Thrifty Thursday Fall Fashion!

Fall is more than football games, pumpkin spice lattes and leaves changing. Although I love all three of those things, just like most, my favorite thing about fall is the fashion. I love vests, knee high boots and feeling a little chilly.

On Sunday, I went to Value Discount Outlet in Akron, Ohio and they were having the best deals! Just like Goodwill, Value Discount Outlet has various color tags attached to the clothing, which lets the store’s staff know when the clothing came into the store. …This also allows for fun things like having certain color tags be a certain price that day!

For example, this Sunday was any green-tagged item was only $1, yellow-tagged items were 50% off and I also received 20% off because I had my student ID! It was a really good thrifting day.

Lets see what I bought!

Right as I walked into Value Discount Outlet (VDO), this yellow vest popped out at me from the 1000s of racks of clothing! My absolute favorite color is yellow.

The vest had a small patch that was sewn on it, but I knew it wouldn’t be an issue to remove it with a seam ripper! This vest is honestly perfect for Kent State football games. I paired the vest with one of my favorite Kent State shirts!

I then found this gorgeous pink shirt! This shirt can totally be work with jeans, as pictured or I can definitely wear this to my sorority’s chapter meetings, where we have to dress up. I love to thrift things that can work in my wardrobe for many occasions.

I was a little worried that this shirt was a little too much of a summer color, but then I just said “ehh, I’ll make up my own rules!” and bought it anyways. ๐Ÿ™‚ This shirt only cost me $8, and it was brand new with tags on it! It was originally around $35!

This next outfit features two purchases! I bought both of these times for only $1!

I can definitely see this sweater becoming a staple in my wardrobe! I cannot wait to wear it with my black vest and pearls, which will make for a super fall outfit!

I love fall so much! I cannot wait for later October when it comes time for Halloween outfit shopping. Keep your eyes out for upcoming Halloween thrifting adventures! Happy fall!

This week’s Thrifty Thursday is super fall themed! My sister Payton, and two of my best friends Amanda and Dani (yes we have ย the same name lol) are here this weekend! We have been traveling all around, we have been all over Kent and the areas around! We just came back from a pumpkin patch and it was super adorable! Both of the outfits I’m showing in this Thrifty Thursday are perfect fall outfits!

This week I went to Value Discount Outlet in Akron, Ohio. This store has anything and everything you could ever want! I was in the store with my friend Marie (who was featured last week!) for 2 and a half hours!

The first item that I found is the black puffy vest from Old Navy! I have the same vest from last year, but in coral. Iย bought the scarf for $45.00 and this year I bought the black vest for $3.00!!! I saved $42 by buying this from VDO!

And next, I bought the adorable patterned shirt! I bought the shirt for $4! I really like this shirt’s material. It is a a nylon/spandex-y material! It is super comfortable.

I hope you like the last picture I posted! Haha!

I also bought one more item, but I want to save it for you for when it gets a little chillier out!

And now, the moment a lot of you have been waiting for! The winner of my first GIVEAWAY isย Abbie Burgess!!! Congratulations! What did Abbie win? She won:

Abbie will get to choose the colors that she wants for her monogrammed hat. I am so excited about my first giveaway!

Thrifty Thursday featuring my first GIVEAWAY!

This week I decided I would check out the Goodwill in Kent, Ohio! I brought along my friend Marie. We had a ton of fun looking though all of the clothes! You can even see Marie found a cute new necklace (haha, she didn’t actually buy the Burger King necklace).

I was on a hunt for cute cardigans and pullovers! The leaves have changed in Kent, Ohio and in the matter of only 3 weeks, I guarantee you it will feel like winter here (yes I have cried about this ๐Ÿ™ )! I also wanted to find more things to monogram and I convinced Marie that she needed to buy something to get monogrammed with me!

We were searching for about 20 minutes before I found anything. This Goodwill is not the biggest, but, I always say if you search, you will find something! And, I succeeded! YAY! First thing I found was the animal print cardigan. I am super excited about this cardigan! it fit me so well and it was the most comfortable thing ever…and it is adorable! It looks better on then it does on a hanger!

Then while searching again I found this adorable black and white cardigan. In this picture it kind of looks like a bathrobe, but I promise it doesn’t in person! In person it makes me look so little! it is synched at the waist and the material is so soft. It is going to be so warm for these cold days we are having.

Then, Marie found this purple pullover for me! I love it! I want to monogram this, but I’m not sure what color to monogram it with? What color do you all think? HELP ME! (I am kind of thinking white?) And finally, this zip-up gray sweater! I do not ever want to take this gray sweater off. Honestly, it is the most comfortable sweater I have ever owned. In the picture it was hard to see the detail on it! I honestly do not even know if I want to monogram this just because it looks like a nicer sweater.

I am dropping off the sweaters tomorrow so, let me know!

Now, it is the GIVEAWAY part! I decided to do the Giveaway now because it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I wanted to include the amazing book, “Make Mine a Double, a Mastectomy that is” by Beth Kaufman! ย photo-3
