Adventure Friday: Thrift Store Shopping in Burbank

Last night was Fashion Night Out in LA.  I opted out this year since I can’t really afford to go shopping and while boozing  & shopping is fun, too many inebriated people in a small store is just asking for trouble (I went to last year’s FNOLA so talking from experience).

Realized this morning I have a wedding to attend this weekend.  I had a closet full of clothes but it has been pared down from various Spring cleanings, clothing swaps and such.  While I do have some great outfits, they are either better for colder weather or hot weather or drinking a zombie in a tiki bar.

Thrift stores are not what they used to be.  They are few and far between, the good ones at least.  I opted to go to one of my favorites:  American Way in Burbank.  There’s free parking and a good selection.

Halloween Costumes

I entered the first section and noticed not only did the dress section include the random assortment of bridal gowns and summer dresses but there were some fairy tale-esque dresses and pumpkin outfits.  Never too early to get your Halloween Costume.  And if you don’t find it at American Way you can go down the street to It’s A Wrap.

After Rummaging through oodles and oodles of dresses I picked a few to try on.  Beware this thrift store has no dressing room, so dress appropriately and for me that means leggings and a tank top.  You can easily try on anything the less you have on and the easier it is to pull on things over your clothing.

I tried on these lovely dresses all under $10 and if you scroll down the American Way homepage you will find coupons and the days they have specials.  My total was $3.99 and as we speak the dress is being washed.

Please share in the comments some of your best thrift store finds and your fav thrift stores?

    My favorite thrift store is a local one called Community Aid. I have found some of the most unique pieces! Their 50% Wednesday sales are killer too.
