Friday August 27, 2010

I didn't hit any thrift stores but Dad and I did hit up some rummage sales. :D

I got some pretty bad ass stuff.

$3; the people who owned it added the fabric and foam on the inside. The op part isn't glued in or anything, so I'll have to do that.

What can I use this for? I bought it because it was bad ass. Plus, it was only $3. How could you not?

SO! What should I do with it?

$1; same rummage sale as the chest. 
Super cute kimono style top.
(Ignore my stupid face.)

And lastly:

$1; different rummage sale. 
It's a pretty large piece of fabric. 90x60 I believe. I'm not sure though.

Now what can I make out of this?! Come on people! I need ideas!

That's all for this bag of thriftyness.

I forgot to add this to one of the other posts, so here it is.

$1.99; Goodwill.
I seriously love this Calla Lily necklace, but if you look close they almost look like lady parts. ;D

Anywhoo, I just wanted to quick put this up here since I forgot to add it.

Another Trip

This is from a trip to surrounding cities' thrift stores.

Not sure where everything is from, but I do have some prices that I paid.

But please, do ignore the ugly faces I make.

 $3.00; St. Vincent de Paul
A blue polyester, rayon and cotton blend zip up sweatshirt. I know it looks kinda big, but it's super comfy.
Price unknown. Place unknown.
A brown argyle sweater made of acrylic and wool. I love this sweater!!

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul
It's floooooorall!!! I love floral patterns. I don't have any cute shirts/tops to wear with it, so I usually pair my skirts with t-shirts. (Even if they don't match.)

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul.
A blue floral skirt. Not sure of the materials, was no tag. Super comfy and light-weight though.

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul.
A rayon floral skirt. Super comfy.

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul
A blue rayon floral skirt with a slit up the side. Another super comfy skirt.

$2.00; St. Vincent De Paul
I know absolutely nothing about this skirt save for the fact it's green and a little stiff.

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul
I know nothing about this skirt either. No tags. Also a little stiff.

Price unkown. Place: Goodwill.
An Old Navy dress. It's sooo comfy. I love this dress.

$4.99; Goodwill.
A button up blue plaid dress with matching sash. My boobs are a tad large, but I planned on wearing a tank top underneath it anyway.

And finally:

$2.00; St. Vincent de Paul.
This was supposed to be a larger size.. well, it's not. I couldn't even get it up over my thunder thighs. So, I want to make something cute out of it that ISN'T a purse. I have about a million purses.

SO! What can I do with this skirt? What can, or should I make out of it?

That's all for this bag of thriftyness. :)

Thrifted (The Last Two Weeks)

I don't have the exact dates of some of the purchases, seeing as this is my first post. But I will try to remember or write down the dates.

The first bag of swag is from Atomic Katz vintage store. Their link: Atomic Katz

All of the items bought were $5 a piece.

A red jacket made of what I'm assuming is polyester.

 A brown, yellow and orange patterned polyester tank top.

Ignore my terribly white stomach. A skirt made out of a cotton blend, I believe. There is no tag, so I don't exactly know what it's made of.

 This is my favorite. A polyester lime green and white polka dotted sweater.

That's all for this haul of thriftyness.
