Oh you guys – do we have a #thriftscorethursday treat for you today!
While you are absolutely free and encouraged to continue sharing any and all of your thrifty finds, THIS week, we want to encourage you to post your thrifted or thrift-store Halloween costumes!
– It can be a costume utilizing thrift store finds or a costume from the thrift store (no need to purchase – a mirror selfie is fine!) – the awesome, the kooky, the fancy, the crazy… We want to see them all!
– Next #thriftscorethursday is the day before Halloween and we will be featuring YOUR best thrifty costumes! (Please note that by using #thriftscorethursday you are giving us permission to feature your submissions on our blogs and social media.)
Are you ready to join the #thriftscorethursday costume party?! We can’t wait!
To get you in the mood, my cohosts and I decided to provide you with a little inspiration (and perhaps a smirk or two)…
You might remember my Buffy the Vampire Slayer costume (thrifted leather jacket) that was part of my April Fool’s Day blog takeover:
But that was not my first foray to the thrift store to put together a costume. Oh no…
This fun vintage plaid dress just screamed “Mary Tyler Moore” to me, so naturally my husband did his best Buddy Holly impression… (Name that song!)
Oh Halloween 2011, you were fun!
Are you ready for it to get better [worse]?
This photo actually represents the fruits of my VERY FIRST THRIFT STORE TRIP EVER in 2010 (I’ll let that sink in for a second).
And then I’ll let this photo sink in a little bit.
Back then, I had long big hair. Also, a little bit of attitude.
And sparkly red shorts.
Kayla from The Gilded Bear (Instagram: kainaible) is basically my thrifting soul-sister. I need to move where she lives (not creepy or stalkerish at all) and shop where she shops (totally not weird) and quite possibly find a way to Italian Job her recent thrift score Pace glass and brass coffee table out of her home (definitely a very normal friend-thing to do)…
OR this gorgeous tufted Chesterfield she scored at the same thrift store.
I mean, she basically had the greatest Thrift Score Thursday of all time… Wear it proudly Kayla!
“Obsessed” doesn’t even begin to describe the way I feel about these brass “Boss” bookends Sarah from 702 Park Project (Instagram: sarah_702parkproject) shared. In fact, I jumped onto her Etsy shop ready to throw money at them, but they had already found a new home!
Okay. Ladies & gentlemen, start your engines… Get ready to share your fabulous (or cringeworthy) thrifted costumes so it could be YOUR awesome photos up there in the features section next week!
