Happy Friday Fashion-istas! Today we all have an excuse to do some shopping because today we get to celebrate National Thrift Shop Day!
In true fashion, shopping at thrift stores is something that has become quite trendy. Until recently I had never experienced shopping at a thrift store. It just so happens that while running a few errands in the city of Dublin a few weeks ago, my daughter saw this store and asked if we could stop to see what it was like.
So we did.
Going into Platos Closet was an experience. The store was extremely clean and well organized. The clothing is sectioned out by size and color. Among the pieces of clothing, we were able to find quite a few affordable designer pieces. Other than the endless racks of designer labeled clothing, there was a wall of the store dedicated to only accessories - jewelry, handbags, scarves, sunglasses, and everything you can imagine.
Now, it did take us a while to sift through the clothing, however it was worth the hassle. Between my daughter and I, we were able to find a few trendy designer pieces great for her to wear as school outfits.
Here is a list of what we bought:
- SD II gray Skirt - $3
- Aeropostale blue Tee - $3
- Vega Jeans blue-purple leather jacket - $6
- Aeropostale pink Tee - $3
- No Boundaries olive Tee - $1.50
- Forever 21 demin Leggings - $2
- Spring Street checkered Skirt - $4
- XXI striped v-neck Tee - $1
- Nike black & pink Boots - $25
- Self Esteem plaid Jacket - $15
- Misc. Accessories - $9 (pink LEI purse, bangles, two leather belts)
