Vintage Finds. Vol 1

So, remember when I went thrifting a couple of weeks ago... well, I've finally gotten around to taking the pictures off my phone and sharing them with you. Just wanted to share a few of my findings with you! That day, I had a budget of 40 dollars, and even though I went over it by about 10 dollars, I did a pretty good job and found some cool stuff!

Sidebar // I didn't feel like doing my hair that day, but I worked that scarf! I've never wrap my scarfs like that either. Don't go laughing at my fat belly either! And just for the record, I really hate seeing the cell phone pics like I did, but hey, what's a girl to do when she's trying to sneak in the dressing room?! LOL!

Here's what I got:

Red Print Skirt
I don't know what it was, but I could have sworn that skirt whispered "buy me" when I walked past it. It literally called my name, so I figured I'd give "red" a try. But really, let's not forget that longer length skirts are in this fall season, too!

Sequin and Beaded Top
As you can see, I was extra excited about this! I spotted this jacket as I was just about to check out! Had to try it on, to avoid wasting money and BAM, it fit! Just $6 for this beauty!

And what I left behind:

Small Polka Dot Top

I mean, it was alright, but I just didn't like the fit.. I could have worn it with a blazer or something, but I didn't think it was worth it. Plus, I think it makes me look top heavy. The shoulder pads didn't do it for me either.

Isaac Mizrahi Black TuTu
Ehh.. how dreadful? Honestly, I think the only reason I even considered this was because it was made by Isaac! Sad. I know. But really, I knew good and well that I am too short and got too much booty to be balleting around town!

Like I said, thrift and vintage shopping can take alot of time. I know I used alot of energy that day! But, I found alot of stuff that day, just didn't take pictures of everything! Not to worry, there's more to come on my next Vintage day! I just found a new store the other day and plan on visiting it very soon!

So what do you think of my finds?? Be sure to let me by commenting below!
