Giving Thanks for Thrifty Finds!

Hello my lovely thrifters! I hope you’ve been well and are soaking in all the Autumn joys. Thanksgiving is drawing near and I wanted to share another Goodwill outfit with you.

I know with all the calamities of 2020, there will be different arrangements for our Thanksgiving gatherings. For some it’ll be an intimate gathering with a few family members, and for others it may be a virtual dinner party.

Whether you’ll be having dinner virtually or in person, to a degree I think it still matters to show up looking dazzling!

So here’s a simple yet a bit sophisticated orange dress I found on the racks at Goodwill for $12.98.

When I first saw this dress, I immediately fell in love with the shoulder tie and the lace design that runs on the thigh. The material is really stretchy and hugging at the same time. And with a happy quarantined weight gain I initially thought it wouldn’t fit but it does!

So who said dresses need to be paired with heels all the time? Guess what? I found white Tory Burch trainers at Goodwill for just $8.96!! If you’re familiar with the brand, they usually retail for around $200!

I couldn’t believe my eyes! They are unimaginably comfortable to walk in, and I love the blue sequin that runs on both sides of the shoes. I think it adds character to the shoe and adds an uplifting personality to the wearer!

In all, my total outfit from Goodwil was just $21.94!

You really can’t beat that price!

I hope you have a lovely and memorable time with your loved ones. Continue to stay safe.

Survey Says…Best Accidental Halloween Costume Ever!

Happy Happy Fall, lovely thrift hunters! I’ve been away for a while, taking a much needed social media break, but I’m back! I can’t wait to show you my last minute, accidental Halloween outfit!

I wanted to dress up as Woody from Toy Story, although I’ve never paid much attention to the movie. I’ve reluctantly watched it because I sometimes babysit and thought it’d be fun to dress up as that character. But, finding a last-minute Woody costume wasn’t in my thrifting future!

I somehow stumbled on a suit set at the men’s section of Goodwill, and it dawned on me I could pull it off by dressing as Steve Harvey. Lol!

The striped suit set I found was a total of $40.00.

Next I found a large men’s vest for $4.18 (I adjusted the back with a safety pin so I could fit in into it), and a tie for $3.98.

Next I grabbed a new handkerchief for just $1.29.

This photo was my inspiration, and I think I pretty much nailed it!

I couldn’t find any black shoes that would fit from the men’s section, so I improvised and paired the suit with my platforms.

I think the only missing element here is my unshaven head, but I’m only willing to go so far for this look! 🙂

I don’t think the look is too bad for a last minute Halloween outfit! What do you think?

Happy Halloween, enjoy your candies!

FALL-ing for Sustainable Fashion!

Hello lovey my lovely thrifters! Have you been finding some great Goodwill finds? I have!

Today is the official first day of fall, my favorite season of the year. If you’ve read some of my blogs, you’ll find that I wear long sleeve shirts a lot, so now I can finally (well, eventually) have a good reason to rock my long sleeves!

Here’s a look at my latest fall outfit, thrifted from Goodwill. First, I found this extremely comfy fleece sweater for just $3.98. This brand can be usually found at Target and sells between $30-$40; finding this was a great bargain!

Lately I’ve not been in to carrying purses, I prefer carrying a  wristlet. But this beautiful burgundy crossbody bag grabbed my attention and I figured it would match well with the sweater. And, it was brand new and just $4.97 at Goodwill!

To top of this great Goodwill shopping trip, I found a pair of  BOOTIful ( Lol, get it?)  boots for $8.96. They’re barely worn and really comfortable, and there’s even room for toe space even when worn with socks. I think the boots matched well the purse and sweater.

A good match, right?

Here’s the sweater, purse and boots paired with jeans I already owned. I love this fall outfit, and I only spent about $18 to put it all together!

Drop comment and let me know what you think!

Until then, see you next time thrifters!

Summertime & the Thriftin’ is Easy

Hello my lovely thrifters! Have you been finding some cool summer finds at Goodwill? I have! I know we have until next month for summer to officially end, and that can’t come soon enough for me!

I had a lot of luck on a recent trip to Goodwill. Yay! First, I found this beautiful multicolored dress for just $5.98. This dress is definitely an attention grabber and a spotlight stealer!

The material is really easy to iron, and it has a white lining on the inside which is very soft. I love this dress — even though it doesn’t have pockets 🙁 I also love the cut out style on the bottom. I think it adds a little attitude to the dress.

This dress is a great  summer find, especially at the Goodwill price of less than six dollars! I can totally see myself wearing this for an evening stroll along Clearwater Beach.

Stay tuned for my next outfit for Fall – I think you’ll love it as much as I do!

Edgy & Economical!

Hello lovely thrifters!

I’m back with another thrift hunt. It feels like it’s been raining a lot lately, but hey, anything to help cool down the summer heat. On this week’s find, I went to Goodwill (where else?) and I found a super cute pair of distressed jeans and a simple white cropped top.

The cropped top was just $4.48! It doesn’t have a brand name, but it’s great quality and it feels really comfy. I’m not sure how to describe the material but it feels super soft on the inside and a bit stiff on the outside. I also really love the “blunt” cut style of how it was cropped. To me, the shirt seems pretty versatile, as it could be paired with leggings, jogging shorts, bike shorts, etc.

Next up, as I wandered around Goodwill, I came upon these distessed jeans, from a brand called Soho. I snatched them up for just $6.98!

I love a good distressed jean, but this style almost seemed a bit too much for me. But I compromised on this and I don’t regret it at all! The jeans fit great and I even decided to accessorize them with a bag chain to add more style and edginess!

Here are pictures of me rocking this super cute casual style in front of one of my favorite murals!  

All for a total of just $11.46!  You can’t beat that!

Keep dreaming big, thrifters, and I’ll see you again soon with some more stylish outfits and amazing Goodwill prices!

An Open Mind = Great Find!

Hello Thrift Hunters,

I hope you’ve been well. It’s been a little while since my last blog. I was consumed by work and will finally get a break from it sometime soon and I can’t wait!

In this week’s blog, I want to show you a simple “dress” I found at Goodwill. At just $4.48, I couldn’t afford to leave it on the rack.

Here’s the funny part, and a good reason to always shop with an open mind: My “dress” is actually a shirt with a pleated bottom and I found it in the extra large section!

I felt a bit guilty because there were so many options for smaller size clothes, but I still picked this. Or maybe did it pick me? Ha!

I would do anything for a dress with pockets, but I still couldn’t love this any less. I love the flower patterns and I love how free it makes me feel.

I decided to take a little walk in nature with my cute dress. I love how it makes me standout in all the greens of nature! Get out and shop at Goodwill with an open mind, and I’ll see you next time!
