So here since the beginning of the year, I have been thrifting several times, with only a little luck, sometimes coming away empty-handed. But I was able to find some great pieces eventually. I had a 25% off coupon for Value Village, and the prices are listed pre-coupon. As usual I found a few dresses as that is the section I always search first when ever I thrift, that way if my time in-store is short, I will have looked at my favourite things first.
This patterned dress is very 80s and I just had to snip the enormous shoulder pads out of it to make it fit better. Only $9.99 Salvation Army Thrift Store
I love this bat-wing sleeved 80s dress with the matching belt. Fits like a dream without the huge shoulder pads I removed. $13.99 Value Village
This peacock coloured dress is amazing, even if it is a little short. I may be able to take down the hem a bit, or add a band of coordinating fabric in the waist or hem. Haven’t decided yet. $10.99 Value Village
This oatmeal coloured ultra suede dress with pockets and a belt may become a dress with a little tweaking or a long sleeveless coat. Haven’t decided with this one yet, it will go into my re-fashion stash until I do. $8.99 Salvation Army Thrift Store.
Navy and white, especially in polka dots, is one of my favourite combinations. This little top was only $4.99 at Value Village.
I scored 3 pairs of pants (that are plenty long enough for me) and a pair of capris while thrifting. Varying in price from $6.99 to $8.99 at Value Village and Salvation Army Thrift Store. From Top Left going L-R top to bottom; red capris with original tags still on, khaki pants, slim leg jeans, wide leg trouser jeans.
So what do you think of my finds. I think the little blue and white top will look amazing with the red capris in the spring. Cheers, Michele
