Well, I didn't find any $5 DVF dresses like I was hoping (stupid optimism always leaving me with failure and sadness!), but I would call the trip a solid success.
I'm trying out a new life motto called, "Don't buy shit you won't wear," so my haul is about half the size of the truckloads I used to direct out of the thrift store and into my closet (where they remain). But here it is:
--Ann Taylor Loft denim skirt
--Stretch black mini from The Limited
--Two vintage scarves
--Bronze heels by Michael Kors
My grand total? About $20. Didn't I tell you that thrift stores are worth the work and questionable smells?
The shoes, which I had been eyeing for many moons at their real life price of $120, were brand new with tags and only $4.50! I'm stoked to wear them now with layered slips and later with tights and sweater dresses and dramatic coats. Perhaps another forest photoshoot is in order?
