I barely had time to go thrifting this month as I hardly left the four walls of my Uni but because I promised myself to try and be more consistent with the Tales from the thrift post this month I’m just going to be sharing with you my favorites of the little I managed to thrift this month. But first let’s check out…
THE SPLURGE :
These brushes and lashes from ‘SITPRETTY‘ cosmetics really isn’t a splurge as they were gifted to me, I’m adding them in this post because I’m super hyped about them. I was planning on getting makeup brushes to help my makeup ministry and the blogging gods decided to bless me with these essential brushes and some dope lashes too. Will be trying them on soon and doing a review to let you know if they are a ‘gotta have it‘ or ‘trash it‘.
My journal is the best thing I’ve bought this year. I’ve been looking a dope journal all year, yeah yeah I know there are a lot of those for sell online but let’s just say I’m still one of those who haven’t fully accepted shopping online, I only do so when I know shopping online is my only chance at a particular item. I’m super glad I made that trip to the bookshop in my Uni and if you follow me on IG you must have seen the gorgeous pages on my instastory (you see why you need to be following me? lol)
You must have seen this velvet blouse on my Instagram feed or featured in this post, I’m still in awe at how I found such an amazing piece for just two hundred naira. The colour, the texture, the embroidery are all in season, I’d definitely be styling it over and over all year long.
I got me a couple of shorts, as a child I loved wearing shorts but in growing up I developed insecurities (will talk about this soon and how I’m gradually breaking that bondage) and stopped wearing them but thanks to the thrift for offering me dope high waisted denim shorts for just 100 bucks I couldn’t help but fall inlove with wearing shorts (currently wearing one).
These pieces of jewelry aren’t thrifted but they were pretty inexpensive that’s why they are featured in this section. I noticed that I don’t accessorize enough in my outfit post so I decided to start stocking up on jewelry and my first purchases are these rings and my gorgeous statement earring.
Now can we talk about my most expensive thrifted piece? Yes? Alright let’s do this!! I’ve found a couple of Polo Ralph Lauren but no one had me screaming like this one did, this jumper right here is everything and more, from the multiple colours to the feel of it and again it’s f****** PRL!!! I never thought a day will come that I’d spend two thousand naira on one piece while thrift shopping but I did that and I don’t regret it.
That’s all on this months episode of Tales From The Thrift, I can’t wait to see what the thrift will bless me with next month and ofcourse I’d be sharing my finds with you. Do enjoy the rest of your month and like my journal says “make the most everyday”.
Till Next Time… xoxo.
