I have just about managed a whole year of consistently blogging about some of my thrift store finds. There were a few missed weeks, but for the most part I have stuck to it. I never expected to be devoting a section of my blog to thrift style, and I never even realized how many things I actually owned that were from second hand sources. I have plenty more to show you in the next year, and even some that aren’t skirts, if you can believe that. I also have a few pairs of pants that have been thrifted, that I DO wear. (I got a very nice blog comment last week, and I was asked if I ever wore pants, which I do, I just haven’t blogged about any of them. I guess it is fine time I should.) So, there will be a Thursday Thrift post about pants in the not too distant future, but for this month, I am talking dresses, it is Dressember after all!
Now for today’s dress, you wouldn’t actually consider it a thrift store find, I got it at Marshall’s about a month ago, but it was a definite bargain compared to regular price! NOT having to pay full price is the main reason I thrift shop, and finding something at Marshall’s makes me save money, so it counts for today’s Thursday Thrift post. I also added these Doc Marten shoes, thrifted from ebay, and this warm cardigan from the Goodwill to make my thrift inspired outfit complete. I didn’t really need the cardigan or the tights since it was a warm 67* while I was out taking pictures, but, even though, this outfit was my choice for this season’s style of winter white – which is one of the current trends I would wear – and all of this for less then the price of one brand new dress.
Dress – Monteau (Marshall’s) // Sweater – Emma James (thrifted) // Shoes – Doc Marten (ebay) // Skirt – Amy’s Closet (thrifted) // Necklace – made by me
(I do currently have an ever growing, new dress, wishlist on modcloth.com. With all of the money I have saved thrift shopping this year, I am long over due for a wardrobe splurge!)
How about you, do any of you thrifters shop at discount department stores like Marshall’s, or TJ Maxx? Marshall’s is my favorite one!
