Thrift Store Style: Try a Pop of Orange!

A Boho-Dyed '90s Dress Refashion
8 Thrifting Tips & Tricks For Serious Scavengers

As I round out my second month back on the blog, I have to say I’m feeling better than ever about it. 🙂 I never feel quite as “me” as when I’m actively blogging.

All that to say, Thanks for reading it. 🙂

While I love refashioning, I also love scouring thrift stores, antique malls, yard sales, and even auctions for unique and/or vintage threads.

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!

Last month, I was all about layers.

This month, I was all about orange! Orange is one of my favorite colors, and it’s not just for Halloween, kids!

Here are my favorite outfits from this month!

My New Favorite $1 T-shirt

Wolfin’ amazing, eh?

I found this amazing T-shirt in the boy’s section (never overlook it, friends) and upon wearing it felt transformed & empowered! I paired with a $1 thrifted pair of orange pants, as well as a $1 thrifted duster, my sweet Dr. Martens, and a lovely Nana bag!

Isn’t it sweet?

I wore my new tee to work, and got loads of compliments on it. Apparently, if you wish to earn the respect and admiration of your colleagues, you should sport a tee with your chosen spirit animal!

Vintage Mr. Boots Dress

A few years ago, a coworker gifted me an amazing vintage haul from her grandmother.

Of all those amazing vintage frocks, this one is my favorite.

I mean…🔥

I styled it with a vintage scarf (that used to be my grandmother’s), some leopard print wedge booties, and yet another Nana bag (this one non-thrifted)!

Mr. Boots Label
Isn’t that just an amazing label?

Can you tell I’m a little obsessed with these bags?

$1 Union-Made Vintage Trench Coat

It’s hard to feel glum on a gross rainy day when you have a bright coat like this!

Chasing the rainy day blahs away!

And just look at this:

I always try to buy vintage clothing if it has a union label, as these pieces are just so well made! It’s also nice to buy something that was made right here in the US, rather than China or Bangladesh.

$1 Turtleneck Dress & a Vintage Brooch

I really think I might try to make the #BringingBroochesBack hashtag happen, you guys. Because I just loooove them.

So much vintage accessory goodness happening right here!

I rocked my basic black turtleneck dress with a faux fur vest gifted to me from my friend, Marcia, along with my $3 thrifted Coach Willis Bag, A $25 pair of cowboy boots I bought back in 2007, a $1 vintage thrifted head scarf, and of course this gorgeous brooch I snagged for $12 at an antique mall.

Isn’t she lovely?

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!

Happy Thrifting, and I’ll see you on Instagram!
