thrift wish list + jumpsuits

thrift wish list and jumpsuits - thrifting diva One of the things that keeps me from feeling overwhelmed when thrifting or buying too much in thrift stores is to have a running thrift wish list.  On my thrift wish list are pieces that I am on the hunt for.  As you may already know, you don’t know what you will get at a thrift or consignment store on any given day.  Shopping at these stores are not the same as going to a retail store where you can be confident of the selection.

I actually keep my thrift wish list on my phone’s notepad, so I am rarely without it.  I try very hard to adhere to this list, which allows me to stick to a clear plan when I go thrifting.  Jumpsuits are on my thrift wish list.  It’s actually in bold and capitalized as those are my ultimate score!  But, it is the one item on the list that I am unable to remove, even when I do run across a great one.

  1. I love thrifting and will be doing a big run in August. That said, my wishlist is valid for both thrift/flea markets as well as retail shops. These are usually pieces that I feel are “missing” from my wardrobe. One of them being a light colored purse/bag – white, cream, nude etc.

    I don’t want to get overwhelmed by my own wardrobe, so I try to shop with a plan.

    1. Mo,
      Thanks for stopping by and leaving this compliment! The color is what caught my eye first. No wish lists would have me grabbing an entire store at time. I need a little structure in my life unfortunately.

  2. This is one of the best thrifted outfits that I have ever seen! Thank you for the idea of keeping the “wish” list on the phone, as I always forget when I go, mostly because I get excited and my brain shuts down!

    1. Antionette,
      Wow, thank you for that really amazing compliment! Lol about your brain shutting down. That used to be me. Once I walked into the store, I would become overwhelmed and wander around the store. Go smart phones!

  3. I want your jumpsuit, like right now! You look fabulous as always and you´re wearing my favorite color too. 🙂

    I do have a thrift wish list but we don´t have a lot of thrift stores here like you do in there and so most of the time I just rely on the sales to fulfill my wish list.

    1. MaRae,
      Thank you so very much for that beautiful compliment. I love jumpsuits and always have an eye out for it. I was extremely happy when I saw this one just hanging there by itself. Can we say Thrift Gods looking down on me.
