On Thursdays We Thrift... Edition I

Look at all of those patterns!!!

Can you believe that there was once a time that I was embarrassed to actually go thrifting. Yes, that was me. I honestly couldn't understand why my mom shopped at thrift stores when I was a child. It was very weird for me because my mom would literally get a designer handbag (Dooney & Bourke) every other weekend from Mansours. I can't remember when the actual switch occurred and I began LOVING thrifting, but I'm sooo happy it did. And I'm also happy that I was taught by one of the greatest thrifters in my opinion, my mom. Flash forward a few years and one of the first things I look for (besides a Target) is a thrift store.

Unique was one of the first thrift stores that people raved about when I moved to Virginia. I went the first time and absolutely hated it. I visited a few more times and still hated it. I'm honestly in awe that Unique is moving into my top 3 thrift stores. I honestly visit every Thursday on my lunch break because on Thursdays they have 25% off. And if I feel like I wasn't able to search as thoroughly as I'd like to, I go back after work and give it another go. I actually was able to teach my friend how to thrift and she picked up a few cute pieces too. I'll try my best to update you all on my thrift finds. If you're in the Virginia area, let me know your favorite place to thrift. And check out some of the awesome things I picked up!!!
This Talbots skirt is perfect for the fall. What color top would you wear? $7.99
I knew immediately knew that this Banana Republic shirt had to come home with me!!! $6.99
I love the dual design as well as the duel texture of this shirt.

You can never go wrong with a plain black shirt, get this, it's a Target brand shirt!!! $3.99
I was sooo happy when I found this leopard print maxi skirt!!!

Another cute skirt for work, since its blue & white I need some color to make it pop.  $7.99
I love the color of this shirt, but hate how this pic makes my head look sooo swole lol!!!

I LOVE finding designer deals, that's exactly what this Michael Kors skirt was. $5.99

I can't wait to wear this vintage top with a pair of tights and combat boots. $4.99

Deciding on which clutch to choose...
She did sooo well on her first thrift trip!!!

 Again, all of the items purchased were an additional 25% off and guess what? On Veteran's day Unique is offering 50% off of everything. I. Will. Be. There.
