I know I've heard this from other thrifters, but there seems to be some sort of higher power at work when it comes to finding specific items while thrifting. I always have a list of things I would love to have, but don't want to pay full price for, and I often scour thrift stores for the cheaper versions. Sometimes I find them, sometimes I don't. However, it seems like more often than not, I end up finding exactly what I've been pining over.
I've been soooo wild over sweater vests lately (don't ask me why, I have no clue), and I not only found a simple gray wool one, but also a pretty pastel patterned one. I love them both equally and I can't wait to pair them up with jeans and button up oxfords or dresses and boots!
Speaking of boots, I had also been trying to find a new (old) pair to add to my ever growing collection. I've got every sort of boot... slouchy, ankle, high heeled, flat, tan, gray, worn in, you name it (some may say I have a boot obsession)... but what I really wanted was a more refined pair..... BINGO! And at 9 bucks, how could I say no?
It's finds like these that make me so happy to be a thrifter at heart! Has anyone else been blessed by the thrifting gods lately?
