The Joys of Thrift Store Treasures

Happy first Sunday in May!  Today I want to share the joys of recent thrift store treasures!

I have written often about Goodwill San Antonio stores and how fabulous they are and to day is more thrift-treasure-proof!

Plus, it gives me great joy to know how much it is helping our community when I shop there.

I love this outfit and I put it together from two Goodwill locations….found the wonderful light sweater from Chaps at Kohls in one trip.

Then in another trip I found the leather tote with my initial on it…both pieces light new…and less than $5.

I added my own Talbot’s jeggings, Chico’s white jacket, and Naturalizer lilac ballet flats (link below) to bring the look together…and yes, it gives me joy and creates a huge smile!

Treasure hunting at great thrift stores is much fun for me and especially when I discover something I will wear often.

Thank you to everyone who gave me your thoughts on the phrase “affordable fashion” on Friday.

It was so interesting to read all of your opinions.  I am very much in the consideration of “cost-per-wear.”  

That is why I have so many Eileen Fisher pieces….I wear them over and over and over again and they are constructed to be sustainable.

I pay close attention to the pieces I go to the most and then evaluate why…so that I understand what my preferences really are.

When I want to have more fun with fashion, I go to Goodwill for that fun…it promotes sustainability and provides enjoyment for something I really love…fashion! 

If you want to step out of your comfort zone and try some quirky styles, then thrift is the way to go! 

THE TREASURES I WAS REALLY SEEKING

Grandchildren!  I often see them more during the summer and I was looking for toys and books to prepare.  I am never disappointed.

I always find treasures I know they will love…in addition to a great stash of books, I came home with a new Paw Patrol full size jeep and I know two little ones who will love it…cost to me was $12!

This was one of my more successful trips to a few local Goodwills in my area.  I came away with perfect items for the kids, plus a fun new look for me.

SCORE!

ADDITIONAL JOY AND DIFFERENT TREASURES

I am able to wear this new top so confidently because of the The Super Power Short by Honeylove.  They have excellent, comfortable, slimming products.

Honeylove claims to be the world’s most innovative shapewear…and they just might be!!

The Joys of Thrift Shopping

I confess, I have been a bit bored with so many neutral shoes in my closet that I wanted to mix it up and bit.

These VIVIENNE Flats are fun, beautiful, and my feet love the comfort…this was a good choice for me. 

Now, if you like this look I put together today…you can do something similar with this pieces:

Sure they are not treasures in a thrift shop…but if you love them they are still treasures!

I hope you will be here tomorrow morning for something new!  And I will want to know if you like the idea…so stop by…and make sure today you…………….

KEEP SMILING!!
