For my last thrift of the year I decided to take a risk and head to Value Village on Christmas Eve. It ended up being a very good risk since the store was quite quiet as compared to what the roads, malls, grocery stores would have been like. I think I will have to make it a yearly tradition! It ended up being a quick visit as I too wanted to get home but it was very lucrative in the short amount of time!
Here’s what I spotted:
J. Crew Excursion Vest. If you are on Instagram or Pinterest, you know that this vest is probably the most popular thing on there this year. This was a beautiful coral colour $13 but too big for me. These retail and resell for well over $100!
And now for my purchases:
Marc Jacobs purse $10! This was stuffed into a row of purses and I of course noticed the stitching right away and then my heart stopped. Marc Jacobs is my favourite! This bag was in perfect condition!
Portofino Chaussures perfect condition $20. These retail for around $200 and are something I would never buy retail but this is why I love thrifting as it allows you the opportunity to try new styles for cheap!
Vintage Jeremy Scott vegan leather with fox fur trim, made in Canada $35. Jeremy Scott is the current Creative Designer of Moschino but in my research about this jacket I also discovered that there was a Jeremy Scott who designed for the 80’s women’s wear store Braemar. Was this the same Jeremy Scott? Unknown but if you know the current very-out-there designs of Moschino you would think not. Either way, this jacket was gorgeous and as I was trying it on a couple people stopped me to mention how nice it looked. Although this jacket is at least 25 years old, it was in great condition and a beauty!
Have you ever noticed that sometimes your thrift haul’s end up with matching or corresponding colour themes? I realized that I didn’t snap a pic of one sweater pictured here, a black over sized knit with brown and white specs by Kensie for $9.
