THRIFTY Tuesday New wardrobe ZERO Dollars

One day while looking through the kids folders I found a small 3 x 5 flyer that advertised a "shop and swap" NO money exchanged, donations taken - no limit on what you can "shop" for at the local fairgrounds....I said to myself "self, you have to remember this!!!" Well, I forgot about it the first day it was open to the public, BUT Friday morning I was fiending the thrift store BUT didn't wanna make the drive when I remembered about shop and swap....


NOT long after arriving I had a box in hand....and once I found the fab green wooden broomstick, I made a make-shift shopping cart...

Here is a PORTION of my haul (INCLUDING the fab vintage suitcase)



Here is the first shirt that I am still unsure about - denim is classic - but the buttons date the piece - do you think if I add some fab vintage pearl buttons it could be saved?!?!

THIS next piece is a total find!! Gap denim jacket in MY size!! with this jacket alone, I can make 3 outfits with the things I found at shop and swap....(camel skirt, flower skirt turned dress - PERFECT for Mexico, under the puffer vest and over a black skirt turned dress again PERFECT for Mexico)

The fab jackets....black with taupe and cream and gold....

More jackets - One for winter (BRAND NEW from Chicos STILL with the tags) and a Jones New York khaki jacket for spring / summer

This amazing blue jacket....


This white button down shirt with tone on tone accents - this will be GORGEOUS with leggings and riding boots (that I still need to purchase - any suggestions ladies?)


Another white shirt with tuxedo stripe detailing....again PERFECT with leggings and riding boots...


Puffer vest with sweater back (black, silver and white - PERFECT colors for me)

Cute lil football jersey! Hot for a game over a white tank with jeans....

Vintage crochet vest...

I alos got this paisley skirt BUT as much as I love the length and fabric, the pleats are unflattering so, I have to figure out if there is a way to wear this....

It would be cute with a chambray shirt, right?!?!

I am so grateful to whoever hosted this event and thanked all the volunteers there! You NEVER know where you may find that diamond in the rough!! I have books, games and decor that I didn't post this week (maybe next week).
