May Thrift Haul: Dressing Room Styling Session

29 May

I actually wasn’t planning to post a thrift haul this month, because I didn’t have a chance to thrift and wasn’t anticipating any free time until June! But then last Friday I made a 20 minute stop to a crappy thrift store by me that usually doesn’t have anything good… I found 2 dresses and also 2 pieces that would work with the dresses, so I decided to have an impromptu dressing room styling session.

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

Outfit 1 and 2:

This thrift store had all dresses marked at $7 and sweaters at $6, so the whole outfit on the right cost a total of $13! The dress is just a simple black dress with a flattering gathered waist. The cardigan was from Talbots and a little too big, so I pushed up the sleeves and gave it a little shape with a hand-on-hip pose. I actually kind of love it paired with my fun bright yellow sandals! I ended up buying the black dress because it fits me well and I have a few fun sweaters/blazers that will pair well with it for work.

Outfit 3 and 4:

Here’s another dress and topper combo, this time I went with a faux wrap dress ($7) and zip up jean jacket ($9). This dress is actually a size too big, but you can really only tell in the length. I’m going to chop it a few inches and hem it right above my knees. I think it looks cute as heck with the jean jacket and those fabulous sandals! I liked that this jean jacket had zipper in the front rather than buttons, but I was a bit too busty to zip it up comfortably. I bought this dress for the $7 and will be pairing it with a similar jean jacket that I already own.

So, for a total of $14 I ended up adding two more easy dresses to my wardrobe!

Do you think I made the right choices? What are your thoughts on my quickie dressing room styling session?

    Love both dresses – especially the sleeves on the black dress! I love that they are a little wider than a tank/sleeveless, but not quite a typical “short sleeve.” And love the quickie try on sessions!

    You look great in all four looks, but my favorites would be the wrap dress, and with the jacket! How cute!As I still say, you got it goin’on! I wish I had it goin’on. I haven’t had luck thrifting lately…..
