Let’s Go Thrift Shopping

Our friend Maura just got transferred to Florida, so for her going away party, we all went thrift shopping. jen darling by j.k.h. nelson

Of course I picked up a classic Lilly skirt, that I fully plan on wearing again. Plus a gingham top is something that will come in handy. Adam’s jersey/Hawaiian shirt combo, maybe not so much.

I loved seeing the pleather jackets, pant suits, and embarrassing tees that everyone found. But thrift shops aren’t just for fancy dress, you can find some good deals there too. I snagged a Lilly Pulitzer dress and skirt from the early 2000s, a Marc Jacobs top and an Isaac Mizrahi jacket. I almost bought a Brooks Brothers shirt, but it was a little too big. With some good digging and a tailor, you can definitely get a deal.

Eric’s love affair with his “fur” coat was hysterical. I think I need to find one to keep on hand just for the fun photo opportunities!jen darling by j.k.h. nelson

This coat was the hit of the night. That thing really got around. And for $12.50? Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
