Thrifted Treasure: HM Sweater Dress and Turquoise Jewelry

Thrift Adventure

I went on a thrift shopping date with OnlyLaila and House Full of Nicholes this week. I bought 2 vintage wool skirts and a color blocked jersey dress for $8 and some change. First time in a long time I was under thrift budget. I rarely make it out without spending at least $20. However, I am still thinking about the purple and black blazers I left behind. I could really use them in my closet. They were both under $4 and both fit perfectly. I actually think I left the purple one by accident. I was weeding my pile and only meant to put one back. It was V's nap time and I wanted to get out before total meltdown so I wasn't really paying attention. Argh.

What I Wore

Last night I attended the launch party of Artizone Chicago and this is what I wore. The sweater dress is H&M thrifted in Ohio for $2.50. I put this dress on and I look like I've lost 10 pounds. Naturally, I love it. It's washable and nursing friendly. I topped V up before I walked out the door. :)

The clip on earrings and necklace were bought in the same store but they are not a matching set. The earrings are a shade lighter. The necklace has small gold beads between the turquoise beads. I paid $1 for each piece. I love the color. I am really digging turquoise right now.



Have you ever had non-buyer's remorse? 
Matching jewelry? Yay or nay?

You looked great! The dress fit you like a glove and the jewelry is perfect too :)
I used to have non-buyers remorse ALL THE TIME! Now I tell myself that if I have to think that hard then I dont need it. If its still there the next time I go and I still feel that I need the piece then I will get it :)

You look fantastic! That is the best $2.50 I think I've EVER seen. You are rocking that look.

I hope to stop by next week and find that you are pictured wearing some perfectly fitted inexpensive blazers!
