Election Day thrift haul

Yesterday, I took a break from nervously waiting for election results to come in to go check out one of my local Goodwill's and see if I found anything good to add to my closet.

I love to shop...and sometimes it's problematic for my budget.  Lately, I've been trying to make a list of clothing staples, colors or items that I'm on the hunt for in an effort to limit myself from making unplanned splurges.

This week's list.
You'll see the last item on the list is pencil skirts.  I think they are a great versatile piece but it did take me awhile to accept them due to my occasional dislike of my pear-shaped body.

Fortunately, I'm starting to get past that and found some great additions for my closet!

White House | Black Market skirt - $3
I actually already have a black pencil skirt but the cut on this one is different and the sheen appears satiny.  Most of White House | Black Market's skirts retail at over $100 so I was pretty pumped.

Rickie Freeman for Terri Jon - $3
Despite the fact that this is a size 4, I might still end up getting the waist taken in a little to add to really showcase my figure. Love this for holiday parties, etc. This brand is sold at Sak's with skirts running around $300.

Alanni by Donny Brook - $3
Possibly, my favorite find of the day.  Yellow is one of my favorite colors and while many people are all about neutral tones in the fall and winter months, I love having pops of color to cheer up the often dreary weather.

Camel colored skirt | apostrophe - $3
I didn't have anything camel colored and while I usually shy away from browns because I don't like feeling like something matches my skin tone, I love this skirt and think it will go with lots of items in my wardrobe.

Printed skirt | LOFT - $3
This skirt still had the tags on! Love LOFT, love the top pockets on this skirt so it was an easy decision.

I also picked up a really cute white top and ended up spending just $19 after tax.  You can't beat Goodwill.

What's your best Goodwill find?
