Thrifting







Thrifting isn't always successful. Any good thrifter will tell you that sometimes they've combed four stores in a row to come away with absolutely nothing. I've certainly had it happen, and it is beyond dissapointing. The thrill of the hunt ends in a grumpy and sullen car ride home.
But every once in a while, there is that perfect trip - you hit up a bunch of stores in a row, and come home with scores of things. You are on top of the world, with a basket full of treasures to prove it. You can come home, spread out your loot, and revel over your savings.
I had a perfect thfiting experience this week - here's all the things I found (along with their prices). Not as much vintage as I typically come home with, but incredibly a lot of current items. Including these two pairs of Urban Outfitters shoes that look brand new - oddly enough found at stores miles apart from each other. Plus a red Topshop dress for only $4, and a worn YSL wallet for $9. Such steals!
What are some of your favorite thrift stores? Your thrifting tips? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. Good stuff. That bunny necklace is so cute! As for thrifting tips.. hmm.. I'd say pushing through all the unsuccessful trips that are an integrated part of thrifting is pretty important, and then I try to brush all the garments with my fingers when I go through the racks, so any silk pieces don't pass me by. silkkkk!

  7. Oh my gosh, I need to go thrifting with you! I've always had trouble with thrifting because it is extremely dissapointing to come back empty handed on those days you can't seem to find any hidden treasures. Now, I'm thinking I should try thrifting again. Maybe I'll end up having a 'lucky day' too...
