I had a week off between my old job and new job earlier this month, so I made sure to take some time to go thrifting! I didn’t end up with any HUGE winners, but found some basics to add to my closet.
Adrienne Vittadini open sweater vest, $6
I saw this super lightweight and soft sweater vest as I was flicking through the sweater section and it totally caught my eye. Adrienne Vittadini is a brand that I’ve seen previously at Nordstorm Rack. The sleeveless sweater style is a little out of my comfort zone, but pretty on trend with the boho style I like to wear on the weekends. I’m thinking I could pair this over a t-shirt and jean shorts. I looked on pinterest for some other ways to wear it and I love this look too.
Vintage Pleated Skirt, $7
I feel like pleated midi skirts are really huge right now and when I checked pinterest there are tons of outfits that I would love to recreate. This is a vintage brand, probably from the 70’s or 80’s and the stretchy waist is super comfortable. I think this will look fantastic with a lightweight tank top for weekend wear. I can pair it with a longer sleeve blouse for work, or add a tank top/cardigan combo for a pretty preppy look. I already wore it to work with a faux wrap top: you can see it here.
Black Cocoon sweater, $7
This sweater doesn’t have a label on it with a brand or size, just washing instructions. It is really soft and lightweight with mid-length dolman sleeves. I love lightweight sweater layers year-round, so I picked this up for $7 to add to my cardigan collection. I think this oversized cardi would look great with a more fitted tank top and jeans.
After washing it and letting it hang dry, I stuck it in my closet… but when when I went to wear it I noticed the back was all pilled up! I don’t know if I bought it that way, or if it happened in the wash. No biggie, I got out my handy dandy sweater shaver and fixed it right up! Oh, you don’t know what a sweater shaver is? You totally need to read THIS POST!
Cable & Gauge sweater, $7
I love Cable & Gauge sweaters (another Nordstrom Rack brand) and this rusty colored one is super pretty. It has elbow-length sleeves and a nubby texture. I can see throwing this on over a t-shirt and shorts on a cooler summer night.
I’d love to hear your thrifting stories! Did you find a diamond in the rough (literally or figuratively)?
