This is Why I Thrift: Volume 1-Prada, Zalo and Christian Dior

Prada size 38 neon tasseled ballet flats
Most of my favorite clothes, accessories, and home decor items are second hand/vintage/from a thrift store. 
I hope to share my thrift store buys on the blog as I find them with my tips about how to find the best items.  These three items were purchased at the Red, White, and Blue in Pittsburgh near McKees Rocks last Saturday. 

Thrift Tip: Look carefully behind the cash registers.  The "best" items are usually behind the counter.  Don't be afraid to ask to look more closely at something.  
Zalo needlepoint loafers
Christian Dior silk scarf
