Do the Humpty Hump!
If you guys read my post from Saturday then you would have been aware that I FINALLY found and purchased a black sequin jacket! I have been searching far and wide for a black sequin jacket! I didn’t want a new school sequin jacket, I wanted an 80’s-heavy duty-I’m ashamed I own this- sequin jacket.
Yup! Your girl is a proud owner of a jacket Elton John would sink his teeth into.
Okay, I’m sure that last sentence isn’t true, but I sounded good.
Meanwhile, I found the jacket at Texas Thrift Store off 35 and 51st street (it’s actually 53rd street). It was the FIRST jacket I saw.
When walking in I read a sign that stated that all white tagged clothes were 50% off that day. As the fashion Gods allowed, my new… soon to be acquired… jacket had a white tag! I almost peed on myself. So the Jacket went from $25 to $12.50. I attempted to get another 10%-20% off, but it didn’t work. Whatever… I was still ecstatic about my purchase.
The store also was selling vintage Dooneys and Prada bags for about $30 or less. Yes, I said Prada. Now… I’m going to be honest. I have NO IDEA HOW to spot a fake Prada. Cuz honestly… who gives a Prada bag to a thrift store?! I honestly didn’t buy it because I didn’t know if it was real or fake… Hmmm… maybe I should do a post on how to spot fakes!
I will now make Texas Thirft Store one of my must stop to see places every time I’m in Austin. Do you guys know of any other thrift stores in Austin? I know Adored Austin goes to a lot… I need to start restalking her page again…
Here’s a video to get you through Hump Day!
