May Thrift Haul

This was an extra lucky thrifting month for me and I’m excited to share it with you guys! I ended up with some fantastic home items, a super sparkly tank top and some adorable kid’s clothes that I chopped apart.

Let’s take a look:

Cactus picture, $14.50

You guys, this cactus picture was love at second sight. Not first sight – I left it behind at the Goodwill the first time I saw it – but second sight, when I realized a week later that it was a missed connection. Luckily, the picture was waiting for me, still with the brand-new box and tags on it! It looks perfect in it’s rightful place by my bed. Now, that is absolutely giving me more than $14.50 worth of happiness.

Sparkly tank top, $2

When I was planning my outfit for the Taylor Swift show, I knew I wanted something to go with my star + moon tulle skirt for my Midnight’s Era look. Obviously, sparkles was what I needed! I picked up three potential sparkly tops, brought them home to try on, and this one was the winner…for just $1.99! The other two tops went back (my new Goodwill takes returns within 7 days) to the store for someone else to love.

Here it is with my fabulous skirt:

Lu-Ray Cups and Saucer set, $12.50

When I saw these, I loved them. But when I did a little research on the brand… I loved them even more. Lu-Ray Pastels was Taylor, Smith & Taylor’s most popular line of dinnerware. They were made in the United States and was first introduced in the summer of 1938 and discontinued in 1961. Each piece is stamped on the bottom with the date it was made, and my pieces are from the 1940’s.

I purchased the whole set of 4 saucers and 4 mugs for $12.50 total and I’m thrilled to add them to my home!

2 Pottery Cups, $2 each

Here are two more items that I fell in love with immediately. I found these little pottery cups tucked in with the glasses section, but I love them as homes for my tiny succulent plants. These are definitely handmade, but there are no markings (other than a “12” written on the bottom in pencil) to tell me where they came from. They look adorable in my bathroom.

Chive Pooley 2 Vase, $4.50

I’ve seen this vase online before, so when it popped up at my local thrift store in perfect condition with no chips or breaks, I had to grab it. It’s sold online on the Chive website for $34.95, but I purchased mine secondhand for $4.50.

It looks adorable with an assortment of little stems in it on my kitchen counter.

Kid’s clothes, $7.50 (one on half price) down to $6.25 total for three

Last, but not least, I checked the kid’s section for some denim in fun colors and prints. I found these three items, which totaled $6.25 for all of them. These cute little pants and dress were cut down into patches, which I used for a visible mending project on a pair of favorite jeans. And I still have plenty of patches left for future projects!

April Thrift Haul

This was a busy month, so I was thrilled to have a couple hours to myself to go thrifting over the weekend. I found nothing on my ‘ongoing thrifting’ list, but I did find four great tops to add to my closet!

Old Navy Embroidered Blouse, $7.79

I love a chambray shirt and I love embroidery, so this top was an easy choice and it’s giving me Johnny Was vibes. I can tell from the tags that it was released in Old Navy stores in Fall 2017 and it’s in great condition. It’s an XL, so it’s a little oversized but I’m just happy when I can comfortably close the buttons over my bust… so I’m cool with it.

I think this will look super cute with the sleeves rolled up and tied over spring dresses. I’m also planning to try it open as a topper over a tank top with a pair of darker denim shorts.

American Eagle “Ahh-mazingly soft” boyfriend shirt, $9.49

I’m guessing this shirt was an unwanted gift, because it still had the tags attached with the retail price ripped off. True to it’s name, it is pretty darn soft. I love the colors of this plaid and the oversized fit. It’s not very springy, but I’ve washed it and added it to my drawer to pull out next fall. It will look adorable with a pair of jeans and boots!

Rag & Bone linen knit top, $5.29

The neck tag that lists the size on this top was missing, but the inside tag on the inner side seam was still there to let me know that this is 100% linen and from Rag & Bone. I did a little Google Image search and was shocked that this top retailed for $160! It is super cute, but a little cropped for me. So, I plan to wear it with a higher rise skirt, or underneath one of my sleeveless linen dresses.

Lou & Grey top, $8.49

This was another easy top to track down, as it is Lou & Grey brand sold at Ann Taylor Loft. I found the same shirt new-with-tags on Poshmark, and it retailed for $69.50. I wasn’t sure if I would like the waist twist, but after washing it and trying it on, it’s super adorable. It is also incredibly soft and reminds me of a pair of well-worn flannel pajamas. I can’t wait to pair this with skirts, as well as jean shorts.

March Thrift Haul

Earlier this week, I shared what has been leaving my house through Poshmark and Facebook group sales. Well, here are two things that came into my house… Yes, just two items again this month. And honestly, one of them may not be staying for very long.

Adidas Track Jacket, $12.99 (retails for $80)

I picked up this track jacket at the thrift store for $13 and I think it’s super cute. I’ve seen and liked the Adidas track jackets with bright flowers and the black stripes up the arms, so this one kind of had the same high/low feel with the fun black and white pattern. It has buttons to close it, nice deep pockets, and even a split hem in the back for a little fun.

The ONLY problem is… it is unlined and I have sensitive skin. So, when I wear it over a t-shirt the inside of the sleeves are kind of itchy with the seams pressing against my skin. I need to either get used to it so that it doesn’t bother me anymore or only throw it on if I’m wearing a long sleeve top. It does look super cute with a pair of leggings for kid drop off/pick up, so I’m going to see if I can make it work!

Johnny Was Cedella Blouse, $39.50 (retails for $205)

You guys, I LOVE Johnny Was. I once went into an actual Johnny Was store and basically just looked around with my mouth open and big old hearts exploding out of my eyes. The problem is, that the brand is so freaking expensive. Even on Poshmark, it’s hard to find a blouse for less than $100. So, I admire it from afar.

But then when I was out at a consignment shop with a friend I found this embroidered top and immediately knew the brand. It’s a size medium, so I wasn’t sure if it would fit my bust, but I was thrilled that it fits! And it’s so freaking cute. I even wore it to work last week with a skirt and cardigan.

It will also look adorable paired with a pair of jean shorts this summer, so I’m so happy I was able to scoop this up for $40!
