Can I be totally cliché and say that I can’t believe that it’s the end of August? Because it’s true. Another month has passed, which means another shopping list is done. Well, sort of. My mini blogging break set me back a few weeks for The Thrift List, so I did the best that I could. I might not have found everything on the list, but the items I found are pretty darn good.
It might still technically be the end of summer, but I’m all ready for fall. The Thrift List proves it. Almost all of the items I found are perfect for the upcoming season. I can honestly say that everything from the color scheme to the accessories will get their fair share of wear throughout the upcoming season. I was genuinely excited to find all of the items.
Now for the bad news. I only found seven items off the list. Of course, you already saw one of them. I made the mom jeans that I found into shorts. It sparked the DIY bug in me again, so get ready for some more very soon. Enough about me talking about the items. Here’s everything I found this month, so you can see for yourself.
This is by far my favorite item that I found this month. Ready for this? It’s Ralph Lauren. It was originally $7, but I used my saved up points and got it for $2. Believe it or not, the designer item was one of the most affordable piece on The Thrift List.
The jacket could easily be transformed into a dress with just a few alterations. The buttons go all the way up, so and it’s definitely long enough to wear alone. I think it would be just right with a closure tied around the waist. It’s a size medium, which makes the sleeves too long, but I prefer them rolled up anyways.
Sweater With Elbow Patches
Everyone thought that this item would be the hardest one to find. It actually ended up being the first thing that I found. I’m a tad bit obsessed with the top. The brown pannels are some sort of faux suede and the stripes are cotton. It fitted without being too snug, and I will be wearing it all throughout fall.
I believe that this top was $3. It’s originally from a little boutique somewhere, so I was okay will spending the money. The top actually had the original tags on it. Believe it or not, someone paid $28 for this top that they ended up not even wearing. Lucky for me!
I’m not exactly sure what makes a summer scarf rather than a fall. I did my best with this one. I opted for a scarf with light fabric in a dark color, so it could go from summer to fall with ease. September is here, which means that I can get away with all the fall talk, right?
I found this particular scarf at Salvation Army for $1. It’s not exactly my everyday accessory. I thought it was worth it for the price. The scarf will look great around my neck or even just tied on my bag for the season.
This one was a bit out of my comfort zone. Band tees aren’t exactly my go-to look, but I enjoyed playing dress up with this item. I got it for $2, which means that I won’t be upset when I donate it again. Because, let’s be honest, this one isn’t going to be sticking around for that long.
My dad started telling me stories about the Grateful Dead concert he went to, as soon as took this item out of the bag. I don’t have a personal love for the band, but I do like the colors. That’s got to count for something, right?
Zoom in on the pic and you’ll see the choker that I snagged for the month. I was super excited to find this accessory at Goodwill. The choker is originally form Target for $13, but I got it for $2.50. That, my friends, is what they call a steal.
I normally stick to minimalist accessories, no matter what season it is. This necklace just spoke to me. It could be worn with something minimal or dressy just as easily as with a casual tee. Shout out to whoever suggested I buy a choker, because I love it.
I bet you thought my something faux leather would be a jacket. Wrong! I will admit that the item was on my radar. It’s the first thing I thought of when I heard the word “leather.” I couldn’t find one that fit me just right, but I did find these faux leather shoes.
The summer to fall heels were brand new from Target, but I got them at Goodwill. These were the most expensive items on the list at $5. I don’t regret a single thing though. they’re comfortable and super versatile. Needless to say, I’ll be wearing these a lot this season.
What do you guys think of The Thrift List this month? I know that I didn’t find everything, but I think I did pretty darn well for a two-week hunt. Please let me know what fall items you want me to find in September! I was to get a jump on the list for this month, so I can nail every item. I need your help!
