Thrift Haul

Hello everyone! I'm back to share a thrift haul. I love thrifting because it gives me an opportunity to try different styles without paying retail price. I can take something that would normally be considered "ugly" or oversized and make it my own. I purchased all of these pieces from local thrift stores. Hopefully this gives you a look into my style, which I'm not sure is really defined LOL! This specific day I didn't go with any items in mind other than getting some fall/winter clothes, but if you've been thrifting, you know that you will find more than what you're looking for. When I shop I tend to look at what ever catches my eye.

 I love finding cardigans at the thrift store. Ones that actually fit me. This is a tan and black Forever 21 cardigan for only $1.98 This is great for transitioning from summer to fall and also for a mild winter (which we sometimes have in Virginia).

 This is a simple black 3/4 sleeve shirt. Sequins done right! A shirt like this is perfect for Christmas and the holidays

 Black and white A line blazer. A fun part of this blazer is that it will unzip from the bottom or top.

 Ok ok...i know this isn't winter material but remember what I said about thrifting. Hahaha. The ruffles is what caught my eye.

 Not sure if this shirt is for a man or woman but it's pretty cool. It's reversible!! I plan on wearing this as a tunic/dress with leggings. I probably won't have to do any alterations. (may take off the pocket) Just add a belt and go!

 Now....I'm little petite thing but this actually fits pretty nice on me. My rule...when it's too wide try it with a belt. This was marked down to $2.50

 Another perfect holiday fit. Look at the shimmery threading. My sister hated this one because of the spheres but I think it adds character :) For $3 I couldn't pass it up!

 At first I thought this was a bit above my age bracket hehe but then I thought about pairing it with some boots for the winter with a fitted top tucked in....yehhhh. This was supposed to be $6 but I was able to get it for $3

 Nope...it's not summer but I still bought it. This will be nice and airy for the hot days. I was able to get a discount $3 since the waist was coming apart in some areas. That will be an easy repair.

I bought these as a group all for $6. That may seem like a lot, but the necklace was priced at $6 alone. The scissors is a brooch that i plan on using in my hair and/or as a necklace

The ring really caught my eye. It's a nail encrusted with gems!

 

Well everyone, that's it for today. I hope to be back to show you how I style some of the clothes.
