INSANE THRIFT HAUL: $400 worth of clothes for $18.

Thrifting has irreparably corrupted me.  When you get used to paying 1% of the price for designer clothes, anything over $2 or $3 seems “expensive.”  Yes, I take great pride in regularly wearing entire outfits that cost less than a can of Spam.  Case and point…

Ahhhmazing thrift haul today, but no energy or time to post pics. You’ll just have to take my word for it.

I got, in no particular order:

  • A brand new (tags still on) Lord and Taylor skirt, original price was $69.99. I paid $1.
  • A camel colored suede jacket AND matching skirt by Bernardo (Nordstrom’s): I paid $2.
  • A Jones New York beige wool suit.  I liked the jacket but the pants were petite so I “donated them back” to the store. Anyway, I paid: $2 (but in my head the jacket was only a dollar since it was originally a set).
  • Four items that, surprisingly, come from Sears (who knew they made cute clothes?) – An Apostrophe gray sleeveless dress with a matching dress jacket and a Ronni Nicole grey textured sleeveless dress with a matching long-sleeve sweater top with lovely silver buttons that have gorgeous detailing. The two dresses and tops cost a total of $4.  Insane.
  • A pair of Gap dress slacks: $2
  • A pair of brown Lands End corduroys: $2
  • An Escapade beige suede jacket with sweater back/sleeves and collar: $2
  • 2 pair of Calvin Klein tights, brand new, still in their sealed packages: $1.25 each

Oh, and I saw a pair of Stuart Weitzman slingbacks – brand new – for $15. And a sharp yellow/black Kasper suit (skirt & blazer) for $2. Got neither as they weren’t my size, but it still gave me a buzz.

Retail, for my items, would have been at least $400.  I paid $18.  I am over the moon.  Several of the items are gifts that I’ll be sending off tomorrow!

  1. That’s awesome, I was soooo addicted to buying second hand in Australia, but here in Dublin the prices are ridiculous. I used to be able to go into a store in Australia with $5 and come out with a set of nice clothes! Here I’d be lucky to get pair of crappy jeans, and you can forget about a nice western shirt!

    Great haul! A lot of people make a few bucks buying thrift and selling on ebay as well.

    Such a sweet satisfaction getting great deals like that huh!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂
