We've talked about some tactics for looking great at a low cost in some previous articles (click here and here to see), and thrifting was one of my (favorite) suggestions. It's not only good for the environment (reuse, recycle, ya know), but it can save you some serious money on seriously good items.
Here are 4 of my favorite thrifting finds! (To see descriptions of each outfit, read the text below).
1. Skirt - Etro. Typical brand retail $400 - $2,000. I paid $13 . . . I'm not sure that the shop owner knew this skirt's value.
2. Sweater - John Smedley. Typical brand retail $250. I paid $5. Again, I don't know that the shop owner knew the worth of this 100% merino wool sweater.
3. Dress - Express. Typical brand retail value is about $40. I paid $9.99 at Uptown Cheapskate, my favorite thrift shop from when I lived in Salt Lake City. (Side note - the bag was $1.60 at Charming Charlie).
4. Skirt - The Loft. Typical brand retail around $50. I paid $7 at Uptown Cheapskate. (Seriously, check that place out if you live in the SLC area)! It's a super cute springy skirt. Also, this bag was literally $1 at Charming Charlie's semi annual sale.
