March Recap, Thrift finds, Purchases and Forgotten Pics

March was intense
March was the month i returned to work
March was an never ending thrift fix and impulse purchases
March made me forget some pics i took
March was warm and cold
March put me in the creating mood again
March is over
And this is what it has to show for...






















And then April...
This is a small selection of what I purchased in March
All was either thrifted, on sale or considered as must have item
I am an addict...it is all about me....:)

Now - tell me you are as bad as me and i will breathe easier....


I will be back soon

Waiting for Mr. D - He is upstairs checking the renovations of the flat upstairs, that reminds me i should take pics soon to keep you posted on the progress of the renovations

Have a great weekend !

You've thrifted some wonderful pieces this month--I especially like the dress with the tulips.

I am with Terri on the dress with the tulips. The rest of it is great too. I just bought a red and white gingham shirt, but not thrift. You have some really good thrift stores and are an excellent shopper.

Oh no, Ariane, I'm nowhere near as bad as you, you've clearly got a problem... hahaha!
You've found some wonderful things.
You look amazing in that first purple dress; my favourites are the handkerchief top, the fabulous Hong Kong beaded dress, the red shoes, yellow skirt, silver shoes (how I wish they were mine!) and your peacock pendant in the last shot.
You may be an addict but you have an impeccable eye, my friend!
I keep thinking to send you something, but I can't compete with your amazing buys!!
Have a great weekend. xxxxxxx

Mmmm, the brown beaded dress looks fabulous, and I love the black and white oxfords. Great shopping, dear Ariane, you mix it all together wonderfully.

That yellow skirt with the pink poppies might look great with the floral poncho blouse above it. This is some great stuff!

Bella Q said...

What an eye you spy! I love your scores- the red gingham dress and the yellow with gingham collar 2 piece set are to die for!

Melanie said...

I love that sleeveless top that says Italy on it. And the tulip dress. You also have the best shoe collection!! Now that you're in the creating mood, I can't wait to see what April brings!


Loving your finds and gorgeous outfits, Ariane.
Have a lovely weekend.

so much thrifting goodness. I like the whole array of colors and patterns...I'm sure you will do a wonderful remixing job with these pieces. I like all your outfits, as usual, great color co-ordination and eclectic mix. Very inspiring always. You are so good at updating vintage pieces.

You fabulous woman! I love your denim shirt, silk waistcoat and fabulous pendant and that Thai silk dress fits you like it was tailor-made!

Great stuff! the flowery cape top is my fave, I think!

Madeline Quaint said...

The pink platforms and the pink-yellow flowery skirt... <3 J'adore!

I love all the color! Your style is so vibrant.

triggermyfashion said...

March has been so good to you...such beautiful finds...the kurta suits you perfect and in love with your third find(such cool prints)!!!


Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Ive just been scrolling up and down the page virtually squealing with delight at your magnificent finds. xx

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

March looks like it was pretty amazing to me!! I love that first outfit..the color is gorgeous! And the shoes you found are so much fun. Have a great week, Ariane!!

Forest City Fashionista said...

Oh Ariane, I think we'll have to start our own support group. I am as bad as you (we are not "bad", we are creative, interesting women who like to express ourselves through our clothing), but I can never find things as wonderful as yours for so cheap. My favourite is the purple and gold dress in the first pic, especially because you have paired it with purple docs. I love the beaded dress and the black and white shoes too! Can't wait to see what treasures April brings!

As often as I can, I go thrift shopping twice a week: Tuesdays at Goodwill when I can get my senior citizen 25% off discount (and I hit at least 2 stores near my home) and the Salvation Army on Wednesdays (all clothing 50% off). It is my therapy, hobby, whatever you want to call it.

Sometimes I wear the stuff as is, or I upcycle the pieces. Very rarely I resell them, and then only at a favorite consignment shop. That way I can build credit to get something I want from the shop. Otherwise, I don't resell because I want to leave treasures for other people to find.

I love your finds!!

Lorena said...

You nifty little thrifter !
OMG ... you shopped your heart's desire - i might just be a little envious.

Mrs. D said...

So much colour!
Funny that we used to sell those underground kitty shoes at a store where I used to work at :)
