95% Thrifted

Wednesday, March 5, 2014

So for Nicole's latest What to Wear post the goal was 100% thrifted. Now I really wanted to go for this, but after taking a close look at my wardrobe I realized that I was missing kind of an important piece to make that happen: a thrifted top.

In my opinion, for my body and style, DC is just not a great thrifting city. It's hard to find options that aren't overpriced or too small or just wrong enough for me style wise to be impractical purchasing. I've managed to happen upon a few gems over the years though, so I thought that even if I couldn't make an outfit I could at least showcase the ones that have appeared on the blog!

Definitely don't miss out on the links post tomorrow - I'm sure those ladies are going to have some great (& 100% thrifted) outfits to share!

I love the combo of that yellow and green. Gorgeous!

I can't believe how challenging this turned out to be. I truly thought it was going to be a breeze. I guess I learned a lesson! ;)

@Gypsy - Haha I think it's a lesson a bunch of us learned - thrifting is hard!

having good thrift stores around you def can make all the difference. esp overpriced ones... ugh, annoying. i do have a good friend who hits up ones in little towns whenever she goes on day trips though, it's the best.

@Dus of Cuddly Cacti - if I did more roadtrips that's exactly what I'd do! I have a friend who always scores great pieces when she's up in Pittsburgh. I get so jealous!
