10 Thrift Fashion Favorites of 2013

The weather outside is frightful. Seriously. There's no sun. It's rain. It's snow. It's freeze rain. This weekend was all jeans and ugly boots so here are some of my favorite thrift fashion finds of the year.

1. Sequins are my signature! They make me happy. I started the year having a hard time finding sequins in good condition but my luck turned around and I was gifted a sequin crop top on my birthday. I wore it a couple of times and loved the way it looked with the fabulous 3.1 Phillip Lim tuxedo pants from Salvation Army.

2. The recently thrifted multicolor sequin tunic is my favorite of all the sequins in the closet.  I nearly froze in cold weather and blah lighting because I was just that frantic about showing off the pristine sparkling blouse.

3. The vintage 70s dress was such an amazing find uncovered in one of the darker and dingier thrift stores. The color combination, pattern, and price made the perfect thrift shopping trifecta.

4. Loved the trendy little blue dress that paired so well with a vintage purple clutch that made the look more mature and a military blazer that gave it some edge!

I never considered red a color for me until I found the next two lovelies.

5. The 80s midi skirt with a fierce front slit. I wore it with basic black and with sequins this year. It's a great timeless piece.

6. As I do spend most of my time in SAHM casual, the $2 red sweatshirt from an estate sale was a budget friendly and much needed cold weather staple.

I found fun pants!

7. I still remember how the thrift store worker guffawed at the sight of these high waist yellow pants not knowing that they were thrift gold in my book!

8. Finding on trend silk brocade pants that are ankle length on my short stumpy legs were a true blessing from the thrift gods.

Last but not least, I showed some love for animal prints.

9. I found a pair of old school animal print jeans that were very stretchy with a high waist. I "skinnyfied" them to give them a more modern look and I just loved how it looked with my Anthropologie sweater given to me by Vintage Nut.

10. Then there was the leopard print romper that used to be a jumpsuit. It was thrifted last year but it's still one of my favorite finds.
