Scores of the Day: My $23 Goodwill Haul

 I stopped into Goodwill today on a whim and it one of those good haul days. They had a lot of cute stuff they received from Target stores in this time and luckily it was in my size!   In my previous post I droned on about the awesomeness of thrifting, so I won't bore you with more of that I will just get down to what I got and what I look for when I am thrifting.

This is a very basic black dress, probably from the 90s or so, but its classic shape and color make it timeless. I had been looking for an LBD like this that is not incredibly short  and work appropriate and got lucky enough to find it for $4 at the Goodwill. Score!

All summer long I have wanted an orange dress. I tried on probably 10 or more and liked none of them. This dress is from Target and still had its tags on it. I plan on wearing this into fall with a blazer or cardigan and tights.

Brand New for $6

This is the back of the dress above. I love the exposed black zipper it gives the dress a very modern feel and adds interest to a simple dress.

This is a fairly sheer leopard print top with a tied neck. This is perfect for me to pair with skirts and dress pants for the office and also to put with skinny jeans for a night out. I love the flowy fit. It looks great tucked or untucked.

Brand new with tags on for $4 at Goodwill

This is a basic khaki wrap skirt, that was another brand new piece they got in from Target. There isn't really too much to say about this, for $3 it was a steal for a wardrobe staple.

This shirt is a bit more navy than it looks in this picture. It has pretty flutter sleeves and I love the embellishments on it. It looks great tucked into the skirt above. Well worth the $4 I paid for it :)

This is the first thing I picked up today. I'm having a love affair with clutches lately and this color makes me super happy. A real bargain at $2

Grand total for all 6 items: $23
I call that a success!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
