Thrifted Thursday No. 1

Dress: thrifted vintage
Sweater: thrifted
Shoes: thrifted
Bag: thrifted vintage

I decided I needed to challenge myself to create at least one all-thrifted outfit per week, so my blog now has its first feature: Thrifted Thursday. I’ll allow myself to wear non-thrifted tights or socks if necessary in my Thrifted Thursday outfits, though, because I don’t own any thrifted tights or socks. I’m going to try to stick with thrifted shoes even though I don’t have many yet. I might have to cheat in that area at some point, but I’m at least going to try not to!

Today was absolutely perfect. I probably sound bipolar after my last post, but it was. I met Ani and Emily for lunch to celebrate Ani’s birthday, and after we ate we talked forever and walked around Urban Outfitters, Wasteland (they sell vintage at prices I definitely could afford if I had a job) and this weird $1 bookstore in downtown Burbank. We also visited Yogurtland, where I had their newish Guava Pineapple Tart flavor. It was SO good, but I like anything with guava.

I’ve blogged about the dress I’m wearing before, right here, but I’ll mention again that I found it at Quality Thrift for...$5.99! Their store doesn’t specialize in vintage at all, but it seems like every time I go there I find one or two cool vintage items hiding somewhere. I added the green pullover because I’ve been wanting to create a yellow and green outfit lately. I’ve been seeing this color combination on Chictopia and other blogs and I think it’s perfect for spring.

The overall ’70s look of this outfit was also inspired by Freaks and Geeks, which Jasen and I have been watching this week. I know it’s set in 1980-1981, but there’s some serious ’70s style going on in that show. I’ve seen so many cool color combinations that I want to try. I especially like the outfits worn by the Cindy Sanders cheerleader character and Maureen Sampson, the “cool” girl who hangs out with the geeks for a while. The female teachers wear some cute outfits too. I can’t believe that show was cancelled after only 18 episodes. It’s so smart and real and painful and I just love it.


  1. I like the idea of Thrifted Thursdays. As usual a gorgeous outfit. My local Thrift Stores have increased their prices as everyone is starting to shop there. It sucks for the little old regulars like me that have been doing this for years.

  2. lovely outfit! i like your style.. xoxo

  3. The dress and sweater go perfect together, I really love the tie-neck. Fantastic as always!

  4. U paired them perfectly!

  5. You looked lovely with that outfit Heather, and I love the 'Thrifted Thursday' idea a lot.
    Also thank you and Emily again for a nice Birthday get together. It's always nice to see my amazing friends :)

  6. TEACH ME YOUR THRIFTING WAYS. I'm freaking out! This outfit is so perfect, and you thrifted it all?? I'm notoriously fail at thrifting. I can't find anything cute, and the stuff I do find I never ever wear. I'm so jealous.

  7. I SAW THIS OUTFIT IN PERSON. And it is flawless. I also love the dress, if your sister ever finds another in a size 8, you know where to find me!
