Everything $2 Thrift Haul

Saturday, 30 June 2018
Hey guys!

I can't tell you how excited I am for today's post! Once a year in my area, one of our biggest local thrift shops does a huge sale where each item is only $2. My housemate and I went last year and both did pretty well out of it, so I've been excitedly waiting for months until it came around again. This year I took both my housemate and my Mum along, which worked out really well, as we're all slightly different sizes and could offer things to each other if they weren't our own size.

I snapped a couple of pictures of the set up so you guys could get an idea of what it was like. The sale is held in a warehouse and nothing is on racks, it's all just piled up on tables to sort through. There was piles upon piles of clothes to dig through, which is what made it so exciting I think! My Mum and I got there at 9:01AM when it started at 9, to make sure we didn't miss any bargains.

Because the sale was held in a big warehouse, there were no change rooms to try anything on, so we had to choose carefully to be pretty sure about what would fit us. I was actually quite impressed, only 2 pieces out of the 15 items I got didn't fit right, so I think I did well!

Cotton On Denim Dress: I've been looking out for a nice denim dress this season, and I think this one is super cute! It's quite simple and will be really nice when the summer months roll around again.

Rockmans Skirt: I've also been on the hunt for a nice plain black skirt to wear to the hospital for quite a long time, and I'm so chuffed I've finally got one! My Mum found this one for me- it's so useful having an extra pair of eyes at an event like this. The top I'm wearing it with in this photo is one I got at last year's event- what a bargain of an outfit!

Stripy/Tan dress: I just love this dress! Once I got it home and tried it on I did discover a hole in one of the front seams, but that was easily fixed. I can't wait to wear this one on a night out!

Yellow Zara Dress: This is my absolute favourite colour at the moment, I've acquired so many things in this shade of yellow over the past couple of months! The floral pattern is so lovely and I love the slightly longer length of the skirt.

Lorna Jane Shorts: I mean, you can't leave Lorna Jane shorts for $2 can you?! I certainly couldn't!

Adidas Top: I have a sneaking feeling that this isn't a real Adidas top, as it's one size fits all, which just seems a bit odd. However, the colours are pretty cute and it's in new condition, so I don't really mind whether it's real or not!

Red Button Up Top: This top is a bit different to my normal style, but as soon as I saw it I had visions of it looking super cool with some drapey black pants and my gold hoop earrings for a trip to our local markets; so now I just need to find the pants!

Jay Jays Denim Skirt: I've been looking for a good denim skirt for ages, they're such a wardrobe staple and just go with everything! This was one of my last finds for the day, but one of my favourites! It is a tad on the small size but it's quite stretchy, so I'm hoping I'll get lots of wear out of it.

Black and White Ally Dress: This one is just a lovely simple dress, and it fits me like a glove! I'm addicted to stripes so this makes a very nice addition to my collection.

x2 Patterned Pants: I'm addicted to patterned pants at the moment! I love the pattern on the black first ones, but the other ones actually fit me a bit better, which is somewhat annoying but so typical haha. They do both fit me though as they're fairly stretchy so I'm sure I will get some wear out of them!

Other than these pieces, I also picked up a couple of T-Shirts for my sister and a Nike singlet for my boyfriend. I bought 17 items which should have cost me $34, but I think they may have miss-counted my bag because they only charged me $26 in the end- so it turned out to be a very affordable haul!

What is your favourite find? I think mine might be the yellow Zara dress, or maybe the patterned pants. Have you found any exciting thrift pieces lately? I'd love to know!
