Thrifty Thursday

This week's Thrifty Thursday will not disappoint! You really don't know what's out there until you starting searching...

I have no clue if this bag is real or not, and I tend to think it may not be, but I really don't know how to tell! It definitely has some wear and tear, but it's the closest I'll get to one of these LVs for a very long time. I do like the classic colour scheme; you'll see how I style it in next week's Look of the Week!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Louis Vuitton
Section: Bags & Purses
What I Paid: $7.99
What its Worth: (if it's the real deal) ~ $450

Now here is a perfect example of why you should ALWAYS try it on...even if you're not 100% sure of it. I feel like a bond girl in this dress. No need for any extra bling here; it's all right there! I love how back is open to make up for the conservative front and a long slit up the back will let me show off my heels-of-choice. I did a little research on the brand, and ALGO is a Swiss high fashion brand that has been around since 1917!

Now, if only I had an event to where this to...

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: ALGO
Section: Dresses
What I Paid: $8.99
What it's Worth: ~ $80

I immediately knew how I was going to style this skirt when I saw it on the rack: Big cozy sweater and opaque tights with my new Aldo suede wedge ankle boots! I love the edginess of the contrasting gold zipper with the femininity of the ruffles.

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: French Atmosphere
Section: Skirts
What I Paid: $5.99
What it's Worth: ?

Happy Styling! xo



  1. For the bag, check to see if there's a tag with a serial number on it. Then Google the number. I see a lot of fake designer bags in thrift stores in the US and that's the trick I use to check! :)
