Thrifting for a 2012 Wardrobe

Saturday has never been a day that I would venture out to go shopping.  Well, let me rephrase - after working retail for 17 years, I knew better than to go shopping on a Saturday, the day 'everyone else' had off.  But I couldn't help myself.  I was feeling a bit stir crazy and needed to feel the warm California sunshine against my face.  So I hopped in my jeep and headed to Crossroads Trading company off of West San Carlos and this is what I scored:

 100% silk J. Crew top in Chartreuse.
From Holiday 2009
Approximate retail value: $200.00
Purchase price: $12.00
This hip length top looks as good paired with a skirt as it does jeans and flats.

LuluLemon reversible Jacket.
Approximate retail value: $128.00
Purchase price: $11.00
This butter yellow jacket is solid yellow on one side and features polka dots on the other.

Ann Taylor strapless dress
Approximate retail value: $225.00
Purchase Price: $15.00
Heavy like tapestry.  The flowers are so tropical and the pleating at the empire waist line slimmingly draws the eye up as the flat gathering on the skirt covers any tummy concerns.

So I was running such a high from the deals, I headed over to their other San Jose location on Blossom Hill.

 This 100% silk Juicy Couture top still has the tag attached.
From Summer 2010
Retailing value: $188.00
Purchase Price: $22.00  
The most expensive item that I purchased!
From a denim skirt to white trousers - this will be a 2012 winner!

 Ok ok - I know it's soooo "old lady" but... it's
Yves Saint Laurent!!
Approximate retail value: $800.00
Purchase Price: $18.00
This high-waisted pencil skirt features side pockets.
The left pocket conceals the side zip entry and exposed white button.
I hear it screaming for a Spring Brunch with the girls!

So for $78 I came home with $1541 in new clothes.  How did you do?
