Thrifted Treasure: vibrant things!

Some days I actually do go to the thrift store with intentions of just looking. I tell myself I won't buy unless it's really really special. REALLY special and then I get the fever. I start putting stuff in my cart. I become attached and can't leave without my merch.

someecards.com - I shall go into the thrift store just to look.

That's what happened last week. I'm in the middle of a move (closer to the thrift store, yay!) so I definitely should not bring more stuff to pack!

Oh well, I'm an addict. I can't help myself. I paid $20 and this is....

What I Thrifted

colorful pants
Turquoise tapered jeans from Dana Buchman on the left.  Brightly colored floral pants from Alberto Makali on the right.
I think I will "skinny" them both for a more current look. I love the high waists and bright colors.

tees
Sequin shouldered tee from Boston Proper, a brand new orange tank from Old Navy, and a silky boxy white blouse. All have great little details that oomph them up a bit. Gold sequins on the tee. The tank is plain but the color is amazing. The blouse has button openings on the shoulder. 

sunnies
I snag them when I see them because I rarely find great ones among the sea of broken scratched lenses in the bin.
I've never worn aviators. I like my sunglasses super duper big and dark. I really like the way both pairs looked on so I'm giving them a try. Does anyone know the brand logo on the gold tone pair?

Wow! You got some great deals. I can never go in a thrift store and just look. I always come out with something:-)

LOL @ "the fever"... That's exactly what it is! I always
Leave with something unless I'm throwing a tantrum because I can't find something that someone snagged before I could get it.

Seriously, where do you put all this stuff.

Brad's like that at TJ Maxx and Marshall's. The other day we went to TJ for throw pillows, and he wound up making me buy four shirts. From now on, I pillow hunt alone!

What a nice quote to stand by but hard to apply. I love to shop especially at a thrifty store so that quote goes out the door with my purchased. (lol)

Wow! I still haven't jumped on the thrifting wagon but this is inspiring.

As always, great finds! I love those plastic aviators and both pairs of pants!

YUMMommy said...

This sounds like me. In the middle of a move but still shopping and bringing stuff home. LOL. But hey, who can let such great finds go to someone else?!

I haven't had luck thrifting lately. I think I need you to accommodate me.
