6 Month Thrifting Update: Favorites

2 Jan

When it comes to my thrifting fun, I still make mistakes. I get a little price blind… or brand blind… and I figure, it’s SO CHEAP, why NOT get it?! But then when I get it home, it’s not love. It’s not even like. Luckily, at thrift prices it’s not a big deal when I make a mistake. Typically, I will either resell the item or just re-donate it so the next thrifterella can enjoy it.

I did my first 6 month Thrifting Update back in June (you can read it here) and thought it was a good exercise. So, I went through all my thrifting posts from July – December and picked out my 3 favorites:

{Pssst, you can find all my thrifting posts here: Thrifting Fun}

Andrew Marc leather purse, $29.99

Thrifted in August

I ‘paid up’ for this purse at the thrift store back in August, but when I did my research I found that it actually sells for $450 – $650, so that’s quite a deal! (I actually posted all about my stalking research here) This purse is so incredibly soft and buttery that I often find myself stroking it randomly. I’ve been using it daily since October and this is already one of my favorite thrift finds of all time!

Leota sweetheart neckline dress, $4

Thrifted in August

I have two Leota dresses and love them both. Well, maybe I love this one a little more since it was only $4…! The dresses are made in New York with the softest, silkiest jersey that just flows over any lumps and bumps.

It’s so easy to throw this one with a pair of flats and look professional. The best part is that it basically feels like wearing pajamas all day. Thrift Score!

M.M. LaFleur Rachel dress, $7

Thrifted in November

I was flabbergasted to see M. M. LaFleur out on the ‘wild’ when thrifting and even more shocked that their sizing is so weird. This dress is marked as a size 16 but fits the same as a typical size 10/12.

It’s a beautiful color and perfect for a professional work look, so I was so happy to have found it for just $7!

Have you had any super thrifting winners over the past few months?

    I started thrifting pretty seriously about 6 months ago. I try to go once a week (sometimes that happens sometimes not). My favorite thrift hauls over the past few months have been….
    – brand new AGL cap toe ballet flats – retail on Nordstrom for $298 and I got them for $5.
    – Grey J. Crew sweater with stud detail – retail $110 for $4
    – Brand new Vince Camuto leather tote- still on website for $128 and I paid $4
    – Muk Luk Elle Wedge sandal – still on website for $70- I paid $5
    I have lots of other items, some great J. Jill sweaters, Talbots jeans that I love and a great North Face jacket.
    It’s been a really fun adventure and I love that I can get my shopping fix in and not spend a lot of money and so proud when I find treasures!
