When It Rains, I Thrift!

Has anyone else noticed that rain deters people from shopping?!  I did, and I used that to my advantage this weekend!

I scored some divine pieces this week on two of the nastiest rain-filled days:

Vintage vintage vintage! I can’t get enough and this perfect accordion pleated skirt has the Union Made tag and $1.50 price to prove it belonged in my closet.

This roomy pintucked/crotched tunic was hidden amongst ratty white t-shirts. It had no stains, tears or tags! Perhaps another perfect vintage find?! Of course I can’t leave this garment in its prestine state, because white never stays ! I plan to dye this a dark royal blue with dye from Dharma Trading Company.

Saw this and thought: Gold grommets! I plan to buy a 3/8th” grommet kit from the hardware store and line the lapel with them….soooo excited for this d.i.y.!

The Navy is a part of the U.S. military, right?! Sooooo, I should be able to get away with this Nautical jacket in the fall. Especially if I wear all a tight black tank, black straight leg pants and a small gold clutch!

I have looked for a wool pencil skirt in this color for so long…and I bought this one for $1.50! I think it could got very well with the tan jacket above.

I can’t wait to rip apart, sew back together and dye my thifted pieces! As always: Keep it thrifty!

Trousers!

I’m falling for Fall! Autumnal fashion trends abound! Another one I picked up on is: Menswear!

I’ve never been interested in what mall clothing stores offered for this trend, but thrift stores have supplied almost every need! Check it ouuuut!:

I feel like I’m missing something…some ties perhaps? Or a boxy jacket?…Maybe embracing this trend could also mean to embrace the simplicity of menswear in my own wardrobe.

Such as this fall/winter thrifted outfit that features the rose suspenders for menswear, black skinny pants and boots for the red and black combination trend! Check it ouuut:
