Best Thrift/Consignment Finds of 2012

2013 is almost here, and I thought it would be a good idea to somehow sum up this year. I did it in yesterday’s post by reviewing my best (In my opinion) refashions. Today I am going to share my favorite/best thrift finds of the past year!

And don’t forget to CLICK on the image to see the full post :)

10. $ 15 Rock Band Drums – Brand New in box from Target Overstock/Salvation Army Warehouse distric, and spotted by my husband! I do feel like I need to inspire more male thrifters in this world, that’s why #10 is going to Sam :)

Outfit of the Day: Dashing through the Snow

Last Saturday our family had an early Christmas celebration, opening presents, a great dinner, taking family photos by the tree after too many glasses of champagne… The whole 9 yards!

I also got Sam to take a few shots of me, and give or take, my husband is a great photographer! So here we go, my outfit of the day!

Scarf

 

Run

 

Boots: Corso Como $6 – Steeple People

Dress: Anthropologie – $15 – Clothes Mentor

Scarf: Thirfted back in my NYC days

Cardigan: Mossimo $7

So here you have it, my very inexpensive, but fun Christmas outfit! Thrifting will never be  substituted by shopping in my world!

Happy Monday!

Thrifting for Treasure: My Latest Steeple People Thrift Haul

Steeple People will probably be my favorite, number one, go to store when it comes to a thrifting quickie! It’s only 10 minutes away from my house (WALKING!), the prices are incredibly reasonable, and there is always a great chance of scoring something vintage! They also carry fabrics, which is what I was looking for!

I ended up walking away with a bag full of stuff, which included Corso Como boots, a vintage dress, and 3 pieces of fabric, one of which has already been transformed into something amazing!

Here are the fabrics:

50 cents of wool

2012-12-02 16.51.55

 

$3 of black and navy blue fabrics ($1.50 each, though the navy blue one has more yards!)

2012-12-03 22.33.59

 

A $6 pair of Corso Como black leather boots! I wasn’t going to get them, but after looking the brand up on my phone (another reason to have a smart phone when thrifting!) and seeing how much those would’ve cost me at Nordstrom, I couldn’t put them down!

And finally a $2 100% silk Anne Crimmins for Umi Collections dress (it will be featured in one of my upcoming refashion posts), and I am already putting together outfits featuring this dress in my head :)
