My Thrift Store Shopping List: Fall 2012

Every couple of months I make a mental list of items to keep an eye out for while shopping at thrift stores. I call it "My Thrift Store Shopping List". I get ideas for this list by checking out the current trends via Pinterest, fashion magazines, and other online sites.I have actually had a lot of success at finding these items too, believe it or not! Very few trends are actually new!

This is a list of the items I am currently looking for to wear this Fall as inspired by Fall 2012 runway looks.

Anything Burgundy:

Pointy Toe Pumps:
Not since the 80's have these been so popular

Quirky Sweaters:
I esp. love ones with animals!





So keep your eyes peeled for these items when you are thrift shopping and you will be sure to score some great trendy items!

As most of you probably know it's Fashion Week and designer are already showing the trends for Spring 2013. So even though I may not wear some of those items right away, I am still paying attention to those trends so I'll be ready when it rolls around! Yes, I'm already looking forward to Spring! Can you blame me?!

Today I'm linking up with:

  1. This is a fun post. What is your favorite thrift store in Columbus? We usually don't venture beyond the Gahanna Goodwill or the one on Morse. Any other hidden treasures in our area? Thanks!

  2. I'm loving the velvet for fall. That's the top of my thrift list right now.

  3. This list could double as my own. Fantastic pics!

  4. This is kind of silly, but thank you so much for calling it "burgundy" and not "Ox-blood." Everywhere I read now they keep using that term. It makes me laugh every time!

  5. I'm dying for something peplum. I see it everywhere and I just think it is so flattering and cute! I also wouldn't mind something in burgundy... Burgundy skinny jeans tucked into brown boots for fall is my dream.

  6. Burgandy and leather are definitely on my list as well.

  7. It's great when you can thrift a season trend on the cheap. Burgundy and leather are two of my favorite trends for fall. Definitely keeping my eyes out for them! Best of luck on your own shopping endeavors - can't wait to see what you find!


  8. Thanks for putting this list together, Lindsey! I want to go thrifting soon, too, and it's so helpful to have a list on what kind of things to look out for. So glad to be following your blog!


  9. You have all the greatest trends on your list. I can't wait to see your new finds!
