Top 10 Favorite Thrift Store Flips

There are some thrift store pieces that really capture my heart. Either I wanted them for myself and it wasn't a good fit for me or my lifestyle or I knew that someone else would love it and I must get it in that persons hands. The past month has been fruitful with fun little gems that also turned a decent profit on eBay, Poshmark, or Etsy. These are my recent favorites that found new homes.

All Vintage in Safari Top and Jean Skirt

I've found that my clothes sell faster online when I wear them versus when I put them on the mannequin or laying flat. That's what inspired today's thrifted outfit. I usually wear the clothes that fit and and look good on me. I also treat it as a chance to play dress up in outfits that don't have a place in my lifestyle. Today's dress up is a vintage jean skirt. Love the style but it's a bit too small.

I've had it in my Poshmark closet for a year. I originally had it posted with a collage of button front denim skirt outfits found on Pinterest. I wanted to show how awesome and on trend this skirt could be. It got a lot of likes but hung out in the Posh closet through all of the seasons without any bites. I actually had three of the same style and two others that were button front flared that all sold. Obviously, I have a thing for jean skirts.


How to Upsize A Shirt Dress

I bought a shirt dress on Poshmark that was exactly the style that I turn to in summer. It's long. It's cotton. It's easy to throw on.  Plus, it has pockets. The measurements seemed about right in the description so I took a chance on it. The chest and back area turned out to be too tight. That button at the chest could pop at any second and the one at the waist could go too if I eat a big meal. I made lemonade out of lemons with an easy upsize trick.
