Here I am, finally with something thrifted to write about for this week’s Thursday Thrift. And guess what? Not one, but two thrifted items – one of which I just bought today. It is currently Wednesday as I write this little post up, and for those of you who don’t know, Goodwill has .99 day on Wednesdays. I thought I might drop on in and see what I could find as far as accessories go.
I am in the middle of making another dress, and I was thinking that I needed a nice, new to me belt to go with this almost finished dress. Actually, I have been thinking that I need some belts for many of my newly made dresses lately, and since I don’t really want to spend that much on items such as these, the Goodwill was a great place to look. I don’t wear belts much at all, but I really like the way they look with certain styles of dresses, and I keep thinking that since I am making these styles of dresses, a couple of belts might be a good thing to buy.
I was looking for a yellowish orange color, but when I saw this yellow one, I knew I had a dress it would go pretty well with – the last one that I made (details here).
It’s a pretty good match if you ask me. And I even found a grey one that should match a number of other dresses of mine, even including this one.
Now for this necklace. Once in a while I do browse the jewelry that I see on display in thrift stores and yard sales, and a couple of months ago while stopping by one of the annual yard sales in my area, I found this neat looking necklace. I almost didn’t buy it, but then thought why not. I am sure I could find something to wear it with. And how about that, it went well with the last dress I made also. I did wear this necklace last weekend with this dress but had a hard time getting a good picture as it was starting to get dark out, so I thought to put it on once again as I was trying on my new belt today.
What do you think? Have any of you found any jewelry treasures at a local thrift store or yard sale? Now that I think of it, my most favorite pieces of jewelry have been second hand. They are treasures for sure!
I know I am speaking of accessories, but one more thing. How about the shoes? These I wore this weekend, so they are one less to save by my September 1st deadline in the Shoeperwoman Shoe Challenge.
Thanks for reading, and let me know if you have any thrifty finds on your blog today. I’d love to stop by and check them out.
