My Lucky Finds

Posted on: April 11, 2013

This was a very successful trip to Goodwill this week.  They had 50% off the weekly color as normal but also added 1/2 off all long sleeve tops and outerwear.   I headed to the long sleeve tops and found quite a few goodies… I spent my budget for the next few weeks so am holding some items back to post for next week…

Linking Up with Thrifter Thursday


This vest never even made it out to the floor it was found hanging on a rack that was heading out to the racks.  What more could a woman want than crochet and a lace peplum.  – $3.99


This great pink LOFT cardigan was perfect for my petite height and a good addition as I have a lot of sweaters that are too long that I am going to be replacing…  $2.5o

IMG_3208   This cropped black sweater has no tag and I have wanted a black one for a while now, so snatched it up for $2.50

This skirt is a LOFT and was blue tagged and 50% off at $2.50.  I am in desperate need of replacing solid casual skirts due to the weight loss and my love of patterned tops.  IMG_3206

Grey Seersucker blazer by Liz Claiborne for $4.99 I had two seersucker blazers that no longer fit due to weight loss, have them in a pile of things to take to the tailor once I reach goal weight.  In the meantime this one will do nicely!


                                                                         LOFT skirt that really caught my eye because a few weeks ago I purchased the matching sweater to this.-$2.50  I will be featuring this tomorrow, so come check it out!  


This Calvin Klein dress was the first item I put in my cart  and only one of the two things I paid full price for(jacket was the other).  Just $6.99

Dear Readers, I really love thrifting and love that I can find so  many LOFT items or other favorite brands for such a low price point.  What is so great is that these items are all in new condition…  Any favorites among my finds for the week? What ‘s on your fashion wish list to get for Spring and Summer?  As always I appreciate and welcome all comments! 

 Come back tomorrow for the final look of the Movie Inspiration Week, Vertigo…  

Gratitude:   I am grateful that I have been doing so well with my food choices thanks to posting what I plan to eat the day before.  I am grateful for the wonderful weather and taking walks with my son.  I am grateful that I am back to myself after the 3 week illness, working out hard and sleep well.  I am grateful to be spending the day with my friend and her daughter and having a photo shoot for a budding almost 7 year old..

                                                                                                                          Food Journal

That’s the fun of shopping at thrift stores, you never know what you will find. The polka dot skirt is awesome! Looking forward to seeing you style that one 🙂 Heather

Hi Tracey, I love that vest. I found one very similar, but without the peplum. I’m looking forward to seeing how you style it. I’m back on track now too, so that’s good. Where in VA do you live? My husband is considering job offers in VA and DC, so we may be moving this Summer! Since he retired from the Army in 2006 we have lived in FL, and we are getting antsy to go somewhere else. Having 4 seasons again would be divine.

I live in Virginia Beach which is 4 hrs from DC. I love the DC area but not the traffic… if you move there I will plan a trip and have lunch one day!!!

Definitely, my treat!!

I am crazy for that skirt! Love it!

You have lots of great finds! My favorites are the last three. A Calvin Klein dress for $7? What a bargain!

Awesome finds! Love having a day like that at the thrift store!

It isn’t just about getting great clothes at bargain pricing… any die hard thrifter gets a natural high from the thrill of the hunt!

I love the pink cardigan and the Loft circle skirt. You did very well. It’s interesting that you found so many Loft items in nearly new condition!

That was my thought as well, especially since I love that label!
