I never really know what to write about for thrifting thursday posts...like do I talk about where I thrifted the pieces? Do I mention the prices? I don't even know. Well this is what I wore yesterday and everything I had on was thrifted (kinda).
The vest was thrifted. It was originally a $3 denim jacket found in the kids' section of Value Village. I hacked off the sleeves and added a pair of collar tips. I actually did a post on turning the jacket into a vest in under three minutes. Thrift tip: find the perfect fitted denim jacket (to turn into a vest or keep as is) in the kids' section. Also, pieces found in the kids' section are generally cheaper.
Skirt? Also found in the kids' section at Value Village...for $3 as well. It is actually a Gap Kids skirt. I am a child. I was pretty surprised that kids' sizes at Gap ran this large. Maybe it was a maxi skirt for kids. I never really go for bright pinks, especially for dresses and skirts, but something about this pink skirt caught my eye. Maybe it was the pleats. Or maybe it was the fact that it has a nice chiffon layer and a silk-y slip material underneath. Probably both.
Lastly, the shirt. It says "born a bad seed"...'cause you know, I'm so badass. I eat cupcakes and wear pink skirts, complete badass material. I knew I had to have it when I saw it at the East Side Flea Market a couple months back. The girl(s) that make these shirts find old t-shirts and does the print on them. Hence why I'm a bit hesitant to say my entire outfit is thrifted. The shirt itself was probably thrifted though.
So there you have it. I like thrift stores and buying clothes from the kids' section. I also like cupcakes.
I actually really enjoy doing thrifting thursday posts - it's a bit different from the usual recipe/DIY tutorial posts in a sense that I don't really have to type out instructions and I can always use an extra excuse to make a trip to Value Village. So you can expect more thrifting thursday posts in the future : )
Until next time, happy thrifting!
