MY THRIFTED OUTFIT cold july

Ok it hasn't been cold this July (I am in California...) but it did start out colder than usual. And of course when we finally hit over 100 degrees, a fire broke out. Robbers Fire. This outfit is entirely thrifted, top to bottom. None of my usual style either, but each piece I just loved and had to have. I wish you could see those shoes. They are pure pearlecent sequin. Oh yes. (And yes, I made up that word. Go with it.)

See that model pose? Oh yea fashion model for sure! (Don't bother rolling your eyes- I'm already doing that for you!!) -and no, the dog wasn't thrifted, but blurry or not still a cute shot of him!

What I'm Wearing:
Top: Brittany Blade originally $30-I paid $4 at Discovery Shop Auburn
Jeans: American Rag Originally $45+-I paid $2 at Piece by PEACE Auburn
Purse: No name- I paid $5 at Goodwill Roseville
Heels: Caparros Originally $70+- I paid $5 at Goodwill Roseville
Bracelet: No name-I paid $.50 at Goodwill Roseville
Earrings: No name-I paid $.50 at Assistance League
My Thrifted Outfit Total: $17 (Originally worth over $145!)

I love American Rag jeans, and even though I hate flares, I had to have these. I originally intended to make them into shorts, but I may refit them into bootcut pants. But for $2, who can pass them up?! The top isn't my usual style either, but I saw it for two weeks at the shop before trying it on. Every time I grabbed it but put it back, finally I tried it on it was too comfy to set back down! The sequin heels were purchased for last New Years, $5 for pure fun! The purse was not something I'd normally pick up, but I couldn't resist its vintage cuteness! And truth be told, I use it all the time and get compliments everywhere I go!

I take no credit for these glamorous photos! Taken by my mother, whom I'm currently teaching photography to! Cropped and edited by yours truly, and unfortunately that 15 year old looking kid is me (although I'm 24 not 15)!

  3. You're rocking the thrifted outfit. I never even look at the thrift store clothes because I'm too busy trying to find junk! You found some great items. Thanks for stopping over at Quirky Vistas and taking the time to leave me a comment and follow! I do appreciate it, and I'm now following you as well.
