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!
