Spring Transition Thrift Haul

I'm going on vacation so instead of doing the sensible thing of unpacking my warm weather clothes, I went thrift shopping. This is how my closet grows out of control. I end up buying a whole new wardrobe before getting around to the bi-annual task of sorting through summer and winter clothes. Not to mention, I simply love to thrift.

This haul is a petite one. I found 4 dresses, a camisole, and a t-shirt. I paid $31 but the retail value is over $300. Here's what I found.

1. Neiman Marcus fan print silk dress
I love the print of the dress and the simple, elegant style. I was concerned about washing the silk dry clean only fabric but it held up very well and the colors didn't bleed all over. This style is older so I couldn't find an exact price but I don't think there's a dress at Neiman's under $100.

2. Maurices green pinstripe dress
I liked the vintage shape of this dress. I usually shy away from so much shoulder and arm exposure but I liked the way it looked when I tried it on. You don't even need a bra. It has padding that gives a nice lifted shape. No joke. I have some saggy ones and was amazed at how perky they look in the dress. Maurices is one of those cute and trendy brands and most of their dresses are in the $30.

3. Knitted & Knotted (Anthropologie) Test Pattern knit dress
The fabric says winter but the lack of sleeves says spring. It came with a charcoal grey slip underneath that looks like a plain charcoal t-shirt dress. Two dresses for the price of one! The retail price was $148.

4. Bar III (Macy's) orange drawstring maxi dress
Vivid orange color. Drawstring waist. Side split. Super soft. What's not to love? I consider this one the perfect vacation dress. It's just easy. The average price of Bar III dresses at Macy's is $79 which would be an insane price for this basic style.

5. lucy "seek bliss" t-shirt
Seek bliss is a good motto for a trip to Las Vegas, right? The quality is really good on this tee too. Lucy is an activewear brand with shirts costing as much a $59.

6. Cosabella Forever camisole
Tanks and camisoles are lacking in my closet and I've been meaning to keep a few on hand to wear under sheer tops or if I want to show cleavage but not hang completely out. I'm glad I decided to peruse the lingerie section. Tanks are often misplaced there and the price is a little bit cheaper. I was drawn to the jade color and the thinness of this cami. It was brand new with tags and the original price was $56. That's more than the entire thrift haul!
