Secondhand Rose

Anyone who's ever met me knows I have a penchant for thrift shopping! Born out of both financial necessity and an obsession for vintage clothes, I now pride myself on being able to find that diamond in the rough and see its potential. Today I wanted to show you some of my recent finds from the local Goodwill. Each of these pieces was well under $10, so how can you go wrong? I've also paired them with some of the new necklaces currently available in my Etsy shoppe.

I can hardly wait for the first sign of spring so I can wear this sweet cream-coloured eyelet dress.

And how romantic is this taupe blouse, to be teamed with skinny jeans and cowboy boots?

Perhaps my favorite recent 'score' is this pale blue 1970s polyester number from Joseph Magnin! I just love the pink flowers at the bottom and wore it out to dinner on Valentine's Day.

Finally, there is the Jessica McClintock for Gunne Sax toile print skirt. It's way too snug for me, so I wear it unbuttoned with a long white slip underneath. Bargain hunters can't be too choosy. :)

What kinds of treasures have you found at the thrift store lately?


  1. I love that grey blouse! I bet it will look lovely on you.

  2. Thanks, Sharon and Lizzie! I'm lucky to have a really nice Goodwill in my neighborhood! :)
