Thrift Store Haul

Hey guys! So the other day I took a trip to the thrift store. Now normally when I head to the thrift store, it's just as bad as me shopping in regular stores, I kinda go a bit crazy. Only afterwards, I don't feel as bad because I spend the same amount that I would normally at say, Forever 21, but double the rewards XD. Luckily this time I went in looking for some specific items. 

I'm loving the long skirts coupled with blod colors. I had noticed that slowly, my color palette had been shrinking and I had some how stopped wearing the bold bright colors that I had loved before and I missed it! I guess as you get older you tend to get kinda lazy with your color choices as it's a hell of a lot easier to throw on neutrals than colors lol. Murua has really been inspiring me with a lot of their pieces as it's a great balance between these two =w=b.

Solid blocks of color coupled with black and some patterns. Simple but it really adds that POP. 

  Sadly, I'm not a big fan of the faux collars, but these bright colors    I'm loving.

I love, love, love, this coordinate 

With this in mind, I was able to snag some really nice pieces while there.

Two red skirts, one corduroy and another a sheer patterned one. The urge to wear something red hit me out of no where. Normally, I never wear red, EVER, but for some reason during the week, I had this need to wear a red shirt lol. Red is very in this season, not just in clothing but in accessories and makeup. It's a great way to add a pop to a neutral color palette.
I also found a velvety black skirt with a lovely pattern as well as a sheer black pleated one. I'm a big fan of patterns, another thing that's a big part of Murua. 

I couldn't stay away from my trusty black and white haha. I was so happy to find a long simple black skirt made from a thicker fabric for the fall/winter. It was still new, tags and all and it was originally $74, I got it for $6, score! Also got a long plain black velvety one, as well as a short polka dot skirt I had been dying to get my hands on for a while. Lastly, a new stripped sweater to replace my old one that finally died ;w;

Lastly, something that I'd been looking for for a while now, a furry, short brown jacket >w<b. I've been wanting one since I saw them all over W <3 C and I'm so happy to have my hands on one. I can't wait to rock this with one of my new red skirts~

All in all it was a great success! There are still still some more things that I wish to get to try and bulk up my fall/winter closet. As for the upcoming fall trends, I'm still keeping an eye out for some more that I really love. I can't wait to see what else pops up as the month progresses. 

Until next time guys, but first, What are some of your favorite upcoming fall/winter trends? 



  1. U are sooo lucky to find those skirts at a thrift shop. You would think it would be pretty simple but I am having no such luck here in St. Louis! ToT

    I think some of fav trends would be the bold colors as well and I'm bringin back my leopard jacket! I even bought another one (it has a hood this one though). Though i don't think I will ever be able to let go of black. >w< Maybe a mix of rock, mode, and sweet style lol lets see if I can try and pull that off >w<

  2. lol it's all a matter of finding things that you think you can work with/ alter. Alot of the skirts that I found are waayyy to big, but I like the cut and style so I'm just gonna take them in =w=b. Perks of going to an art school, free sewing machines lol!

    Yay! for leopard jackets! I found this huuuuggee big black and leopard obe last year, it's awesome but i feel like a pimp in it XD. Yeah, black is such a wonderful go to color, it's so flattering and versatile I don't think I could let it go either. Omg, that's kinda what I'm doing right now, i'm in lovveee with fairy kei and spank and i wanna try and integrate more into my style >w<b. Trust me, you can do it!
