Well its 2016 and guess what I'm still thrifting!
More now then ever I am consciously making the effort to watch how I spend, where I spend and on what I spend it on.
I recently went through my closet and sorted through the items that I haven't worn in the last year. I filled an entire garbage bag full clothes. While I am in no rush to restock those items, I used the time to reflect on all I have, and think about what I really need.
So in my reflection, I wanted to share 3 of my past thrift items that I love.
This aztec blazer top was purchased a few years ago. The colour and cut is what really grabbed my attention. I enjoy bright coulours especially in the summer time against my warm complexion. I don't remember exactly how much I paid for this item at VV Boutique; also known as Value Village, but I know it wasn't more than $8. It is originally from H&M and I paired it with a dress, belt, and red clutch all purchased from H&M.
This lace dress it one of my all time favs. I really enjoyed the the cut and tried something new with the light colour. I usually shy away from pale coloured dresses but I really enjoy lace and was able to wear this dress multiple time pre and post baby. Again purchased from VV Boutique for $6.
The year I had my youngest daughter was the year of the wedding. I must have attended 5 weddings that year. I really enjoyed this colbalt blue dress with this Navy sequenced Blazer. I don't usually wear blazers to weddings but the wedding I attended was an evening wedding and I thought I would try a different look. I thought it worked out well and the total cost for the dress and blazer was $14. I can only imagine how much it would have costed if I purchased these items in a regular department store.
I look forward to what thrifted treats are in store for 2016.
