Outfit for Less

Today I’m wearing a patterned olive green ¾-sleeved shirt from Target, a pair of black corduroy pants from Ann Taylor Loft, and a pair of black Faded Glory flats. Each item was purchased at a thrift store and I spent a grand total of $8 on the entire outfit. These items are used but not worn looking. I’m definitely not the belle of the ball, but I’m far from frumpy and some might even admit I have a little style. :)

If you didn’t already know this about me, I’m a fan of thrift stores. I don’t find as much there as I used to (maybe because I think their prices are often a little too steep for my taste), but I still enjoy ducking in to browse every so often. Now that I have my own place, I typically frequent the housewares sections more often than the clothing and shoe sections, but when I have the time or inclination I enjoy poking around any section that suits my fancy.

When I look around my house and through my wardrobe, I’m thankful I can find treasures for less and that I’m content buying used when it fits my needs.

Do any of you enjoy thrift shop scavenging?

Correction: you're the QUEEN of thrift stores!

I do enjoy thrift stores, although I don't go nearly as much now as I did in college (which probably makes sense considering the whole professional image thing). Plus, I live far away from any decent thrift store. Every year, maybe once, I love to go find something. I'm hoping to do that soon!

Jim loves to go to Good Will and Arc so you and Jeremy will have to start planning another trip out here. We will go on a shopping tour of the stores in the Denver area where there are lots of selections to choose from.

I liked the thrift stores in Ohio and Indy where I was going to school. I still relish the Polk stereo speakers the woman next door to where I worked sold me for $2 simply because I brought her coffee every so often. Those were at least $200 speakers. Still use 'em. Golden.
