Thrift finds

 I thought I'd make my thrift finds an occasional feature. I found these on a recent trip to Goodwill, and I think they're going to make a few rotations in my wardrobe this summer.

Liz Claiborne brown backpack: I know mini-backpacks aren't the most stylish thing in the world, but I couldn't resist picking this one up. It reminds me of the first purse I ever owned when I was nine, which was a white mini-backpack with a floral print. This new one seems like the grownup version of that with its rich brown color, buckle straps and braided detailing. It can even hold all my essentials. I would probably wear the straps flung over one shoulder.

Printed scarf: I need more of these in my collection, and I really love the pattern and colors. It's about medium-sized, which means it can just easily work as a neck scarf or a belt.

Total wallet damage: $3.90

How would you style these pieces?

signature1 by you.


  1. Thrifting is one of my favorite things in the whole world!

    I recently blogged about my trip to one of our largest flea markets here in New England!

    I would wear that gorgeous bag with a cute summer dress and boots!


  2. note to self- THRIFT for the satchel that I'm looking for...

    PS- I had a maroon mini backpack- LOVED IT, had to have it!

  3. Loving that bag! Great find.

  4. I love sharing thrift scores! That Liz bag is awesome. I've spotted a few backpack purses that I really like, and I think they're definitely a great option. Especially one like this that's classic but has interesting details. I'd wear it with a really tailored menswear inspired look, or a flowy sundress with a cardigan :)

  5. Ugh, I just love Goodwill and thrifting! I really need to set some time aside to go! Love the items you found! xo

  6. Ooh! So cute! I really love the backpack - I tend to go with safari styling a lot and that would be so perfect!

  7. I'm so glad to have found another thrifty fashion friend! I am newly following! I think you should tie the scarf to the bag!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
