Thrift Store Finds

Due to the crappy weather, I haven’t really had a chance to take some new outfit pictures, so I’m going to be posting a few old outfits over the next few days.  These are a couple of outfits I wore incorporating purchases from my most recent trip to the thrift store.

skirt, sweater- thrifted from Savers, belt- Forever 21, boots- Urban Original

This skirt hit me at a really awkward length for some reason, so I just hiked it and pinned it in the back so that I could wear it higher up on my waist.  Also, this sweater is so cozy and was less than $4!  Savers has definitely been my favorite place to stock up on sweaters this winter.

cardigan- thrifted from Savers, tee and pants- forever 21, flats- Target

Recognize those pants from yesterday?  Well I love the combination of this dark brown and the burgundy pants.  A few years ago, I never would have worn colored pants and now these have become one of my favorite pair of pants!  My next colored pants purchase will either be a green or a dark purple!  Since I’ve been home, I haven’t yet had a chance to go thrifting, but I’ll probably check out the local Goodwill and Salvo sometime after Christmas.

I’m going to see Black Swan tonight- I’m so excited!  It has been so long since I saw a movie in theaters and I’ve heard such good things about this one.  Also, one of the theaters in town has started doing this deal called ‘Value Tuesdays’ where movies are $5 all day on Tuesdays!  I definitely wanted to take advantage of the discount since movies have become so expensive these days!  What movies have you guys watched recently?
