When you’re a thrift addict enthusiast, you don’t necessarily thrift less often just because you had a thriftapalooza. Right, thrifters??!! So yes, I did some thrifting in February and here’s what I got:
Rejoice even if you spent…
Atmosphere heart-print blouse $10
Long cream cardi NWT $6
Scripture tee $3.93
Olive tank $4.94
Saturday Sunday blazer $9.59
Long green cardi NWT $8
White cotton top $6
Polka dot top $5
Free People jean leggings NWT $25
Pilcro denim skirt $20
Old navy denim print shorts NWT $6
Green shorts $3.50
Green floral dress $4
Printed mules $5.45
At an average cost per piece of $7.83, including 4 new-with-tags and most in new condition, I’d say that’s a decent month. AND, even though it’s only March 3rd, I’m already wearing most of these pieces. This ain’t Kansas Canada anymore! What did YOU thrift in February? Who’s ready to thrift in March?!!
And more importantly, who’s ready to head over to Instagram or Facebook to follow along with the 5th year of Pinspired March!! In case you’re wondering, that means I’ve been at this longer than Celeste Barber and the many other people who enjoy copying posts and outfits! I love them all and find them soooo entertaining, but I just want y’all to know, I’m an original. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!! I have so much fun with #veryseriousposing and hope you can follow along to brighten up a long month! AND, just for funsies, if YOU have a pin that you’d like me to attempt to copy, send it my way either here in the comments, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest. If I get a decent selection, I’ll select one and award the winner a prize! Let the games begin!! (who needs the Olympics when we’ve got Pinspired March! Here’s the kick-off post of 2018 in case you missed it…)
I’ve always loved that you do this! You’re so creative (and motivated!). And I’m excited you’re letting us submit ideas. I have some things on my Outfit Inspiration Pinterest board that I’d love to see you recreate. Such as this dress and vest outfit or this Taylor Swift dress and cardigan look. I hope you get some good submissions!
I saw this when you first commented and have since been looking at the Goodwill racks for a vest! I used to have one long vest but never wore it so I donated it! But it would be a nice layering piece and good to add some outfit interest in the Texas heat! Thanks for your kind words!! Stay tuned!!
I need to say thank you. I had never heard of Aquatalia boots before reading your posts. Last month I was at a local Goodwill and found a pair of Aquatalia boots. I grabbed them and tried them on. Happy to report they were my size. I paid $3.29 for them. Slightly used but look like new after I brushed them with a suede kit. I have worn them 4-5 times already and always get several compliments on them, they are so comfortable. Thank you for blogging about Aquatalia, otherwise I wouldn’t have known how great they are.
That is a MAJOR THRIFTING SCORE!!! Congrats! I feel like I just got the assist to the winning goal in the Stanley Cup Final! Woot woot! (#Canadian) I’m so happy that I could be of service and that you found such a great piece. The thing about some expensive brands is that they really are superb quality that, with a little TLC, lasts and lasts. Congrats on your great find and thank you for letting me know! Makes my day!
Great finds! That sweater jacket is going to go with so much! https://www.eventbrite.com/d/tx–houston/food-and-wine-festival/– and just *look* at all the Houston-area wine festivals you can wear the other sweater to! ;0)
YESSSSSSS!!!! Thanks for having my back and why didn’t I think to search Eventbrite! The sweater jacket might be a bit small – especially if I go to a bunch of food and wine festivals!! hahah
