Thrifty Thursday

I'm officially going crazy for mint! I honestly doubted at the beginning of the season that I would actually end up owning a piece of mint clothing, but to my surprise, I've managed to get my thrifty hands on 4 separate items! You've already seen my mint Zara jeans and dip-dyed maxi skirt here and now I've found 2 more: a Zara dress and a cardigan from H&M.

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Zara
Section: Featured items (front of the store)
What I paid: $8.99 + $15 for a new zipper
What it's worth: $89

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: H&M
Section: Sweaters
What I paid: $6.99
What it's worth: $24.95

I've had this dress for a year now but just got around to getting the zipper replaced recently. I found this scarlet dream at The Bay downtown and it was heavily reduced because of a broken zipper. I bought it anyway and I'm so glad I did: yes, it has a heart cutout on the back!!!

Store: The Bay
Brand: Material Girl
Section: Women's Clothing, Material Girl, Reduced Rack
What I paid: $15.25 + $15 for a new zipper
What it's worth: $45

I spotted this tough-looking baby and knew it had to be mine! Studs and spikes are a great way to spice up an otherwise plain piece. Where I found this item brings up a valuable lesson for would-be thrifters: always go through the discards from the change room! Think about it: these are the pieces other people thought were attractive enough to try on, but just didn't work out size-wise. Think of this rack as the cherry-picked items, ripe for your discovery!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Yalosangeles
Section: Changing room discards rack
What I paid: $6.99
What it's worth: ?
