Thrifty Thursday

I've got a wide variety of finds for you this week, folks! My favourites? A vintage, unworn blouse by a local Vancouver company with the original Eaton's tags attached, and a decadently soft cashmere Neiman Marcus sweater in perfect condition. Still not on the thrifting bandwagon yet? I think you might be when you see what that sweater is worth!

I don't have a business career yet, but when I do I am going to strut my stuff in this modern design with a pair of shiny black patent heels!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Unknown
Section: Dresses
What I Paid: $6.99
What it's Worth: ?

This blouse is more than just an item of clothing, it's a history piece! The Museum of Vancouver actually has a similar blouse from Original Blouse Co. in their collection. My lovely neighbour had set it aside for me at her garage sale and I couldn't believe this beauty was mine for such a steal!

Store: Neighbour's garage sale
Brand: Original Blouse Co.
Section: N/A
What I Paid: $2
What it's Worth: $5.95 (circa 1950-1959)

I'm not generally a big fan of starchy white blouses, so when I found this breezy chiffon blouse, I thought it would be a better business-attire option. Keep it classy with a cream tank or vamp it up a bit after work with a splash of colour underneath!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Bandolino
Section: Blouses
What I Paid: $5.99
What it's Worth: ?

I think this sweater is one of my most prized thrifting finds to date! I have been keeping an eye out for a cream cashmere sweater for a year now, and lo and behold, I finally found it. This is going to be great for fall with a pair of casual jeans and maybe some pearls and my black D&G glasses: super cozy and chic.
