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!
