Adventures in Thrifting

Hello Beauties!

It has been awhile since I have been thrifting, but on Friday, I had the opportunity to get out there and scour the racks.  I definitely experienced the good, bad and the ugly (not really ugly) portion of thrifting.  The great part is that I equipped with the best tool (patience) and a great thrifting partner.

My first and only stop was to the Goodwill Community Foundation in Goldsboro.  I spent about an hour in this store and found three items I loved.  When I go into thrift stores, I always tend to check accessories first and then head straight to suits and blazers.  This floral jacket/blazer immediately caught my eye.


It may look old and frumpy to some, but the floral print and big, pearl-like buttons drew me in.  Unfortunately, it was too small and even though I shimmied at various angles in the mirror to make it work, alas, it just wouldn't.  However, as I walked away, this striped blouse stood out to me.  I picked it up, glanced at the size and squealed!


Then as I walked further, I found that the store associates had put out more purses.  I found an awesome, neutral colored clutch in great condition.  Plus, it had removable straps!  Yay!  So, I walked away with a blouse and clutch for under $6!


As I left, I decided to head to Target.

Quick Picture Taking...

I hadn't planned to look at much, but two pairs of shoes caught my eye!



I literally adore both pairs!  I was so happy to see a great pair of bright, cap toe heels, but I didn't want to pay full price.  Cheap, I know.  The snakeskin boots were marked down to $10 and clearly I already have an affinity for snakeskin so...  They came home with me!

Have you been thrifting lately?

God bless & stay fabellis!

  7. The black/white striped blouse is definitely a winner. Too bad about the floral blazer because it's mad cute.
