If you missed last weeks Thrifters Anonymous Member of the week then you must go back here and check it out...

Now on to our Second half of my trip to Washington DC (Ashburn Virginia)! Sarah took us to our last and final stop, GOODWILL...we were super excited to find some of our Fall must haves...I probably went a little crazy but I definitely crossed of some of my wants off of my list! I didn't take a picture of everything..but I will be styling them soon so stay tuned!

The place was pretty big and really well organized. That's my cart about 15min in...ughh

Leslie has the perfect size feet...they fit into everything...NOT FAIR...

Sarah is really good about inspecting clothes...making sure there aren't any stains or tears...

We also checked out the men's section..I have been on the hunt for some suspenders and leather jackets..

Leslie was really excited haha

Looking back I kinda wish I had gotten this hat...ah well...

Susie found some great leather jackets!!

LOVE yellow

This blouse was gorgeous...really old too...

I fell in love with this one...loved the sweetheart collar...

This was one of my favorite finds...Aztec dress...probably from the 80's..

This jacket actually belonged to a suit...loved the color...didn't get it though..

This dress was definitely vintage...not great in the photo...can not wait to wear this one...

Loved this jacket!

I was on the hunt for red and when I found this jacket I was really excited...loved the gold buttons too!

Susie also found some great skirts..

Peach is pretty

Seriously..if I wasn't traveling I would have this in my closet now...haha

This purse was sooo cute...but I had made a decision that I had too many I gave it to Susie :O)

This poor Goodwill'er took the wrath of our dirty looks after realizing that there were no coupons...obviously prices were reasonable...but when you are used to paying $1.50 $8 just seems like a lot right?

Thank You SARAH for such an amazing Thrifting day...I miss your face...and I can't wait for next time!

Don't forget to check out Emery and all of the Fall Fashionista's HERE!

Now it is your turn!
 If you have a thrifted item, a sale item, or something you can help others save money or time on from this past week, Link up to Thrifters Anonymous every MONDAY and you will have a chance to be featured! Let's be real folks...who doesn't want to see what others are doing to save money, or even how they are letting their creativity amaze us. Oh and not to mention that it's just a cool club and there are no rules, so I won't punish you if you don't want to post my button...I mean it is anonymous right? Thank you and see you every Monday!

Hi, My Name is {Your Name HERE} I am addicted to Thrifting!
Thrifters Anonymous

Here is how it works...
  • In the "Link it to" section, leave a link to one specific Thrifters Anonymous post from the past week or week prior...doesn't matter...
  • In the "Title" section, tell me what was thrifted cuz you were super excited about your outfit or new couch . An example would be "Thrifted Belt, handmade skirt, & shoes on sale!
  • That's all...and there is no judgement here...everything is worthy...and believe me once you link up you are officially a Thrifters Anonymous Member...FOR EVA..ha ha ok..or as long as I am doing this madness..
  • If you miss the link up or do not have a blog Link up to my facebook and share! I would love to see your finds and meet you!
  • I am also linking up to these parties! So many awesome crafts, ideas, and advice!


  1. First of all this the best Monday ever! I'm a proud thirfter and have now been recognized by my peers....hahha. Didn't that sound so official. Haha.

    Second of all I am in love with that aztec dress and the green dress. When you get tired of wearing them can we make them into the sisterhood of traveling dresses?

    Third, I really am addicted to thrifting....I need a 12 step program.

    Get Up & Go

  2. Is this because I finally learned how to use the linky properly? HAHAHA

  3. Seriously, I've got the warm fuzzies just thinking about how fun this day was. Ok, I might have overstepped the commenting boundaries.....


    I am your BIGGEST fan....but not in the creepy Kathy Bates way from the movie Misery...


  4. I love the plaid shirt with the peter pan collar. I found one in the same print last week with a white collar and tie. Of course it was way too small...I bought it anyways and plan on using it as a dress for my daughter. Yours is adorable.

  5. So many great finds. Love that purse to. Cannot wait to see the green dress in a post. It is such a beautiful color.


  6. it's always so fun to see your thrift store photo journey, so exciting! We don't have big thrift stores here so it's really exciting to "shop" with my eyes online. Thank you for hosting!


  7. Work it, work it!! I LOVE thrifting, and you ladies found some great finds!

  8. That green dress you tried is my favorite color. Seriously. I love your actual outfit the best though. Especially with the necklace. Takes it to a whole new level.
