Thrift Store Haul

August 5, 2010

As a preface to this post, I don’t endorse those horrific “shopping haul” videos on Youtube where girls go and spend $100 at the mall on trendy junk and post it online.

I’m writing this post because the lovely Katherine of Blush Fashion 18 asked to see what I got when I went thrifting with a friend. The original plan was to go to Southern Thrift on 50th Avenue in Nashville, but we got distracted by Lion’s Thrift on the way. It was a thrift store nightmare- the air conditioning was out and the place reeked of vintage clothes (in a bad way). The staff was so sweet and kept offering me and Christina water bottles. After we picked out a few things, the sweetest Latino lady cashier told us to go back and get more. Apparently, it was bag day- all you can stuff in a bag for $5. And this is the reason I’m calling this a thrift store haul.

Lovely vintage argyle cardigan with super cool buttons. I’m going to have to cut out the shoulder pads.

Ivy Jane black crop top with gold sequin esque things on the neckline.

Valentino boyfriend button down to wear with skinnies and flats.

Vintage peach cardigan/top.

Adorable white blazer. Hopefully I can bleach the stains out!

From Southern Thrift I got 2 things for $1 each!

Super cool faux gemstone earrings.

Vintage Anne Klein belt with a lions head. I’m going to wear this as a belt or a necklace.

Christina and I also went to FABU this adorable boutique in an old house that was like a maze.

I got these gorgeous earrings for $30. It was probably way more than I should have spent on them, but they were so glamourous and I’d been wanting a pair for quite a while.

Sadly I didn’t get a photo of my outfit. It was way to hot (around 100 degrees). But Christina and I both looked super cute wandering around Nashville.

What fun pieces have you been scoring from thrift stores lately???
