I MIGHT have picked up a few items for myself. :-/
Last week I did THREE thriftovers! I know, right! On Wednesday I thrifted over a friend of mine. O…MG! Can I just tell you that I found a pair of leather pants and they looked AMAZING on her! I kept calling the Savers employees over to the dressing room and made my friend model them. Yes, that’s how I roll. For myself I found this vest:
Yes, it’s another Eddie Bauer goose down vest.
I paid $9.10 for it because I had a coupon.
On Friday I ended up doing a DOUBLE thriftover! The Savers employees were surprised to see me back so soon. This one was an emergency thriftover. I got a call at 11:00 PM the night before from a friend of mine. She wanted me to thrift over her sister, and I was happy to do it! How did it end up being a double thriftover? Well, I always pull two sizes during every thriftover and my friend ( who came with her sister ) happened to be the other size! Let me tell you, there was clothing EVERYWHERE! My client spent over $250.00 and that’s with a 20% off coupon too! That is the most I’ve had anyone spend on clothing. She got an entire new wardrobe and was extremely happy. I won’t say how much my friend spent, but she went home with a bunch of really cute stuff too. ;-)
What did I go home with during this thriftover? Check out this CUSTO sweater made in Spain, yes Spain. See the label?
Did you notice that the design of this garment is copyright protected? Yeah, and with my coupon I paid $8.00 for this approximately $150.00 sweater.
Brace yourself, the design is pretty ‘out there’ but i think it’s pretty cool! Here’s the front:
and the back…
I love it! When I tried it on in the store I did so over my top and for some reason I didn’t realize that the whole bottom half of the front of the shirt is see through! Yeah, that won’t work. I will probably pair it with a nude or black camisole. No one wants to see my belly…not even me!
A brand new Ann Taylor black dress for $6.40!! Yeah… :-)
When I tried it on in the store, I put it on backwards! Hey! It was a double thriftover…I was tired! The front is a cowl neck that’s actually weighted so it hangs correctly and the back is a deep V. Here is the best shot I could get of the back of it.
Now. don’t go thinking that when you hire me to do a thriftover, I’m out there hunting for myself. These items were either pulled for my client and they didn’t want them or I happened to find an item that was my size while searching in my client’s size. Every one of my client’s has two to three buggies of clothing to choose from during their thriftover. Well except for my friend, who when I scheduled her thriftover Savers decided to have a 30% off sale. In order to get just ONE buggy I had to chase down a man in the parking lot to get his and then I had to carefully fold everything to make it fit. That was a feat onto itself!
