My Thrifting Outfit: Black Clouds and Brown Leather

Yesterday's thrifting outfit was kind of added onto as I went. I was wearing a newly thrifted black shirt that, while flattering, was maybe a little too low-cut for comfort. My second stop at Love of Jesus fixed that with a new lightweight scarf artfully tied for more coverage. The little purse I started with was not quite big enough, so I picked up a great vintage brown leather bag at Goodwill Outlet.

 I was also originally wearing closed-toed shoes, but they weren't very comfy. I searched my favorite thrifts and found no perfect leather sandals, so I made a trip to Dollar Tree and got more pairs of my comfy dollar ones. (I'll need them for our upcoming beach vacation!) After a few quick changes, I had my new outfit:

Shirt, Goodwill; Scarf, Love of Jesus; Jeans, Goodwill; Vintage Leather Bag, Goodwill Outlet; Flip Flops, Dollar Tree; Bangles, Midlothian Antiques and West End Antiques

This was my first try taking my outfit picture with my new camera and tripod. I got one of those tripods that can bend any which way or stand up straight, and it's really easy to use! I chose an empty parking lot near Dollar Tree where the stores haven't opened yet. I like this area since it looks mountainous and different from other areas around Richmond.

I found some pretty great things thrifting yesterday :) I'm excited to show you all!



  1. I love seeing all the things you thrift. I've recently come across some awesome finds too. I need to take pics of them all for a show and tell post:)

  2. Thanks, Emily! You should definitely do a show and tell post- I love seeing the awesome things other people thrift!

  3. I love your outfit story! It is so great when it comes together along the way. You look so perfectly put together, I never would've guessed!! Especially love the scarf and bag :)

  4. You always find the best bags! This one is no exception. And I loved the story of how your outfit came together...I do the same kind of switching/adding through out the day and always wondered if everyone else did it and just kept quiet about it.


I love your comments! You all are the best!
