Goodwill hunting: Loving thrift stores more....

I've done a lot of thrifting this year- maybe more than I've ever done in my whole life.  80% of my wardrobe consists of thrift store finds.  I don't know why, but for some reason, I sort of lost interest in shopping for "new" clothes (gasp!).  Don't get me wrong, from time to time, I'll find something new that I like, but I've been finding so many great things when I go thrifting that it's become my first choice destination for clothes shopping.  Plus, what's not to love about finding something for just a couple of bucks?  Here are a few items I've scored on this past weekend's Goodwill trip.

Metro 7 floral top $3.49
Tucker for Target floral blouse $3.49.  I lucked out when I found this beauty tucked away on a rack.  I've been searching for this top when all of the Tucker items went on clearance and couldn't find it in my size. I can't wait to wear this baby!

Merona animal print cardigan $3.49

Converse flannel tunic $3.49

sheer animal print tunic $3.49.  I didn't realize this was actually sleepwear until I read the label in its entirety when I snapped the pic.  Oh well, I'm still going to wear this with a pair of black skinnies and some heels.  Ha!
Bisou Bisou kimono sleeve top $1.75 (reg. $3.49, all blue tag items were 50% off)

belts $1.99 each (the striped one is Ralph Lauren- score!).  I also found a couple of skinny belts- something that my wardrobe desperately needs.

YOU inspired me to start thrift shopping again with your goodwill hunting posts! And now I'm totally hooked!! We have a new St. Vincent De Paul in our town that has all clothes 99 cents on Sundays!

Yes, I always find fabulous deals at Goodwill due to Target donating unsold merchandise there. I picked up 4 Tucker for Target blouses/shirt dresses two weeks ago. I was desperately searching for the cream/polka dot blouse by Tucker, but NO LUCK! Boo.
