Hi all! Welcome to another edition of Other Babes in Thriftland! Today we have the beautiful and sweet Emma of Hello Emma! She has such a great sense of style that makes me very jealous. No matter what she wears, she just exudes a level of cool that I don't have. Not just stylish but also so nice and my friend IRL! I'll let you tell her about her ideas of thrifting in her own words :) Plus, she's wearing a skirt that I found but put in the swap I had. I think it suits her much better than me!
I am not as expert a thrifter as Erin and other bloggers I know, but every once in awhile I'll get the thrifting bug big time. Usually I'll make a list of very specific items I'd love to find to keep me focused, because otherwise I don't know what to look at first! This outfit features my absolute favorite thrift find ever: these awesome wedge Timberland booties shone out to me like a beacon at a local Goodwill a few years ago. Thank goodness they were my size!
The striped t-shirt and straw bag have also been thrifted at various Minneapolis/St. Paul thrift stores. The straw bag is another treasure, found at "Fake Target" (which I found out about on Future Lint, thanks Christine!). If you live anywhere near the Twin Cities and have not been to this secret thrift store, YOU HAVE TO GO. It is in the basement of a regular Salvation Army, but is filled to the brim with overstock from Target - brand new stuff! - plus items they seem to have purchased when trend shopping. I think that's why the bag ended up there, once I found an Isabel Marant tunic for twenty buckaroos! So exciting.
Hmmm, now I've got thrifting on the brain. Guess I'll have to make another trip soon!
skirt: swap'd, from Erin!
bag: fake target thrifted
I'll go thrifting with you!! Can you believe that this whole outfit is swapped/vintage/thrifted?! I hope you enjoyed Emma! Don't forget to check out her blog! If you want to be featured, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your favorite outfit. Also, I would love to hear your tips, a story about thrifting or why you shop at the thrift store!
