Despite the torrential rain on Saturday, many bloggers came out and we had two buses full of thrifting enthusiasts! We cut the shopping locations short a bit because of the weather, which gave us way more time to dig through the racks at Savers.
The staff Savers was fabulous, and they greeted us with coffee, snacks and even 20% off coupons! Amazing.
All of us leaders gave a short little speech filled with useful vintage tips. My tips were more of a list of supplies, and many asked to have it, so stay tuned for a little compiled Thrifting 101 Tips guide!
Apparently out tips worked, because everyone went home with amazing finds. At first I was a little scared to share a thrift store with a busload of stylish ladies, for fear fist fights and hair pulling would ensue over an amazing dress or skirt, but everyone was super nice and even helped find things for eachother! Awww. Bloggers unite!
You can see recaps of the events on all of the otherladies' blogs, including more photos!
I found this crazy sweater coat. See my face of being all like 'crazy good or crazy awful?'
Ikat sweater! Crazy awesome!
Thrifters and their scores back on the bus!
Be on the lookout tomorrow to see these blogger's best scores and how they wore it. The best find in an outfit totally won a $100 gift certificate to Market Publique, Elissa's Thrifting 101 book and more amazing goodies!
We have a soft spot in out hearts for Texas vintage, so we were super thrilled to learn about Vintage Glamporium– a weekend extravaganza in Austin featuring some of our most-favorite Texan vintage sellers ad organized by Feathers owner Masha.
We wish we could fly over there to shop, so if you go please take a ton of Instagram photos so we can live vicarioulsy through you.

Speaking of Texas, I have been meaning to share this fabulous Dallas gal's style. We met Amber at the IFB Workshop we taught for NYFW, and she was wearing our favorite outfit of the day: a vintage dress over leather leggings, black wedges and the amazing Céline luggage tote. And that hair, that hair! More about Amber's outfit on her blog.
Amber does not only write her blog, but has also started her own jewelry line, which is big and bold just how I like my jewels. I'm looking forward to seeing more of here when we come to #TxSCC!
