Thrift Scores

In a previous post, I showed you some of my recent thrifting
finds. I had some requests to do another post like it.
Damn...go thrifting again?
OK. If you insist!
The booties that you see above are by Traffic and have never been worn. $5.95
American Living sweater $4.94
This is the line that Ralph Lauren designed for J.C. Penney
for 5 years. However, this collaboration ended last summer.
Alya sweater $4.94
Blue webbing belt $2.92
This sweater is incredibly light, making it a great weight
to wear into early spring. I was fortunate enough to find a
belt at the same Goodwill that is the perfect shade of blue
to give it an additional punch of color.
An Elizabeth and James dress for $5.95? Yes, please!
They retail for $350-$500!
Jones New York wool embroidered wool vest $2.92
I mentioned recently that I am a vest fanatic.
Here I am, feeding my addiction!
A.J. vest $2.92
This vintage gem is made from woven strips of suede. I might
 just have to pair this with my vintage suede skirt!
And these are the boots I'll wear with them!
Tony Lama cowboy boots $6.96
These boots are still available online for more than $200!!
Being from Texas, I love me some cowboy boots so I was
jumping up and down when I found these!
3 J Workshop embroidered shirt $4.94
This label is a division of the label Johnny Was.
These blouses retail for $200 and up!
Apt. 7 leather skirt $4.94
Ann Taylor Loft black/white houndstooth skirt $4.94
(No label) Velvet dress $5.95
I rarely wear dresses but I saw a glimpse of this burnout velvet sticking
out of a very crowded rack. When I saw the style, I knew
I had to try it on. It fit like it was made for me.
How could I say no?
Here is a closeup of the fabric and detailing.
I will have to wear something under it!
I found this gorgeous reversible velvet/satin wrap on the same visit.
Trina Turk top $4.94
Trina Turk tops generally sell between $200-$300!
Love the sleeve treatment!
Lux embroidered top $4.94
This top has just the boho vibe that I love for warmer weather.
My favorite part?
The oversized embroidered hood!
I can't wait to wear this.
Happy thrifting, ladies!


  1. This is too good to be true - how do you find these things? You have got some amazing finds there. Too many to single out (except maybe the Tony Lama boots).

  2. My God what a haul! So much great stuff and so cheap! I love the burgundy top with that beautiful embroidiered hood! And that lacey/velvet cutout black dress is amazing!

  3. Beautiful finds!! Trina Turk!! Tony Lama!!!
    I am a Texas girl born and raised too and have been looking for boots. What is the trick to buying used, broken in boots?

    Way to go...inspiring!

  4. Amazing finds! The booties, boots and the embroidered tunic with a hood are my faves!

  5. OMG!! How do you do this?? I love it ALL. Look at those fantastic boots, and a great buddy with that gorgeous embroidered shirt. I want it I want it!!! You have great taste seriously AND good luck. You have the best thrift stores around you. I've been discouraged lately because I'm only finding junk on the racks.
    Can't wait to see you in that embroidered shirt! Well, all of it really ;)

  6. Ok, I must live in the wrong place. I would NEVER be able to find these incredible items. What a fun, fun shopping spree you had. Looking forward to seeing you in these.

  7. Yup Im with Trina, I'm living in the wrong place. People would charge 3X's as much for those designer items.

    My fave is that Trina Turk top!

  8. Stunning finds, I appreciate the fact that others do some "thrifting". I support your idea, and love the way you styled the satin wrap around the beautiful jacket!

  9. What incredible thrifting finds... take me with you! OK, that might not be practical. At least come back to the blogosphere....
