“Thrifty & Vintage Finds” Link Party #78 — Thrifty Fashion

Dagmar's Home "Thrifty & Vintage Finds" Link Party

Welcome to “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party No. 78!

If you found an amazing deal lately, a vintage or thrifty find, then I’d love you to link up. You might get featured next week!

I have some fun finds to show off! I’ve been helping my sister-in-law Lisa pack up to move to her new house, and she ended up giving me several bags full of clothes and home decor. Free is even better than thrifty.

This is just one of the jackets she gave me.

014aIt’s from Free People, and not something I would’ve bought — Lisa has a much more funky and colorful style than me — but I love it.

This is going to look so cute paired with jeans. And it’s as comfortable as a sweater.

She also gave me this skirt, and I’ve been wearing it a lot.

Landon’s comment about this cute linen dress: “You look like you’re wearing a mohawk on your tummy.”

And here is another thrifty fashion item — this one I bought.

I don’t shop much for myself in general, but Landon and I went to Kohl’s yesterday to get him a few things. After having way too much fun with superhero jackets, I grabbed these Vera Wang bermuda shorts from the clearance rack.

Vera Wang shorts, size 6They fit perfectly and were marked down 60% to $17.60. Since I had a 30% off coupon, I only paid around $12. Not bad! I’m going to enjoy these for the rest of the summer.

All in all, I saved $285 on our shopping trip because I also used my $20 Kohl’s cash.

024aThis is my first jadeite piece — a little tall box I picked up for 10¢ that I turned into a planter. This must’ve had a top at some point, I’m guessing.

Did you show off your latest find at my last party?

If you linked up, thank you! You all made my choice of who to feature so hard again.

I decided to feature Diana from Andirondack Girl @ Heart and her adorable vintage shop light she made into a lantern. This looks like something straight out of a fairytale.

Your turn! If you’ve picked up a thrifty or vintage find lately, I’d love to see it.

I’m thrilled about any link, but if you want to get featured, please only link up thrifty or vintage finds, and link back to this post. I also feature DIY posts if you transformed something that was originally a thrifty or vintage find.

And after you link up, it would be lovely if you would share this party — pin, stumble, tweet away! The bigger the party, the more exposure for all of us.

How to link up:

  • Link up posts about your thrifty or/and vintage find.
  • Please add the party button to your post {see code below} or a link back to this link party post so others can be inspired to join in the fun. Only posts with a link to this party will be considered to be featured.
  • No links to giveaways, or shop or Etsy sites please.
  • By submitting a link you are authorizing for your project to be featured. Featured links will include a photo and a link back to the originating site.

Dagmar, super great things this week! I love your sil’s freebies (that jacket is soo cute, will look great with jeans!). Love me some Kohl’s cash – I got a really nice rug shampooer with cash after Christmas last year – free!
Diana’s lamp looks great – must’ve missed that post, must go visit her!
Thanks for the vintage party. Mine’s light fare this time, but I’ll be posting my longest yard sale results soon. ;)
