December Thrift Haul

26 Dec

During the month of December, I only had one day to go thrifting… but I made the most of it with THREE different stops! Of course, with thrifting you can sometimes find a dozen awesome items at one store, or absolutely nothing no matter how many stores you visit. I ended up finding just two items… but I’m pretty happy with them!

{Pssst, you can read about my previous thrifting adventures here}

Item #1: Lou & Grey Sweatshirt, $4.99

I knew that Lou & Grey is a line carried at Loft, but I didn’t realize they have their own website too. This sweatshirt is a super soft cotton fleecy mix. On their websites, similar sweatshirts sell for around $60. This one is kind of cool because it has a zipper up one side.

So you can zip it up just a bit to show off a pop of color on a t-shirt. Or a little puff of love handles if you’re into that kind of thing. It was soft, comfy and new for $5, so it obviously had to come home with me for lounging this winter.

Item #2: J McLaughlin Zebra Wrap dress, $24.99

This is a J McLaughlin 100% silk wrap dress with the original tags for $218 still on it. I’m only familiar with the brand because I thrifted a sweater from them last year and did a little research. Dresses on their website run from about $190 – $250, and they appear to stick with classic silhouettes in fun prints. I tend to love a good black and white print, so this zebra one intrigued me. However, I posted a dressing room photo on my stories and it got very mixed reviews — with 44% voting to buy and 56% voting to pass.

I ended up buying the dress and I think it will be fun to style for work. I can keep it simple with a black blazer, tights and booties. Or add in some color with a bright cardigan and maybe some colorful brooches. All in all, it was a $25 gamble, so we will see if it pays off!

Did you have any luck thrifting this month? Share your scores!

    I love the Loft top! I just discovered them this year, and know that is a good deal! The zebra dress is adorable. I would put some red with it,some jewelry could be cute. I guess, any color you are in the mood for. That was a good thrifting trip!
