June thrift

Summer is here at last, and there are lots of warm weather
possibilities waiting at the thrift shop!

The thrift shop I go to most often is currently in a scramble of reorganization.
Some sections are temporary roped off, while racks are being re-arranged,
but most of the store is functioning, and open.

I spent most of my visit in the dress section.

I love the bold color of this semi fitted shift
which has a very versatile basic shape 

This dress has a 70's esque print and a beachy, summer color scheme

Such a yummy coral color, but what a wrinkly mess!
Linen is a great summer option, but this is probably about what this dress
would look like after a couple of hours on me.  I would go for a linen blend.

Here's some boho goodness in a comfy but shapely maxi dress,
thanks to the wide smocked waist

Not for me, but so cute-love the glittery back straps

This halter dress screams fun in the sun, and would also make a cute swim suit cover-up

Open lace design, with a nude lining, in a pretty, flattering cut

I found some nice possibilities in the tops section, too,
like this ruffled sleeve blouse with a tie neck

Some more ruffles, on a cool semi-sheer blue paisley print

Bell sleeves and peek-a-boo lace from the
clearance rack of the Target up the street, I think

Love this sheer shirt with gold metallic polka dots

Preppy pink plaid (say that three times!)

and nautically inspired stripes

These are the two things I bought:

A pink and black color block top.
(I tried to picture it washed and ironed)
It has a 50's bowling shirt feeling to me,
I can see it paired with lots of things, and it's soft Rayon, so easy to layer. 

Also, this royal blue, long draped shawl collar topper.
It's a jacket style I wouldn't usually choose,
 so buying it at a thrift shop is a good opportunity for me to play with this proportion.

Hope all of your thrifting experiences are good ones,
if you enjoy this type of shopping!

  1. Oh wow that last blue piece is amazing and the white ruffle top without sleeves I would have bought. My last thrift included a Celine leather vintage belt and a black Leith sweater.
