The following 4 posts are pictures from my bargain hunt yesterday! Some are T.J. Maxx actually, but a bunch are from the thrift shop Plato's Closet that is full of designer clothing. I couldn't believe how unworn and new it all was! By the way, the total of all these items was only $103!!!!

Irregular Choice Brand new and $8

sequin embellished in butterfly design. Looks better in person, kinda hard to photagraph

I once found an Yves Saint Laurent coat at a thrift store...I had it re-lined and it's fabulous!

Any store recommendations?
Anyone know of good thrift stores in the Los Angeles area? I know that there's a forum for city shopping, but I thought you guys may be more of an expert on these stores. I know everyone talks about Jet Reg on La Brea Ave. and the $1 sale on Sundays. Anything else worth checking into? Just recently got into thrift stores since you can find pieces that hardly anyone else have, rather than have a logo stamped across your shirt or pants...

oh my....today I went to goodwill and value village

at value village all I could find was a cute cute oversized nautical navy striped top for $2

but at goodwill,

new frye boots - $15 whiskey coloured
new flats - $2 colour like a mouse stam
whiskey coloured belt - 50 cents!
80s type top, hard to explain but v. cute - $3
red to the knee buttoned dress in a material that makes is so cute for an open long sweater - $3
50s small polkadot double breasted jacket/top - $3




doesn't it depress you when you spend $30-some dollars on multiple great finds and then look at your $500 designer blazer.

hahhah oh well I love all my clothes equally


so hard to explain but all I can say is I am so happy right now with my finds, especially the cowboy boots b.c they were such a good deal!
