Thrifted Treasure: Frye, Betseyville, tees and midi skirts

Every Monday at my local Unique there's a 50% off sale. I hardly ever go anymore because it's hard to navigate with V and the masses. I was feeling adventurous so I went for a quick drive by intending to look through the skirt aisle only.

I'm also showing off my new mannequin Carrie. One of the Thriftanistas in the club bought 2 at a store closing sale. She knew I wanted one and graciously agreed to sell it to me.

Carrie's body is very Sara Jessica Parker. Small and shapely.

This is.....

What I Thrifted

purple striped tee from Divided by HM (2.50)

pink and green floral button front midi skirt ($2)

yellow Ann Taylor Loft skirt ($2)

purple and red Old Navy tee ($2)

Betseyville chain strap purse ($3.50)
I love Betsey Johnson's "eff it" style. She doesn't care about trends. She just says I like sequins, I like flowers, I like pink. I'm putting it all on a purse. That's how I imagine her design process works.

Party in the front and party in the back!

Frye sandals ($5)
These will probably end up on eBay. They look brand new. There's no wear on the bottom. My post baby shoe size is 8 1/2. These are an 8. Too small? My heel is right at the edge. 

I visited a couple of estate sales over the weekend. I didn't buy much. This sale happened to be really expensive and they didn't slash prices until 3 hours before end of sale. Boo.

vintage italian made leather decanter ($15) for E's fancy cognac

vintage aviator sunglasses ($2)
E ended up claiming these. They are super dark!
Hi toes!

What have you thrifted lately?

OMG that Betsy Johnson purse was a GREAT find! I agree with you on how her design process must work. She's so carefree and whimsical and fun... and so are her designs.

I've been on the hunt for a mid-90's Betsy Johnson velvet dress, haha.

And I love the way that striped top and the floral skirt look together!

The sandals are cute and don't look too small but I don't like for my sandals to be exact if you know what I mean. I actually went to the the thrift store yesterday and even though I didn't find anything I was entertained. Some young guys came in and started trying on ladies dresses. They seemed to pick the most dreadful Granny dresses to try on too.

Lots my friend, I have gotten a dress, h&m shirt, leather jacket, gold belt I made into a necklace. At my local goodwill I like to stop a couple times a week because it is convIently located by my house, they have two pairs of frye boots, they are a 7 1/2 to big but man someone could get lucky. I have gotten a pair of Kate spade pumps there before. I love my kids love the thrift store, my 5 year son has obsession with boys silky basketball shorts:)
