Show & Tell: Thrift Haul

As you all have been aware, I’m a self proclaimed thrift fiend. Any chance I get, I hit up random thrift store in hopes of scoring. Below I’ve compiled a few pics of some of the items I’ve managed to get my fingers on within the past month.

I purchased this dress for $15 from a vintage store in Noho. It’s a sheath style dress with stretch lining and shoulder pads. (I apologize in advance for poor picture quality. I clearly need to work on my edit skills -_-)

Can you believe that this sweater was $10?! It’s Ralph Lauren and has this metallic paint-like substance on it. I have no idea what it is, but it makes this cable-knit sweater extremely weighty.


Jumping on the sheer top bandwagon, I scored this extremely long turquoise sheer blouse from the thrift store for $6.  A top like this will easily go for $20 and up at Forever 21 or H&M.

How it looks Tucked in

 Below, I paired it with a faux silk mustard colored midi skirt also purchased at the same store, for $4.

My apologies for horrible picture quality 🙁

Office Vintage
How cute is this little no button blazer? It’s so 80s with the puffy shoulders and detailing.  This was $10.

As you can see, there’s no telling the little treasures you can score at your local thrift, vintage, or goodwill stores.  I suggest you all give it a try. Dont know how to begin? My next blog post will help.

    ok, so either i need to go shopping with you or you need to consider being my buyer, lol. i love your finds, especially the sequined dress and no button blazer. my love for shopping has faded some over the years after not being able to find stylish clothes that fit me properly and were not too expensive. my choices have expanded but my patience has not grown with my choices. i know that some of the bloggers' groups do shopping trip occasionally, but would you consider doing one?

    Hi Asha, I know all-too well about the lack of patience shopping can develop-especially when you know what you want but can't fit it. A shopping trip sounds pretty good actually. Hmm, that's something to look into. Thanks for the idea. Im currently working on my next blog post- Thrifting 101. So stay tuned for that probably tomorrow.
