It’s still winter so I’m cramming velvet and sparkle into my recent ensembles to get it all out of my system in preparation for spring.  Something strikes me as “Upper East Side” about this blazer, though you wouldn’t know it from the price tag. In fact, this blazer is one of the spoils of a fruitful thrifting expedition made with Megan and Sarah over the holidays. We checked out Unique Thrift in Falls Church, which I’ve been hearing about for ages, but had never been to. For some reason, I had pictured it as a mass free-for-all and prepared myself to spend the afternoon rummaging through piles of questionable clothes. In reality, I found it to be very organized and I was hard-pressed to find holes or stains on the majority of the clothing (not the norm for most of my thrifting). I recommend all of you local readers check it out if you haven’t already!

That's an impressive thrift find! I'm so jealous that people can find such neat things at thrift stores– I usually come out empty-handed!

Your dress is amazing. I love how all the little knobs of color are smushed together in a wonderfully colorful collaboration of sorts! It looks great against your sheer tights. 🙂 So very pretty.

The 25% off is on Thursdays if you have a VIP card which you can't get on Thursdays.
I shop at Unique all of the time. They actually had a real fur coat for $150. Authentic vintage Coach bags for $20. I bought a Lauren Ralph Lauren long sleeved shirt for $5, a cashmere Gap sweater for $10, and a Calvin Klein dress for $15. It is massive so you have to take your time. My son goes to school next door so I love it.
LOVE the dress.

I wish we had a good Unique Thrift store in Chicago because the ones here are horrible. It smell terrible in them. Your blazer is a steal and great find.
