I’ve been mentioning my awesome, epic thrift shopping trip for the past two weeks and promising a haul video. Well, here she is!

You’ve already seen how I styled a few of the pieces {like yesterday’s Old Navy skirt and last week’s sheer black maxi from Zara}. But here are the other items I found during my recent trip to the Salvation Army, including a statement making LBD, chunky fall sweaters and vintage gems for less than $10.

What’s In Store: JCPenney Just Might Surprise You

About a week ago I dipped in to JCPenney at the Manhattan Mall. I was killing time in between meetings and didn’t expect to find too much. But um, I was majorly surprised. I found a few pieces and couldn’t resist trying them on. When I Instagrammed the houndstooth dress above, you guys all commented on how amazed you were at this being at JCP. It was affordable and super chic.
Besides having a really amazing sale going on, I had no trouble finding work appropriate wear, casual gear and even some cocktail attire.

Remember when I Instagrammed this dress last year? It was Free People {a brand I love} and majorly discounted at TJ Maxx. I knew I’d get tons of wear out of the fitted, printed dress. A dress like this can easily be saucy with a high heel or a bit more casual. Now that the temps are dipping again, I’m back to rocking the Free People dress. And this time around, I decided to keep the frock pretty casual thanks to a few add-ons like accessories and a cable knit top.
