I am very excited to share my latest adventures in thrifting- last week, I scored some seriously great furniture for under $20. This week, I seriously must have the power of attraction when it comes to thrifting, since the things I am thinking about find their way into my life after a few stops to the thrift store.
I’ve been working off a list of things that I desperately need/want for the new casa, but I for sure don’t want to pay full price for- everything from furniture, black boots, professional clothes, mason jars & vintage sparkle. I have been harnessing the power of the Secret or some good juju- because I am knockin’ items off my list left and right!
I seriously cannot believe what I scored at Goodwill this week- I got two sexy black shift dresses from Calvin Klein, TAGS STILL ON, for $20 a piece. I also snagged a brand new pair of Aldo boots that were so new they still had the price tags on the bottom. These boots retail for $150 a pop and I got them, brand-spankin’- new for $10. Yep, $10.
Granted, not every thrift trip is a win- you have to invest your time to get the real steals on items you are lusting for. You won’t always find things with tags still on, but you are sure to find what you need if you’re patient. This week, I was just apparently really darn lucky because the things I have been secretly crushing on (like a new pair of black boots and a gorgeous new clutch) found me. So you know, I hit up a vintage flea market, a Goodwill and a Salvation Army to find the right pieces- so it was half luck, half diligence but I hope you get inspired to do some thrifting yourself- of course, with Mackelmore blastin’ in the background!
Did you like what I got? Seriously, I’m giddy that I scored so much for around $114- especially that some items were new with the tags still on and I snagged it at up to 75% off retail. Buying gently used, vintage or thrift will save you some serious cash, you just have to be patient and strategic. If an item doesn’t quite fit, don’t buy it. I had to turn down a few gorgeous skirts due to being ultimately too snug or having a tear or stain that I couldn’t work with.
Be patient, have fun, wear comfortable shoes and clothes and of course, thrift often!
