25 Top Thrift Finds!!

I've had a lot of lovely comments regarding my thrift finds so I thought I would make a slideshow of my favourite designer thrift finds that are still in my wardrobe and were sourced from the boot sales and charity shops.

I hope it gives you all some inspiration to hunt down your own bargains and it proves that they are out there if you're prepared to rummage for them!!

I'm still lusting over that black maxi skirt. I love this slideshow. The Missoni tunic is so fabulous. xoxo

The Missoni tunic, all the Issy Miyake stuff, the fur trimmed leather coat and the Chloe blouse ....bargain envy here, Sharon! What lovely finds and you look fantastic in all of them.
Thanks for sharing, a great idea for a post.

Fun! When you see them all "in a row" like this, it makes TOTAL sense to shop this way.

Colleen said...

I agree, I have always loved thrift shopping too! The best thing I ever found was a knee length RED leather belted coat for three dollars, probably sounds awful but it was gorgeous...I wore it non-stop and was so sad to throw it out eventually! It is super fun to shop this way! I only wish it would catch on a little more here in Norway, I mostly have to take advantage of being home in Canada to find the super fun things!
Thanks for the inspiration!

You are an inspiration, you are just the queen of bargains. Im pretty happy with my own bargains as well, but most of them dont even come close (esp. price-wise) to yours!

My fave - Missoni tunic, JPG dress and Chloe blouse! :)

P.S.: ♥Please don't forget to join the Sporty Knit Tigh-High Socks GIVEAWAY!♥

Good luck!

Haute World said...

Great slideshow! I remember a lot of these from your posts but I"m still in awe. The Issey Miyake piece, YSL blouser, Gaultier dress and Missoni tunic are my favorites, but all your finds are pretty amazing!

Pratishtha Durga said...

Love the slide show. Your finds are truly amazing and inspiring.

SabinePsynopsis said...

What a fabulous idea! I do have to admit that I get ever so slightly envious of your finds... I also wonder if you are living in a perfect thrifting area or if things have changed. As I said the shops in my town (south-east of london) seem to pass on everything more valuable to proper 'vintage stores' and their prices are not necessarily cheaper than buying new. Anyway, great finds. Well done!

Great items!

Make Do Style said...

Love it! your slide show is brilliant. I want the MJ skirt, Chloe blouse, LV purse please xxx Oh yes and throw in the play suit too!

I see what you mean about header now as well. I quite enjoyed the effort on changing things in the end!

WendyB said...

I need a picture of you in the denim playsuit for a post next week!

Cafe Fashionista said...

Oh, I love the way you've created a slideshow - what a fabulous way to display your new finds! :)

You've taken a lot of trouble to un-earth these finds. I used to get lucky at the Oxfam in Westbourne Grove, Earl Jeans, TM Lewin shirt, Tracy Reese top etc. But I don't have the time anymore to trawl through car boots or charity shops anymore. Bloody double buggy won't fit in the door!

Jen said...

WOW! I am utterly speechless! You've found some amazing things... my favourites are the Chloe blouse, the LV silk top and all those gorgeous Gucci bags! You have a real eye for designer bargains!

Hi, I'm back again. Finally managed to 'officially' thank you for the lovely award you recently passed on to me. Thank you again, Sharon Rose! (I'm south-east, but outside London). xx

Very cool, shame my local charity is closed!

See you soon.

Pearl Westwood said...

What a great idea to do a slide show!! You must have a fab area for charity shops! The best charity shop find for me was a vintage Dior clutch for £20. I do much better on ebay.
P.S I posted an award for you on my blog.

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi ladies-thanks for your gorgeous comments and Pearl, so kind of you, many thanks indeed!!

Wildernesschic said...

Looking Fab in your forties said...

Love the slideshow and the Missoni tunic! glad the blog finally opened! It is a great reminder of things we have seen in the past and when I think that I remember you in that Nicole fahri skirt last summer makes me think how long I have been reading your blog!

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi Mrs Fab-thanks a lot-time really does fly doesn't it!!

* Reena Rai * said...

You're so good at this! We're going to have to go thrifting so you can teach me how it's done

lucysherriff said...

I love this Chloe blouse! Absolutely stunning. I've just started my blog, still trying to get it off the ground, but very similar to yours!

Feel free to have a look, would be chuffed if you did!
