New Finds Scored at North Syracuse Store

It’s safe to say approximately 75% of my wardrobe is secondhand clothing. For two years, I have purchased my clothing almost exclusively from Thrifty Shopper. Why would I go to a retail store when I can find brand new clothing at thrift stores?! Like my recent trip to the North Syracuse Thrifty Shopper where I found two pieces new with tags. Check them out!

My first item is a Banana Republic sweater with tags and a retail price of $78; I paid $6.99. Cardigans are my favorite – I wear one almost every single day (cold office problems). I wore this with my new Christmas present: a taco shirt and green pants. Then I dressed it up with my floral midi skirt and button down.

Next I found a blue Old Navy shift dress ($7.99). This North Syracuse find is a very versatile frock. First I paired it with my trusty black blazer for a professional look. Then I added some fun elements with a jean vest and pearls.

My last item was a super flattering little black dress from Old Navy (with tags!). Retailing at $36, I paid $7.99. I am so excited to mix this dress with my bag of tricks that is my closet. I first paired this with my statement necklace I recently bought from Thrifty Shopper. Then I wore a button up gray shirt under it for a very preppy style.
