As most of you know, the hubby and I went to Seattle to visit family and while we were out and about...we managed to find ourselves right in front of a Value Village...ok that isn't entirely accurate...It was more like...we walked like 12 miles in the rain to find Value Village...and when we finally got there...we were both starving and exhausted...but I did have a blast...while not buying much, the trying on was a fix for my ever growing addiction..I do regret not getting some stuff but when you travel and thrift you gotta be carefull..so here we go!

This Value Village was two stories...and had some great stuff...including a vintage section that was NOT overpriced..as a matter of fact..cheaper than the new stuff!

This was a blazer from the GAP I ended up getting this cuz plaid is my favorite..and it's a plaid blazer...I KNOW!

Here is a special viewing of what happens when you don't bring a friend with you to thrift..and well...yeah..take a look...

I just want you to know that I love you guys..and it is important to show you things that don't work..cuz not everything is amazing at the thrift store..i.e. Exhibit A

Now...if I actually was like..I really need to find a yellow Elvis suit I would never EVER find one...well folks..Here it is..

I kinda liked the colors of this dress, but I passed, I have too many dresses I haven't worn...
IMG_3553

Now, I am regretting letting this go..but I had to be really particular...I have so many projects that I am not allowing myself to get anything I have to reconstruct until I finish the ones I have now!

It's no fur vest..which I still want by the way...but it is a faux fur collar..I got this..

Ok, so as you saw in the first few pics..this Value Village had a Vintage seciton and it was sooo cheap..like $2 cheap..and this Brady Brunch special stuck out..I pictures it with skinny jeans and stillhettos..I know...Im whacko..but I LOVED it..so I got it..and it's plaid..haha

One thing you will notice is that I tried on a lot of jackets...I was shocked to see so many..then I realized we were in SEATTLE..duh....no wonder we don't have many jackets...it's 100 degrees in Vegas! haha

Loved the color of the 80's leather jacket..passed...

  3. I haven't been thrifting since September! I cannot believe that it has been that long. I have a list of things I am looking for so I think it is time to hit the stores again. I usually find that January is an amazing time to go with everyone having just cleaned out their closets for tax deductions.

    Love the fur collar!

  9. OMG.. I am so jealous. Your Value Village is the bomb.com. The one here in Baltimore is good, but wow that store has some great finds. The one here is a bit pricey. I go on the days where it's half off.

  10. Keesha looks amazing! What a fabulous outfit. I have to go stalk her now.

    So, I had never heard of Savers or Value Village before. But last year, I went to Seattle, and my cousin took me to that Value Village!!!! I had no space in my suitcase, so I only bought two small things. But I was in heaven. It was the most amazing thrift store I have ever been to. After that I totally got why you're such a Savers girl. :)
