Thrifty Thursday

I'm back with some more thrifted finds today! I'm moving, and it'll be sad to not have my favourite thrift store right around the corner...but I'm hoping I'll find some great new ones this summer.

You may recognize one of this week’s pieces, which I actually wore to Fashion Week a few weeks ago. I’m planning to get a lot of use out of these two pieces over spring and summer! It’s time for whites and colours to take over my wardrobe once again.



First is the white cropped coat I wore to Fashion Week. Keep in mind if you find a jacket like this, you have to be careful what you wear it with if you’re going to wear it buttoned-up. It masks a defined waist, so I recommend wearing it open, so that your waist can still be seen, or wearing it with pants or shorts.




Store: Salvation Army
Store section: Blazers
Brand: Forever 21
Price I paid: $3.99
What it’s worth: ?


I'll have to save this one for next fall, but I just couldn't resist the polka dots and bow <3




Store: Salvation Army
Store section: Dresses
Brand: Korean label, unknown
Price I paid: $5.99
What it’s worth: approx. ?


This dress is one of my most prized thrift finds so far! It’s 100% silk, the colour is a super rich fuschia, and it’s worth quite a bit! It’s just a tad too big, but with a skinny belt, it’s almost impossible to tell.
