The reviews are in! I recently went thrift shopping at Savers on Long Island and realized there is a very big difference between vintage shopping in Brooklyn and actual thrifting at chain second-hand stores. Scroll down to see what I found and for how much!
Savers is basically like your typical Goodwill or Salvation Army. The one in West Hempstead was very nice. The customer service was great, the sales were amazing, and the range/quality was very nice!
The first piece I found was this adorable cotton crop top from Forever 21. I thought it would be the perfect top to wear on a night out with some black jeans and booties. I also decided to wear my Zaful teddy coat and my Anthropologie sherling purse. Sadly, Savers doesn’t have the original tags so I’m unsure what this top retails for, but I grabbed it for $1.99!
The next piece I found was so funny, because this is an Abercrombie & Fitch top! If you know me, you know I used to be a manager at an Abercrombie on Long Island. I actually have stocked this shirt in the bays and folded them on the sales floor I’m not sure how many times. Because of that, I know (if my memory serves me right) that this top retails for $24. I got it for $1.99! I paired it with some Aber jeans to keep it on brand and then some high socks and my Converse.
My last find was this work dress! This is an Eddie Bauer brand dress. I haven’t tried it on yet, but I think it should fit fine. I paired it with a little turtleneck underneath, some black tights and ballet flats, and then a brown belt to cinch it in just in case it’s a little big. Also nice to add some definition to your figure. I also decided to accessorize with a black velvet headband. This dress was $5.99!
All together, I spend around $10 on these three items. Thrifting is like going on a scavenger hunt and I am so excited to go back. I’m hooked!
