thrift store finds: it's almost spring!

I've been wrapping up my spring thrift shopping, and I'm proud to say pretty much everything I've been buying has either color, pattern, or both!

This is my crowning glory, baby:

It's an Anthropologie dress for $6! I've been oooohing and aaaaaahing over this exact dress for about two years now. I've even made my own knock off version a couple of summers ago. And now it is mine, at last!! Can you tell I'm excited? An Anthropologie dress at thrift is like the holy grail of thrifting to some people. Namely, me.

This chambray dress was $1.50. And it's blue people, blue!

This shirt was $6. It's way, way too big but I'm going to take it in. The gorgeous embroidery and beading makes it worthwhile.

This Liberty of London for Target dress was $6. It's a (very shrunken) medium, which looks horrible on me. Thankfully it's only about three inches too long to be a maxi dress for my Girl, so I'll be refashioning this as well.

This top was $6. I'm not sure what brand it is, but I bought it at Lux Fashion Lounge in downtown Boise. That place was awesome! Small but they had some really cute stuff, and the owner was the one behind the counter, which I just love. Nothing beats being able to talk to the actual owner of a small business. Plus, it didn't hurt that she was amazing with my daughter and dressed in a super fun, quirky outfit. We will definitely be going back next time we're downtown!

This one was $3.95 at the Idaho Youth Ranch. I've already worn it, it's so cute with jeans!

I also bought both of these pairs of shoes, both of which will be the perfect neutral with my cute summer dresses. The shoes on the left were $4, and the Nine West shoes on the right were another $6.

So that's it so far. I'll be back in the next couple of weeks to show you my refashions! In the mean time I'll be wearing and showing off some of my finds with a few outfits.
