It's back! Thrift Style Thursday is back! Have you missed it as much as I have? Are you interested in seeing everyone else's thrift finds or maybe even joining us? Read all the way to the bottom for a link-up to other TST participants and a way to add your own link to our little blog hop! There's no specific theme this week, as we ease back into things, so feel free to show off whatever thrifty goodness you like. I thought I'd just share with you some of my newest acquisitions.
I didn't actually thrift this awesome little dress with a Doctor Who print. No, this one came from Andrea, of Little Did You Know. She found it at her local thrift shop, posted a pic on Instagram (which may or may not have caused me to drool on my phone a bit - I'm not telling), and was kind enough to go back the next day and get it for me! Isn't she the bestest? It was way too short, but I've already refashioned and worn it - just need to get pics taken so I can post more details. And that sweet polka dot dress actually went home with a friend of mine a couple clothes swaps ago, but she decided she didn't like it and brought it back to the last swap just for me. A little short and tight on the hips, so there may be some refashioning in its future too.
Speaking of the most recent clothes swap, that's been about all the "shopping" I've had time for lately (let's not even talk about the lack of blogging...eesh!), but I did manage to find lots of goodies there! For example, this cozy purple pullover that will be perfect next winter, as well as a crazy jungle print tiered skirt, a lace tank top, and a gored floral skirt for refashioning.
I'm on the fence about this lace/knit/sheer cardigan. Granny-chic or just granny? One of the sleeves has a dropped stitch in the lace pattern, but I'm pretty confident I can repair it.
This sheer silk top is really cool, but I'm not sure how flattering it is. I'll probably wear it a time or two as is before I decide if I want it to stay that way or not.
This chambray shirt is perfectly wearable as is, but not so much for the shaggy tulle skirt. I have plans to turn into the perfect party dress by pulling it up over the bust and adding some sort of straps (currently just pinned to my dress form in the second photo).
I also acquired some wardrobe staples, like a simple black cardigan, a black tee, two tank tops in pink and blue, and two pairs of jeans. The tanks and jeans also came from the same friend who gave me the polka dot dress above.
The swap also yielded a couple jackets whose destiny is as yet unknown. The yellow and black houndstooth wool was too good to pass up though, and the second one had me at polka dot lining. Those shoulder pads though!
In the accessory department, I found a nice paisley scarf with beautiful autumnal colors and a hint of gold sparkle.
Even some jewelry came home with me, like these dainty little knuckle rings...
...and this cute glass pendant, which only needed its dated ribbon choker swapped out for a long chain.
