Thrift Shopping with Nate!

Today Nate and I decided to have a romantic date at our local thrift shop. Though thrift shopping has become a popular conquest to get that vintage look, the task at hand is a lot harder than it is made out to be. Many a time I have left a thrift shop empty handed – people threw this stuff out for a reason. Or, I have run into shops that price their goods way too high for what they are worth. I am a very particular shopper – a very stubborn bargain shopper. Too picky for my own good – but today’s little adventure turned out great. Here are our spoils:

For a grand total ofโ€ฆ$7!

Immediately upon walking in the store, I spotted these shoes for Nate – classy eh? $5.

This was also my doing – probably the first time I have ever found a bow tie in a thrift shop. I always have a difficult time shopping for a simple, self-tie bow tie, thrift shop or not. $1

And finally, Nate magically found me a polaroid camera. How he did, I don’t know. But I love it. It just needs film and batteries – I can’t wait to actually start using it ๐Ÿ™‚ $1.

And that is all! A successful thrift shopping experience ๐Ÿ™‚

La Jolla Spree

La Jolla Spree

Recently I was in La Jolla, CA, and if you have ever been there, you would know that there is great shopping downtown. Saving for school being my highest priority right now, I could not go crazy with the shopping. Me being a thrifty shopper, I still found a way to come home with something! The dress is from Ross (not from downtown, but in a different area of La Jolla) and I got it for a whopping $5.99. The necklace and earring set, however, I got from a store called Georgiou in downtown. It was $22, so that was my single splurge.

If you are ever in the area, I would recommend going to Georgiou. It is a little expensive, but they were having a buy one get one half off sale when I was there. They have very classy, yet casual clothing. I spent a lot of time in Francesca’s as well, but the prices could not satisfy my thrifty nature. A close-up of the necklace and earrings will come up soon.
