The Thrift Virgin

Question: Have you ever been thrifting or gone to a resale shop?

I’m asking because I never had until today – I went to Buffalo Exchange, a popular resale shop chain, and it. Was. Awesome!! I was so excited with my finds that I simply couldn’t just wait to debut each piece in an outfit post – so I’m showing it to you in a haul post!

So the above picture is literally the first picture I took when I parked my car.


Racks upon racks of clothes, organized by type & (loosely) by size. The far wall is where the women’s shoes are. There’s even a sizable men’s section!

After making no less than three separate trips to the fitting room, I headed to the Buy register with my prizes.

Paige Premium Denim Verdugo leggings, new, $28.50

7 for all mankind high waist boot cut jeans, new, $32


The cutest sweater ever! My new favorite. “Les Capains”, $19.50

“Max Rave” sleeveless embellished dress, $7.50

What do you think of my first-ever haul from a resale/thrift shop?

I have to say I’m stoked and will be going back next time I need inspiration in my closet. I spied (and some I even tried on) J Brand jeans, Emporio Armani, Ann Taylor, Forever 21, Abercrombie & Fitch, BCBG, Prada…the designer labels I saw were endless and amazing. Next to an unknown shirt there might be an Armani tee, and next to the 7 for all mankind jeans there might be a True Religion, with a Habitual next to that. It was amazing! The jeans racks alone I could spend hours perusing.

So…what do you think, and have you ever been to a resale shop/thrift shop?
