Hey Macklemore, Can We Go Thrift Shopping?

Top-Yumi Kim- Thrifted / White Jeans- Gap Outlet {Similar Here} / Sandals / Handbag-Sold Out {Similar Here} 
 Necklace- J.Crew- Sold out- {Here on Ebay} / Bracelets- Lia Sophia 
  Last week I decided to go and do something I haven't done since I was a kid: Thrift shopping!  Feeling a little inspired by Macklemore and looking for a come up, It was flippin' awesome! I was pretty successful when I scored this amazing Yumi Kim silky top {above} for $2.32 {originally $128} and a J.Crew Collection pencil skirt for $3.25 {originally $250; coming soon to the blog}! I walked out of there with two great pieces and I spent less than $7! Both items pre-loved and in mint condition!
I took my time going through the racks and looked at each piece one by one (kind of how I shop in Marshalls). It was a little daunting but I was mentally prepared and I was happy with what I found! Have you gone thrift shopping? Any good finds?

  4. AWESOME thrift finds girl!!! That's amazing!!! I've been thrifting so much furniture for the new house recently, and haven't had the time to sort through the racks of clothes YET, but I am so looking forward to doing so soon. I've found some awesome home goods deals so I'm hoping to have the same luck with clothes :) Anyway, you look really fabulous and beautiful and I love that bubble necklace! <3 xoxox Danielle @ www.fortheloveofleopard.com

    1. Thank you! Wait until you see my J.Crew skirt, you will really be proud!! When I was decorating my house my wardrobe took a back seat for sure, but soon enough the house will be done and back to the racks you go! I can't wait to see your finished closet girl! Thanks for your sweet comments! ox

  6. Are. you. kidding!!! I cannot believe you got that top for $2.32!! And I have to say I love your clever intro paragraph with all the thrift shop lyrics weaved in there and carefully edited. Nicely done! Plus, your whole outfit is awesome and I want to wear the whole thing so I just pinned it so I don't forget it. :) I just clicked on your sandals and I love that they come in grey too. SO CUTE.

  7. I've gone to thrift stores before, but I've never left with anything. There's always been some sort of reason why I haven't committed, but I think part of it is having the right mindset.

    It sounds like you did VERY well!!

    Loving this look by the way - you look great in the brights!

  11. Love the contrast between the dark top and the white jeans. And those accessories are the perfect complements. I need to go thrift shopping more often! Great deals! ~Cynthia | My Rose Colored Shades

  14. You got really nice pieces at your thrifting experience. Too bad I don't know any thrift shops around my place, it would be nice to shop pre-loved beautiful pieces at a fraction of the price. You paired the floral top to perfection. Looking gorgeous Marianne!
