Thrifting enables me a few things:
- Get my weekly shopping fix CHEAP!!
- Use my imagination and creativity when shopping for clothes.
- Have my own personal unique wardrobe, full of things from many different eras.
- Did I mention it was CHEAP?
Every Wednesday I will post my thrifty finds here with my thoughts about whether I should leave them as-is, if they require a little DIY action, or if I should have left it hanging on the rack! I fall helplessly short in the DIY category and I am making it a goal in the next 100 posts to get better at it. It is my hope that all of you DIY guru's will help me in this quest by offering up your insane creativity reguarding dye, alterations,embellishing, and all that other fun stuff I know NOTHING about!
With all that said, Here are my finds for the week. I was so pumped to be able to find blazers that actually fit me. All summer I've been looking for some and until now they have all been sz 14 or 2XL! The burgandy will be perfect for that casual dress up the jeans afternoon, and the cream one with the awesome buttons an roll-up sleeves...I'm in love! My thoughts are that the blazers and the sweater vest are wear as-is items, (unless you all have better ideas) but the dress is in need of some DIY! I immediately was drawn to the simple pattern and the vintage look and feel it has. I am not sure about the length of the sleeves or the length of the skirt....what do you think?
TOTAL SPENT: $4
Check out the detail on the sleeves and the sweet buttons!
I'm sorta loving the worn in, beat up look of these buttons..
Whatcha Think? Ideas please!!!!
