{bangin' bargains} Thrifty



  Monday, December 10, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
This past weekend I went on a blogging date with Lydia, Amber, Christine and Tiffany! We went to lunch at my favorite restaurant, The Chowder Pot, then took some outfit photos (which you'll see soon,) and finally did a bit of thrifting!

First up we went to Coco's on the Green where there are tons of great designer pieces! They were having a 20% off everything sale so I was hoping to find something.  I made my way around the store and found a bunch of great pieces, though none were in my size. Then I saw a hint of burgundy velvet peeking out at me and picked it out because those are two of my favorite things!  It just so happens that it was the matching blazer for my Elie Tahari velvet pants from last year!!  It was my size and was only $38, but was marked down to $30 because of the sale. Later, I found out it was called the Alena and retailed for $478, so quite the score if I do say so myself!

Next we went to Sarah's, a thrift store with everything from plates and old video games to clothes and accessories! In there I found an adorable Santa wall hanging for $2 and a huge men's sweater that was $6, but on sale for $1. Needless to say I snatched both of them up!

A pretty successful trip. Below are some photos of the items! (I'm planning on wearing the blazer this week, so expect at least one photo, if not a full outfit post)

  8. I wish I had more thrift shops/consignment stores/vintage stores near my neighborhood. But your wonderful finds make me want to hunt for one, and disregard the distance (and the gas cost...yikes!). Lovely post :)

  13. I love that pieces that you snatched up during your thrifting adventures! The sweater is my favorite, mainly because I can never have enough sweaters in the Winter. I can never find items as cheap as yours! Jealous.
