THURSDAY'S THRIFT....Frye boots score..

Hello and welcome to Thursday's thrift where I like to share with you my savings by shopping thrift.  I found these Frye boots size 2 1/2 in the kid's section at Goodwill.  I normally wear a 5.5 or 6.0 shoe size but for some reason these boots fit just perfect with socks.  I know for a fact that boots of this brand can cost upwards of $100.00 bucks  for infant/toddler boots alone. My cost was (don't hate me) $4.99.  I decided to start transitioning into Fall but only because of the boots, I swear and just for today.   I still have some summer things that I want to wear...don't you?  Anyway, this outfit is totally thrifted and gifted...
This owl necklace was a gift from Clarissa at work.  She is a nurse who commented on another owl necklace that I wore one weekend and told me that she had a vintage owl necklace that she wanted me to have since she didn't wear it.  Last night she gave it to me and I am thrilled with it.  I asked her what sort of things she liked and she said, "bangles".  So I am going to look through my bangle bracelets and see what I think she might like.


This outfit is 100% thrifted. That includes my socks which were new from Target and thrifted.  My Ray Bans were bought 2nd hand from a past co-worker so I am excluding them.  Earrings, bangle, necklace, shirt, blazer, skirt, socks, and  Frye boots:  total cost was less than $20.00.   Oh, and excuse my hair, I did not feel like working with it today so I threw it up on top.  Have a great day darlings and I am thinking about a head to toe challenge right now.  Maybe a linky thing.  What do you think?  Is anybody up for it?  Can you dress yourself head to toe for 20 bucks or less?  Let me know what you think...and also Spunky Chateau has a linky party going on every Thursday.  Since Thursdays are my thrift day anyway I may as well join in for inspiration...how about you?  Show off your thrifty finds and your savings. Thanks for hosting, Spunky Chateau  Dawn xo

Frye boots are on my list of "wants"

congrats finding them so cheap, makes me want to go back to the US just to thrift! here in australia in thrift stores they price things depending on the brand and not set prices which stinks

Hey my friend,
Not only can't I believe you got such a deal on those boots I also can't believe how tiny your feet are. I wear a 10. If I had feet that small I would fall right on my face.
I am loving that skirt and blazer. Has me getting all fallcited!

Love this outfit. The red blazer is so cool. I am new to thrifting and have a hard time finding much due to my size, but I am trying hard. I hope some day I do as well as you!
