Just A Few Recent Purchases...

Here are just a few items that I have purchased recently. I decided to add a couple non-thrift items to the mix as well. Even though the first 2 shoes were not purchased at thrift stores, I think I still got great deals on them both! I am an extremely frugal person when it comes to shopping, but I only buy items that look good. If it is dirt cheap but doesn’t look good, I won’t buy it and I think that is a very important rule to live by. Often we buy things just because they are cheap and we end up not wearing them anyways. You will save more money by not buying the item at all than by buying it because the price was low and just letting it hang in your closet! 

Non-Thrift Items:

These black patent leather oxfords are currently my favorite pair of shoes in my entire closet. Definitely the best $1o.oo I’ve ever spent. No I did not make a typo, were only $1o.oo and they were originally $50.00!! I bought them at Kohl’s which was pleasantly surprising because I don’t usually find much there but that is why I always check the clearance rack anywhere I go! Here is how they look from the side..

I love the color of these suede pumps. They are Steve Madden but I only spent $21.oo on them! Well, this was with my employee discount (I work at Famous Footwear lol). They were $3o.oo but I got them for 3o% off.

Thrift Items:

Gotta love animal print! This blouse has a nice baggy fit, I really like it. The cost was $3.5o.

The cropped top cost $3.5o

I was so pleased when I found this floral blazer and at just $4.oo it was too nice for me to pass up! Here is a close up of the floral print..


This sweater top was $3.50. Here is a close up of the pattern..

Another pair of vintage earrings. These are clip-ons that don’t hurt my ears :) They cost $1.97.

  10. Love, love, love the cropped top and the Steve Madden heels. I am also loving the burberry glass case. I adore your stuff, if u notice I always compliment something u have on whether it be a ring or shoes. LOL, u are so fashionable, u mix up ur clothing very well.=)

  11. yeah...so im SUPER jealous :) thnx for checkin the blog out.

  12. Oh geez- that yellow and black cardi (sweater thing-a-ma-whatsit) is one of the absolute coolest things I've ever seen.

    And I'm glad to see there's someone else who believes in the power of thrifting: people don't believe some of the finds you can make, much less their price. <3

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! And I'm sure you could pull off a pair of lenses: you could always go for a very basic pair in a colour close to yours. Freshlooks has some pretty cheap colour lenses, and I happen to know that Pure Hazel from the Colorblends sereis is universally natural and pretty.

  13. @Lexy of BeautyFash, thank you! I really like the blue shoes too..they just make any outfit pop! lol :)

    @Anonymous, haha I know! I am very happy with the prices!

    @Sing, lol thank you!! I love the sweaters too..even though I already have too many I just cannot stop buying them!

    @Blessing, lol you must!! I get so lucky, I don't know what it is..but I can teach you guys how to get lucky with shopping to so you won't even need me! Lol

    @M1dn1tE.STunN3R, aww thanks! Yeah I'm in love with those clip ons but they are really big lol..and you are so welcome for the songs! Those 2 songs are in my "relaxation" playlist...they are just so chill and nice to listen to when you are trying to simmer down :)

    @Jane, aww thank you boo boo! I know you like my glasses case because you tried to steal it that one day lmao..but all is forgiven :) Thank you for the compliments you are too sweet!

    @♥ Noxin ♥, I know, I love it too!! It looks so much cooler in person, the photos does it no justice lol..and I DEFINITELY believe in the power of thrifting..I feel it's the easiest was to achieve your own, unique looks for a very very low price! And hmmm...I guess I could give the lenses a whirl lol.

    I'm guilty of buying clothes because they're cheap and never wearing them. Or getting tired of never wearing them and throwing something together and not feeling comfortable in it.

    love those $10 loafers! What a steal. Tie up loafers are supposed to be a really hot item over the next few seasons. Those shoes with high-waisted trousers and a cute blouse. Beautiful! Cant wait for the 70's glam trend to get into full effect next year! One of my favorite looks of all time. :-)
