I had a thrift haul for your last month, and now I have a May thrift haul for you! This either means that I’m incredibly dedicated to my craft…or it means I have too much free time on my hands. Enough time to sit in my room and talk to a camera about what I’ve bought recently. Watch the video below to see my steals, and my newly dyed hair looking like a hot mess. I was afraid to wash it.
This month’s finds (try saying that 5 times fast, it’s hard) come from the Depop Closet Sale held at Root Studios in Chelsea, as well as Crossroads Trading Company in the Flatiron District.
The Depop Closet Sale was a pretty awesome event. It was held by Depop and Nylon Magazine, and was basically a fashion blogger garage sale. Depop was selling clothes from big-name fashion bloggers like The Blonde Salad, One Dapper Street, I Hate Blonde, and Just Another Fashion Blog. I picked up a pair of Windsor Smith Birkenstock-like black sandals from the last one for only $15 (similar ones here). From Nylon’s sample closet, I got a color block mini-dress with a Peter Pan collar. I’ve gotten a lot of wear out of this in the short time I’ve had it in my possession. It’s so easy to throw it on and run out the door.
I love shopping at Crossroads Trading Company in Flatiron, but I’m there so often the staff there knows me. I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or if it’s totally embarrassing. At Crossroads I picked up a Ralph Lauren Rugby cardigan with a simple athletic stripe detail, a bright yellow and floral printed Liberty of London by Target trench coat, and a pink and white striped H&M button-up.
At the end I threw in a cropped sweater my girlfriend gave me. Having a girlfriend is like having two wardrobes. It’s the best.
