Thrift Store Finds

As many of you might already know, my daughter has been tirelessly fundraising to attend a prestigious summer program, the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine.  Well, the forum starts this Sunday!  

These past few weeks, we've been on the hunt for inexpensive business attire, because the forum has a strict dress code.  Here are some of the awesome thrift store finds that we came across along the way!

Pink Jacket
 Daughter doesn't really like the color, but "it will do," she says.

Black with white stripes Jacket
 Sometimes stripes are just nice.

Two dress shirts - one solid black, one solid white.
Can't go wrong with classics.

These are just some of the great finds.  All together, we found two pair of pants, four shirts, and four jackets!  And the price tag for it all - under $50!  And I'm all about saving $$$!  Now we're in the last couple of days before the forum begins, and we have shoe shopping to get done...Wish me lots of luck with that one!

Good luck with shoes!

You can never go wrong with classics - You are right! Especially because you can find other uses for them besides just "business."

Happiness!

Great finds! I love bargain shopping and hate paying full price. I'm always getting compliments on clothes that I find at TJ Maxx and consignment stores. Good luck to your daughter at the summer program! You must be a very proud mama :-)
