Technically, I thrifted these items in November… but I had already published my November Thrift Haul, so I scooted them over to December. And THEN I didn’t even have the opportunity to thrift at all this month. So yeah, I’m totally suffering from thrift withdrawal!
Let’s take a look at my kinda December thrift haul:
Loft dress, $14.99 green tag on sale for 50% off, $7.99
This one still had a nub of the original Loft tag on it, so I’m guessing that’s why my favorite thrift store marked it up at $15! It’s oversized and the fabric is nice and soft, but it is pretty darn shapeless. I know it’s a summer dress, but I’m imagining it with tights, boots and a long cardigan. Maybe a scarf too?
Ellen Tracy tie-cardigan, $5.99 purple tag on sale for 33% off, $4
This lightweight cotton cardigan has pockets and a fun tie that you can either tie in the front or cinch it into a bow in the back. I love the color! It’s in perfect condition, so I think this will be a wonderful topper for work with pants and then when it starts looking a bit worn I’ll transition it into loungewear!
Okay, in preparation for this next score I have to show you some of the dresses that I’ve been drooling over on my Instagram feed:
VELVET. SO MUCH PRETTY VELVET. So when I saw this next item, I snatched it up and crossed my fingers that it would fit:
Velvet wrap dress, $9.99 purple tag on sale for 33% off, $6.70
I mean, it was like someone plucked exactly what I’ve been wanting out of my mind and then marked it down to $6.70! The brand is nothing fancy, but the ¾” sleeves, super soft velvet and twirly skirt is perfect for me to wear this winter. Here is a close-up of the super soft and plush velvet:
I’m thinking I’ll pair it with sparkly flats now and then and then in January maybe throw on a pair of tights and booties!
I’d love to hear your thrifting stories! Did you find a diamond in the rough (literally or figuratively)?
