Thrift Style: Well, Label Me Frugal


It's a rare occurrence. But one fateful day it just may happen to you. The stars may perfectly align and you might find your way...to thrifted designer clothing.

It's true that some lucky thrifters may find their labels for less with far more ease than others. But, me? Generally, I fall into that dreaded "others" category. 

Not only do I have to luck into lovely designer wares, but I have to pray that they're in my size, a curvy XL. Today, however, was my time to shine. 



Dont' you love this creamy white shirt with ruffle detail?

 $4.50 from 2nd Ave. 
The designer?




And that lovely gray and black print skirt? That's a...




...for $6. I estimate this find alone to be worth upwards of $60. And that  Lauren shirt was likely $50 or more at retail cost.

Who scored some thrifted labels? I scored some thrifted labels!

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Shirt: $4.50
Calvin Klein Skirt: $6
Finding designer labels...in my size...at the thrift: Priceless.

WOW! That is awesome! Very cute outfit. I get excited when I buy American Eagle jeans for like $3!

Thanks, Jessie! I'm always excited for cheap fashionable finds, no matter what the label. I just get especially thrilled when I find the designer goods, because I feel like I cheated the system, ha ha.

Thanks, Serena. I've been lucking into some really nice clothes lately. I'm hoping to start finding some winter-wear soon!

I looooove that skirt, great outfit! I used to thrift for quality business casual clothes like this when I worked at the office. Now I've lost weight so it's time to hit the thrifts again for a few fun replacement pieces to keep me warm this winter. Ah, I love getting clothes for cheap at the thrifts.

Ah yes, Van. It's the best time of the year for bringing in bundles of thrift clothes guilt-free...just blame it on the need for layering!

I don't buy much clothes wise from the thrifts anymore, I don't like spending too much on clothes. I just buy t-shirts mostly. I once found a Lacoste shirt at a church sale for $2 & wore the shit out of it. Some chick stole it from me, though.

Like the skirt. :)

I hate it when people steal my clothes, lol!
