It’s been awhile since I wrote about my latest fashion finds. I LOVE thrift store shopping. In fact, I think it’s one of my superpowers. I’ve found Chloe boots for $12, Seven for All Mankind jeans for $3, and countless unique pieces that are now crowding my closet.
When I travel to different cities, I always try to hit the local thrift and consignment shops, because different cities have different vibes. In other words, you can scoop up glitzy ball gowns in New Orleans, Brooks Brothers and vintage Coach in Connecticut, and warm down vests and Levis in Seattle.
Vegas did not disappoint.
The first store we visited was Savers, which was a gigantic, well-organized treasure trove.
I filled my cart without any effort at all. My favorite find was the slinky dress pictured above, which is a Spiegel number with the tags still on.
Tip: don’t trust tags at thrift shops.
This dress is labeled “size 13-14.” I wear a size 4, and it fits me just fine.
I also snapped up this Ann Taylor foldover nappa leather clutch for $6! Retail cost for this is $98, so this was a total score.
Tip: scour the accessories area.
How many times have you bought a belt or bag that you just didn’t wear, then donated it to Goodwill? Exactly.
Then I found a little sleeveless sweater dress for $4.
Tip: buy trendy pieces at thrift stores instead of paying full price.
Our next stop was the Glam Factory, a vintage shop in the Arts District. Here I found a hooded floor-length cape from the fifties. It’s super dramatic and I can hardly wait to wear it out on my next date with Josh.
Do you shop at thrift stores? Do you seek them out like I do? What have been your best finds?
Anyone up for a thrift store shopping trip at the FTU in Seattle in April?
