Hanging It Up: Saying Goodbye to Some of My Favorite Pieces

February 1, 2016

As you know, I’m an avid thrifter, which means that my closet is constantly expanding. Plus, I never throw anything away because why? Surely it’ll be back in style again and/or it’s a timeless classic that has no expiration date. I love all my pieces, but things were getting out of hand. I mean, clothes were everywhere in my room, bringing clutter to a space that should be serene and clean. So something had to give. I knew what I needed to do but it took my bestie stopping short of throwing all my clothes into garbage bags for me to finally start purging my closet. Even still it’s hard to process. This past weekend I donated several pieces to my local Salvation Army. Because parting is such sweet sorrow, I had to pause to remember some of my favorite items that I had to let go. See what they are after the jump!

Thrifted Thursday: Cozy Scarf from Sunday’s Best Thrift Apparel, Echo Park

January 22, 2015

My pals decided to take a lunchtime jaunt to Sunday’s Best Thrift Apparel in Echo Park, and man am I glad we did! This was my first time inside the shop, but I can see why it frequently makes lists for the best thrift shops in Los Angeles. Neatly separated sections, to-die-for pieces and reasonable prices make Sunday’s Best your best bet for thrifting in the quaint neighborhood.

Peeking out from a rack on top of some jackets was this darling, cozy yellow hand-knitted scarf ($2). It was love at first sight, frankly. Not only is this scarf super cute, it does a stellar job of keeping me warm. This piece also has the ability to make lively any outfit I pair with it.

While there, I also did a little window shopping. See what else captured my attention, after the jump!
