What I thrifted this month…

Guess what? It’s a new blog series; In What I Thrifted This Month I will be showing you… drum roll, please… What I thrifted this month! Or, in this case last month, since today is May 1st. First post for a new series and I have already failed. Bear wtih me, though.

Thrifting is not only necessary for me, I cannot begin to estimate how much money I have saved over the years by buying discounted clothing, it has now become a bit of a game. It is my form of hunting. Can I find the latest trend? Can I find those perfect pair of boots I have been lusting over, but cannot currently afford? Can I even make a little extra cash selling my own clothes? The answer is yes. I can and you can too. There is no reason why you shouldn’t try thrifting at least once. If you’re not into the idea of wearing someone else’s clothing, you can also score all types of goodies for your home at stores like Goodwill and the Salvation Army, or even your local flea market. Don’t even get me started on flea markets. My gushing over flea markets requires a whole other post.

Why would you let the perfect dress, or shoes that were made for you, but just had to go through another person first to get to you, sit in such close (and by God, affordable) proximately and be stolen by someone else? Remember my New Year’s Eve dress? Thrifted. My favorite boots? Thrifted. The blouse from Monday’s post? Thrifted. I could go on and on, but I will let the photos, and my future outfit posts, since it is a rarity when I am not wearing a thrifted piece, speak for themselves.

April brought me scores from Goodwill, Thrift Town, The Salvation Army, Freestyle Clothing Exchange, Buffalo Exchange, and, of course, Crossroads. I found so many brightly colored and patterned pieces for Spring.

*When I “thrift”, it includes consignment stores like Crossroads, Freestyle Clothing Exchange, and Buffalo Exchange, as well as what people consider the “real” thrift stores, like Goodwill and Thrift Town*

I was extremely lucky with shoes this month. I am always looking for shoes, especially boots, when thrifting. I love that they come worn in and scuffed up.

April Thrift Finds

Writing it out makes it seem like I have a problem. Actually, I fully admit that I do have a thrifting problem. A shopping problem in general, actually. Thank God for thrifting, or else I would also have a debt problem.

    I LOVE buying consigned stuff. I’ve found some really amazing things including a vintage Chanel wallet, Gucci purse, and Dior and Escada jackets. A St. John suit too! You can find really fantastic stuff if you search.

  2. i’m going to love this series. i love thrifting….the ‘thrill’ of the hunt…..finding a total gem. and the challenge in hong kong is actually finding these experiences. the chinese are very superstitious when it comes to wearing second hand items (or buying them for their homes) because of the idea of the spirit that inhabits the clothing. but, they’re coming around. there are some good things to find here. at my local salvo (now shut) i found prada and miu miu heels and a cool zara blazer.

    What great finds all around! I’m drooling over all the shoes you got. I used to thrift a lot when I was in university…must find the time to do it again especially nowadays when everything is just so expensive.

  16. Sharon said:

    I am so impressed by your thrifting! I’ve gone to my GW a bunch a times and sometimes I can score something good and other times I leave empty handed. I really wish there was a Buffalo Exchange close by….I’ve seen a lot of bloggers get wonderful finds there.
