Well I went thrift store shopping on Friday. Nothing desinger, I found a pair of 'normal jeans' (not distressed), a slate blue hoodie and this cord blazer. I plan to go back sometime this week and hopefully I'll find some interesting stuff. Besides I'm a budget.

Well, I went charity shop-shopping y/day after splurging at the Billion Dollar Babes sale - my goal was to find an outfit for under 10.

I found two. A black oversized sheath top (it's like size 22) that I'm gonna wear as a dress - kinda like the Olsens Miss Davenporte designs. That was 4.75

Then I found a green shantung silk top and a pair of old Levi's - the top was 2, the jeans were 3.75. Would be a great gigging outift me thinks!

Just last week I visited a favourite thrift shop of mine. Every single time I visit I find designer items! Too much for me to even buy at once.

So last week some of the designer items I got include:

- A Valentino Tie - use it as a belt
- 5 Calvin Klein tops (each unique in their own beautiful way)
- A green and white lace Versace top
- A baby blue classic logo'd Lacoste tank top
- A black silky Dior makeup bag
- A black Chanel Chance cosmetics case with a pink logo'd interior

But my best finds are definately my no-namers!

Hi guys. Like many of you I have the thirft store sickness. In the last month I've gone twice and both times I've gotten some awsome things:

- a vintage gucci clutch ($6)
- a perfectly tailored, silk lined, grey pinstripe blazer (made in paris) $4
- a few loose t-shirts perfect for wearing with dark skinny jeans and flats (both for $6)
- three button down shirts for work $10

I actually squealed when I found the clutch. Also today as I was going through racks of clothes this girl walks by clutching the most gorgeous georgette summer dress I have ever seen. It was one of those seventies type things with the bow tie shoulder straps and the perfect cinched waste with the calf length skirt. When she saw my face she was smirking and I cursed her for getting there before me.

those are resale shops with jacked prices, not thrift stores. savers and value village are good ones in houston and austin. i've found some great stuff at both.

Just posted this in the men's leather jacket thread, but I guess it is just as fitting here.

Last weekend, I went to Wasteland in SF, and picked up this Rick Owens Leather jacket in perfect condition for 85 dollars! Probably the greatest find of all time.


I RULE!
