thrifty chic (again)

cardigan/blouse and flats: thrifted, jeans: old navy, necklace: loft, tank: h&m

i know, i know, i am a broken record, 
but i cannot tell you how much i enjoy thrift shopping. 
if you are a girl (or guy) on a strict budget, 
but don't mind searching for quality, fashionable items, 
thrift and consignment shopping is for you! 

i purchased the above leith brand top for twelve dollars at between friends 
consignment and gifts, located in bellevue.
these little gold flats are one of my favorite thrifted finds (j crew)
from mia bella on roosevelt. 

consignment shopping requires a great deal of patience,
as you will sift through numerous items you may or may not like.
and perhaps you will have to visit the shop a second,
or even third time before finding something to bring home.
however, your patience will pay off.
thrift and bargain hunting is a great way to expand your closet,
stick to your budget, and restyle previously owned clothing
in your own way.

outfit cost:
leith top: $12
h&m tank: $5
loft necklace: $5.97
j crew flats: $18
jeans: $25

TOTAL: $65.97
^^^ not bad for an entire outfit ^^^
