So I recently went to the thrift store, which was technically a consignment store, but I mean it’s all discounted clothes so does it really matter? ANYWAYS… as I was saying, I went to a thrift store and I found a few things that I wanted to share with you guys. I didn’t find a bunch of stuff but I don’t think anyone can go into a thrift store and go on a shopping spree. But, you always find the good stuff in a thrift store even if it was just a few things. So for me, this was exactly the case. I walked out with only three things this time around. Thrifting is always a nice way to spice up your wardrobe for a good price because honestly you never know what you’ll find while you shop!
When I first got to the store, I knew I wanted to and a couple new graphic tees so I headed right towards to mens section and looked through all the t-shirts. I ended up finding this Harley Davidson baseball tee kind of shirt and I knew I had to have it. I started thinking about how I wanted to style it and how I would cut it. After I purchased it, I went back to my dorm and cut the collar out so I could wear it as a one shoulder top. I also was going to cut the bottom off to make a crop top but I couldn’t fully commit so I decided to just tie it like in the picture if I ever wanted it to be a crop top. In the photo I paired it with some Steve Madden sneakers, a denim skirt from TopShop, and a faux leather jacket from Forever 21.
This next item I found by accident. I was walking by and I saw the plaid pattern and I’ve been obsessed with plaid lately, so I looked at it and at first I thought it was a skirt and then I realized they were shorts and I was even more intrigued. I have never seen a pair of shorts like this before and so I knew I wanted to try them on first just in case it didn’t look right on my body. Once I tried them on it was crazy how nicely they fit, they are super high waisted which I love and make a good statement piece. I wish I knew the brand of the shorts but the tag was ripped off so I have no idea :(. I decided to pair them with a black turtle neck (from Forever 21) because it’s a little chilly in Arizona right now but could be worn with a leather jacket or denim jacket too. I wore my black & white Old Skool Vans along with a simple gold horn necklace which is also from Forever 21.
This last item is probably one of my favorites because I have been looking for a loooong time for some sort of chain belt but I couldn’t find one I really loved and was willing to pay like $30 for sooooo when I found this I knew I was going to buy it. The price was so affordable and definitely a good item to have to spice up any denim look. I paired it with a tan knit sweater from Hollister, the same TopShop skirt as before, and the belt has blue gem looking things in it which I think looks super cute with these light pink Steve Madden slip on sneakers.
Thanks for reading guys, I love you all! I have been trying to post once a week and so far I’ve been on track with that, so stay tuned for a new post next week! ♥
