Thrifty Thursday

More treats from my thrifting escapade over Christmas...

The second I saw this Zara diamante embellished skirt, I already knew exactly how I wanted to style it: cozy sweater, sequin skirt, opaque tights. The best winter look. I love the added detailing of the mint jewels; they make this different from any other sequin skirt! That's definitely something you could do yourself with a skirt you already own, too.

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Zara
Section: Skirts
What I Paid: $9.99
What it's Worth: $79.90 (now on sale for $39.99 on Zara's website)

After being to Vancouver Fashion Week in the fall, I noticed that a good dose of fur (or in this case, faux fur) takes an outfit to new heights. Keep the rest of the outfit simple, and you'll have a high fashion look that's runway-ready!

Store: Value Village
Brand: Bebe
Section: Vests
What I Paid: $19.99
What it's Worth: $189

I found this bag at the same time I found the Burberry-esque backpack in last week's Thrifty Thursday. I was so torn between the two I had to buy both! I'm glad I did, since this one is the perfect bag for all my stuff- even my Crumpler Camera pouch!

I was pleasantly surprised to come across a picture of Leona Lewis toting the same Aldo bag while looking for the value of the bag on Google. The classic hues goes great with her colourful trench!

Store: Value Village
Brand: Aldo
Section: Purses & Bags
What I Paid: $12.99
What it's Worth: $50

Happy Styling! xo



  1. If and when I'm back in Vancouver, I seriously need to know what thrift stores you go to, lady! You always find the most amazing things - I can't believe people are donating them so quickly after buying them, but someone deserves to benefit from that! I especially love the embellished skirt. Hope 2013 is treating you well so far :)

  2. your thrift finds indeed are spectacular, Britta. I always love those posts.
    that skirt looks beyond fancy, I love the faux fur vest (looks so cozy!) and the bag is great too! it has to be a fine bag when even Leona loves it ;)
