Thrifted : Skirts, Dresses & Lace

Last week I was doing some returns in the Montrose area and found myself with an hour to spend in the Salvation Army - one of my favorite local thrifts! I've been on the look-out for skirts and light dresses (my summer uniform). 

I found a few skirts, a dress (it's not particularly light but the floral pattern is amazing!) and a pretty lace top. All very work appropriate which helps too.

 1. Floral skirt : $2.99
2. Lace top : $1.99
3. Teal Pencil Skirt : $1.99

1. Polka dot pleated skirt : $2.99
2. Floral & Teal Vintage dress : $1.99

The back of the Vintage floral dress has the cutest little key-hole and button.

I hadn't been thrifting for awhile so I was happy to find all these pretty things! I also found a Brita filter pitcher for 99-cents. Random, but nice. 

This Sunday was our 6 year anniversary! My grandparents are visiting so we had dinner plans with them (and had to clean the house to show them around), but we were able to have a nice lunch-date which is always lovely :)

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Awesome finds, Rachel! I had a few really lame thrifting trips the last few months but this inspires me to give it a shot again, but you've set the bar really high!

  2. love the polka dot skirts! and congrats on 6 years together - that's awesome!

  3. Happy anniversary! My husband and I will be celebrating our 6th anniversary this August :)

  11. you seriously find the best things when you thrift! I want to go with you one time! perhaps when I move to akron!

  12. As they say above, that floral dress is beautiful :) How are you going to wear it? (BTW- I'm jealous of your Salvation Army's prices. I find the SA's close to me are very pricy)

    Happy anniversary!
