Before I get onto the topic of this post… I am going to put it out there. I failed my capsule wardrobe. Everything I’m wearing is a new addition to my closet. WOOPS! I’ll talk about why I failed in a later post but onto today’s post…
I’ve only found a designer thrift find a handful of times. One time I didn’t pick it up because it wasn’t my size and one time I didn’t pick it up because I just didn’t like it (and it was in poor condition). But there is something so magical about when you find a designer thrift find that is in good condition and in your size. It’s happened to me once before – a beautiful peplum top from Phillip Lim (see here). I still have that top and wear it quite frequently.
One of my newest thrift finds is something I have been hoping to find but never thought I would… designer shoes! As I mentioned before I have incredibly small feet. I (on average) wear a size 2 in kid sizes! But I was at a local thrift store a few weeks ago and stumbled upon these absolutely stunning Ferragamo shoes. They were a marked up a little bit but also 25% off! so I hastily tried them on and thought they were a little snug but decided to pick them up anyways as they look like they have hardly been worn.
They are a beautiful suede material with some espadrille details on the soles. They were a little snug at first and, not gonna lie, super uncomfortable! I was worried I wouldn’t be able to wear them but after a few wears (and some band-aids) later they fit perfectly! I can’t wait to wear them during the fall with some jeans.
But they also work perfectly with the newest denim dress! My dear friend Maddie was selling this dress on Vinted and graciously gifted it to me for my birthday. It’s originally from Madewell, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. I can definitely see this dress becoming a staple in the fall with some tights and a cardigan!
My bag was also a birthday gift. I needed a new purse and I am absolutely in love with this one! It’s a great size if you don’t need to bring many things around and in the most beautiful rust shade!
