The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I don’t always share my thrift finds in a separate blog post, but I wanted to share this weekend’s, because it’s spring, a time when many of us may be looking to add some fresh items to our wardrobe for multiple reasons, including expanding our re-mixing options, or body changes. I fall in both categories right now, needing both some color and some smaller clothes.
I only have one shopping rule right now (other than not over-spending, or getting clothes I can’t mix and match) and that is buying no black. Well, I broke it immediately for a $3.50 black jacket that is much closer fitting than any I own, and I can use to add professional polish to my beloved sun dresses for warmer weather.
|Cream Jacket ($12.00); Phoebe striped jacket ($13.50); Navy print full skirt ($10 ); Old Navy striped full skirt ($11); Black fitted jacket ($3.50)|
I am excited about the details on the Phoebe jacket, including the coral buttons and pink zipper pockets, and think it will be a great mixer for summer.
I don’t have any light colored jackets at all. This one is not white, but cream, which will also upgrade my favorite full-skirted sun dresses for work.
There are also a pair of Loft size 2 dark denim trouser jeans hidden under the other clothes, scored for $11. I was willing to buy a new pair on sale at the local Loft store for much more (you know you need trouser jeans for the days you’re too lazy for summer leg maintenance), but they didn’t have any that fit me. The thrifted ones are incredibly soft, and of course, much less expensive, so I’m a happy thrifter!
Scored any great thrifted deals for the office lately?
