I was inspired this morning to skip my workout in favor of a leisurely treasure hunt at Salvation Army and Goodwill.
I had a very successful day, finding all of this for less than $30…
This vintage dress was only $4.99. I have no idea when I’ll wear it, but it’s so light and fluttery that I had to have it. If it hangs around too long, I’ll repurpose the fabric into something retro-fabulous!
I love leopard print because it tiptoes along that fine line between tacky and acceptable. I love the contrast of an overall conservative look (think twin set and pumps) with one questionable element like this leopard print skirt (and maybe some fishnets). Fully lined and 100% silk for $7.99 at Goodwill!
I’ve been thrift shopping since high school and prices have gone up quite a bit, but I still think it’s worthwhile. I like saving money, reusing things, and supporting charities instead of mall lords and shareholders. Plus, buying my clothing secondhand frees up more money for shoes; I’m forever a contradiction ;)
