There’s nothing better (in my opinion) than getting really nice pieces of clothing for such a little price. I was never too fawned of shopping at thrift stores because I was always so worried about what people would think if I was wearing a t-shirt or a pair of pants that only cost me 5.00$. But as I grow older and see how expensive some pieces of clothing can be, I take advantage of the fact that thrift shops even exist at all. And the important thing isn’t the amount you spend but rather how you style the piece(s) of clothing. I don’t go thrifting often seeing as we don’t have that many in Montreal, but when I do I make sure to grab as many valuable pieces as possible. Here are the items I got while thrifting a little while ago, and will most likely do a part 2 of more thrift shop finds in the near future:
Although the material of this top is very uncomfortable, the gold shimmer it has makes this top super cute and easy to dress up. I love the fact that I have the choice of dressing up a t-shirt (which is usually a bit difficult). Tucked in to a pair of pants with a gold accented belt would be my choice of a dressier outfit, and I kept it casual in this picture by tying it in the front and throwing on a pair of comfy leggings.
I was actually pretty lucky to have found this Naked & Famous light wash, denim button-down at Village des Valeurs because, as I researched the value of this particular top, it goes for 150$ US on their website. So I really scored with this one, and plus it fits oversized which is my favourite kind of fit. I have other denim button-downs but not like this one, it almost has the faintest shade of purple (which is impossible to tell on the picture but hey).
This turtle neck is such a staple for any season, but especially for fall. I would love to know what brand it is but unfortunately it doesn’t have a single tag inside. Besides that, the colour is so beautiful because it’s a very dark burnt orange but also has the slightest shade of brown so it appears darker in person, which contrasts my skin tone very well. Another thing I like about this turtleneck is that the neck portion is very long, which lets me play around with the way I want it to sit on my neck (all scrunched up or folded over like I did here).
I am just over the moon about these pants; I’ve never seen any pant with stripes this thin so I find them quite unique and fun. If I had to change something about them, I would lengthen them just one more inch, but other than that, they’re really comfortable as well. I’m very obsessed with high-waisted anything, so the fact that these pants are high- waisted made me purchase them that much more. I would probably wear a white sleeveless button-down and tie the front into a knot, and chuck on a pair of white sneakers like I had on in this picture, for a cute spring/summer look.
And lastly, I purchased these faux suede cropped pants, which are the coolest things ever. I can’t wait to style these when the weather warms up a bit because for right now it’s still a little too chilly for my ankles to be that exposed (mtl problems). They’re also high-waisted which just makes my life that much better and easier. As for styling them, I will probably wear a pointed-toe heel since they’re cropped and have a more chic material to them.
As I mentioned in the beginning I will most likely make a part two of my thrift shop finds, just to give myself an excuse to go thrifting again hehe.
Until next time xxx
