Thrift Stylish: 4 Wardrobe Updates for Under $20

Disclosure: I received a Goodwill gift card to purchase the items in this post.

Its the time of year where I am itching to totally revamp my closet. The only problem is, I am really picky and I can usually only get one or two items at a time if I go mall shopping. Thankfully, my favorite Goodwill here in San Antonio is not too far away and I have been slowly transforming my closet with great pieces that are affordable, but don't look it!  Ya'll know I am always finding amazing stuff at the thrift store!
So, what if I told you I got an Anthropologie skirt, a Trina Turk skirt, a White House/Black Market dress and another dress for less than $20. $19.04 to be exact (incuding tax!!)?! The approximate retail value on a White House/Black Market dress ALONE is $150 (and don't get me started on the Trina Turk prices, where tops run approximately $220!)
Oh, and while I was at Goodwill finding all of these treasures to update my closet, I saw Prada sandals, Gucci sandals, and BRAND NEW Cole Hahn loafers. I kid you not. For $7.99!! I don't need shoes right now, and the Gucci sandals were too big, so I kept my focus on dresses and skirts. Laser focus, my friends, laser focus.....

Ok, now for the fun pictures!

First up are the skirts. The blue and cream circle skirt is Anthropologie, and the black and white one is Trina Turk! These skirts were $2.99 each.


Next up is the White House/Black Market LBD with cute kick pleats and a stand up collar. This would look great with a leopard print belt! $5.99
And last, just for fun...I usually don't buy Forever 21...but this dress was too cute to pass up. $5.99

I am so excited about my new treasures. Who knows what I will find next!
Have you found anything awesome lately?
