Plaid Fad

Toque: $5.99  Purchased from Value Village
I've been looking for a cozy, Cowichan knit hat for awhile, and I was so excited when I found this one at Value Village! The thick wool keeps my head super warm, and I love the little pom pom at the top. Don't worry, I made sure to wash this hat with super HOT water before I wore it :p

Tank top: $2.99  Purchased from Value Village

Plaid top: $50  Purchased from Aritzia
Label: TNA
I received this shirt as a secret santa gift a couple years back, and I must admit that I have gotten plenty of wears out of it. One of my male friends actually chose this top, and he swears he picked it out all by himself. I guess I can believe it though...since he loves plaid shirts. And anyway, how can you ever go wrong with shopping at Aritzia?

Jeans: $19.99  Purchased from Sirens
Label: Seductions
I was a bit iffy buying pants from Sirens, since the quality of their clothing is usually sub-par. But I was pleasantly surprised to see that these jeans have remained in excellent condition. And if you have an SPC or Sirens card, that means you can get an additional 10% off their clothing. Saving money any chance you get is always a good thing!

Boots: $9.99  Purchased from Value Village
These boots were one of my first shoe purchases from Value Village. Unfortunately, I have worn these shoes so often that they are starting to wear out. What do you think my chances are of finding another pair just like it?

Ring: $5.80  Purchased from Forever 21

Jacket: $49.80  Purchased from Urban Behavior
This faux-leather jacket is such a good deal. I love the combination of the navy blue shell with the attached grey sweater. It is super cute and comfortable, and any jacket with a hood is always a bonus in my books!

Frugal Finds Total: $94.56
I didn't include the TNA plaid top because it was a gift! :)

  1. Love the combo for the jacket and white pants together. I am far too messy to pull of white pants. I can't even leave the house without spilling coffee on them!

  2. hey you didn't say how much the rsx key fob was! =)

  3. Then I would have had to label the RSX key fob as a "Broke the Bank Find". lol

  4. I definitely am going to struggle with wearing white pants. Never had a pair.. probably never will? lol Who knows maybe if I come across a good fit.

  5. I found your blog through the style spy and I love all your outfits!

    I think you should do a post on how you shop at thrift stores and how regularly you go, because I never manage to find anything good :(

  6. Just saw you featured on the style spy!
    So nice to see someone in Vancouver that loves thrifting,
    I've got thrifting and all the good vintage shops down in SF (where I go to school) but haven't quite figured it out in Vancouver yet (where I'm from)
    I do like Mintage quite a bit though,
    Anyway, will definitely be bookmarking your page,
    take care,

  7. LOVE your blog.
    You're a professional at this, you make me want to run to Value Village!
