I set out on a mission: to dress up for Thrift Shop Day at work. I mean, how could a thriftaholic like me turn down a challenge like that?
So, I made my way to a local thrift shop that has a dedicated dollar section where they hold all of their…um…real gems. I was easily able to pull together an outfit for $5 and cracked up doing so.
I found some awesome stretchy electric blue leggings, a polyester house shirt with pockets, a gaudy orange knit shawl and a fabulous retro flower purse. Accessories were a $1 pair of shoes, orange and blue beaded necklaces, and a vintage head scarf. It’s difficult to distinguish all the patterns and everything that’s going on in this picture, but you get the point.
I guess it wasn’t quite as “out there” as I thought. Several people just thought that was what I was wearing that day, forgetting it was thrift shop day. Haha! I’ll let you know though, the purse, the shoes and the scarf will definitely be going into my regular rotation. I totally dig the retro purse.
On the same trip though, I was able to pick up some amazing “normal” items as well. I got Peanut some more button-down plaid shirts (his go-to look) and Hubster some brand new-looking jeans.
For myself, I snagged the following:
The cutest purple tank top. Upon examination, it even appears to be homemade. I love handmade any day of the week. I’m so glad I get to give this hand-crafted shirt a good home.
