WOW - it's been a looooooong time since I've been on YouTube - especially with a thrift haul! It feels good to be back. Thank you guys so much for your patience. I have had quite a rough year and I really needed to take a step back to take care of myself. Days are still really difficult, but I have missed sharing on this channel very much and it feels so good to edit and post a new video all about the frivolous joy of thrift shopping.
I AM SO EXCITED to share this fall inspired thrift haul. Let's be real, it's the best time of the year! And if you read that in your head like Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle then LET'S BE BEST FRIENDS.
You're going to see upcycled denim jeans, boho blouses, fall dresses and even a few surprising accessories. Be sure to watch the video to see all the rad things I got for such a good deal - I'm talking like less than $5 for each item!
Because I can't link the thrifted items in this video (hello 90's dresses and old UO) I thought it would be fun to find a few similar pieces that I consider great alternatives (unless you go thrifting for similar pieces of course *wink wink*). Check out the staple pieces I've added to my wardrobe for this fall below!
HIGH WAIST DENIM JEANS
I'm loving this ethical brand and just ordered this pair of pants for myself! I'll report back on the fit but I've heard they fit true to size and have a nice stretch to them.
BLOUSY SHEER TOPS
If I'm not thrifting, I love to browse Old Navy's clearance racks for blouses! My secret to an effortless boho blouse is to purchase a few sizes up so it hangs blousy and flowy on my frame.
This is a staple print for all seasons, tbh. But it's such a fun and natural color scheme to add to your fall colors! Looks great paired with every shade. I love this and this.
FALL COLORED DRESSES
Again, if I'm not scoping out the racks at my local thrift store, I love to check out Urban Outfitters or Asos for inspiration. I think something like this or this would be great for the fall.
A BOLD HEAD WRAP
Luckily the head wrap in my video was NOT thrifted (shhhh, don't tell)! This is good news because I can share with you exactly where I got it and who made it.
Check out their selection here.
I hope this has given you inspiration for your fall wardrobe! If you are on a budget or just like to hunt for one of a kind goodies, then definitely try thrift shopping! The links above are a mixture of vintage, ethical brands, big box stores and even handmade pieces. Who knows, before you get to shopping you might just take a quick glance at your closet. You might even have these pieces already!
This thrift haul is long overdue, y'all. Again, thank you for your patience, support and outpouring of love here on this blog, my channel and my Instagram. Many of you I am proud to call friends now and I'm so, so grateful for you. Thank you. I love y'all and I can't wait to make more videos and get to know you all! Let's be friends!!! No, seriously. Let's be friends.
HAPPY FALL, Y'ALL! Let's bust out the pumpkins. My body is ready.
I'm Alyssa, thanks for stopping by! A few things: I enjoy laughing, making youtube videos and thrift shopping. Currently listening to "Everything Now" by Arcade Fire. I like my coffee black and my preferred method of maxin' & relaxin' is with my husband and pup.
