She struck gold and found some banging designer bargains.
Amongst her haul were some insane vintage Prada heels for $35 and Dior sunnies for $22.
Lilly Bear (@lillyybearrr) could hardly conceal her delight.
The response to her post has been crazy attracting 723,000 viewers and over a thousand commenters.
“I swear the thrift Gods knew it was my birthday this week because they really popped off today,” she said.
There’s no predicting what magic you will find in a thrift store, but she sure found some.
She could not believe her luck in finding these vintage Prada kitten heelsTiktok/lillyybearrr
“I started in the shoe section and the first thing I found was these insane vintage Prada kitten heels,” she said.
“They have the most insane gold buckle hardware, and they’re just perfect.”
A veteran thrift store shopper, Lilly knows how to sort the wheat from the chaff in fashion terms.
In the lingerie section, she found an “adorable Victoria’s Secret mini slip dress.”
She had to have it. “It’s the perfect pink and purple floral and I just thought this would be so cute paired with some kitten heels,” she added.
Her designer haul wasn’t over yet and she found bargain number two in the accessory section.
“Something pink caught my eye and I screamed over these,” she said holding up a pair of “insane pink Dior sunglasses. I’m obsessed.”
They were another bargain and she grabbed them.
“At $44 I was so excited and then it turned out they were half off as well so I got some new Dior sunglasses for $22.”
In the dress section she spotted a black silk dress.
“It’s the most gorgeous vintage silk, black beaded, halter midi dress, and it just has the perfect bias flowy fit,” she said.
Her next find was less designer and more comfort.
“In the jacket section today I found this little Cherokee jacket, super warm and cozy but also stylish and girly.”
Last into her shopping trolley she found a Louis Vuitton dupe.
“It’s a classic brown monogram bucket bag and at the price I paid, it doesn’t matter if it’s real or fake, it’s just a cute bag.”
Some commenters despaired at never finding any designer items in their thrift stores.
But others shared their amazing finds.
There was regret from one fan: “My thrift stores never have anything designer. I’d be ecstatic to find Prada and Dior.”
However, another had a similar experience to Lilly’s: “It was my birthday, ran out of black jeans, ran to the thrift store next to my house, boom, Versace jeans. Sensational.”
It was a similar experience for a third person: “I legit found Prada sandals at the thrift store the other day in my size. I died a little inside.”
And another fan of preloved clothes let viewers in on her tip.
“Find the richest areas near you and go to the thrift stores that surround them. I found a genuine Gucci speedy bag at Goodwill.”
