thrifty thursday: gucci on the free

For the past month ( ok, like 2 or 3) we've been obsessing over loafers. We know, right? A shoe without *gasp* a heel? Yes, this flat foot thing has historically not been us, however, we can't get enough of them. So imagine our sheer delight ( yes, we did a little woo hoo!) when we stumbled upon a fabulous pair of the Italian leather grade, Gucci no less, for free? Wait. Where, what and how?

At UpShift (um, of course?), one of our new favorite local gems in town.  For a $20 donation ( okay, not exactly free, but basically) you get to unload a bunch of your old digs ( read: no longer worn and gently used clothing, accessories, what have you) and exchange them for whatever you fancy in the fully sustainable boutique, which local designer and merchandiser, Lindsay Leno, started in her home.... um so #totesamaze, right? Yes, it is. If you're in Madison, you definitely need to check it out.

Perfect for today's thrifty thursday, here's a shot of our  basically free Gucci loafer's ( a bit MJ, but we think they're rockin. No?) Throw in some bangles, an H&M striped tank and our Grandmother's old Timex and we're out the door.


We just love a good thrift find, don't you?
Scored anything good lately??
