Thrift Haul {Dress Overload}

A few days ago, one of our local thrift stores had a 50% off sale on everything! With that said, I was there as soon as they opened. This was partly due to the fact that I was in this store the day prior and saw a gorgeous coffee table that I wanted. I told myself that it was meant to be if it was still there during the 50% off sale and of course it was-for only $7.50!! :)
Ok, back to the dresses. I went through all of the dresses and started piling them up on my arm. My husband was waiting in the checkout line so I had to move quick which also meant that I didn't have time to try anything on. I ended up with 6 dresses for a total of about $13 and just hoped they would all fit.
Once I got home with my finds, I was pretty happy with my choices!
Here are my thrift store finds.
P.S. I had to take these photos during "nap time" so please excuse the rushed facial expressions and lack of  styling. Ha!

This dress is perfect for the warm seasons upon us and probably the most comfortable dress I have ever worn!

I don't have very many stripes in my closet so I'm happy to have this new addition with navy and white stripes. I think this dress would be cute with a blazer and heels.
This dress is super Spring-y with it's pink and aqua blue floral print. I need a big floppy hat for this one! 

I love the coral and teal colors of this dress. It's a bit big so belting it is a must but I like it that way!

Now this dress I am a little unsure of. I don't know where I will ever get the courage to wear a shoulder-padded dress! lol I love the feel of it though and the buttons on the sleeves are fun.

I have saved the best for last! On the rack, this dress looked pretty weird but I thought it might be one of those "looks better on" dress and thankfully I was right.
I am in love with the lace and scallop detail with flowing chiffon on this dress!
 I now just need somewhere "spiffy" to wear this!

Have you found any recent treasures at a thrift store?

  3. I absolutely love thrifting! Great finds as well :) You're right. The last black lace dress was a major score! I also think the red/black printed one looks fab on you. You can rock those shoulder pads! :)

  13. You did good! AND you look gorgeous!I love the black dress, the red & black dress. I think the striped would be killer if you shortened it a bit, maybe to knee length. Florals are perfect right now and that double wrap belt or whatever that is! I want!!!!
