  • Miu Miu (SMU 10PS) Sunglasses: $2.92

This is going on my list of memorable purchases at Goodwill. Miu Miu sunglasses for $2.92. Goodness pinch me. I didn’t want to get my hopes up but from the looks of the shades, they looked up to par.

I feel like my instincts are getting better because it turns out the possibility of them being authentic is very high!

That’s right. They retail for $445.

When you go to the Sunglasshut.com link, you will notice the wording on the side of my Miu Miu are exactly the same as the ones on the website!

Never in my wildest dreams would I think I would find such a great treasure at Goodwill!

Wonder what else is on my list of memorable finds?

In no particular order:

Burberry Nova Check Crossbody
Burberry Nylon Shopper Tote(just because I’ve eyed it while it was still in retail stores)
Gucci Crossbody
YSL Bucket bag(Vintage, probably from the 70s)
Longchamp Gatsby Hobo
Jason Wu Jett Plum Sunglasses

There are more practical items but those are the ones that pop in my head immediately when I think of memorable thrift store finds.

I thrifted this Norman Hilton tweed sport coat a couple of years ago, but it was always too tight in the waist. I just picked it up from the tailor yesterday after having the waist let out, and I’m really looking forward to wearing it this fall. Shown here with what I was wearing in the actual summer heat: Luxire seersucker striped button-down (not quite the BBBDC yet, a few iterations shy of what I’ve settled on), Drake’s pocket square, Red Cotton Denim jeans, and Allen Edmonds ‘Walden’ penny loafers.

Pros of pre-storm weather: it’s cool enough for me to wear a long-sleeved velvet dress.

Cons of pre-storm weather: my knees fucking HURT

[One image of a young woman (me) with dark red hair that goes down to my collarbones.  I have a black wrist splint on my right wrist.  I am wearing a long-sleeved green velvet dress that goes about a third of the way down my thighs.  I’ve scrunched the sleeves up so that they only go to my elbows.  Under the dress, I’m wearing somewhat sheer black tights with gold sparkles on them.  I also have on dark brown boots and dark green lipstick.  As always, I’m wearing my rectangular, black glasses.]

I thrifted this nice American-made H. Freeman & Sons sport coat a couple of weeks back for $15 (no alterations needed) and am looking forward to wearing it once it cools down some around here. I don’t know how old it is (my guess is the early 2000s?) but it has some nice details like full canvassing, a lightly padded shoulder, soft 3 roll 2 lapel, and double vents. Pocket square is from Drake’s.
