Vintage V. Finds: Safari Queen!

The other day I went for a walk around my neighborhood with my grandmother. We found ourselves at the shopping area and I couldnt resist stopping by the Goodwill and the Salvation Army. Those two shops have been my favorite since I was 15 years old. For some reason, in the past few months I have gone to those shops, I havent found a thing. It’s rare for me to go into any Salvation Army or Goodwill and leave empty-handed. Everything has changed, the prices are higher, the merchandise isn’t as good, and It kinda feels like every time I go in, It’s already been raided by thrift store owners. Many expensive thrift shops have merchandise from places like Salvation Army, they just slap a bigger price tag on it. Anyway, I hit the jackpot the other day and I hardly spent anything on these jewels! I think my grandmother is good luck.<3

How amazing is this Leopard shrug! Oh my god, I nearly died when I saw this. I’m going to wear this to shreds!

Salvation Army. Authentic Vintage. Sonata Fashion. $10

I love over-sized dresses from the 80’s. This one is just classic, I love it. I even purchased this belt for $2.

Salvation Army. Authentic Vintage. MS CLAUSE. $10.

This dress looks like a fresh sample from a design warehouse. The neckline and construction of this dress is simply divine.

Salvation Army. No Tag. $7

Ok so this amazing Jacket is from Zara, I bought this a while ago though. I bought these shorts to match it but of course its a tint lighter. Ah well, it’s going to be too complicated so I’m going to still wear them with this jacket.

Salvation Army. Authentic Vintage. MARKS & SPENCER. $4

I wasnt too crazy about the Jean Paul Gaultier collection for Target until I laid eyes on this dress. If you didn’t know, Target always sends back stock to local Goodwill’s. This means if you happened to miss that Rodarte collection, you might find it in Goodwill for dirt CHEAP. This dress was mine, didn’t even try it on until I got home.

I was on my way to check out when I spotted this dress hanging off a rack. Snagged it and that is self-explanatory.

Salvation Army. H&M. $15

I’m a sucker for cat eyed glasses, had to get these.
