How do you score yourself some Prada on a budget?
Get your thrift on baby!
I found a Prada dress while thrifting a few weeks back at Talize.
Generally I don’t even bother looking at the black dresses when I thrift because I’m not attracted to them but this time as soon as the touched this material I knew it was different. When I pulled out the piece and spotted the bright gold and red zippers I thought it might be a cool 1980’s punk dress. As soon as I spotted the Prada tag I snapped it up in my arms without saying boo. I didn’t need to alert anyone around me to my amazing find.
When you discover something insane like this you keep it on the down low till you leave the store then you shout it from the rooftops until your voice gives out.
I had my doubts I’d even be able to get this dress on but the stretchy fabric was forgiving enough to allow me to see what wearing a piece of Prada would feel like.
What does it feel like to wear a Prada dress?
It feels pretty damn sexy.
The dress is simple with classic clean lines but unique enough to leave a bold impression.
Prada On A Budget
The long side zippers are fully functional which is pretty cool.
This is the highest end brand I’ve ever worn. I’m not a label whore although I do recognize their resale value. I probably would have kept this piece for myself if it were more my personal style but I don’t have a hard time passing this onto someone that’ll love it more than I do.
This Prada dress is now listed in my Etsy shop which will reopen on April 25th.
If you thrift what is the highest end brand you’ve spotted? Did you buy it? Did you sell it? Did you keep it and wear it with pride?
If you don’t thrift what the heck are you waiting for?

Grow old and go bold.
With age comes wisdom.
The older I get the more I realize I know so very little.
So unlike when I was 17 and knew it all!
Another birthday is soon on the way and having spent almost a full year past the big “five oh” mark I’m ready to give up all my vintage and thrifted clothing and turn to mainstream fast fashion to fulfill all my consumer needs so I can finally fit in with everyone else.
I’m going to start doing loads of sponsorships on my blog with companies I used to despise.
I’m finally going to make some money as a mainstream blogger!
I wanted to see if you were paying attention!
Not gonna happen.
Not this year at least.
I’m old enough to know you should “never say never”.
Heck it wasn’t too long ago that I thought buying thrifted or secondhand items was akin to buying someone else’s garbage and I had no clue about vintage clothing or why anyone would want to wear it for that matter.
Now I’m a vintage
hoarder reseller and a thrifting pro fighter.
Being a vintage lover and a thrifter have ensured that the older I get the bolder I get.
Vintage dragon bell sleeve maxi dress?
Don’t mind if I do.
I’ve made it this far baby…bring it!
My style is influenced by what I find when thrifting or shopping vintage. Not by other bloggers, magazines or TV.
When you don’t play the same game as everyone else you can make up your own rules.
I was hoping to take this maxi dress on my trip to Hong Kong but my husband told me the temperatures are hovering around 30 C, more with the humidity. I have a feeling shorter silk dresses and sandals might be the best choice.
Style Confidence Over 50
Do you feel as you grow older your style is getting bolder? If so, why?
