With my reselling business I have found myself in thrift stores 1000x more than I ever used to shop them! As you guys have probably seen, most of my super cheap items have come from eBay, but now that I scour every rack in a thrift store every other day I have been finding a lot more awesome items for my own wardrobe!
Ralph Lauren Wool Cashmere Sweater [secondhand, $1] Banana Republic Scallop Shorts [new, $15] Tory Burch Red Flats [new, $140] Louis Vuitton Cross Body [secondhand, $100] Banana Republic Bangle [new, $6] Rayban Aviators [new, $90]
Outfit Total: $356
I pulled this classic Ralph Lauren wool cashmere sweater off the racks at Goodwill and knew it was going straight into my closet and would never see eBay!
GOODWILL TIP: Ask your local Goodwill if they have any special sales or dollar days on a specified day during the week!
I scored this Ralph Lauren goodness on a Thursday, when my local Goodwill has a color tag $1 sale. Most Goodwill stores tag their items with a certain color tag, and then every week is a specified tag color for 50% off that color tag for the whole week. My local Goodwill down the street will have the weekly color tags for $1 on Thursdays and you know when I show up! That was how I was able to snag this *once super expensive* sweater for practically nothing!
You might think I'm crazy for wearing a sweater in California during June but it actually gets quite chilly during the night time! Aside from being colorfully patriotic, I like this sweater + shorts combo for Independence Day because we usually head to the coast for fireworks and by the time the sunsets the temperature can really drop! It's the perfect combo from beachy day to night.
