Thrifting rocks







 



Blazer: Bloomingdales (thrifted)
Scarf: American Eagle Outfitters
Sweater: Sears
Dress: DVF (thrifted)
Tights: Fred Meyers
Shoes: American Eagle Outfitters
Clutch: ? (thrifted, no label)

I had a killer week at the second hand store a while back back, someone in town with a large wallet donated a ton of gorgeous stuff and I lucked out, walking away with two DVF dress, a Dolce and Gabbana dress, some Michael Kors stuff, a Marc Jacobs skirt and some other great stuff.  I'm pretty sure I pranced out of the thrift store that day.  That's one of the fantastic things about shopping at second hand stores, if you keep searching eventually you can find some really beautiful, well made stuff for a fraction of the retail price.  Best of all, most second hands store profits go to charity, one is not contributing to the wallet of stores that treat their employees badly  and have shady business practices. Plus, clothes aren't just being throw into the garbage, it's great any thing something can be recycled.

  10. nooo!? that's way too awesome! I think I would have screamed when I got brilliant stuff like that! luckily I sometimes find things like that but no MK or MJ or DVF.. maybe it's because of where I live :P
    anyway, it's a beautiful dress and so is the bag.. and the sun in your photos. I miss sunlight, haven't seen it for days already..
