Back to Thrifting at The Goodwill

 A Fun Thrifting Find

thrifted bell sleeve top

Hey Everyone!  It's been awhile since I have shared a fashion post.  I'm back to going into thrift stores and thought I would share a recent find that I think is really fun!

I found this very pretty blue and white top recently in Goodwill.  It has a lot going on and that is what makes it so fun IMO!!  The plaid bell sleeves paired with the stripes and flowers on the main body of the top all just blend together beautifully and give a lot of eye appeal without being overwhelming. 

You all know that anything blue catches my eye and this top certainly is eye catching! When I first started blogging, you may recall I didn't feel drawn to prints so much as I felt that they wore me instead of my wearing them. For some reason, I am much more drawn to prints these days but they have to feel good when I wear them. This top feels really good and I love the flowiness of the shorter bell sleeves. 

This top can be worn off the shoulder as well as regular.  I'm not really an off the shoulder type person so I'm wearing it as a normal top. The material is thin so I am wearing a navy blue cami underneath. The jeans I have owned for quite awhile and the sandals are not thrifted. I purchased them on my recent trip to West Virginia. They are a perfect summer sandal slip-on from Walmart. 

It feels really good to be getting back to my old thrifting ways!  While I have done some thrifting over the past year using online sites, because of having to pay for shipping the bargains just aren't as good as you can get at Goodwill or other thrift shops. I found a new thrift shop recently that I will share with you in another post and it has great finds. I love finding a good bargain and thrifting is also a great way to practice recycling! Plus, I only buy what I really like and want to use. Most of my favorite clothes I wear were thrifted and that's OK by me!

Have you thrifted any clothing recently?  Have a fun top you love to wear?  Been shopping your closet?  Hope you will leave a comment and let me know.  I love hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

Debbie that is a really cute top. Blue is my favorite color. I've really missed thrifting in the last 15 months but am planning to start again now. My favorite thrift store did not survive the pandemic unfortunately.

At last - I'm going to spend some time reading back. Sorry for the absence, Debbie.

I absolutely love that top - it's gorgeous.

What a pretty top, and I like how the bell sleeves are a little shorter. The mix of patterns is subtle and pretty! You'll have to show more pictures of those sandals sometime... they look like an easy option for summer. I'm due for a thrift shopping day.. it's been a couple months since I've been to some of our fun places. They fortunately stayed open so we didn't have to miss out here. It's always a fun treasure hunt!

I really like your new thrifted top, Debbie. I like mixing certain patterns, and the patterns in your top go together so well. It looks comfy and stylish at the same time.

Have a fun thrifting day, Karen! The sandals from Walmart are great for just slipping on and only cost $8 or so. A good find!

Debbie Styles Life said...

Thank you, Sharon! The top was a great find!

Such a cute, versatile top!

Thank you, Lucy, it is versatile and that's what I look for in clothing! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the blue top. Glad you're able to go back to thrifting. Sadly I don't have much choice here but I do manage to hit them occasionally.
