Thrifty Shopping Spree!!!

So, yesterday was the first day that we were able to actually shop after the 30 for 30 challenge and I made a B-Line to my favorite thrift stores. What I found inside was amazing.
Where do I begin?

Okay, so I am at a thrift store and my idea was to run in and out... well Keesha texted me to see what I was doing and like the great friend and faithful thrifter that she is she came to meet me. When she got there I had about 16 items of clothing in my hands and I was breathing erratically... I realized that I had not shopped in over 30 days... Soooo not like me! Well, this our favorite thrift store because you a grocery bag of clothing for $5. Yeah... so the idea is to get as much stuff in the bag as you can. Well just so you know... 16 items are NOT going to fit in one bag. So we decided to get two bags and split the price... well as my luck would have it I lost my debit card in the store!!! (scary)
I did find it right after Keesha had already paid for my bag. Geez... she is such a swell friend. After we left the first store I did make one more stop and get another bag for only $3. In total I got
  • 3 pairs of pants
  • 2 blazers
  • 7 skirts
  • 3 sweaters
  • 7 shirts/blouses
  • 6 belts
  • 1 pair of shoes
  • and I got 1 my husband a neck tie (so he would not feel left out)
In TOTAL: I got 30 items for $13 ($10 of which was gifted)

I still have not stopped smiling. I actually had to buy more hangers in order to fit them into the closet. Amazing!!!

These are some of the highlights from my shopping spree.

long camel colored cardigan

Long Pencil skirts in Green and Hot Pink
One with red leather belt and other with black Patent leather

These shoes actually did not go into the bag but they were only $1. Oh, How I love thrifting

This is my favorite find of the day. My cell phone camera sucks but its like hyper color. I love it!
It is SO long, but cant you see this being a great cocktail dress?

So I was looking into this skirt to see the size and what do I see? The name Christian Dior! This cranberry red skirt is amazing.

How perfect is a pink flannel shirt? Priceless

I am in Love with this amazing orange blazer. Its wrapped with a silver belt.

Move over TjMaxx and Marshall's... Thrifting is where its at... can I get an AMEN?

Amen! These finds are amazing. This is one of the best thrifting hauls I've seen in blogland. I can't wait for my time off these next two weeks because I plan on thrifting all over the city.

Jealous! The thrift places in Portland seem to be more expensive - probably because it is trendy to wear thirfted clothes here. Bah humbug. I want everything you got for $13!

Also, if you all want to join the No Repeat Challenge, do it! After the 30, I needed something that will keep me trying new things.
