If you shop at Savers, you know that they just finished up a promotion where if you donated two grocery size bags of stuff they gave you a 30% off coupon. Well, I had one left and just couldn’t let it go unused. I convinced Adam to go with me, and here is what I found:
Etienne Aigner brown sandals $5.60 Cole Haan driving moccasins $7.00
2010 ( the tag ) Banana Republic skirt $4.20 JCP brown tee $2.80
and a pair of Levi’s jeans $4.90 that I found hanging in the men’s department. I saved a total of $10.45 by using a coupon.
Adam really does have a good eye for label hunting…he found the shoes!
So, I have a bunch of clothes that I haven’t worn yet…that’s no surprise! I decided to take three thrifted tops and pair them all with my Kut From the Kloth white skinny jeans that I bought last year at Nordstrom Rack. Prepare to be amazed! Just kidding…here we go…
Look One features this INC International Concepts (Macy’s brand) top that I thrifted from The Family Thrift store for $5.00. I paired it with a black tank underneath but I could have easily paired it with a gray camisole. This top would look good with gray or black pants too. The top kinda looks funky in the photo, huh. It has a self belt that I had to feed through a hole and a couple of loops…it was complicated! Hey, I’m almost 53…give me a break! ;-)
Look Two features my Chico’s Synergy jacket (which is super comfortable, by the way) that I thrifted from Savers for $7.00. I wanted the jacket to be the focal point so I kept everything else neutral. I also rolled up the jeans one time to make them a tad shorter. This was my husband’s favorite look of the three.
Look Three features this $6.50 Anthracite by Muse for Boston Proper jacket that I thrifted from Thrift Town. This look has a whole lot of sparkle and shine going on with my shoes and the neckline of my top. This time around I rolled my jeans up twice…because I could! Just sayin’.
Don’t tell me that you don’t even own a pair of white jeans…come on now! You can wear them year round…well, I suppose if I still lived in Ohio I wouldn’t be saying that…
This is the other top I got from the WHBM store during my detour to the Grove City Premium Outlets in PA. I bought it with these teal shorts in mind. Unfortunately, my summer of eating has caused these shorts to be too small…I was seriously uncomfortable all day long, and thought I was going to pop a button! Thank goodness it didn’t happen. I won’t be wearing these again anytime soon.
Did you notice I’m wearing my ‘new’ thrifted bracelet from Utah?
When I went to Ohio and visited my sister Annette, besides thrifting her over, I also cleaned out her closet and scored this cute Cleveland Indians gray t-shirt! I’m not a sports fan at all, but I couldn’t say no when she gave this to me…along with this one too…
I also came home with two MORE shirts and a cardigan and dress that originally belonged to me!
Can you tell I need to lose a few pounds or five? Yeah… :-(
Yes, you read that correctly! Adam was right when he said that Michael would like the clothing at Buffalo Exchange. The first thing out of Michael’s mouth was…”this is my kind of place.”
Both boys cleaned out their closets and took their clothing there to trade in. Buffalo Exchange will give you cash on the spot, but they give you MORE money if you take the store credit. Hello…taking the store credit is a no brainer.
Here is Michael’s first thrift store haul:
Notice that some of his haul is new with tags!
Of course I had Michael model his ‘new’ thrifted clothing…
This was his favorite look. It’s my favorite too.
Look number two features a haircut too…
Adam managed to find a couple of things too…
That’s a Calvin Klein Jacket. :-)
This haul would have set me back $130.00 but with our store credit factored in I only paid $80.00. Not bad…not bad at all.
A white skirt was on my thrifted wish list this summer.This I-N-C brand skirt that I got for $10.99 at my friend Julia Jones store, Kouture Konsignment has been my ‘go to’ skirt all summer long. I wore it in Vegas with a simple black t-shirt and a $2.99 ‘turquoise’ necklace that I also thrifted at Kouture Konsignment. Here is a photo:
It was a cute look. I forgot to take a picture, so you will have to trust me on this.
Hold up! I decided to wear the black and white combo again, since I liked it so much…
See…told you it was cute!
Okay, back to this post…
This time around, I paired it with my green $6.00 Ann Taylor top from my Vegas trip, some purple sandals and this jewelry…
This bracelet and pendant are black mother of pearl and amethyst. I bought them at the Navy Exchange in Honolulu Hawaii, BIDT…Before I Discovered Thrifting. I paid $300.00 for it and thought that was a good deal! I mean, it’s really beautiful…but I rarely wear it. In fact, this was the only time I have worn it all summer long. I really am more of a costume jewelry kind of gal.
This cute Tahari top was thrifted at the Assistance League of Albuquerque thrift store during my nine hour thrifting day! It is well worth the $7.00 I paid for it. At first, I paired it with white shorts, but I didn’t like how it looked together. Paired with this white skirt from Loft (old) I think it makes for a super cute look.
What do you think?
