Winter White // The Thursday Thrift

Winter White

Winter White details

Winter White 5

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.

(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!

  1. ModCloth is my favorite addiction. If you keep an eye out, you can snag some great deals! A few of my favorite dresses for “stylish surprises” I got for $15! 😉
    This look is fab! Thanks for linking up for Passion For Fashion!

    1. Oooh, I will definitely be keeping my eye out for a deal! Thank you.

  2. Do a splurge on modcloth! Yes! I Although you could always check on ebay for items as pretty as on modcloth!

    I get most of my stuff on sale at ASOS, I rarely spend over £25 on a dress.

    1. ASOS would be a great place to splurge as well, they have some great dresses – and good sale prices! I could even get a few dresses if I did that, or even ebay. Thanks! 😉

    I wish I had dresses to wear like you do – I always want to buy some but never wear them. And at this stage, it would be weird if I just started wearing dresses, no?

    Meanwhile, I never go to thrift stores for clothes but you’re making me think I should. I just don’t have the patience to dig around..

    1. If you are up for trying some dresses, you totally should! You can ease into the dress wearing! 🙂
      I don’t have a lot of patience to dig around thrift stores, really. In fact, I may be the fastest thrift store shopper of all time. I only go to the areas, and usually color schemes, of what I am interested in that day. I never hunt through everything. Actually, I am probably a really bad thrifter, lol! But I have scored some great finds.

  4. Very pretty and lovely use of White for cold weather! I have yet to buy something from modcloth but have been admiring them for ages!
    I do look around discount and outlet stores, but I’m a fan of discount boutiques (selling wholesale to the public) more.

    1. Thank you! I haven’t bought anything from Modcloth either, but I always find something that I love every time I get on their site. Ooh, I should find myself some discount boutique stores to shop; I am a fan of regular boutiques. 🙂

Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
