Remember way back when (last week) I mentioned the thrifting in Salt Lake City?
You guys, it was insane. I finally forced myself to put down my new leopard purse long enough to take a picture of it. And a few other pretties too…
Purrfection. Right? And can I introduce you to my my other new love? That’d be my fabulous faux-fake (fingers crossed she’s the real deal) Fendi attaché case. In all honesty, and at this price point, I don’t think she is, but with those stripes I could care less.
Oh! And I’ve included prices because I like talking numbers. Also, I don’t think the lowest price point when thrifting necessarily means you got the best deal. Sometimes I’ll spend a bit more if it’s something I’m really gonna use. Like this work
horse, erhm, leopard bag.
But that’s not to say I don’t love me a good bargain! This ceramic/wood
ashtray (with original tags) was only six bucks! This thing would have cost a fortune in LA! And it’s neon. So on trend SLC.
I’m also totally getting a bang for my buck with these baubles. I’ve worn them almost everyday since Salt Lake! And again with the neon.
And of course I couldn’t resist a few new (to me) pieces for the closet! You’ll have to keep an eye out for these in a future style post- the yolk on that middle shirt is crazy awesome. Or just crazy.
Big thanks + hugs to Liz Stanley for letting me crash her thrifting party AND introducing me to what can only be described as the best sugar crack pastry I’ve ever tasted. It’s also called Kouing-aman, and I’m obsessed. I’m slightly embarrassed to admit I’ve been tweeting with the bakery for tips to make my own…
And like all good Alt Adventures, there were some pretty fantastic folks along for the ride. Literally. I shared a car with Liz, the lovely ladies of Modern Kiddo and Jenny of Frecklewonder, who is a thrifting goddess.
Do you have any all-time favorite finds?
I think all of mine might be handbags…
ps. I downloaded those little starburst thingies from Pugly Pixel. She’s rad.
