Thrift Score- Spring Delights

12 Apr

I recently discovered this great thrift store in the suburbs of Chicago.  It’s so great that I’m not ready to share it yet, but maybe one day I’ll tell you which one it is.  It was filled with great vintage goodies.

I’ve been on the look out for a spring coat that has some weight to it since it’s still chilly.  I scored with this vintage find since it’s 100% wool.  It’s from Avoca which is the oldest handweavers mill in Ireland.

They are known for their colorful knits.  Since I love color this jacket is great because it’s a mix of purples and blues.  Check out their online store which is filled with beautiful jewelry, clothing, and of course colorful wool blankets.

I love needlepoint, I collect it.  Just check out my apartment.  Before this dress I didn’t own any wearable needlepoint so I was overjoyed when I found this.  It’s perfect for spring and has just the right amount of kitsch. This dress may even technically be a grandma sweater, but pairing it with my grungy black tights keeps it modern.

Who wouldn’t want a pair of suede fuschia heels?!  I love pops of color in a fancy shoe. I think it’s the perfect way to brighten up an outfit.   These are by Via Spiga and just my size.  They were also less than $1!  My whole thrift score, which also included a pink silk blazer not pictured, was less than $10 with tax!  I love thrifting in Chicago.  Wanna go shopping with me next time?
