Thrifted Treasure: lace skirt, leather trench, and coach

After trying so hard to reign in the shopping, I had a binge. My normal max is $20 when thrift shopping and I spent $43 at the 50% off sale at Unique. There were just too many goodies and I had 2 big ticket items that were $10 a piece!

I thrifted:

a vintage Coach bag, basic black tee, and a pink pencil skirt
If the price is right for Coach, I never pass them up because of the good resale value. I do like how this one looked draped across my body so it may me a keeper.

The tee (and the ones following) were new. I never seem to have enough basic tees in my closet.

I simply loved the color on the skirt and I've been hunt for pencil skirts.


white tees from Gap and Danskin

I don't normally buy Target brand at the thrift store because the prices always seems to high for thrift. I liked the hem on this Mossimo one so I made an exception.




vintage nightgown for my Etsy
I liked the color and ruffly trim at waist and hem.

 sequin knit sweater made in Hong Kong
The sequins are so full and sparkly and it's a lambswood / angora mix. It will be able to function as a topper once the temps start to dip.
SN: Sorry about the v-flash from Carrie. She doesn't normally go around bottomless.

new with tags lace skirt from Sunny Leigh
I love the fit on this one. It's really stretch and looks great on the curves.  I do believe this is the only lace in my closet.
SN: yep now she's topless...

and this gem right here!
A leather trench with a fish tail peplum from Michael Hoban. I saw one selling online for $300 so I don't feel so bad about my $10 splurge. I absolutely love it!

What were your finds this weekend?

That coat is fierce! I love a saddle bag so that Coach (if it appears) may be mine :)

I have NEVER seen a Coach in a thrift store. Who would do that? And why can't I find one? *tantrum over* Totally digging that leather coat. I love myself some leather coats, the funkier the better. I have a fab red one that I need to find a faux fur collar for so I can look all Foxy Brown and e'erything.

My find this week were a fabulous pair of cowboy boots, you can see them here: http://livingoutsidethestacks.com/2012/09/nineteen-what-i-wore-wednesday/
