I used to quite often do a thrifty Thursday post and realized today I haven't done one in so long!! I had a few photos that I didn't share in the month of August and realized they're all outfits that are mostly from thrift stores. So here is a "thrifty Thursday" and a "style flash" all in one...All happen to be in the same spot, are skirt/dresses, and have the same bag. I didn't plan this. hehe.
I'll start with the bag since it will be in all three outfits--It is from Anthropologie I bought on sale at Downeast. Downeast carries overstock or damaged name brand items, so I often find some really fun gems like this bag for seriously low prices. I'm actually wearing a dress here and it is JCrew I found at a thrift store for $4. It's a tank dress I will probably wear all year round! Cute as a swimsuit cover up, or with a sweater or button down like I'm wearing here. Top is also JCrew I got when they did an extra 50% off their sale. I'm a sale scrounger I swear...I don't often pay full price for anything. Where my patience comes in handy. Sandals are Saltwaters I bought second hand from a friends IG shop. I'm obsessed with them.
Total all cost me under $60. If you know the prices at Anthropologie and JCrew alone...This price should seem pretty impressive. hehe.
Dress is a thrift find. I have gotten so many compliments on this dress which makes me laugh cuz ITS A FRUMPY MOMMISH DRESS!! I think I paid $2 for it and my intentions when I bought it was an at home dress while it was hot. I wore it out this day ONCE and had people asking me where I got it. haha. Sometimes I just don't know. Sandals are Madewell I got on serious sale.
Total all cost me under $50.
This outfit kinda has a story. (which I shared already on Instagram, so sorry if you're getting it twice.) I bought this vintage Levi top at a thrift store and found it a little tight for comfort...Has NO stretch to it. I couldn't get rid of it though cuz I really liked it. Kinda the perfect denim top. I put it on this day and it fit me with room to spare! The running I've done this summer has definitely paid off. Skirt is a thrift find from my time in Brazil. I remember this lady had a tiny little shop in front of her house and we would walk by it frequently on our way home. This skirt was hanging right up in the front and I admired it often. (As a missionary your funds are small and precious.) Well..As I got to the end of my time there I had to have it. It has a few holes and the under slip is a little ripped but it just adds to it's character for me. Clogs I won on an instagram giveaway!! They're Uxibal.
I paid less than $30 for this whole ensemble!
Which "thrifty Thursday" look is your favorite?
