Thrifty Thursday

The thrift store was kind to me this time around, even more so than it usually is! As you'll see below, I don't ever search for anything remotely plain: they must have patterns, textures, and unique designs.

This is one of my most prized thrift store finds to date! I've been pretty obsessed with plaid lately (in case you didn't already notice the insane amount of plaid I've been wearing lately), so while I was in the thrift store, I was picking out pretty much every piece of plaid out of the racks. Lo and behold, I came across this gem, looked at the tags, and my eyes bugged out! How did no one find it before me? And the price!! 

Store: Value Village
Brand: Vivienne Westwood (Red Label)
Store Section: Blazers
What I Paid: $2.99 (was 50% off $5.99)
What it Costs New: $875

When you're feeling like wearing an extra girly dress, a Betsey Johnson dress fits the bill just right! I love the volume the skirts have, and at this could I pass it up?? There were actually a few of these dresses in the thrift store; it was a tough choice, but the flower overlays on this once were especially pretty!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Betsey Johnson
Store Section: Dresses
What I Paid: $19.99
What it Costs New: ~ $200

You may have already seen this skirt on my Christmas Eve post here. This is one of those thrift store finds that I considered to be a 'fashion risk'; I felt it had a lot of potential, but wasn't really sure if my vision would translate properly...I ended up loving it after all! Moral of the story: when in doubt, buy!

Store: Salvation Army
Brand: Studio J (A division of Jax)
Store Section: Skirts
What I Paid: $7.99
What it Costs New: ?

Happy Styling! xo
