I thought that with April came spring. But this last snow that we 've been getting makes me feel like I should be bundled up with my mittens, hat pulled down to my eyes, and coat zipped up to my nose. No exaggeration, the weather has truly been that cold.
I wanted to showcase some outfits that have been thrifted in its entirety, from head to toe. Throughout the spring season, I will be posting outfits on #thriftedthursdays that are almost completely thrifted.
People often ask me where do I get my clothes and shoes and 8/10 it's from Valluevillage. I spend time walking and sifting through the racks to see what great finds I can place in my cart, try on and see if they are going to work for me. The key for me is definitely trying on all items and constantly popping in to see what's new.
Lets check out the outfit.
This kimono-style top caught my eye when I purchased it a few months ago. I'm not really a girl to wear the colour red, but I thought I'd step outside my comfort zone. I was seeing similar tops in Winners and Marshalls. When I compared prices and saw this piece for $3, I thought why not take the chance. The neutral shaded shirt underneath was something I had picked up at one of my many trips to just to expand the hues in my wardrobe. It came in handy for this particular outfit.
These jeans are one of my favs. It has a little stretch, but they fit comfortably and can be worn day or night. I really love the wash and cut.
The shoes were purchased for $6 and were in excellent condition. Aldo shoes are always a safe bet. Although the heel is a little lower than I usually go for, I needed to add a red shoe to the collection.
This outfit is one that I would wear on a casual evening out to dinner with a girlfriend or even a date with my #boothang since red is his colour😉
I love to save money anyway I can especially on clothes. I want to do more travelling and creating memories with my loved ones. Remember you don't have to break your pockets to look great. Stay tuned to Thursdays to check out my awesome thrift finds.
Happy Friday JR!
