Thrift Gift 2: Back to Goodwill

thrift shopping I didn’t mean to go thrifting again, but see, what had happened was, I had some more stuff to drop off at Goodwill. That’s a good thing, because it means I’m purging items that I no longer need and supporting a good cause, right?

I’d never been to this particular location before, so I figured I’d better check it out to make sure my donated goods were going to be put to good use. Plus, I needed some more gray pants and I figured thrift store prices are better than even the best sales.

I definitely found some good loot:

thrift shopping I’m still waaayyy into old lady pants and oversized blazers. The sweaterdress is a size 3x (I never pay attention to sizes when thrifting, it’s almost never accurate due to vanity sizing, etc.) but I figure I can make it work with a belt, and the embroidery seems kind of Marni-ish to me. What do you think?

See how I’m (pretty much) sticking to my color palette? I’m telling you, knowing which specific shades and prints could be easily incorporated into my wardrobe made things so much easier when going through the seemingly endless racks at Goodwill. Definitely a good idea. Plus, I think I may have found my new favorite store.

    I love that you differentiate between old lady pants and teacher pants. Whatever you’re calling them, they are AWESOME and I need a pair for myself!

    that scalloped blazer is pure gold–completely chloe but i love the darker palette which is more suitable for fall/winter. and i’m seeing the marni in that sweater dress. fantastic finds. there’s a goodwill down the street from where i live, and i love it to death.

    big x.

    I like your excuse for thrifting…it sounds believable to me! LOL. I will be straight up, I just like to go and see what I am missing. I get jealous if someone gets something that I should have had.

    Great pics…LOL at “teacher pants”…I’m a teacher and I run from those types of pants. But I might have to rethink that!
