Goodwill Thrift Haul

Last week I took a quick {two hour} visit to the amazing Goodwill Outlet in Long Island City. Remember the outlet I frequently mention? It’s where clothing is priced at $1.69 per pound. Needless to say, I left a happy woman. I scored 26 items of clothing and two pairs of shoes (Aldo and BCBGirls) for a grand total of $17.84!

Some of my finds…

{sequin cropped top. I live!}

{skirts: lace, pinstripe and eyelet}

{BCBGirls pumps. the interesting heel is what caught my eye.}

Peep the video below to see some of the other goodies I scooped up, including what I call a chicken shirt {it’ll make sense when you watch the video}.

Unfortunately, Goodwill Outlets aren’t prevalent throughout the country, but check this Goodwill locator to see if there’s one in your area.

  1. Hey great post! I’m glad I came across it! I love reading about anything from fashion to celebrities! Speaking of which, I love those cute little heels Kristin Cavallari from “The Hills” wore on the cover of the new US Weekly. She was walking her adorable little dog named Bardot I think. Anyway, they’re selling them exclusively on JustFab.com The shoes are very inexpensive and they even have beautiful handbags to compliment them! So ladies you might want to sign up to check out their new Fall Selection!

  2. hey! you’d be proud of me. never been a thrift shopper but always give good quality donations. I had a job interview last week and I was going to roll biz casual with dark denim and a button down…then decided “hey, if we’re going for the gusto we need to do it big.” BUT all my slacks were dirty and headed to the cleaners. I’m low on funds so its been a long time since Bloomingdales, Macys and I dated, prolly can’t even walk into Marshall’s….so I said “hey, let me try this Goodwill around the corner.” First time. Walk in, it’s nice and clean despite the folks hanging around outside. I go to the pant rack, most of it is not in order by size but its some quality stuff there. Finally I find two pants and try ’em on. They fit and look good. I choose one: no wrinkles, stains, marks or tears and its dockers brand! I bring it to the counter. The cashier asks for a price check in the back, but when she gets it, she acts like she doesn’t want to sell it to me because the pants are really nice. But she has to 🙂 $6.50 for pants that would’ve run about fifty bucks elsewhere at your standard department store. I looked good on my interview, lets pray I get the job!

    Thanks Patrice and lfoad

    • Yes, the clothes are definitely worth checking out. I’ve never been able to find accessories from Goodwill. Fingers crossed that’ll change!

  4. Hey Patrice! I just recently found your blog…. I love when you do these thrift hauls! Looks like u found some cool stuff… I enjoy thrifting as well! I usually am on the prowl for clothes, scarves, vintage earrings/other jewelry, shoes, dishes, books, etc…

    As for suggestions to styling your “chicken shirt” (lol), At first it reminded me of mohair or something close to it, when I first saw it. Maybe pair it with some medium wash jeans (skinny/slim), the focus I think should be on that shirt,(the color is really bright and the texture is interesting!) you dont want anything to clash too much with it… Everything else should be low key… Like a simple bangle, small earrings (thinking gold right now) and shoes (simple, nothing that will conflict with the spotlight on your outfit’s star, the “chicken shirt”)…. Let me know if my brainstorm/ideas help!

    Also, I gotta try the Goodwill outlets, I’ve never been, u make them seem like goldmines!

    • Thanks for the “chicken shirt” suggestions. lol
      You’re definitely right, a shirt that bold should be the main focus so I’ll pair it with a simple pair of jeans and minimal accessories. I’ll be sure to post pics when I wear it!
