A gold butterfly necklace.

A vintage fuchsia skirt.

Brown slouchy boots IN MY SIZE.


Thrifting Tip:
If you LOVE something ( I loved the skirt) and it is a great price ($3) but it is TOO big (or too long..) have it altered...and Ta-DA! If you have sewing skills I am jealous! I would be making much bolder purchases if I knew how to do my own alterations.

Love the skirt!! What great purchases...

those boots are every thrifter's dream. amazing!!! great finds!

Anne said...

Hi Lindsay. I think I had a necklace similar to that when I was a teenager. It's so cute. A woman of your talent would have no problem in altering that skirt. It's as easy as pie. There are so many blogs out there too that show you how to refashion your wardrobe. This one is pretty good.

I love all your thrifting finds. The skirt is so cute. I've been on a hunt for a long red skirt that would fit me.

Mindy said...

Soooooo, what size are those boots? (wink, wink)
Yeah, I have clodhopper feet, there's no way I could cram into them, I'm sure.

Nice finds little lady.

Great finds! I totally LOVE those boots! I need to find myself a pair one of these days! And I agree-- if you like it, it's cheap, and you can alter it, by all means, thrift it! :)

Erica Louise said...

Your skirt is an amazing colour. Big fan of your boots, I have a scary-large collection of tan boots - bit of an obsession!

Get yourself a sewing machine, seriously, you'll be suprised how easy it is to sew, I've been sewing less than a year, and its opened up so many doors in thrift purchasing!

Alexa said...

Am in love with that skirt. Great color!

Andrea @ Strawberry Chic said...

I have a similar pair of brown boots, which I purchased about 2 yrs ago & I paid WAY to much for them...they are Steve Maddens but are already looking very worn :( Would have loved to have found a thrifted pair like you!

Tonia @ TheGunnySack.com said...

Great boots!! Even though I know how to sew a little I still worry about buying something that I have to alter!

Mongs said...
