I have another thrift haul to share with you all! Early in April, my husband decided to take our son on an overnight camping trip and left me ALL ALONE for the weekend. It. Was. Awesome. I’m a natural introvert, so having someone home with me at all times wears me down after a while. To finally have some time to myself was like a gift. And pretty much as soon as they left the driveway, I jumped in my car to go thrifting!
As it turns out, I got super extra lucky because all clothing was 50% off. I was super picky though, so this month’s haul is small yet mighty!
Talbots Black Cotton Eyelet Dress, $9
This dress is the perfect example to just ignore the size tags when you’re thrifting. I typically wear a 10/12 in dresses and this one was marked as a size 16. It was in perfect condition though and I loved both the black eyelet fabric and the cinched in waist and swingy skirt. The fitting rooms were closed, so I crossed my fingers and figured it couldn’t be too hard to throw it on the sewing machine to take it in where it was too big on me.
And that was totally NOT even needed. As you can see from the photo, it fits great! I don’t know if it was undersized (and ended up at the thrift store because someone didn’t bother to return an online order) or if it shrank in someone’s wash. Any which way, it fits me great and it will be adorable with a cardigan for work or for something fun like a baby shower!
Ann Taylor Wrap Dress, $7.50
I love a good wrap dress and this one is such a pretty green! The print kept reminding me of something and I finally figured it out. It looks almost identical to the Orla Kiely Solid Stem Sunflower graphic print! This dress checks all my boxes – comfortable, work appropriate, and knee-length. All that for just $7.50? Yes, thank you!
Books for the Kiddo, $2.50 total
I’ve gotten into the habit of checking the book shelves for both myself and Jack. He recently asked for the Zombie Goldfish book and I hadn’t bought it yet, so this copy worked out perfectly. As for the Minecraft book, he owns the game… so I figured it couldn’t hurt to buy the book for $1.
My whole thrift haul was under $20 and I’m super pleased with both dresses. Jack also loved the books… so score!
