Well I can’t promise timeliness, but I did aim to share my monthly thrift hauls in 2018 so here comes my January report… with a qualifier. If you follow along on Instagram, you know that my sister just visited and we engaged in a 10-day Houston thrifting spree. I plan to share all the shenanigans (which include her buying a Texas house) over the next few posts since it’s just so epic it will take more than one. SO my January thrift haul is what I thrifted before she arrived. It is what it is, no judgment please!
So the grand monthly summary is…
Black Eddie Bauer tee $4.19
Bobeau cardi $4.19
Icebreaker tee $20
Mustard striped tee $3
Black boyfriend cardi nwt $10
Aqua cardi $10
Red cardi $7.80
Striped top $12
Babaton joggers $16.15
Pilcro denim joggers $21.25
Pilcro mustard skirt nwt $35
Pilcro red skirt $10
Corey Lynn Calter dress $20
We love Vera silk dress $7
TOTAL: (I’m only tallying this because I love y’all) $186.58
I always like to calculate the average cost per piece which at $12.44 is quite a bit higher than my usual but so worth it when you consider that the retail value would be close to $1000. I edited quite a few pieces from my closet this month too – just things that I’m ready to let go of now that I have some updated options in my wardrobe, pieces that I liked but didn’t LOVE. Of everything I got, I really only have one regret (so far) and even that is mitigated by the fact that swap.com offered me a $30 credit to shop and post an outfit which will be coming soon on Insta! Thanks swap.com!!
How about YOU – what did you thrift in January? What were your hits and misses? The victory is all the more sweet once shared!
Great finds! You look great in both pairs of joggers!! I’m thrifting along with you; today I went to the Salvation Army in my town, where I got a pair of Guess jeans (should’ve tried ’em on) and a pair of Kensie ankle jeans that fit so well, I don’t even mind the weird fit of the Guess pair. Feeling good!
AWESOME! I love hearing about other people’s finds! And that I’m not the only one having a case of the “shoulda tried on”! haha Thanks for the comment!
I needed boots for the Ohio snow. I thrifted Clarks brown leather ankle boots for $15 and Clarks red ankle boots for $18. Both pairs were new with tags. The price is higher than I usually like to pay at thrift stores but they’re Clarks, what can I say. I have worn both pairs, since winter is still going on here, and they are super comfy. I’m pleased with my thrifty purchases.
Well done!! I have done the same thing – paid “high” prices (for the thrift store) for pieces that I know I will wear frequently, like boots, coats, bags and jeans. When you consider the cost per wear, it’s definitely worth it. Plus, RED BOOTS!!! xoxoxo And Clarks is a brand that will last. Excellent thrifting! Thanks for sharing!
