a few favorites

A few things that I have been loving lately: pocket watches (I found this one at the thrift store for $2) and glass containers (including those meant to be candle holders!). At the moment, the sleeping cat is holding granite stones from my trip to Georgia and a bow ring from Forever 21 and the crystal container (Bleikristall from Germany) holds a vintage gold bracelet. All I need now is a chain for the pocket watch and I'm all set for fall (;

Thrift Trip - Some Heavy-Hitters

I did a little thrifting yesterday with my sisters and came back with a few pieces that I am incredibly excited about! Oscar de la Renta, Free People, Proenza Schouler for Target, J. Crew, French Connection…and to top it all off, it was student discount day (which I used, even though I am no longer an actual “student” - shh!). A little note about myself - I am an avid thrift shopper with an affinity for vintage (Proof? Dig through some old thrift posts on Hello H!). So of course as soon as I got back into town from a week long vacation spent in Georgia, I found the first excuse I could to go out and search the racks of my local Goodwill (or err, three).

So - what’s in the haul? A leopard print tee by Oscar de la Renta ($4.50), a crochet Free People dress ($5), a cream sequined dress by French Connection ($6), a gorgeous knee-length black dress from H&M ($5), a silk Proenza Schouler for Target blouse that I bought for my sister ($5), a 90s floral and polka dot dress ($5), a J. Crew tank ($5), a sheer navy collared top ($5), Madden Girl platform wedges ($5, as seen here), and two photo frames that I bought for $3 each (soon to be repainted a metallic gold!).
Also in the mix are a few pieces that I picked up before my trip, which include a Liz Claibourne silk utility blouse (I’m all about silk tops for fall!), a black & white sheer kimono-esque top that I DIY’d (originally it had a top sewn into it), a vintage pajama-wear type silk blouse that had beautiful cuff links attached to the sleeves, a vintage Dooney and Bourke purse ($10), an ostrich leather handbag ($3), and two interesting necklaces bought for $3 each. Have any great thrifted finds of your own? Leave it in the comments below!
