My trip home started with a day packed with thrift shopping. My sister picked me up from the airport and we headed straight out to all of our favorite spots as well as a few new ones. On the list of things to look for were vintage dresses and sweaters for fall, vintage shoes, shrunken blazers and jackets and vintage purses. I'm happy to report that I was able to check all of those things off my list!
We had a whole cart (in the south, of course, we say buggy) full of shoes before we even got to the clothing department. I found lots of 80's pumps, leather oxfords and several pairs of tall, flat boots - all of which will be showing up in the store. Hardly any were my size - bad for me, good for you.
The dress on the left was ultimately rejected - it was a little bit Twiggy meets Judy Jetson and a lot scary. The little military style coat on the right was one of my favorite finds of the day.
This furry Russian style coat was another favorite find. We couldn't wait to try it on, so we ran over to the furniture department to find a mirror. So cute!
It was only the first store and we left with a cart full of clothes, shoes and bags. And we still had several more stores to go to before the day was over. The thrifting gods were certainly with us that day!
