After my last post I realized most of my outfit was thrifted items. Neat!
But …I actually used to be a thrifting snob. But one day I figured out it that it is great for shopping on a budget. A guilt free way to subdue a shopping craving. You can walk in with under $50 dollars and walk out with bags full.
Have you ever considered thrifting? Cause you should!
Check out some of my thrifted outfits:
After one of my first trips to “Goodwill” – I came back with such a haul that i could make a couple outfits with them.
And there they are!
Thrifted items: Sheer blouse, flare skirt, peak toe heels, striped button shirt, black purse, and fitted skirt.
Not too shabby eh?!
This outfit has two of my favourite thrifted pieces:You have an adorable checkered sweater, with this royal blue hounds tooth skirt.
When you enter the business world, you feel the need to have a business wardrobe. Well a budget friendly way to get one is to check out your local thrift store.
This outfit has two thrifted items: the finely checkered pant, and the bold blue top.
Not only can you find some great outfits through thrifting but you can also find some great statement pieces!
This gold and black purse is thrifted. When i found it, my jaw literally dropped. It was beautiful and i clutched at it while i continued to shop. No one was taking this beautiful baby from me.
This wool skirt is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe, and it was thrifted!
I hate hanging up skirts and dresses for the winter, but this wool skirt keeps me fashionably warm even in a skirt through the coldest winters.
Lastly this pink scarf and leather jacket are thrifted items. And they are some of my “most-worn” items in my wardrobe.
I love leather jackets, and this thrifted one is my warmest and therefore worn a great deal.
And this scarf is so pretty it always adds a lot to any outfit i pair it with.
There are treasures hiding in thrift stores. All you got to do is find them!
Stay tuned soon for a “how to: thrift” post.
I’ve been told by my local thrift store cashier that: “I always find the best items! Every time she looks, she never finds anything”
Well I’ll pass my secrets on to you!
