Thrifted Finds: Clothes Galore!

I am having a stroke of luck with thrifting and garage sales lately. Maybe it's because of the warmer weather, people are doing more spring cleaning and throwing out stuff. Stuff that I am gleefully picking up. :) I picked up (1) a wool tweed jacket which I have been coveting for a long time but was unwilling to pay over $100 for. You can imagine how happy I was when I saw this. The fit is just right and it is from BCBG Max Azria for $6.98, yes under $7, people! (2) Sheer cotton top from Gap $2.50 - I am thrilled to add purple to my wardrobe as I don't have that many pieces in that colour (3 and 4) a couple of neutral sweaters from Gap (around $2 each) one in cotton and the other wool, great for layering in winter. Obviously I can't count because for some reason, I skipped 5 so let's go to (6) I love this sequined top from Jennifer Lopez. I was surprised at the quality of the garment. I wanted to give it to someone but now I am seriously thinking of keeping it.


I found this beige jacket ($6.98) which had and amazing piping detail together with THE FIND of the day, an Escada top, layered under the jacket, which deserves its own write up ($10) and a spotted skirt for $5. The necklace, you saw me wear in this post.


Anyway, I wanted to write about a pair of gingham pants I picked up and I love that they are so light, just perfect for summer! My face is so red and hot because it is 33 deg C today!! SO HOT! So wonderful and lovely. I love summer!



The pants are $5
Bag is $4 (both no brand names)
Top: Mine, old from Singapore
Shoes: Another great find - Ferragamo's for $8 from the thrift store!! It is brand new and never been worn!



The soles are clean and new.

 

Sorry for the blurry photos. You'd think my DSLR wants to be an Iphone, with the way it's behaving.When all else fails, blame your equipment.

  1. Hi Grace,

    Thank you for your sweet comment! Well, to be honest, even my husband said I look much better since I hava a blog. Perhaps because I have that extra motivation to dress up a little nicer almost everyday!

    Well, let's see if I still can manage after I have children later on! ^_^ Btw, I love the combination on picture number 2. And the pouch like bag you're carrying. I used to thrift a lot there in the US, but thrifting is not common here in Indonesia.
