My closet’s been in a sorry state for the past few years, but I’ve slowly built it back up again with my thrift store finds. The downside is I now have heart palpitations when I have to pay more than $10 for a piece of clothing. The upside is my closet is a lot happier.
My thrifting jaunts this past week netted me a new dress, shoes, jeans, and a top, so I put together a few outfits consisting of all-thrifted components. Except for underwear. I DO have standards.
First up, my dress and shoes!
Dress: Fossil (brand new!!), Salvation Army, $5
Jacket: Eddie Bauer, Value World, $6
Leggings: Mossimo (brand new), Goodwill, $2
Purple Leather Purse That Probably Doesn’t Match This Outfit But I Don’t Care Because I LOVE It: brand unknown, Goodwill Outlet, $.69/lb so probably like a quarter?
Shoes: Antonio Melani, Goodwill, $4.50
Top and jeans time!
Top: Josephine, Value World, $6.50
Jeans: Ann Taylor LOFT, Value World, $4.50
Necklace: brand unknown, hometown thrift store, $1
Shoes: Tod’s patent leather driving moccasin, hand-me-downs from my sister, $0 (yes, THAT Tod’s, my sister is a thrift-store goddess)
So in a nutshell, thank you kind people (and stores with unsold merchandise) of Indianapolis, you’ve given me lots of options when I ask myself, “what should I wear today?”
