My mom used to take us thrifting every once and a while when I was younger, but as I started to get older brand names suddenly became SUPER important and I pretty much stopped thrifting items- unless it was last season's abercrombie or hollister, etc. I've really gotten into thrifting the last few years though and found some great stuff. Of course, you have to keep in mind, I'm the type of person who looks at an incredibly ugly oversized grandma dress and says, "I see potential!" Despite that, I've still managed to find some wonderful items that didn't need large amounts of TLC to make them wearable. One of the most recent examples of this is this vintage(?) leopard print skirt I got at the local salvation army for $2. Such a steal! So there mom, when you thought all I brought home was more work than it was worth- Here is an example you were wrong :)


  1. I was totally the same when I was younger. I grew up on mostly thrifted items, so when I was in HS and college and brand became super important I totally stopped thrifting too! Now I think I've finally struck a good balance between new and old things! It looks like you have too--this outfit looks awesome!

  2. That blouse! I think I'm in love. Love the color and the ruffles. It was the perfect top to pair with that leopard skirt. You look amazing.

  3. I love thrifting: although I haven't gotten anything substantial yet! I love the leopard mini and the whole look, I love the earth tones colors on all your pieces, it just looks so polished!

  4. This is a great find...I love how you worked it in with that gorgeous blouse! And I admire your mad ability to rock tighs and a skirt in the freezing cold. Seriously.

  5. Definitely a great thrift find. It is a little daunting to dig through racks of bad clothes just to find something cute, but it's definitely worth it. Love your blouse too, the ruffles are great.

  6. Awesome thrift find. Love your outfit. Very chic.


I love hearing from you; thank you so much for stopping by :) Leave me a link so I can visit you too!
