April Thrift Haul

This was a busy month, so I was thrilled to have a couple hours to myself to go thrifting over the weekend. I found nothing on my ‘ongoing thrifting’ list, but I did find four great tops to add to my closet!

Old Navy Embroidered Blouse, $7.79

I love a chambray shirt and I love embroidery, so this top was an easy choice and it’s giving me Johnny Was vibes. I can tell from the tags that it was released in Old Navy stores in Fall 2017 and it’s in great condition. It’s an XL, so it’s a little oversized but I’m just happy when I can comfortably close the buttons over my bust… so I’m cool with it.

I think this will look super cute with the sleeves rolled up and tied over spring dresses. I’m also planning to try it open as a topper over a tank top with a pair of darker denim shorts.

American Eagle “Ahh-mazingly soft” boyfriend shirt, $9.49

I’m guessing this shirt was an unwanted gift, because it still had the tags attached with the retail price ripped off. True to it’s name, it is pretty darn soft. I love the colors of this plaid and the oversized fit. It’s not very springy, but I’ve washed it and added it to my drawer to pull out next fall. It will look adorable with a pair of jeans and boots!

Rag & Bone linen knit top, $5.29

The neck tag that lists the size on this top was missing, but the inside tag on the inner side seam was still there to let me know that this is 100% linen and from Rag & Bone. I did a little Google Image search and was shocked that this top retailed for $160! It is super cute, but a little cropped for me. So, I plan to wear it with a higher rise skirt, or underneath one of my sleeveless linen dresses.

Lou & Grey top, $8.49

This was another easy top to track down, as it is Lou & Grey brand sold at Ann Taylor Loft. I found the same shirt new-with-tags on Poshmark, and it retailed for $69.50. I wasn’t sure if I would like the waist twist, but after washing it and trying it on, it’s super adorable. It is also incredibly soft and reminds me of a pair of well-worn flannel pajamas. I can’t wait to pair this with skirts, as well as jean shorts.

March Thrift Haul

Earlier this week, I shared what has been leaving my house through Poshmark and Facebook group sales. Well, here are two things that came into my house… Yes, just two items again this month. And honestly, one of them may not be staying for very long.

Adidas Track Jacket, $12.99 (retails for $80)

I picked up this track jacket at the thrift store for $13 and I think it’s super cute. I’ve seen and liked the Adidas track jackets with bright flowers and the black stripes up the arms, so this one kind of had the same high/low feel with the fun black and white pattern. It has buttons to close it, nice deep pockets, and even a split hem in the back for a little fun.

The ONLY problem is… it is unlined and I have sensitive skin. So, when I wear it over a t-shirt the inside of the sleeves are kind of itchy with the seams pressing against my skin. I need to either get used to it so that it doesn’t bother me anymore or only throw it on if I’m wearing a long sleeve top. It does look super cute with a pair of leggings for kid drop off/pick up, so I’m going to see if I can make it work!

Johnny Was Cedella Blouse, $39.50 (retails for $205)

You guys, I LOVE Johnny Was. I once went into an actual Johnny Was store and basically just looked around with my mouth open and big old hearts exploding out of my eyes. The problem is, that the brand is so freaking expensive. Even on Poshmark, it’s hard to find a blouse for less than $100. So, I admire it from afar.

But then when I was out at a consignment shop with a friend I found this embroidered top and immediately knew the brand. It’s a size medium, so I wasn’t sure if it would fit my bust, but I was thrilled that it fits! And it’s so freaking cute. I even wore it to work last week with a skirt and cardigan.

It will also look adorable paired with a pair of jean shorts this summer, so I’m so happy I was able to scoop this up for $40!

February Thrift Haul

After last month’s one item thrift ‘haul’, this month’s thrifted purchases feel downright decadent! Let’s check out this month’s finds:

Eileen Fisher wool sweater, $7.99

I gave you a sneak peek of this sweater in my Sweater Shaver post earlier this month. It is an absolutely fabulous 100% Extra Fine Merino Wool sweater that retails for $228. When I got it home, I washed it on cold and laid it flat to dry. Then, I used my sweater shaver to get rid of any of the little annoying pills and it now looks as good as new!

Marc New York Linen Skirt, $9.49

This skirt was new with the $79 retail tags still attached. Even though it was new, I brought it home and washed it on cold and let it hang dry to get rid of that thrift store smell.

I like the fit of this skirt and the cute pockets, but I’m not sure if I’m fully loving the color. I’ll try it with my summer wardrobe in a few months when it warms up and see if it works. Otherwise, I may dye it a bit darker or a different shade of the current orangy/yellow-ish/brown.

Vintage Brown Linen Skirt, $7.79

Another linen skirt to add to my collection. This one seems a bit less casual, so it will be great for work. It’s a pretty classic fit and has just the right about of swish in the skirt.

The runched waist part is actually supposed to be in the back, but I kind of like it better in the front for visual interest:

Talbots Star Blouse, $9.99

I love the lightweight cotton of this Talbots skirt and the teeny tiny little stars. I was shocked that this was labeled as a 2x, because it basically fits like an oversized large or regular XL. However, I remember someone saying Talbots clothing is notoriously small, so that may be the issue.

Any which way, it fits a little blousy and will be adorable tucked into skirts for work. With that being said, I bought this at Goodwill (typically I only go to 2nd Avenue) and thought it was priced kind of high for a shirt.

I wore it to work on Monday, with a black linen skirt, tights and booties:
