Thrifted Thursday... OOTD!

Ok, like seriously somebody should have told me long time ago how much money I could have been saving thrifting! HA!
I mean really I NEVER thought in a million years that I would’ve thrift shopped & now I can't seem to STOP!!!! Sadly though I can’t even believe I actually was sleeping on the Thrift Store… Thank God for my Thrifting Bloggies for hipping me to this new trend (well new to me)! I know some of y’all are PRO’s while others of us are AMATEURS!!!!



As for me, I’m still learning the thrifting game but I’m playing to WIN so I don’t see myself dropping the ball anytime soon!
Besides, it’s sooo much fun going on a thrifting treasure hunt; you NEVER know what you may find!!!!


~Check out one of my latest thrifted dresses that I paid a whopping $1.12!!!!!

I accessorized with PINK in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness… *hence, Pink Ribbon on my shoulder* 






Hmmm… I’m not sure if folks still wear shoulder pads in their clothes but I left the pads in to add a little DRESS DRAMA! I’'s ok to have a little DRAMA in your life every now and then! *giggles*




What I'm Wearing:

Cobalt Blue Dress ~ America's Thrift~$1.12
Shoes ~ Burlington ~ $9.99
Accessories ~ LA Lynn’s excluding MK's Watch & Tennis Bracelet (Gifted)


Note to You: I tell folks all the time… If you are new to thrifting you might want to pack some patience, some hand sanitizer, and have a BUDGET!!!! Yesssss, a BUDGET because you will be so SURPRISE at the prices that it’s easy to find yourself over spending!  


~Until next time…


Peace, Love, & Fashion

  1. I tried thrifting my patience level is not good because of my size I give up after looking through a few pieces. I am determined to do better in the new year.

  4. Great finds at some of these Thrift Stores-I’ve found some expensive name brand cookware, pots and pans that normally would run around $50-$150 at the Thrift Store for between $2-$7. I haven't gotten to much into the clothing when I go, but from a glance they seem to have tons of stuff.

  19. I feel you, I've seen more than a few bloggers express how thrifting changed their outlooks, especially ATLiens. I've been longing to visit a thrift shop in my city but I can't get anyone to go with me. Lol. My woman claims she will, but hasn't, as of yet.

  24. Doll I'm loving this beautiful dress on you and the color is such a WOW factor on you. And I love thrifting just wish had more time to do it.
    BTW: just read your email about finding a white blazer on a budget and let me tell you that H&M has some wonderful ones right now. I was just there today and was so tempted to buy one but I had to stop myself :D
    Hope this helps and have a fantastic weekend gorgeous.
