Beauty via Thrift

Monday, June 04, 2012

One secret I haven't shared with you all is that quite often you can find great deals in upscale BATH PRODUCTS in thrift shops! I scored FIVE medium bottles of assorted shower gels at a SALE at a local thrift shop for (after the sale discount) @$.60 each! That's a lot of quality for $2!! You can also find deals on nice scented soaps - even sometimes shampoo and conditioner. So go look for those sorts of products in the thrift store - They are usually grouped together in one place...(Sometimes there might be makeup there, as well....and often these products have never been USED....You might find the odds and ends of a Mary Kay distributor's stash, for ex.)

ALSO, at the same sale, I scored for FIVE $5 dollars a sequin-encrusted jacket in a diamond pattern in black, gold and iridescent pearl!! It's 80's vintage - but fits great without shoulder pads (I checked).  This is the sort of item I can never resist & which I squirrel away until I find the occasion to wear it - thereby saving oodles on formal clothes, which I do have more cause to wear than the general population, perhaps, because I am an actress when I wear my other hat....Besides, it was just so Joan Rivers!! I love her style of great jackets and interesting jewelry over a plain pair of pants and a top. Watch Fashion Police!



So Joan Rivers??


No, it's Myrna Loy - but glamorous nevertheless
