For a trophy wife, I have been awfully busy these days so this month’s recap is coming “better late than never” (and I’ve already got a jump start on thrifting for April #freshout). Here’s what I managed to thrift this month, besides what I scored at
St. Vincent de Paul and March’s thrift store of the month…
I admit I thrifted this green polka dot top specifically so that I could copy this outfit after I thrifted the J. Crew seersucker skirt for $6, but the top was only $1.25 so totally worth it.
I got this J. Crew kelly green midi skirt WITH POCKETS for $6 at the same time as the seersucker. Don’t worry, I won’t wear the green polka dot top with it. #toomuchevenforme
Got a red tee for $1.25 but I’m not so sure of the fit. I think it doesn’t do me any favours so I might put it my clothing swap pile and continue my search.
I did a cute little Instagram Story to share the price of our 100% thrifted outfits (i.e., for a good time, follow my IG stories!). My striped maxi skirt was $1.50 and my tee was $1; her skirt was $3 and her top was 25 cents.
How could I *not* get this striped tee for $1.25? #freshoutofstripes
I was on a dollar-something top roll…. (this one was also $1.25)
Got a bit spendy on this for $3.50 but I have an Anthro top in this colour with sleeves and was happy to find a Houston-weather-appropriate version. I wore it recently in a Pinspired copycat outfit…
I see she’s also cramming for book club. I may not know which Enneagram type I am but I do know my $8 @agjeans grey cigarette crops would retail for about $225, my $22 @saltwatersandals would retail for $45, my $3.50 @target Knox Rose top would retail for $25 and my $2.80 Pashmina-silk scarf would run at least $35. So there’s that.
I’ve been on the lookout for Lucky Brand pieces like this one. Easy breezy peezy to wear and only $6.56.
I did buy one other top, an Eileen Fisher flowy wool cardi that I fell in love with so fast I didn’t notice it had holes…
I don’t think those are the kind of holes that can be repaired but I’ll beg my sewing friend Lisa to give it a shot and if it doesn’t work, I’ll pass it along to someone crafty with wool…
Got myself another denim midi skirt. $1.41 spent to look vintage-hip (and hopefully not Duggar-dowdy).
And I totally needed a polka dot skirt, Ann Taylor new-with-tags for $6 from KCM Thrift Shop! Believe it or not, I don’t have a polka dot skirt.
On my way out of KCM Thrift Shop, I spotted these Cole Haan slides on 10% off shoe day! They were $3.75!
Striped faux-wrap dress for $7.57.
I got a couple pieces off Poshmark this month…
Pilcro olive jogger-y style jeans for $15
And a Pilcro small leather cross-body bag for $8! It needed a little TLC so I threw it in the washing machine (that’s as TLC as I get) and it came out great!
I mentioned in my Instagram Story once that I always scan the bathing suits, and here’s why:
My pool and hot tub (#donthatemebecauseihaveapool) have a non-slip bottom that is rough on the ol’ suit so I wear them out pretty fast (and no one needs to see the results of that). This Bond-Eye suit was in great condition for $6.56!
Ummmmm, turns out I did a fair bit of thrifting this month!!
To feel better about this, let me state that the
average price per piece was $4.71 which is pretty darn good. But I do need to go through my closet again!!
