This week, I went thrifting with my friend Marie. Her and I both scored some GREAT things!
I was on a mission this week to find a cute winter coat, that wasn’t black and a poncho/ruana. I went to Village Discount Outlet in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, and I wasn’t leaving there until I found what I was looking for!
So, first, I found this beautiful blue coat! It is a little big on me, but I am going to take it to get tailored! The color is gorgeous! At Kent State, it is SO important to have a long coat because of the snow and the wind! Did I mention I bought it for only $9?! Marie found one of the most adorable winter coats that I have ever seen.I wish the jacket fit me so I could steal it from her! Marie bought this cute winter jacket for $6.50! Yep, you read that correctly.
Next, I bought this adorable plaid shirt! I took a picture closer to the fabric, so you all could see how cute the plaid is! I am so excited to wear this under a cute shirt with a huge statement necklace! Also, I think this exact plaid is cute for the holiday season! I am thinking about wearing it under the grey poncho that I bought! The shirt only cost me $2.
Marie found the next item for me! I love cardigans! This adorable cardigan has a really cute pattern on it and then gold buttons, and it was only $4!
And finally, my grey poncho! Marie and I searched all over the store yesterday, because this is all I wanted! I am not even sure why I wanted one so bad. I just knew I wasn’t leaving until we found one that I loved!
We were looked through the coats, and didn’t see one, and then we saw cute scarves, so we were just looking through the scares and all of a sudden, Marie screamed “DANIE! I FOUND ONE!” I thought she was crazy because it just looked like one of the scarves that were hanging up, but, she was right, it was the poncho that I had been looking for!
This poncho only cost me $3.50! I did some research and I was seeing how much this would cost the full price from Coldwater Creek, and this would have cost me somewhere between $69-$90! I am so excited about how much money I was able to save, because what college girl has the money to spend $90 one item? Not this one!
Finally, I found this sweater JUST as I was checking out, and I bought it on a whim. But, let me tell you, I am so happy that I bought this sweater. I wore this sweater last night and it is the most comfortable piece of clothing that I have worn! This is sweater cost me $12. This is the most I’ve ever spent on one item, but it is okay by me! I love this sweater and it going to be one of my winter staples!
I would say that Marie and I were extremely successful this week!
I have had so many friends showing me the items that they have bought while thrifting! If you are thrifting, please share the items with me that you’re buying!
