cheap thrills

Although, we’ll never know what we truly save when Macklemore-ing, I certainly love thrift shopping.  Mainly because I love having unique things that other people don’t take the time to search for and also because as much as I like nice brands, I like what I like and it doesn’t need to be drenched in LV logos.

As I was inevitably lost in my Twitter timeline last week, I came across my girlfriend Kelly bragging about some awesome vintage finds.  One of the first times I hung out with Kelly, we were both staying at a mutual friends’ in New York and realized that the contents of our suitcases were practically identical, all black, bodysuits, blazers, leathers, booties, we practically matched all weekend.  So once I saw that tweet I demanded she tell me what she got so I could put it on the blog.  She’s SUPER thrifty and did not just head into some vintage boutique where everything has been found, cleaned up and re-priced.

She got this amazing fur coat for $10 and the vintage Verdi luggage for $4 at the Salvation Army.

Then at Goodwill, she picked up this AMAZING black clutch  and small cross body, both perfect for going out for $3.  And I just came across some similar cross body, tiny bags on Karmaloop and Urban Outfitters online.

Shes good right?! She picked up everything in Manchester, CT and only spent $20.  Clearly, this takes patience but if your like Kelly or myself that’s half the fun.  I seriously can’t wait to kill a couple afternoons thrifting with her!
