I am beyond excited to announce that I’m following my dreams to start my own boutique and styling business! Check out my brand new website for all the details.

This is my final post on Thrifting with Vee. I’ve migrated all my TWV content to a new blog on the Vee Vintage website. I will continue to post on a regular basis and am excited to share a variety of vintage-related material with you that should be both fun and thought-provoking.  Subscribe to the new blog by May 1st and receive a coupon code for 20% off your next Vee Vintage online purchase!

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who followed this blog the last year. Your feedback, encouragement, and love have been instrumental in pursuing this exciting new adventure!

‘Sweater Weather’ featuring the Seattle Goodwill Outlet

Here’s an oldie but a goodie. This outfit was first featured on Have You Nerd in January 2012. It has served me well the last three winters. Those beautiful boots have since been re-soled, so they’re in even better shape now.

In other news: Last week I enjoyed a Thrifted Black Friday, which has become a tradition in my family. I look forward to featuring some of these amazing finds very soon! Also, I watched Iris tonight. OMG, she is the STYLE QUEEN! I highly recommend the film. It’s on Netflix so watch it now!

 The Specs

  • 1970’s Sweater/Skirt Combo- no more than $1 Seattle Goodwill Outlet
  • Frye Boots- $40 Ballard Neighborhood Buffalo Exchange in Seattle, WA
  • Total Cost = $41

Featured Thrift Shop

If you’ve never been to a Goodwill Outlet, allow me to educate you. I actually refer to it as ‘The Bins’ because literally, everything is just thrown loose into these giant rolling bins from which you shop from. I’m not totally certain as to where all the stuff comes from (perhaps its reject or overstock from the other GW stores?) but you can find some great items if you’re willing to dig. Seriously, bring gloves (and hand sanitizer) and just get into the zen of it! Fun Fact: the Seattle Bins are featured in Macklemore’s ‘Thrift Shop’ music video.
