Thrifted Thursday

Hello! Ill be featuring finds that I snatch up at Thrift stores.  I have two thrift stores within 5 minutes from work, I love going on my lunch hour!  This week Ill be featuring a few items that I'm going to change up a bit and when I have the after pictures Ill post those as well. 

The melon color of this skirt was my favorite color in 1994.  The length and color needs to be updated.  I'm planning on dying it navy blue and taking about 6 inches off the bottom. I payed around $3 for the skirt when its all said and done It should only cost $5 to update it. And some time to shorten it.

I love the tie and stripes.  I don't particularly like the length of the sleeves.  I'm going adjust them to a cap sleeve length.  I paid $1.99 for this top.

If you haven't gone to your local thrift store I highly suggest you check it out! I have a savers, goodwill and salvation army within 15 minutes from my home.  Think of it as a way to help others and increase your wardrobe without spending much money!
Until next time, have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. These are great finds! I can't wait to see the finished products. It's really creative how you can look at a piece of clothing and know exactly what you want to do to change it and make it better.
