I am not sad to see April go. It was a long, dreary month full of SNOW and stress! You guys, I was so stressed I missed a monthly “visitor” and then I went into FULL ON PANIC – but thank the Good Lord above, that issue has been “resolved” and we can all
have a glass of wine breathe a sigh of relief. Between that and everything else, life is (temporarily) out of balance. As an Occupational Therapist, I definitely believe in BALANCE and without my self-care activities (thrifting, blogging), I’m out of whack and it shows. Luckily, I did manage a bit of thrifting in April which is probably why I didn’t go completely bonkers. Here’s what I got:
That brings my April total to…
- Fidelity denim $7 (~$200)
- BR shorts $7 (~$70)
- Wildred Free grey tank $3 (~$40)
- Old Navy charcoal tee $4 (~$4)
- Anthro-brand cardi $0 (~$40)
- Rockport leather sandals $11.90 (~$100)
- Tory Burch wedge flip-flops $14 (~$90)
- TOTAL: $46.90
But all that was worth $544, which means I spent an average of 8.5% of the regular retail cost. Not too shabby for a stressed girl! Look for these pieces and more coming soon to an Instagram feed near you! Hang in there with me till all this transition is done!! xoxoxo
I recently bought a Vera Bradley crossbody bag for $2.00, a Coach makeup bag for 50 cents, and Sam Edelman Circus slip-ons for 7.99.
And that is exactly why thrifting is AWESOME!! Thanks for sharing!
Love the flip flops! What a great find!
Thanks! I can’t wait to wear them pool side!!
You got some good deals this month. I love that cardigan, it is absolutely beautiful. The jean carpis are also great, I am always on the lookout for designer denim at thrift stores (usually find it too) and now have another brand to try out.
Thanks Emmy! Yes, I made out well despite not having much time to thrift! Can’t wait till this transition is done and I get to explore thrifting in TX!
I’m excited for you to move to the States just for shopping! As an ex-pat myself who visits home often, the price differences can be incredible. Of course I tell my family that they shouldn’t complain too much b/c at least they have healthcare!
Thanks for the perspective!! I haven’t shopped much there except on the CDN dollar and that never works out in my favour! I’m a little nervous about the whole healthcare thing but we have a plan through my husband’s company so it should all be fine. I hope. :D!!! Can’t wait to thrift there!!!
Wow awesome finds, enjoy.
Hi! Where did you find the wilfred tank for $3?? Thanks! 🙂
It was at the Salvation Army Thrift Store!!
