It's true - I've been striking Goodwill gold the past couple visits to my local Goodwill stores. When visiting in Maine, I'd hit the Goodwills in the area and always come away with spectacular finds. I found pieces by brands like Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Patagonia, and Clarks. Not so much luck down here in the south. I feel like Goodwills up north are far better than those in the south. However, recently I have found some great finds! I'm not usually a "haul" blogger, but I couldn't resist sharing these!
I've found a few lovely blouses! An orange one! After all the fabulous feedback from my Orange-ish post, I decided I needed to get myself an orange shirt. I came across this orange, polka-dot blouse yesterday and snatched it up! Just being orange it was perfect enough, but then throw in some polka-dots?... It's perfect. There's no tag, so I'm not sure the brand, but the gold buttons have an anchor icon raised on them - so I'm just going to assume it's a nice shirt. I also found a cheetah meets cow kind of blouse - so I grabbed it. And then a black and white polka-dot blouse. Sure, I already have a few polka-dotted blouses, but none where the polka-dots grow. It was a no-brainer.
Then I found a gorgeous pastel yellow, vintage Escada pencil skirt. I'll probably end up hemming it to take off a couple inches - it's perfect. I love it! I also came across a lace skirt - yeah, it's the one that Target had this past fall. I wanted one in the Fall, but I was doing 30 for 30, so I couldn't buy it and by the time the challenge was over, they were all sold out. The coloring in this photo is weird. The yellow is a really pretty yellow (I promise!) and the lace skirt is more of a cream color - not white.
This is a petites top, so it appears cropped on me. Cropped is in, so I snagged it. I think it might be from the 80's (assuming from the shoulder pads, bright color, and the pattern) And the original tags are still on - it just looks 80's - or 90's? Actually, I'm pretty sure I've seen this shirt on Lisa Turtle.
I feel like over-sized clutches are all the rave as of lately. The purse section is usually one of the first places I check when going thrifting. I saw this clutch laying in the middle of the purse rack and immediately knew it was coming home with me. It's a gorgeous red and orange crocodile print from Forever 21 - and it still had the tags, so it's never been used!
I thought I'd share a photo of all the tags of the pieces that had them. I'm definitely not a vintage expert, so I really know nothing about these. Perhaps these items aren't anything special, but I wanted to share them anyway. If you know any these brands let me know!
Also, I know I've been slightly MIA as of lately. Nothings wrong, just been busy! We had a relaxed weekend that involved yummy food and basketball, Frannycakes came to visit, and we had a car issue pop up - so that's what I've been up to.
