Thrifty Living

I can't even tell you how much I love Thrift Town. Last week I took advantage of the 99 cent sweater sale and then Monday I lost the better part of the day there for Martin Luther King Day 30% off sale.

Here are some of my scores.
Army green sweater vest - 99 cents
Garfield and Marks tweed jacket - $4
Xhilaration navy blue sweater - 99 cents
Vintage fur lined magenta wool coat - Herbert Bass International - $9 (needs new buttons)
Cable knit Gap sweater - 99 Cents
Baggy vintage house sweater with unidentified embroidered medallion. 99 Cents
Retro sequin sweater - when I tried this one N*Snyc magically started playing - just for a moment. 99 Cents.
My outfit under each outwear garment is:
  • Wet Seal Skinny Jean - purchased ages ago at Willow and Rags in Arcata, Ca. for about $10
  • Mossimo boots - $30, purchased before going on 365 Thrift project (no new clothes, shoes or housewares for a year, vintage, used and handmade good are ok)
  • Banana Republic button up shirt with tie - $5 from Crossroads
  • Blue knit hat - 99 cents at Thrift Town
It was a good couple weeks for thrifting. I also picked up two fabulous new dresses, which I'll post soon. 

And I'd like to leave with with this new video from She and Him which debuted on Design Sponge today!
