Thrifting 101


Hey guys, I hope you had a great weekend. Mines was very lax, I went out and enjoyed the weather. It wasn't a stay in the house type of weekend for me. I actually went to the mall at some point too and got 2 pairs of pants from H&M and a pair of leggings from Forever 21. Let me know if you would like to see them. They were pretty basic so I didn't feel a picture was needed. However, I don't call myself a "Budgetnista" for nothing. The pants from H&M were only $12.50 each! & the leggings from Forever 21 were $12.80. 

This brings me to my "Greatest find" lol. Not really, But it is this denim JCrew jacket I purchased at the thrift store for $9.99 !! I'm so excited because I've been wanting a denim jacket so bad! They've been sold out in Old Navy, Macy's, H&M and Forever 21. I was almost about to buy one from American Eagle Outfitters for $50.00 Sunday! But my mind kept telling me to wait until I check thrift stores again. Back home, I came across a vintage Denim jacket at a thrift store and put it back (God knows why) and that had been haunting me ever since lol Now that can finally be put to rest because I found a great one! & its my size, Small! 

A Woman's J Crew Denim Jacket retails from  $295 - $95. I got a great deal!

  20. If there's one thing I must admit, it's that I am not a thrifter. I'm kind of intimidated by the idea of it and feel as if I don't know enough to do it well! This breakdown was so necessary for girls like me! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  23. You americans i love that art for thrifting that you have it sounds almost like an intricate hobby. Over here in the UK we say what "you bought that in a charity shop?" Charity has a lot of negative connotations that you can not afford first hand clothes when really you can get some cute vintage and one-of-a-kind items. Yep londoners are quite snobby when it comes to "thrifting"...but I would love to do it...one day!

    Nice blog..
