Summer Ready Thrift Haul

I don't normally shop 50% off sales at the thrift store because of the crowds but the way the prices are rising, a sale day is worth the long lines. Luckily, I found a store that wasn't super packed. I guess everyone was firing up the grill for the unofficial beginning of summer. My thrift haul ended up being $36 but the retail value was over $900!

I wasn't familiar with Charlotte Brody New York but when I picked this dress up I knew it was a designer piece. The fabric is good quality and the stitching inside is impeccable. If you turned the dress inside out it would be just as beautiful. I wasn't able to find this exact dress but others retail $500 on the website.


The bikini top is super cute and I plan to wear it on very hot days and not as a swim top. I like the cut out design and the pastel purple color.

It looks like someone wore the Vince Camuto lace up wedge once and said no. There's no wear on the heel caps. I like the neutral color and that there's all over coverage in a sandal. I'm not too keen on the the color of the wooden wedge. I will probably do a diy on the heel to cover it. I couldn't find this style but similar ones go for $80 on sale.

I absolutely love the print on this vintage skirt and bought it even though it is too small. I think it would make a fabulous ruffle trimmed off the shoulder top or I can just chop the waist until it fits!

J. Crew is one of those brands that I buy because I know how they fit me and the quality is always good. The vivid colors in this haul was a score. The shorts retail $40 and tropical floral boy shirt was $88 retail.

Another pair of brightly colored shorts for the closet. These were brand new with the tag attached. The thrift store sale price was $5. That's a little steep but I overlooked because it was Brooks Brothers and new.

Light throw on dresses are so easy in summer. The vintage print dress on the left looks amazing on. The back is open and it has a lot of flattering detail. The mannequin isn't doing it justice at all. The print spaghetti strap dresses are get up and get out the door style. No fuss and easy.

You may be wondering about the Coldwater Creek one at the end. It's a project. I liked the sheer watercolor print. I'm hoping to turn it into something a little less dowdy. Who knew there dresses retail $80 and up?

I finally found some goodies for Violet too. She's growing so fast. Have you seen her lately? I posted a pic of us in our matching dashiki dresses. Since school's out and she can wear whatever she wants to wear, she needs more options in her closet.

What have you thrifted lately?
