Tales From The Thrift #June16

It’s the last post this month and yes I’m going to be showing off (yes I’m a little vain) a couple of fab things I thrifted during the course of the month. I wasn’t really able to get a lot of stuff as I was on holiday for most of the month and I was at home almost everyday single day of my holiday (I kinda have an addiction, it’s call sleepingalldayeverydayroundtheclock that’s why I’m always home lol). 

The not so splungy Splunge :

The Thrift : 

black satchel, black bag, stylish black bag


next, next bag, backpack, brown bag, brown backpack


Newlook, Newlook fashion, Newlook bag,  Newlook crossbag



Purchased at : Yaba Market 

I absolutely love these bags and I’m so glad I got to the stall when I did to snag these beauties. These bags are totally trendy and I didn’t have to break the bank to get them because in total they cost a little less than three thousand naira which I think is good bargain. 

Purchased at : Cele under bridge 

Would you believe if I tell you I got twelve pretty blouses for just a thousand naira? Well you have to believe me because I really did. Each blouse cost just a hundred naira and I got the two cami tops for free. This has to be my thrift steal this month, I left out the best ones for outfit posts, be on the look out for that.

Purchased at : Street retailer 

This fur collar was a last minute purchase, I loved it as soon as my eyes spotted it because it’s white and looked very cozy plus it was ridiculously affordable. 

There you have it guys, a little peak into my wardrobe. I’m just a little sad I didn’t get any new pair of shoes but I sure will next month. Do enjoy the remaining days of the last half of the year. 

          Till next time… Cheers!

What have you thrifted lately that you love? I’d love to hear from you…

  8. I think we have so much in common because if you haven’t already noticed .. I like you and your blog x_x … I thrift in Calabar and Abuja a lot and I see a lot of amazing things for as slow as N50, I have never really thrifted in Lagos but would try this summer . I absolutely loved this post


    • Check google maps to know how to get there from where you are cause I might not be able to describe it to you since I don’t know your location.
      When you want to bargain in Yaba divide the price the seller tells you by 3/4 and then start haggling, that way you’d get a good bargain.


  9. I like how you mentioned the markets . Real nice . Oh plus I saw you one day at sabo, your edges were looking on fleek
    nice posts girl xx
