Thrifted Thursday: Church Lady Hats

September 12, 2013

The Salvation Army at Alamitos and Anaheim in Long Beach has the church lady hat game on lock! While on a recent thrifting adventure, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of these show-stopping accessories placed throughout the store. It made me ponder adding one to my repertoire to wear with the perfect outfit, of course.

Thrifted Thursday: (Window Shopping) Chairs and a Cabinet from Treasure Hunt, Long Beach

June 6, 2013

More often than not while at a thrift shop I find myself looking at furniture and fixtures, as if I have a mansion that needs furnishing. I don’t, so I’m just forced to daydream about all the lovely vintage and antique finds, a.k.a. window shop. Here are a few of the pieces I wished I could take home.

I love a tufted piece. And that pale pink is such a wonderful color.

If I didn’t have a built-in armoire at my apartment, this guy would be perfect for my dining room.

Nice wicker back on this chair! And the shape? Beautiful.

Thrifted Thursday: Dressy Tops from Goodwill, Murrieta

April 18, 2013

As per usual, I told myself I wasn’t going to spend tons of money when I set foot in the Goodwill. I was just there to help my sister, Ayesha, find some cool things. You know. We’re in and we’re out. But then I made the mistake of perusing the blouses, and before you know it, my arms were full of amazing garments at ridiculously low prices. I had to smack myself back into reality. And you guys should be happy that I didn’t give in and buy everything I saw!

This nice spotted Loft cardigan ($5.99) was brand new, with the tags still on from Macy’s. Why would anyone in their right mind donate this? Well, their loss, my gain — for less than $6.

I’ve been in to prints as of late, and this nice patterned blouse (also $5.99) spoke to me, shoulder pads and all!

Grand total: $11.98

See which other items caught my eye that day after the jump!
