Thrift Store Challenge | Part Two


We had so much fun doing the thrift store challenge, I’m already planning on heading out again with some other friends to see how well they score at the store. Here’s the last round from the first challenge, Allie’s winning first place again (in my mind), with mine being a look I was considering purchasing and squirreling away for a day when I find myself with child. (No hints, just good planning.) I think Kyle’s picks make a perfect day to evening look that can easily transition from on the job (photography session) to out for drinks with friends.

    Ah! How fun! I do this with my friends too sometimes…it’s a blast to see just what you can piece together with cheap thrift finds. I recently found an amazing pair of brown leather ankle boots with this attached wool stocking material that came up like socks around your ankles–for $1.49! I live for those finds.

  9. totally great looks! adore the blouse/skirt combo that allie found! gotta say- i’m really into these thrift store challenge posts! it’s cool to see what you find in the moment, instead of later when you’ve had more time to think about it :)

  10. I love your thrift store challenge! You should definitely make a regular feature out of it :)
    Oh and the thrift store you went to seems to be great – I went to one last week and they wanted $15 for a skirt !?!
    I miss ‘cheap’ thrift stores ;)

  11. What wonderful finds. I miss thrift stores in America! I am glad that you are enjoying them and milking them for all they are worth!

    This looks like so much fun!
    We don’t really have thrift stories in England except for London (and they whack the prices up), which makes me sad!
    Love this post.
    Hope you’ve had a great Monday :)

  19. alex says:

    Kyle’s look for $17.96?! That’s just insane.

  20. Kyle says:

    So when are we doing this again? If you would’ve came with me on wed it would have been my best outfit yet! I found so many amazing things, and that magic mouse actually works (I think I would find a way to work it into my outfit just to prove what a great value it was).
