BEST Clothing/Y2K Thrift haul (10 items for 10 dollars 💋)

As the stereotype goes, grad students are broke. That, and constantly talking about their dissertations. I’m here to tell you about how to improve the former (your brokeness) so that you can focus on the latter (your thesis). We all know I love thrifting, but recently, my thrift stores started to price their clothes like museum-worthy, abstract art. Why else would they try to sell an old shirt for $15.99?

Thus commenced my foray into the goodwill bins. I came armed with gloves, a thick mask, and a can-do attitude. This was mostly for fun, but I found some amazing pieces for a little under $1 each.

Some people in my religion cover their hair once they get married with a hair scarf. I wear them as accessories, but the history is interesting.

Marciano by Guess top for $1. Love it. Skirt, which was a bit of a fail, also for $1. I was the most excited for it, but it ended up being unflattering. If you guys have ideas of how to style it, let me know!
I also bought this designer bat. It’s by Reformation and currently drying in my bathroom. I tried it on and looked like Severus Snape. Someone please tell me how to wear this shirt/dress/cape?
Lastly, this stunning vintage tank top. I knotted the straps so that I could ask my grandma to alter them (they are currently too long).

Overall, I’m thrilled with what I found, especially for a total of $10.92! Something I’ve started doing is taking the clothing that I don’t wear anymore and leaving it in a bag in the alley labeled “free”. I no longer want to donate to corporations that mark up their clothes so much, especially since now, people who need them the most can’t afford them. It makes me happy knowing that instead, someone will be getting it for free!

Hi everyone! I started my doctorate in clinical psychology in fall 2020. A google search revealed that there are no current grad school blogs for psychology students. Anyway, I happen to know a girl who wants to document her journey to getting a doctorate (spoiler: it's me). Welcome. Hope you stay awhile!

  1. Ooh, I love these thrifting posts! That first dress looks super nice on you. I also like the guess shirt and headscarf! There are a lot of mennonites, and they also wear headcoverings when they get married. That makes it a little bit awkward for me to do so sometimes, lol.😂 I like the look of it though. I’m curious, what is the religion that you were referring to that sometimes does that?
    Looks like a very trip to the thrift store! 😀 Thanks for sharing!

    1. Aw, Rosy, I’m so glad! I love sharing thrift hauls. There are actually many similarities between our religions. I’m Jewish but not quite as Orthodox as the women who cover their hair upon getting married. I do, however, only wear skirts (except when I exercise at the gym). The hair scarf only covers part of my hair so maybe people will just see it as a fashion thing? 😂

  2. You made me LOL saying you thought you looked like Snape! You’re hilarious!

    As for styling the skirt… maybe a denim jacket with it? I never know what shoes to wear with long skirts, especially when it gets cooler out.

    Love this thrift haul. Like every thrift haul you do 🙂 The Goodwill bins are where it’s at! I’m always poking around in them (and praying I don’t accidentally pick up underwear again) and finding all sorts of gems at such good prices! Keep sharing your thrift hauls please!! They make me smile!
