Pretty In Plaid

January 26, 2016

Hi guys! Apologies for the lack of posts again, but I’m still working on getting some kinks worked out with the site…oh the joys of technology! Things should be running smoothly soon, hopefully!

Thrifting is one of my favorite pastimes. I learned from my Mom- we used to go thrifting/antiquing (and can’t forget about estate sales) all the time when I was younger, and it’s still one of our favorite things to do now! The best part about thrifting is the thrill of the find. So many times I’ve almost left thrift stores feeling dejected, only to find something amazing around the corner. Last time, that something amazing happened to be this little coat! I love the bold plaid and how it really pops with an all black outfit. Plus, it’s pretty lightweight and perfect for San Diego “winters” 😉

The best part?

It was $5!

Yep…. only 5 bucks for this cutie!

      Thanks Taylor! I know– it can be discouraging sometimes! Makes it so rewarding when you do find something 🙂

  • $5!? Seriously!! That’s ridiculously amazing! What a great find! I really need to start thrift shopping… I’ve always liked the idea of it but I’m always SO overwhelmed when I finally make it to a thrift store. How do you weed through everything and find the gems?! It’s gotta be a super power that I was just not bestowed…

      Thanks Melissa! I know right?! I was SO excited 🙂 It’s definitely a challenge. The key is patience! You have to take your time, even when when you’re thinking there’s no way there’s going to be anything good! I try and pick up items based on color/texture, and I have pretty good luck!
