Thrifty Threads: A Salvation Army Shopping Review

Mom & I ventured to a neighboring town to see what 50% off Wednesday was like at another SalVal. It was PACKED! I snagged two items on my fashion wish list and another “bonus” piece. Here they are!

1. Pineapple khaki Capri- The brand on these isn’t great, but for a few bucks, I love an embroidered piece. J Crew makes similar pieces for around the $50 range.
2. A blue Oxford has been on my list since I first drafted it! This is a ¾ sleeve top by Lands’ End, making it a great quality piece. It needs a little tailoring. I’m still keeping my eyes open for a long sleeved one at a good price.
3. Finally, the Pièce de résistance, the collarless jacket. It didn’t look like this when I found it. It was scary and extra furry looking. I snagged it for $6 and gave it a haircut. 

I put together a little visual for collarless jackets just a few days before my trip and I think the fashion goddesses saw it!

 They smiled down on me and planted a beautiful collarless jacket in the racks for me. It’s currently being dry cleaned, and I can’t wait to wear it once it’s back (and less smelly).
Tell me readers, Are you feeling the collarless jacket trend? Comment or email me at or tweet me at BsGoodwillHunt
Thriftfully Yours,
