A couple weeks ago I started interning at a thrift shop, which is complete shopping suicide in my eyes. As a frequent thrift shopper, it’s hard not to purchase items every time I come in for work. Between employee discounts and putting items on hold, I don’t know what’s worse. I’m giving my pockets a run for there money. I’ve been thrifting for the pass couple of weeks there and a few other stores, and here’s what I managed to picked up.
Vintage Coach Messenger Bag – $10
Gold Choker Collar Necklace – $4
Printed Button Down Shirts – $6, $7, $8
Velvet Skirt – $15 Fashion Night Out T-Shirt – $1
Black Old Navy Clutch – $8
Teal Ashley Scott Coat – $7.99
Grey Forever 21 Top – $5
Brown Amalfi Dress Shoes – $8
Vintage LA Lakers Snapback – $2
Thrift Total: $81.99 Retail Total: Way more than $81.99 (lol)
Thrifting is a perfect way to save money and add original items to your wardrobe. I’m not big on brand name or specific retailers to shop at. Where ever there is a sale or a thrift store, I’m there. I believe my money was well spent. 81 dollars spent at your local retailer is probably the price of a dress or a pair of shoes.
