I love watching thrifted videos on YouTube whether its fashion or home decor. I really enjoy YouTubers such as HouseofAqua who shows her amazing home decor finds and the gurus of thrifting, The Fashion Citizen. I first discovered The Fashion Citizen and while their hauls revolve around fashion, they’ve incorporated their home decor thrift finds as well. HouseofAqua has a mish mosh similar to The Fashion Citizen, but her style is more so towards home decor.
Depending on location there are better thrift options. Like the west coast has Savers. Here in the tri-state I see my thrifting options as limited, but in watching YouTube videos, knowing my style, and trying to get the most bang for my buck, I’ve found some great finds.
First up I wanted to share two tops. The first was my actual first amazing thrift find, a J. Crew polk a dot button-up. The second is three toned sweater from Talbots. The J. Crew button-up is one of my absolute favs. I love that I can dress it up and down. I’ve style it with boyfriend jeans and even with a navy suit. It’s become one of my favorite items in my closet. The three tone sweater is a new favorite and since it’s a XL I just wear it oversized. It works with jeans, leggings. I just love how cozy the sweater is and I can’t wait to find more ways to style it as it gets colder.
Next up are a pair of booties that I absolutely love. My grandmother actually found these for me, yes brand new. When I’m unsure of what shoes to throw on, these work with so many outfits. With a pair of skinny jeans and the sweater that I showed above, that’s an outfit right there. At first I neglected these, but with Fall in full swing and Winter around the corner, they’ve become a fav.
Lastly is this briefcase that my grandmother found for me as well and it’s amazing. I’ve had it for nearly a year and I wish I would’ve had something like this in college. When I’m on the go it easily fits my lap top, planner, notebook, and whatever else I throw in there. It’s so spacious and so classic.
I would love to go thrifting more, but in my area there’s not a lot of great thrifting options. For what I have thrifted I’m very pleased. Check out my previous thrift hauls below as well as links to similar styled items that I’ve featured below. Enjoy!
