Holiday Wardrobe Style: Thrift & Tips

I've picked up a few new thrift finds for Christmas & the Winter season in the hottest trends of gold, sequins, lace and GREEN. These few new additions will work well with my existing wardrobe, and all without breaking the bank. I recently walked thru Macy's to see their set for Holiday (love it!) and frequently spotted tons of sequins, golds and greens; however, most every piece I picked up was $50 and UP. By already spotting these trends early in the year and on Pinterest (plus having a fondness of these timeless holiday looks & key pieces) I easily saved 100's of dollars shopping thrift. Extra savings came from shopping on special sale days like every other Saturday at Goodwill AZ has additional 50% off. Using extra coupons I've gotten thru emails or getting a $3 off coupon when making donation drops to thrift stores like Savers, created some extra savings as well.  Here's some of my latest thrift finds - for the winter holiday wardrobe in greens, golds, and sequins...



Old navy woven shirt - great pattern mix for $3 at Savers Thrift Store!

Rugby stripe maxi dress from Goodwill this past April for 50% off $9.99...
Check scarf $3...

Thrift Tip: Thrift what YOU like and over time, you'll find pieces you can re-mix to create your OWN look!

Dark green Nine West bag, reduced to just $6 yesterday at My Sister's Closet!

Thrift Tip: Re-Think new ways to use existing pieces when thrifting - for example thrifted clutches make GREAT tech accessories!

Both thrifted back in April, but perfect for the holiday season!

Gold mesh bags I thrifted this past Spring work GREAT as tech accessories: Large bag holds laptop ext cord + mouse and smaller bag hold my camera and its charger... The copper tote held these and my laptop, + BM fan deck, 3 magazines, notebook, calendar, tape-measure, pen. pencil & highlighter, yesterday when I went to the consultation...

Black satin A-Line maxi was $4.99 at Goodwill and 50% off during a super Saturday sale ($2.50)

NEW lace trim tank (great key piece for layering!) 50% off at Savers ($1.50)

Thrift Tip: When thrifting, keep like items in mind and create a pairing of your own: Sequin tank was $4 and sweater shrug with sequin trim was $3... but 50% off at Savers during Vet Sale, were $3.50 together!

INC sequin top for 50% off at Savers (during the Veterans day Sale)
so yes, it was only $2!! and I already have a black one from a few years back...

Bags thrifted throughout the year... 

The dark green patent bag I picked up yesterday, sitting on the living room sofa throw - also green and thrifted at Goodwill (Like new, cable knit for $4!)

Socks & Leg warmers in beautiful shades of green thrifted for 50% of at Savers
(but not to wear! A DIY project coming up shortly!)





This sequin sleeve jacket I actually thrifted back in Florida at Out Of The Closet Thrift about two years ago because sequins are just classic holiday! And speaking of closet... This little gem of a find is another great piece for layering in the winter * also a classic: Black velvet...


Just made even better design by Ralph Lauren and 50% off at Goodwill!


and what's Christmas without a little tartan plaid... IN VELVET!
(sneak peeks at Christmas around the house...)




or a scarf!


Details about mixing wardrobe pieces into your holiday decor also coming up shortly - stay tuned!





Happy Thrifting!
