Thirty days has September… and yet September seems like a LONG month, a long busy month with hardly any time to thrift, yet I managed to spend my budget with enough time to spare that I already dipped into my October budget for some irresistible suede Marsala booties! But we’re not here to talk about October! We’re here to find out just what I got for $50.90 – that’s my $50 monthly thrifting budget plus 90 cents carry over and YES I’m carrying over every last penny. In chronological order, here’s what I thrifted in September:
I LOVE these boots! They had a small mark on the toe that I easily removed with a Norwex cloth and otherwise they were hardly worn! They are my comfort colour, they ARE comfortable and they look kick-ass stylin! My guess is that they would retail for around $100 or more.
Next up, my only September accessory! Though I kept most my belts after Konmari-ing my closet, I was still lacking a yellow belt, till now!
Next up, the pants I can’t stop wearing, which is saying something.
Next up, I’ve been hunting for hot pink flats since my other ones kicked the bucket. These aren’t leather (and are from Winner’s) but they are cute and comfy. They’ll be perfect indoor shoes for the long winter months ahead!
I didn’t thrift the next couple pieces myself. I am lucky enough to have a thrifting mentor and big sis who looks out for my thrifting needs.
This suit makes my heart sing! It’s so special, I’ve kinda been saving it even though I’m against saving special things for special days. I think we should wear our special clothes to make ordinary days special!
This suit is a true treasure. It fits great and is handmade – the opposite of fast fashion. To whoever made this suit then donated it, thank you from the bottom of my heart because I love it! The month could have ended here and I would have been content. But it didn’t and my sister Shannon found me a hall-of-fame find that I ADORE.
This dress would retail for more than $1000. That right there should be enough to make every person reading stop, drop whatever you’re doing and go thrifting!!!
To recap my September thrifting…
September budget with carry over $50.90
- London Rebel boots – $11.90
- Yellow belt – $3.50
- Navy joggers – $4.20
- Fuchsia flats – $4.90
- Skirt suit – $10
- Lida Baday dress – $17.00
- TOTAL: $51.50
That puts me just slightly over budget which means I will start October at $49.40. I think I can live with that considering my thrifted purchases were worth hundreds and hundreds more than what I spent and are now irreplaceable pieces of my wardrobe that definitely spark joy! Stay tuned to see how I style up these pieces and don’t miss out on first peeks into my October thrift finds on Instagram!
