My first thrift store re-style projects

plus size vintage style thrift store finds via Va-Voom Vintage

Today I had my first real thrift store haul. A huge snow storm hit Missouri. It was so pretty that we had to get out of the house. There's a Goodwill right up the street, next to the grocery store. In the window, I saw what looked like bright red shawls! When I got in, I was disappointed to see that they were just felt Christmas tree skirts.


Aside from the mistaken tree skirts and -adorable- shoes that were all too small, I did find some treasures and all of it was less than $15!

The jacket pictured above still had a price tag on it for $86 but since it was at goodwill, I only paid $4. The wool skirt above was also a steal and fits perfectly. The red cardigan and black polka dot skirt is a project in the making. The skirt and cardigan are...less than pleasing. I think the skirt could use new buttons and a few inches off the bottom. Here's a great tutorial from Casey on how to refashion a cardigan so it's not so frumpy.
