Thrifty Monday #5

Today's haul was a pretty good one! I only spent about $25 and look at all of the wonderful things that I came home with:

Okay, I'll start off with dresses. Just the other day I was complaining to Geoff that I wish I had more dresses. Looks like I succeeded! Check it out after the jump.

  • Vintage denim dress with floral detail — I can't wait to wear this for an outfit post! When I first saw it, I had an "ehhh" feeling. I'm typically not into denim dresses, and I'm certainly not into embroidered daisies. But after I tried this on, I couldn't help by love the A-line shape of it.
  • White romper — I always look for white, but usually it's hard to find. This romper is perfect for the summer.
  • United Colors of Benetton black and white dress — So slimming! It's always good to have a basic like this in your closet.
  • Mark. Gold foil dress — Obviously what I wore in today's outfit post! Isn't she beautiful?
  • 80s No Boundries blue romper — I guess I did pretty well with finding rompers today. This one is similar to a black one that I own (and love), so I didn't want to leave it behind.

  • Leopard print wrap maxi skirt — Obvious choice!
  • Blue high rise shorts — I'm pretty sure that these are women's golf shorts. Either way, they're silky and light. I think they'll be awesome for our current weather.
  • Oxblood leather shorts — I'm going to alter these a bit.
  • Railroad Striped Shorts — I love striped denim!
  • Light pink polka dot shorts — These will also be altered a little, too. I'm going to make them shorter. Think tap shorts!
  • Colorful striped skirt — I bought this to wear as a maxi, but got it home and realized it had staining at the bottom! Silly me for not checking it. Either way, I'll hem it to a shorter skirt. It also came with a matching top, but I haven't decided what to do with it yet.
  • Floral linen shorts — I'm going to be altering these a little. They remind me of the floral shorts that have been gracing Urban Outfitter's website and stores lately.
  • Blue and white striped capris — These are going to be cropped into shorts and taken in just a small amount. Capris are a good go-to for making patterned shorts!

Let us not forget the knick-knacks! These vintage post cards are perfect for birthdays, get well soons, and hellos! I would much rather send these than those glitter-covered cards from the grocery store. I also picked up a small package that had many spools of colorful thread and zippers. A lot of projects to come!

What did you pick up this weekend?
