What I Wore; What I Found!

Let me say this: I am SO GLAD to be back in Richmond! I guess I forgot just how amazing my favorite thrift stores are. I not only finally found things I've been searching for forever, but also a bunch of neat stuff for the shop and for me :)

First off, here's what I wore:

Faux fur coat, Salvation Army; Lacoste Sweater, Goodwill Outlet; Grey T, Dollar Tree; Jeans, Goodwill; Justin Boots, eBay; Key necklace, made by me from estate sale key and thread

Oh, and um...the look on my face? Courtesy of the 30 degree weather! Ugh. It was miserable-cold and very windy today.

But I totally forgot about the weather when I found these awesome items:

The. Perfect. Computer. Chair. (Can you tell I'm excited!!!!??), Love of Jesus ($25)

I know this baby was a little pricey (for me!), but once I sat in it, I couldn't let it go. I've been using a dining room chair as a desk chair and this has been a long time coming. It's buttery leather, so soft and comfy. Speaking of comfy...

Minnetonka Moccasins!!! Goodwill Outlet ($2.50)

At first, I just found one of these-discarded in a random Goodwill Outlet bin. I picked it up and went to look for the other one when this really nice Spanish guy stopped me and dug out the missing shoe for me! Sometimes people are good :) I can't remember if I've mentioned it on here, but I have wanted a pair of these super-comfy mocs for a long time. I honestly could wear these 24 hours a day, even at night! Like a little piece of heaven for my feet.

1960s Carpetbags of America Purse, Goodwill Outlet ($2)

I am so in love with this bag!!! It wasn't even in the purse bins, either- it was sitting in the misc. bins with random stuff. AKA: someone found this bag and then let it go somehow, and now it's mine :) It's my favorite colors- green and blue- and is so unique. I have it hanging over my desk for something pretty to look at while I'm doing blog stuff.

So, yeah. I found a bunch of other cool things, but I think I'll spread them out throughout the week. Have a great Sunday!



  1. What great finds. Love the chair, score! Isn't it nice to thrift in a different place once in awhile. It seems like I find all sorts of treasures! Can't wait to see what else you found.

  2. i love the chair and the Justins, i'm a huge boot person and Justins are so comfy! =)
