Thrift Scores Linkup

March was an awesome month for thrifting for me. I tried a couple of stores I’d never shopped before instead of going to the same Goodwill week after week, and it paid off. Without further adieu, my finds:

Vintage Morgan Miller blazer thriftscores-march1

I fell in love with this double-breasted blazer the very second I saw it on the rack. The four buttons start just under the bust for a gorgeous, cinched waist look. I’m just trying to decide on the perfect bottoms for it. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $9.99

Vintage Louis Feraud dress

thriftscores-march2

This dress represents everything I love about vintage, but have always been afraid to try. I love the pattern, the overlapping bodice, the buttons, all of it. And get this: It was made in West Germany — which no longer exists. I can’t wait to wear it! Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $3.50

Vintage Alain Toussaint denim dress & Calvin Klein belt

thriftscores-march3

I was a little wary about this dress, but once I tried it on, I had to have it. It is relatively heavy, so I’ll have to wear it on a cool day, and the elastic waist requires a belt. This thick Calvin Klein belt was the perfect addition, though I already have a couple of others that would work too. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $12.99 (dress) and $2.99 (belt)

Vintage Jon Roberts romper

In recent weeks, I’ve been looking at a lot of pinup images, and this romper feels perfect for a pinup photo shoot, complete with bold red lips and a fabulous retro hair style. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $6.99

Ana striped maxi dress

thriftscores-march5

Aside from all my vintage goodies, I found a couple of items that will be heavy in my wardrobe rotation this spring and summer, and this dress is one of them. In fact, I’ve already worn it. The fabric is so soft, it feels like I’m wearing pajamas. It’s a Petite XL, so it’s a little shorter than your typical maxi dress, but I actually like the length. Found at: Goodwill for $2.97

One-sleeve slouch dress

thriftscores-march14

This is the other dress that I know will get a lot of wear. It has one shoulder and slouch pockets, and get this: It’s a medium. I originally picked it up with the intention to sell it, but it actually fit me beautifully :) Found at: Goodwill for $2.97

Striped lace top

I always have my eye out for stripes as I’m combing thrift store racks, and I loved the funky off-center placement of the lace on this one. Found at: Goodwill for $4.94

Candies high-waisted skirt

thriftscores-march7

Another thing I always look for while thrifting is anything with a high waist. I have a high waist, and I know this is a silhouette that works for my body type. I love the pattern on this skirt and the fact that it flares from the waist. Found at: Goodwill for $2.47

H&M Mock Turtleneck

thriftscores-march8

I found this top at a store I will be frequenting because they have days when everything is on sale for 99 cents! What?! The overall quality of the clothes isn’t as nice as some of the other stores I’ve shopped, but they have a LOT of vintage, and the idea that I can score some of it for less than a dollar is too enticing to pass up. Found at: Metro Thrift Store for $1.99

Vintage Calvin Klein Denim Shirt

thriftscores-march9

My long-sleeved chambray top has been my best friend of late, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add a sleeveless version to my wardrobe. I can wear this in countless ways. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $2

NY & Co. High Waist Jeans

thriftscores-march10

These look a bit like mom jeans, but with the right top and the right shoes, the high-waist silhouette is super flattering. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $3.50

Tommy Hilfiger denim shorts

thriftscores-march11

I’ve been looking for a pair of denim shorts to distress for months, and while I’m not sure I want to cut these up, I do think I’m going to do something cool with fabric paint. Maybe polka dots or a hand-drawn ornate pattern. Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $2

Nine West booties

thriftscores-march12

My Salvation Army store has several glass cases in the center where they keep some of the really great quality stuff. These boots were in the case and brand new! I paid more for these than anything else, but it was totally worth it. They are gorgeous and super comfortable — a high compliment coming from someone whose feet are just complete averse to heels. Also, they look good with everything :) Found at: Salvation Army Thrift Store for $19.99

Plenty By Tracy Reese Boots

thriftscores-march13

Yet another pair of boots, equally as fabulous though not as comfortable. These leather boots originally cost at least 10 times what I paid for them, so I couldn’t pass them up. I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep them or sell them yet. Time will tell :) Found at: Goodwill for $16.91

If you want to do some online thrifting of your own, head over to the Green & Gorgeous shop, where I’ve recently listed a bunch of new items in sizes from 12-18 and L to 1X and XXL!

    I love all your thrift finds especially the houndstooth jacket, the diamond patterned skirt, black boots and the Trace Reese boots! :) Too bad we only have two thrift stores here but I love to sale shop. ;)
