I’m back with Thrifty Thursday today! I have a couple items that I’m excited to show you.
This top caught my eye on the rack, but then I immediately thought it looked weird. It’s a weird shape, there are boob pockets, and it has unnecessary ties on the back. The color and material were so nice, though, that I was tempted to try it on. It looks surprisingly good on! It’s one of those things that looks weird on a hanger but awesome on a person. It’s by LC Lauren Conrad and I got it for $3.62.
This Bass skirt was an exciting find. One, I love a good stripe. Two, I love this shape of skirt but it rarely looks good on me. I think the placement of the pleats is what makes it look better on my hip-y shape. I’m not really sure, though. At any rate, I was super excited that it fit and looked good! I got this for $4.69.
Thrifty Tip #5
This tip isn’t specific to thrifting, because it could apply to shopping in general. Don’t be turned off by the way something looks on a hanger. It wasn’t made to fit a hanger! It was made to fit a person. I know I’m guilty of passing on items on the racks simply because they don’t look good. I need to remind myself that most items look much better when you’re wearing them.
