Thrifting Adventure: Pennsylvania
(My card reader for my DSLR was acting up last night so I had to use a regular camera to take these photos. These pictures do NOT give these items any justice but I wanted to share my great finds.)
My boyfriend and I spent our weekend in Pennsylvania to enjoy Halloween with his family and friends. Every time I go, I’m always looking forward to doing something new and this time around, thrifting was a must. I went to two Salvation Army in Scranton and in Eyon and found a good amount of amazing items.
At the Scranton location, these are the items I got:
Eddie Bauer blue button down
($4.99) I’ve been inspired by a few pictures on Pinterest to find a light blue button down shirt. This one was exactly what I was looking for and to top it off, it’s extremely soft!
Carole Little cashmere sweater
($4.99) My boyfriend found this and insisted that I get it. I really like how bright it is and I can definitely see myself rocking it sometime in the early spring. Thanks for the great find bf!
At the Eyon location, these are the items I got:
($3.99) I went straight to the purse section and found this clutch. The cool thing about it is that inside there is an attachment that includes a mirror for when I need to reapply my makeup! I was sold once I saw that.
Joan Leslie blazer
($3.50) The last time I wore the color red was in high school 7 years ago. I can’t explain why I stopped wearing it but I decided that I needed to welcome the color back into my closet. I’ve been completely inspired by the recent trends of colored blazer and the color red, so this piece works very well. I know I’m going to save this for a girls night out.
Studio I tweed blazer
($4.99) People Style Watch magazine is one of my many resources on how I stay connected on the latest trends, inspirations, and styling ideas. In the November issue, there was a section on 3 Key Investment Pieces and one of them was a Tweed Jacket.
Josephine button down
(4.99) This is my 3rd top that has an invisible button down detail and I just love the smooth, clean look that this detail gives this shirt. I also don’t have this shade of color in my wardrobe so this was a must have.
Anne Klein II button down
(4.99) First off… this photo doesn’t give this shirt justice. It’s actually a VERY dark navy/ black. Another button down with the invisible button down detail. I love how soft this shirt feel and the button at the top is really cool.
In both stores, I spent a total of $53.90, making it about $4.49 for each item. This was a great thrift shopping trip because if you look at it, I could have spent $54 at one store and only walk out with 1 complete outfit but I managed to get 12 different items that I can incorporate int0 my wardrobe and create numerous amounts of outfits. I totally think I’m winning here!
The month of October was a huge eye opener for me in regards to thrift shopping. I’ve been inspired by so many fashion bloggers online who thrift shop and saved so much money on fabulous items. It’s one of the main reasons why I have a blog today, to help me explore on my fashion style as a young adult. Personally, I think I’ve gone a little overboard on the shopping and spent a little bit more than I usually do. So I’ve decided that I will set myself on a budget of $50 a month and at the end of the month, I will share with you all on my great finds. This way I will continue to build on my wardrobe and also inspire you guys that thrift shopping is an awesome alternative way to shop (and save money).
