Welcome to the final part of my thrift haul series. I know that thrift haul’s aren’t as convenient as if I had bought new items from department stores, but I have had a blast! It’s my hope that by spreading them out in small doses, you will have had time to maybe peruse your own local stores for thrifted pieces you love to style. If you’ve managed to find trousers or dresses or tees, you’ll be able to style those new pieces with me as I show you how I pair my thrifted items.
My first piece is a bright yellow shirt. I normally avoid super bright colors, but one of the things about thrift stores is they are a relatively inexpensive way to experiment with your style and go out of your comfort zone. If you discover you don’t like it, simply donate it back!
Color is not the only way to experiment. My next piece is a style-experiment in texture. I almost never wear velvet, but I am a sucker for a V-neck tee. This shirt is a mauve-y velvet v-neck shirt I snagged from my town’s Goodwill. It’s definitely a little thick for the 110+ degree weather I’m in right now, but will be great as the temperatures start to decline a little!
Last, but certainly not least, is a ruffled shirt. I fin professional clothing can be ridiculously expensive new. So, if it’s not something that needs to be tailored perfectly (like a suit), I highly recommend buying from a thrift store. This shirt features a fun ruffle texture over the entire front, which will be dynamic under a blazer!
And that piece marks the end of my first thrift haul series. Please let me know what you thought (the good, the bad, and the ugly…well maybe not too ugly, I hope). Until next time, stay happy, healthy, and safe!
