dressing room diaries: thrifting lately

Ann Taylor Dress: This dress is actually this gorgeous teal color, and you guessed it, it was a definite keeper!

My mom and my sister loved this dress on me and wanted me to get it so bad, but I just saw myself wearing it only once. 

Old Navy dress: I remember wanting this dress last year when it was in the store, but if you've been following along long enough, you know that I don't like to pay $30 for a dress. I scored it at Goodwill for on $6. ;)

I loved this dress, but it was too small! I couldn't even zip it in the back!

Target Dress: Too big. 

Gahhhh I am kicking myself for not getting this! It was too short to be a dress I could wear to work which is the reason I passed it up.

Target Dress: Definitely looked better on the hanger. 

BCBG Maxazria dress: I couldn't get a picture of the whole dress because it was too short in the front (it was slightly high low), but the bottom hem had the same detailing as the top. This dress was so pretty and feminine and soft. It was a total bummer that it was too short!

J.Crew tee $2: I  found this shirt in both hot pink and in black and took them both home because they are super soft and comfy!

This is one trip to the Goodwill! 3 Ralph Lauren v-neck tees, red Gap tank, white Old Navy cardi, red and white striped Gap cardi, and an Under Armor v-neck. All only $4 each!

I also found this Old Navy dress during the above trip, but I passed on it because the seam sat on a weird spot on my hips and it made me look like I had an inter tube around me. Not flattering.

This picture is one day of thrifting with my mom and sista at Plato's Closet and at Goodwill. We definitely racked up!


  1. You definitely got some amazing deals! I love the Old Navy eyelet dress. I always forget about Plato's Closet--I definitely need to stop in there more often!

  2. So many great finds! I love the eyelet dress.

  3. i swear to goodness, that orange dress will never stop haunting me! someone else posted it on their blog this week. that's the one i wanted last summer that the zipper was ripped in on every dress in my size, in every store. if only i knew i'd gain 20 lbs and could just size up and buy a non-ripped one! the color is perfect on you and i'm so excited to see how you style it. leopard heels, just fab wedges, and pointed blue flats would all be cute (yeah, i just stalked your backlog).

    also very glad you bought the ann taylor dress!! i love that you switched jewelry for different dresses.

    come thrift with meeee!

  4. Love the dresses you picked up! It's awesome that you found that ON dress from last year that you wanted!

  5. Wow you scored some amazing thrifted finds lately!! That first Ann Taylor dress and the gorgeous fit and flare dress you're kicking yourself for not getting are my faves. The silhouettes just look amazing on you!! And all those lovely tees and cardigans will be great for summer! So glad to see your pretty face back on the blog :)

  6. Whoah, what great finds! Love all those dresses you scored!

  7. Awesome finds! I love the Old Navy dress. Where did you get that necklace, by the way?

  8. well hi there Danielle! I hope you are well!!

    I am seriously so impressed by this haul. so many beautiful dresses! I think I am most impressed by the tops toward the end of the post though. those seem to be nearly IMPOSSIBLE for me to find while thrifting. those Ralph Lauren tops look like they're in great shape, and so perfect for a simple Summer outfit!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  9. Hi. I am glad to see you back. You always find the best clothes thrifting. Love the dresses you bought and those Ralph Lauren tees. Great buys. =)

  10. damn girl, what awesome finds! i definitely do not find cute old navy dresses in my goodwill, and platos closet is far too jam packed and over priced for me (personally).
