Apparently my May thrifting was all about Jack. And shoes, shoes, shoes! And a dress. And some workout clothes. Anyways, let’s get on with checking out my May thrift haul!
Thrifted for Jack:
Gerry Swim Trunks, $2.99 (retail $13.99)
Cat & Jack Uniform Shorts, $3.99 (retail $14.99)
Converse sneakers, $7.99 (retail $35)
I’ve mentioned before that I like to have a couple pairs of cheap swim shorts around for when Jack goes to summer camp and inevitably ruins them. I thought these were super cute and at only $3 it made sense to snap them up. The uniform shorts are in unworn condition and I think they’ll be good for our cruise next December. They’re a plain front (rather than cargo shorts), so they will look nice with a polo or button up shirt. As for the sneakers, whenever I see an almost unworn pair of Chucks in a size or two up from what Jack is wearing, I buy them! Sure, he isn’t in a size 1 yet… but it’s only a matter of time before he has a growth spurt and suddenly needs bigger shoes!
Hot Dots Grade 1 Reading, $4.99 (retail $24.99)
Kid’s Mosaic Stone Kit, $5.99 (retail $15.99)
Ice Age Mini Skateboard, $8.99 (retail $29.99)
With summer coming up, I’ve been looking for some fun workbooks and stuff to keep Jack engaged with his sight words and help him with his reading. This Hot Dots set is super cool and perfect for his age. I’m not sure if this has been used, because all the pieces were in the box and there were no batteries in the pen. I just added a couple AAA’s and we were good to go. As soon as I gave it to him, Jack was sounding out words and using the pen to make it buzz or talk back to him. So glad I scooped this one up!
The mosaic stone kit will be a cool summer project and is totally worth the $6 I paid to keep him entertained for a bit. As for the skateboard, Jack has been asking for one on and off for a few months. This Ice Age mini skateboard is brand-spanking-new in the plastic and even comes with a cool carrying case. As soon as I got it home, I ordered a safety gear set off Amazon (knee pads, elbow pads, wrist pads). I’m saving this one to give him on his last day of school and he’s going to totally freak out in excitement!
Thrifted for Me:
Rag and Bone Standard Issue Lace-Up Sneakers, $5.99 (retail $199)
Sesto Meucci Nudara Woven Leather Sneakers, $7.99 (retail $264)
Keds Love Taylor Swift Heart Sneakers, $5.99 (retail $55)
Okay, so I got pretty lucky in the shoes aisle! I first spotted these super cute Rag and Bone sneakers and immediately grabbed them. They are a great neutral gray color and are super comfortable. There were a few scuffs on the rubber, but soft scrub and about 60 seconds of scrubbing got them back to looking brand new.
While browsing the shoe section, I found one of the Sesto Meucci Nudara Woven Leather sneakers and tried it on. I immediately loved it and went on the hunt for the other shoe! I looked EVERYWHERE in that aisle multiple times and just when I was finally ready to concede defeat, I FOUND IT! I knew that this brand tends to be pretty pricy, but I had no idea how expensive it was until I did some homework. These exact shoes retailed for $264, which makes this $8 find the deal of the day!
Ked’s loves Taylor Swift and so do I! These cute little heart Keds are basically unworn, but missing a little gold heart charm. I’ll wear these all summer long with my jean shorts!
RBX Stratus Space Dyed Hoody, $6.99 (currently on sale for $24.99)
Yogalicious Overlapped Back Tank Top, $3.99 (retail $22.99)
Zella Training Jacket, $6.99 (retail $99.00)
I love some almost-brand-new workout clothes for a steal! They’re actually still selling the exact hoody online, so it must not be very old at all. The tank top has a nice high-neck (to keep my chest protected from the sun on summertime runs) and a split back.
I love the quality of Zella workout clothes and have bought a few pieces from Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. This Zella Training Jacket is super cute with mesh cut outs on the arms and upper back. It also has extra-long sleeves with thumbholes, which I LOVE. It was super dusty/dirty though, so as soon as I got home from the thrift store I threw it in the wash and then let it air dry. It’s super similar to an all-black version they are selling on the Nordstrom website for $99… so WIN! I’ve been throwing it on every weekend since I bought it to keep warm in chilly restaurants.
Vince Pencil Stripe Relaxed Long Sleeve top, $4.99 (retail $95.00)
I love Vince, but usually when I find an item I like it’s still way too pricy for me. This cotton top is so soft and oversized. I can see wearing it with a pair of skinny jeans this fall with a little half-tuck for some shape.
Zac & Rachel floral blouse, $5.99 (retail $23.00ish)
I’m not familiar with this brand at all, but my friend says she gets it at Marshalls. I really like the colors in this top, the tab-sleeves and the longer back. I think it will look great with my skinny black trousers for work in the fall!
Anthropologie Moulinette Soeurs dress South Shore Dress, $11.99 (retail $138)
I know my Anthropologie brands, so when I saw that this soft jersey dress was Moulinette Soeurs I threw it in my basket. This dress was at Anthropologie in March 2017 and came in a couple different patterns. It has a higher neckline, cap sleeves and a scoop back. I initially bought it to sell it on Poshmark or the Anthropologie Buy/Sell page, but once I tried it on I almost changed my mind… I didn’t love it 100% though, so I went ahead and listed it for $40 and sold it within a couple hours!
Land’s End Home Chenille Blanket, $7.99 (retail $69.95)
I did a little browsing down the bedding aisle because I tend to collect quilts and saw this pretty grass green blanket. The Land’s End Home tag looks a little old to me, but they have almost identical blankets currently on their website for $69.95… so maybe it’s not really that old? I’m of the mind that you can never have enough fuzzy blankets, so this one came home with me to live in our den.
I’d love to hear your thrifting stories! Did you find a diamond in the rough (literally or figuratively)?
