My latest round of thrifting was inspired by American Apparel and their overpriced cable knit pullovers. I spent some time on their site the other day, trying to exchange a dress for something else I liked, but the only things I saw were incredibly overpriced or out of stock. Frustrated by $70 pullovers and 'out of stock' signs on the only colors I wanted, I opted to ask for a refund instead. With all that extra money in the bank, I decided to take that inspiration to the thrift store. I was on a mission to find an affordable cable knit pullover.
Who knew I was about to find so much more than just that! It was on the first rack I went to at Goodwill, along with a white Lacoste cardigan. Then I found that J. Crew gingham button up, and the chambray button up tank (that's layered underneath the pullover in the first photograph). The chambray blouse is great because it's sleeveless: no more worrying about bulky sleeves underneath my sweaters.
I also lucked out and found a couple other button ups, too. My favorite of those is a men's plaid, wool shirt, perfect for the days when I want to look like I borrowed from the boyfriend. In the accessories aisle, I found a beautiful navy Dooney & Bourke satchel and a YSL brown leather belt!
Needless to say, it was a lucky day of thrifting.
