Well well well…I’ve almost made it through my first month back on the blog! I’ve gotta say, I didn’t realize how much I had missed it until I came back to it. Thanks for all the words of encouragement. While I can’t always respond to them, just know they’re very appreciated. 🙂
As I’ve said before, I don’t just wear refashions. I thrift a LOT. And I find a LOT of neato things that I wear as-is! I know a lot of you guys don’t sew (WHYYYYYY??????) and maybe don’t want to sew, and that’s okay. This is a judgement-free zone!
But even if you have no desire to refashion, there are SO many amazing thrifted finds to be….er…found! I thought I’d share my favorites from this month with you.
Also, if you want a larger dose of my somewhat quirky thrift store style, as well as pics of Douglas and Benson, make sure to follow me on Instagram (the pups would really appreciate it)!

My New Favorite $1 Blazer
This was actually picked up in the Boy’s section. As I put it on, I couldn’t help but think of that scene from 30 Rock:
Jack: You’re in an “adult dude” situation. You’re wearing a beautiful blazer from Rico’s Husky Boy collection.
Liz: Is that what Raggazi Robusti means?
Whatever. I thought it looked great for a day of working remotely.
Anybody remember that sweet sweet savagely thrifted Dooney bag?
An ’80s-Inspired Thrifted Ensemble
For this outfit, I paired a Blondie tee I’ve had since my freshman year of high school (I was obsessed with them then and still love them now) with a $1 double-breasted sweater jacket (I ripped out the shoulder pads), a pair of perrrrrfectly-faded black jeans, and a $3 thrifted pair of vintage Aldo shoes!
$1 Leather Vest & $1 Hooded Dress
I could not believe that vest made it to the clearance rack. How could no one else have wanted it???
Keeping it Casual
In the middle of this month, SC had a nice refreshing warm snap. Temps were in the mid-70’s, so I thrifted accordingly! You’re looking at a $1 Ralph Lauren tee, and a $1 pair of oversized lounge pants (I added a drawstring).
My Favorite Color of the Moment
This outfit features a ’70s terrycloth dress, a denim jacket I’ve had forever, a vintage headscarf, and a chunky scarf I got from Stitchfix a while back. Oh yes, and my beloved Fiestaware. 🙂
Pattern Mixing is Fun!
I am all about this one, you guys. You’re looking at a $1 vintage butterfly collar shirt, a $1 fall floral dress, and an amazing vintage owlie handbag a thoughtful coworker gifted to me a few years ago.
The boots are an old pair of Steve Maddens I’ve had for probably a decade now. I know knee boots aren’t quite on-trend right now, but I also don’t care. Wear what feels good, I say! 😛
So there you go! My favorite outfits from this month! I hope these give you a lil zap of inspiration for how you can wear your own thrift store finds! It’s so much fun to thrift oddball pieces that you’d probably never splurge for new, and incorporate them into your everyday wardrobe.
Happy Thrifting, and I’ll see you on Instagram!
