Thrifty Finds

Have you ever walked into a store and found the perfect item just waiting for you? Today was my lucky day. Not only did I find my new favorite shirt, but I found it on SALE for $2 at a thrift store. Score! It is just perfect for this weather and I can't wait to wear it!

It was menswear that had been miss shelved, but it fits like the perfect 80s ballet shirt.


My second purchase was athletic wear. I have been wanting a sweatsuit that was not as slouchy as good ol' Hanes, but not velvet or sequined. Surprise - they are hard to find. Today I found one like this by Reebok.

Yes. It is bubblegum pink. Not my usual style, but it fits well, is super comfortable and the pink might be fun for spring. At $6 for the set I couldn't resist.

My third find of the day was an Old Navy V-neck fleece. Those darn things sell out within a couple weeks in my size every year. Well today I got this one for $2. HA!

Anne Taylor would be shocked that her khaki pants went for $3.

I scored a like new black pencil skirt from NY and Co for $1.50. My old one was stretch cotton and had been through 15 years and three pregnancies with me. It was time to upgrade...

And one of these too.

I then I lost my mind and bought some of these...

They look SO cute on (thanks to the Bella Dahl label), but the color kind of scares me. I found four tops that matched in my closet so I think there is a chance I'll really like them. Hey, all the cool people are wearing them right? Right?

The real challenge comes when I get home. My closet is your standard double bi-fold door sized and I do not have a chest of drawers. The room I have with my closet organizer is the room I have. NO MORE. (I do admit to having a Space-bag in the attic with clothes one size smaller/larger as needed.) So when all this came in, I pulled out just as many items to go back out and I'm not sure what to do with them yet. For now I'll just enjoy my honeymoon with my new stuff.

  1. Glad to know there is someone else out there who loves shopping at the "Unique Boutiques" as much as I do! I have a couple of good friends that feel the same way and we sometimes get together to make a whole day of thrifting. I don't think that is really a word, but it ought to be.
