Thrifty Thursday

You'll notice a couple of pieces here that I wore during Vancouver Fashion Week! I'm proud to say I thrifted almost every thing that I wore to the week of fashion shows.

Far more often, I'm finding myself saying: "Ha! This is my most proud find to date!" It's a great feeling, and it's the biggest rush when you first find it. This blazer is my newest proud find. It fits perfectly and is just a touch fancier than your average blazer.





Store: Salvation Army
Brand: BCBGMaxAzria
Section: Blazers
What I Paid: $9.99
What it's Worth: $250


I wore this dress to Day 3 of VFW.  I've been buying embellished clothing like crazy this season; the studs, the beads, the spikes...they give a plain outfit that extra boost that sends you to glamazon status.





Store: Value Village
Brand: Silence+Noise
Section: Dresses
What I Paid: $14.99
What it's Worth: $68

You've already seen me wear this dress to the Opening Gala of Vancouver Fashion Week. I loved the black and gold pattern, which reminded me of the Baroque trend which has been a hot topic this season. I couldn't get the back to zip up completely, and I HAD to have this dress, so I did a DIY similar to this one and use some black elastic to bridge the gap.



Store: Value Village
Brand: H&M
Section: Rack of new items to be put out (snagged it before it even hit the shelves!)
What I Paid: $14.99
What its Worth: $29.95

Happy Styling! xo

  2. Britta, you are an awesome thrifter! ;) I love all your finds but first two are extra my cup of tea. yesterday I saw a similar blazer (it had (faux) leather details in front) at my favourite thrift store but didn't buy it since it looked too big for me. such a shame actually because I loved it.
