Goodwill Outlet Crazy Experience and Finds!

After having read blog posts and seen numerous pictures from Goodwill Outlet from one of my favorite vintage style bloggers Sammy Davis, I finally found some time to make it to a Goodwill Outlet here in Minnesota, in St. Paul to be more precise. The store is located right off of 280 and University Ave. And I was by no means prepared to what I saw. It’s basically a giant wear house, with tons and tons of stuff. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here is one for you:

In case you didn’t know here is how Goodwill Outlet works:

1. Your cart is always supposed to be against the wall.

2. Every now and then the staff does cart checks, and if you are not by your cart, they’ll dump it all out!

3. You are not allowed to touch anything while the staff is unloading boxes.

4. Bring your own bags.

5. All items are priced based on weight.

6. Have FUN!

So I grabbed a cart, put some tobramycin in my eyes and went digging 🙂 I spent about 2 hours at the outlet, going through it all, and in the end, after having paid a little under $11, I came home with all this:

1. Some accessories:

2 Pairs of Shoes

3. A couple items to refashion – the ideas are brewing in my head as I type 🙂

4. Some vintage tops:

5. And some every day clothes 🙂

Let me know which of the pieces you liked the most! And follow my blog to see how I style these finds in the nearest couple of weeks!

Fall Uniform

This is again another IFB Project, that I thought I’d do. I think this is an amazing way to see what fashion bloggers are actually wearing, and not just blogging about 😉 I wear so many different coats, that I thought it would be pointless to show them all, but I will show my fav print. The most important items that comprise my fall uniform are my boots, scarves and bags – so here you have it – BeingZhenya’s Fall Uniform!

Plus my favorite fall print of all times:

XO,

ZhenyAH!

PS. What is your fall uniform?

Thrifting for Treasure – Going for the Maxi

I did it, I thrifted to maxi skirts, which I absolutely cannot wait to wear! I also thrifted an amazing blue necklace and the cutest $3 vintage style bag!

Do you know what’s the best thing about thrifting? Striking random conversations with other shoppers.

Tuesday my friend and I went to the Salvation Army at the Warehouse District of Minneapolis and had several people there ask us what language we were speaking! (I do speak Russian to my Russian friends after all 🙂 )

Today as I was trying on a skirt at Steeple People, a lady told me I looked very cute. Steeple people doesn’t have a dressing room – so whatever you try on – you should be trying on over your clothes and in front of everyone else!

I bet you are dying to see what I got! Well, today I decided to surprise you, and put up a video, instead of pictures! So sit back and enjoy the haul!

Have a great rest of your day, wherever you are!

Love,

ZhenyaH
