Thrift Finds

Hi guys! I’m really excited about some recent treasures that I’ve come across! Check em out…

Adrian actually thrifted this awesome grandpa sweater and was going to put it in the shop but I decided I needed it so now it is mine ♥…

I thrifted this Esprit jumper last weekend from Goodwill.  Have I mentioned that I love corduroy?  I don’t have a lot of it but I always look forward to Autumn so that I have a reason to wear it as much as possible…

I love this pastel plaid button up that I thrifted from Goodwill and I’m actually wearing it today.  If memory serves me, Adrian told me that this shirt reminds her of Easter.  By the way, I have wayyyy more plaid shirts than any one person should own:

They are just so incredibly comfortable and super easy to thrift but I sometimes end up feeling constantly prepared to be a house painter or to make moonshine while hiding out in the woods…

This vintage suede jacket was a steal and will be available in the shop soon…

and check out the buckle on this baby! Half wood + half plastic = insanity. Unfortunately, I already own around 60 belts (you read that right) and will probably be putting this in the shop soon as well…

And last, but certainly not least, I thrifted this pair of brass butterflies for only $1.50! Aren’t they too cute?

Happy thrifting and have a great weekend!

Rust and Plaid

Hi friends!

I already showed you guys this rust colored sweater in a thrift finds post but I wanted to show you my entire outfit.  I work in an office but I am often able to wear jeans to work so this was one of those days.  I think the rust and blue look good together…

I thrifted the plaid shirt (that I wore underneath) separately from the sweater but, paired with some jeans and some oxfords, I felt really comfy without getting in trouble for being too casual in the office…

Rust Sweater – thrifted @ Salvation Army

Plaid button up – thrifted @ Goodwill

Jeans – Mossimo (Target)

Shoes – Steve Madden (via Ross)

I decided  to try a “jumping shot” like some of my favorite bloggers (see the lovely Erin from the Calivintage blog).  After seeing the pictures, I’ve decided that I will be keeping my feet planted firmly on the ground for now! : /

We’re adding new items to the shop every day ((we are listing machines!!)) so be sure to check back for updates!

Thrift Finds

Hey ya’ll!

Happy 2012 to ya! I spent New Year’s Eve with a small group of friends, laughing, drinking, singing and dancing in the safety of my own living room.  It was probably the best NYE that I can remember in a long time.  I feel like some holidays get hyped up so much that, in the end, they always end up kind of disappointing. That’s how NYE usually is for me but this year was fun and, hopefully, a good indication of what this year has in store for me!

That being said, 2012 has been a great year for thrifting so far and I’ve come home with way more goodies than my closet knows what to do with:

I thrifted this Rust colored sweater while I was in Nebraska and I recently got this plaid button up shirt at Goodwill.  Fate worked out in my favor as they were, obviously, meant to be together…

I discovered this pretty yellow sweater the other day at Goodwill.  The scalloping (is that a word??) at the neck and the cutout details are my favorite part…

Adrian and I went to Deseret Industries (commonly referred to as the D.I.) yesterday where I bought this cream cable knit sweater.  I’m contemplating putting it in the shop since sweater weather lasts for approximately 45 minutes in Arizona…

Tan & White Polka Dot Sweater – thrifted at the D.I.

Camel Ralph Lauren Corduroy Trousers – thrifted at the D.I.

Vintage Mustard Purse – thrifted at the D.I.

My birthday is coming up soon and I have been debating purchasing a “new” fancy dress for the occasion.  Not surprisingly, I was having a hard time coming to terms with spending more than $8 for an article of clothing.  The thrift gods answered my prayers and showered me with two beautiful dresses to choose from…

This dress is originally from French Connection but I thrifted it from the D.I. as well. You can’t see very well in the photo but the dress has a unique,geometric cut out in the bust area.  I love how it sort of has a tiki feeling to it!

I originally picked this dress out for Adrian thinking it would fit her better than me but it turns out it fits me like a glove! When worn, the skirt flares out and the back has multiple criss-crossed straps.  Oh and the best part is that the brand name is called “Spoiled Girls”. PAH!… I love it but I can’t decide which one I like best out of the two.  Any opinions would be appreciated!

Now, I will leave you with this creepy-as-hell picture of my friend Tia’s cat sitting on my (vintage! thrifted!) chair:

Gimme your sub!

Don’t forget Veronika is offering 20% off at Superstition Vintage to all of her readers!  We both love her blog and when we found out that she uses the sponsorship money from Tick Tock Vintage to pay for school supplies for her third grade classroom, we knew we wanted to be involved.  Be sure to go and check her out!
