The Return of Thrift Score Thursday!

Welcome to the triumphant return of Thrift Score Thursday!  🙂

In my thrifting adventures, I find all sorts of things that are just perfect exactly how they are.   I think it’s time to share my favorite finds of the week with you!

The Return of Thrift Score Thursday! 2
Ooooooh!

 

You’re looking at a vintage Aigner clutch ($2) and an adorable pair of sunny yellow heels (also $2) that I’m guessing are from the 1960’s?

And here’s my most thriftastic non-refashioned outfit for the week!

I'm a deep person who feels things deeply.

Recognize the shoes?  🙂  I paired them with a little kid’s kimono I found at the Dollar-a-Pound Goodwill Clearance Center on their 1/2 off day, a thrifted LBD that I scored for $6 at a consignment shop, and some fun fuchsia leggings for a pop o color!  🙂

Whaddyathink?

Cheers!

  1. Love those shoes!! Nice score!! The first thing I do when I see a pair of thrift store shoes I like, is to look inside them. I pass if they look crusty or moldy. If the insole is in good shape (no dirty feet imprints) then I feel comfortable buying them. I wipe them really well with disinfectant wipes. Last week I found a really cute pair of 70’s vintage clogs that looked great on the outside but there was black crud inside..I’m guessing from fungusy toenails? I quickly but sadly I put them back on the rack. I wasn’t going to take a chance and I probably would have puked trying to scrape them clean!!

  2. Oh how I wish, wish, wish I could go thrifting with you! Of all the blogs I follow, yours is the one I absolutely can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with first!

  3. Love it! I have been following your blog for a while now and since I just quit my job this week (EEK!) I am looking forward to more time to get into refashions. You are my inspiration!

      • I wipe them out with rubbing alcohol. I’ve also been known to just wash them in the washing machine, on cold/gentle with an old towel or two, and then air dry them. I’ve never had a problem with any leather shoes I’ve done this too. Of course I might not if they were really spendy, but then I wouldn’t be buying them!

  4. Cute shoes. I’m always a little weirded out by thrift store shoes. How do you clean/disinfect them? I’ve never bought a pair because I can’t get past the clean thing. Suggestions?
