October was a super busy month, so I only had time to make one thrifting stop and one consignment stop. I did get a little lucky though and picked up four clothing items. Let’s check out this month’s mini haul!
Desigual Linen Top, $10
This linen/cotton mix top with a chiffon back was new with tags at the thrift store. I liked the linen feel to the top and the pretty embroidery that was reminiscent of Lucky Brand and Johnny Was. Paying $10 was quite high for thrift prices, but I really liked it and can see myself wearing it with skinny jeans and boots this fall. If it was a mistake, it was only a $10 mistake and I can live with that.
I first visited the Chic to Chic consignment store last month, so I decided to do a quick stop to see if they had added anything new. Much of the selection was the same as my previous visit, but I did find a couple winners.
Nightcap by Carisa top, $19.98
This top was on clearance for $19.98 and I actually tried it on last month when I was in the store. At the time, the bust was a little tight… so I put it back. This time, it fit great (I guess I’ve been working out a bit more) and I love the bohemian fit and the pretty lace/crochet bits. I wasn’t familiar with the brand at all, so I googled it and found their website. Similar tops go for $200 -$300, which is quite a surprise. I think I’ll probably wear this in the fall over a fitted black tank top and jeans. I can also see wearing this as a swimsuit cover up with a pair of jean shorts on my upcoming cruise!
Vigoss Moto Jacket Sweatshirt, $24.95
This is probably my favorite score of the month. Once again, I’m not familiar with the brand (but it appears that it is sold at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack), but this looks like a moto jacket + a hoodie sweatshirt + a teddy bear had a baby. A warm and soft baby. I love the fit of the moto jacket combined with the softness of cotton sweatshirt material. But what I REALLY love is the plush lining inside the body of the jacket and the hood. It is soooo warm and comfy. I could totally throw this on when I’m a little chilly in my house and not be embarrassed at all to leave it on for errands. This will get tons of wear!
Eileen Fisher Silk Georgette Crepe Round Neck Boxy Top, $39.95
This silk top still has the Nordstrom tags attached with the original price of $248, so for $40 I had to at least try it on. It’s actually this exact top, sold out on the Nordstrom Rack website.
This blouse is an XL and I typically wear a medium or large in Eileen Fisher, so it is a bit oversized on me. It’s so soft and flows so nicely, so I’m hoping that I can pair it with some skinny trousers and a cardi. Or maybe jeans and a bright pair of Rothy’s for a nicer casual look? I’m kind of having second thoughts about this one… hoping it isn’t a mistake, but only time will tell.
