If you have been following me for a while, you probably remember my Renovation Wednesday series. I showed you different ways to add more character to your home without breaking the bank, and now I really want to use that concept… but with outfits instead! So I am starting a new series called Thrifty Thursday!
The title name is definitely not original, but I think it sums everything up perfectly. I first got this idea when I was scrolling through Instagram. I stumbled upon a beautiful fashion blogger, and fell in LOVE with her shoes. I immediately clicked on the link attached to her outfit, and almost choked on my coffee. Paying triple digits on a pair of shoes isn’t something I’m comfortable with. A few weeks later, I was walking through a store and found the exact same shoes for less than half the price! I decided then and there that I wanted to show others that they can look fashionable and pulled together without going into debt. All of the things I will be showing you in this series will have been bought at a thrift store or on a clearance rack. I will also do my very best to link similar items for you to check out if you are interested!
To kick start the first Thifty Thursday, I wanted to talk to you about a crossbody bag I found at Goodwill for $6!
I have been on a search for a simple, tan “leather” crossbody bag for a very long time. Everywhere I went had cute ones, but not exactly what I was looking for. In my desperation, I wandered into Goodwill, and literally walked right into this bag. I was in denial that it could be that easy so I rummaged through all of the other bags. I actually found several name brand purses still in good condition! Steve Madden, Tom Ford, Coach… None of them peaked my interest like the first bag though. So I walked back, and checked the price. When I saw it was only $6, I ran to the checkout stand.
Have you ever found the perfect bag at a thrift store? ♡
