Yesterday was valentines day and I had 3 valentines. They were Nik of Mezzo Fashionisto, Cid of Chunky Curlz and my bestest friend Britney so, I'm very happy about that. :-)
For valentines day me and Britney went thrifting and had mexican food! Yumo! Today's thrifting trip was fruitful in some ways and not in others. We went to the Village Discount located at 2032 N. Milwaukee Av. in Chicago. Today the colors blue, yellow, and pink were half off or 3 for a dollar. I say that my trip a success because I got a Guess denim jacket for $10.00, a Eddie Bauer plaid shirt for half off which made it $0.90, and a pair of leather oxfords for $3.00. Britney also showed me her vintage Christian Dior coat she found a few weeks ago at a thrift store which was a treat; it is in great condition! Our guess is that it was left in the dry cleaners and never picked up so they gave it away.
Anyways while I found some great finds today, the thrift store was huge and very unorganized. There were things everywhere. This place even had a "plus size section" but nothing in it was plus sized. There were hardly any dresses and most of everything there was plain. I have heard some good reviews about this village discount so, maybe this was a off day?
If any of you are wondering why I have been thrifting a lot lately it's because I haven't been coming across a ton of money and the money I have been getting I want to make stretch. Therefore, I'm getting back into thrifting and trying to mix old things with new things. This is also a great way to still be a shopaholic but, on a budget. You can see other thrifted finds and check on my thrifting tips here. Here is what I wore to thrift. This is a good thrifting out fit because if you take off the cardigan you can just slip what ever you want over it because it's just leggings and a t-shirt. I also I love my I heart Norwegian wood leggings. They are a custom fit and get a thumbs up for being well made and comfortable!
