting less but I've been way over budget. Fifty bucks last month. Love my finds but yikes.
My original intent when I started out on my thrift voyage was to go back to the Goodwill I went to last month because the merchandise and ambiance were pretty amazing. Lots of brands I love and it wasn't super crowded.
However, America's Thrift opens early and I can head straight there after dropping V at school. Super convenient.
Let us begin.
The bag, body shaper, and fabric were found on the way to checkout. The impulse buys....
The bronze colored bag is similar to the reversible one in the This or That thrift haul. I like that this one has a strap and the asymmetrical flap closure.
I think the Givenchy body shapers are deadstock because there was a huge selection of them. Hmmm, probably should have bought some for friends! Next time?
I liked the colors in the fabric and I'm going to start sewing more. *pinky swear* Yes, I know I say that every year and have had it on vision boards for the past 3 years.
Calypso St. Barth for Target skirt
Another one of those Target finds I vow never to get. It was $2 and I really liked the unique color combination so in the cart it went. Here's hoping it can hold up in the wash.
Ann Taylor pink chiffon maxi skirt
The fit is so much better than the one I have so now I will need to donate that one. If you can fit a medium to an x-large, holla at me.
Love Tree Chevron cardigan
It's perfect for my new obsession with belted cardigans and I love chevron print.
Lilly Pulitzer corduroy skirt
I saw the puppies peaking out of the aisle and had to see what it was. It appealed to my questionable fashion tastes and I like that! Part ugly. Part cute. Way to cute. It needs some edge. Anyhow, I was surprised to discover it was preppy and posh royalty -- Lilly Pulitzer. The cheapest skirt on their website is $100!
The Other Blues
Blue is not a color I'm naturally attracted to. Funny I found 4 items (the Tarjay skirt included) that I liked.
A cowboy shirt that's missing a button. Didn't know it at the time. I probably would have left it behind had I followed the thrift rule of thoroughly inspecting garments. I'll fix it before the year is out. Maybe.
I'm still building my sweater collection so I'm glad to have found this one from Belk's Kim Rogers line. It's soft and roomy and will look great as part of the mom uniform.
I love vintage skirts and this one has a faux front split, elastic waist, and big patch pockets. All details I love. It can work for all seasons too.
What have you thrifted lately?
