Anyway, my neighbor thinks this post idea is obnoxious. We shall find out if she’s right or not. I don’t find it obnoxious at all, but sometimes we can be oblivious to our own faults.
Penniless Socialite hosts a LinkParty called, “Look What I Got,” that happens on Thursdays (PS – she asked me to do a giveaway for this week’s, so go to her post to check it out and let me know if you like Altar’d State as well!). I thought I would participate (besides treating someone to something at one of my favorite stores), but with a twist. I will only highlight things that I got at Goodwill. Not resale shops, not other thrift stores, just Goodwill.
You see while I don’t mind putting down $400 for a dress, I also don’t mind not putting down $400 for a dress. I know some bloggers talk about things that they’ve thrifted (and maybe I am being obnoxious or conceited here), but I think I score some things that you’d never imagine were thrifted at a Goodwill. I want to show that these types of finds are not only possible but can happen frequently (if you know what you’re doing). Goodness… maybe my neighbor was right and this post is going to come across as obnoxious. Eeps.
Hopefully this won’t appear that way. But what were my recent Goodwill scores?
These NWT rag & bone $595 “Hyde” Merlot colored skinny jeans with lambskin leather front panels. Paid a whopping $14… which tells me Goodwill knew they had something… but didn’t quite know what. My guess? They didn’t notice the tag (shoved in the pocket) and thought they had a rocking pair of pleather pants – haha
Not too shabby for Goodwill, eh?
