Check Out Apneet’s $1 Fashion Steals

The Salvation Army in Chelsea has a massive sweater sale going on this week: all stock is up for grabs for $2. And on Wednesday, when I stopped in, everything was half off! I snagged a couple of knits for a dollar a piece. With spring officially here, it’s time to switch from jackets to knits. Check out the transitional pieces I found to incorporate into my wardrobe.

I was thrilled when I saw this sweater on the rack. It’s a classic ’80’s vintage Lacoste sweater. This style is relatively easy to find, and I’ve seen them in a rainbow of colors. I like the oversized fit in this knit, and it’s the perfect thing to throw on for a casual school outfit.

While I continued to dig through the sweater racks, I found this geometric print crew neck sweater. I paired it with printed shorts for a fun, easygoing look. To complete the outfit I added a pair of Doc Martens and my favorite sunglasses.

Last but not least, I found this remade vintage piece at Buffalo Exchange. It is reconstructed from vintage fabrics. I was attracted to it because it reminds me of moss.

*Local favorite Housing Works is hosting another one of their popular “Buy the Bag” sales on March 24, 31, and April 7,14, with more dates in the future. It works like this: you pay $25 for a ticket, and Housing Works gives you a bag to fill up with clothes and accessories from their warehouse in Long Island. Clothing ranges from items that need to be laundered or repaired to designer items. Tickets usually sell out before the event begins, so head on over to their website to grab one.

What are you wearing on these winter-to-spring days?
