If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently found two pair of Florsheim wingtips for only $8 each. Not only was I was shocked to find two pair of the same shoes in great condition and in my size, but since they retail for $180, seen here, they were definitely one of my most memorable thrift store finds of 2014. In fact, this year I have been extremely fortunate when it came to thrift store shopping, so I wanted to share some of my best thrift store finds of 2014.

Vintage Glen Plaid Suit 
This was actually the first suit that I tailored for myself. I remember finding it tucked away in the suit section of my least favorite thrift store, all wrinkly and disheveled. However, after tapering the trousers and a quick visit to the dry cleaners it turned out to be one of my favorites. Read the original post here.

Vintage Leather Bomber Jacket
Last but certainly not least, this is my favorite thrift store find of 2014. Similar leather jackets sell for $300-$500, but considering the fact that I only paid $9 for it made it even more special. Check out the original post here.
