Thrifting Finds!

Hiyas! Hope everyone is having a lovely Father's Day weekend. Today I wanted to talk about thrifting. I think my new interest in thrifting is mostly due to the fact that thrifting is so affordable and you have the possibility of finding some wonderful items. Only qualm is that you have to search. Here are some of my most recent finds!

Aerosoles Knee High Black Boots (Goodwill - $4.99)
Still need to cleaned them, but they are in really good condition and I have had the most difficult time finding a pair of knee high boots that fit my calves. I'm so glad that I was able to find these without having to break my wallet!

Anne Taylor Loft Black Blazer (Local Thrift Store - $4.49)
My friend and I went to visit a local thrift shop she had found. This was the first item we both saw, but she said she had already bought a similar one recently. For the field I am in, we are required to dress professionally for class. I'm so happy I was able to find this blazer because it fit perfectly!

Yansi Fugel Houndstooth Blazer (Goodwill - $6.99)
 I think this blazer is one of my favorite finds because the not only is the fabric soft, but also lightweight (you know how much I love comfort). I also love the Houndstooth print which sets it apart from other pieces in my wardrobe.

Leslie Fay Red Paisley Jacket (Goodwill - $6.99)
Another unique piece I found that is also lightweight. I think what really drew me to this piece is the pattern of the jacket. Even better, its not dry clean only ^___^

The Limited Red Polka Dot Blouse (Goodwill - $4.99)
Love the polka dot pattern of this blouse. I think it will be great inside one of the above blazers!

Candies Flower Blouse (Goodwill - $2.99)
I've worn this piece already! It was really comfortable and it was only $2.99, which I think is a steal!

Express Rose Gold Clutch (Goodwill - $4.99)
I was initially indecisive about this clutch, but I don't own many clutches and just thought the metallic color would be a cute accessory for some summer weddings that are coming up. I am thinking of possibly adding a brooch to the front to dress it up! Let me know what you all think!

Cream Clutch (Goodwill - $3.99)
Although it may seem plain, I was thinking about making this a DIY project. I have seen a lot of color blocking tutorials and thought this would be a cute clutch to use. Now, I am just considering what color to block it with. Again, I would love any suggestions!

Major things I look out for when thrifting:
Pit stains (washable?)
Regular stains
Holes (is it a hole you can patch up)
Item quality (for me, is it dry clean)
Fit (even though it is cheap, it is not worth it if it doesn't fit well)

Do you like thrifting and if yes, what have been some of your best finds? As always, I appreciate the support and read every comment on my posts <3 Follow if you like!

Note: Products were purchased with my own money and the reviews are 100% my own.

  4. You got some really great stuff! I recently started thrifting and I really enjoy it! My Goodwill doesn't have a great selection of handbags though, I can only get clothes there.
