Salvation Army Haul

This weekend I did something a little different…I went thrifting on a weekend. I typically go during the week, on a day off or on my lunch break, so I can avoid massive crowds. But I was pleasantly surprised that the Salvation Army was practically empty. Well, not empty, there were about a dozen people. I normally visit the Salv {46th St. between 10th and 11th} on Wednesday when most clothing is 50 percent off, but on this Saturday visit, all blue ticket items were half off.

I didn’t have to deal with a crowd and I walked away with great items. Check out my finds: tons of color and a brand spankin’ new pair of BCBG pants {originally $188 for less than 10 bucks!}.

I love that the store now has a small rack designated for vintage finds.

{i fell hard for this frock but upon closer inspection it was stained}

{i can rock these strappy wedges right now with tights or a bare leg once it’s warmer. $7.99}

{i didn’t get these Lela Rose for Payless pumps but i loved the feminine bow detail and bold hue. $7.99}

{my prayers have been answered and my big feet are shrinking but I couldn’t fit these suede Michael Kors peep toes. $7.99}

{i was drawn to this shirt for whatever reason but it looked better on the hanger so I didn’t get it}

{surprisingly, i don’t really have any animal print in my closet but this skirt changed that. $4.99}

{ruffles make me happy. that is all. $1.99}

{red ruffles make me even happier. $4.99}

The major score of the thrift trip was a pair of super wide leg trousers. When I pulled them off the rack, I didn’t even pay attention to the label but I realized they were BCBG and the original tag was still on.

{once upon a time they were $188 but i snagged them for $7.99 plus 50 percent off. $4 for a pair of $188 pants!}

Unfortunately they don’t fit me, but one of you can buy them when I open the “Shop My Closet” feature on the blog next week. I have tons of awesome thrifted and vintage finds that are just collecting dust, so why not share the fashionable love?

    • Thanks. I already have the BCBG pants, Sam Edelman shoes, Calvin Klein trench and a few other goodies 🙂

  1. I love what you got! I too am thinking of doing the same thing, I find so many amazing deals while thrifting that don’t fit me, but are too good to pass up on!!

    • I know, right? I realized I have so much amazing stuff and it’s just sitting in my closet. The shop will be open next week.

    • As much as I love color and animal print, I didn’t have any in my closet. My new skirt changed all of that. Roooar 🙂

  2. I went to this location last Thursday after work (my first trip to a thrift store) and there were about 5 other people there. I had such high hope because of all the fab finds you have posted here, but sadly I didn’t find a single thing =(

    • Aww, so sorry to hear that but definitely try again. Thrift shopping can be hit or miss. It takes time to find the perfect location and patience to go through the racks. I know you’ll have better luck next time 🙂

  3. I love shopping at the salvation army and at thift stores. the only problem that i had is at the thrift store that i went to, the shoes werent seperated by sizes, just by color

  7. I have found some good deals at the bcbg outlets and final cut.  I know you love to thirt and that find is excellent.  I just got myself a bcbgeneration pair in kaki in the same style for 19 which make your find even better (maxazria is pricier my pair retailed at 49.00).  In the spirit of gushing, I once scored an angora tied batwig sweater for 4.50 at an outlet before they closed and that was regular bcbgmaxazria and the retail price 235 score!
