MY THRIFTED OUTFIT garden edition

Now this is going to come as a huge surprise...but I am NOT a photogenic person. As a photographer by trade, I definitely belong on the opposite side of the camera. But that's a given. This months MY THRIFTED OUTFIT was inspired by a day of thrifting of course! And as always, everything seen was thrifted (even the table in the picture-but that's a different story)! 
 What I'm Wearing:
Top: Ambiance originally $15- I paid $3 at Discovery Shop Auburn
Jacket: Old Navy originally $45 -I paid $6 at Goodwill Roseville
Skirt: Fang originally $32-I paid $4 at Goodwill Roseville
Shoes: Miss Me originally $60-I paid $7 at Discovery Shop Auburn
Purse: (fake) Coach originally $40-I paid $.50 at a garage sale
Necklace: No name originally $10-I paid $2 at garage sale
Earrings: No name-I paid $1 at garage sale
Originally worth $202+, I paid $23.50!!!

Yes, you read that correctly-the Coach is fake and I only paid $.50! I get compliments everywhere on it, its big and spacious and a unique color! I find that sometimes its worth paying more for something if I find it worth it. Such as if its really comfortable, I've been looking for it for a long time, or I need it immediately etc. For example, the skirt and jacket were purchased for a photoshoot I was doing that day, turns out after the fact (and the failed photoshoot) I really liked the items and they stayed in my closet! The necklace you can't see, but its advertised as a bronze vintage jeweled owl necklace.

Remember to check out my thrifty clothes cleaning post to find out how to get your items in new condition again!

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)!

  9. Why don't you think you're photogenic? You look so pretty! And do not make fun of how young you think you look, this will serve you well when you are in your 40s, believe me. And I do need to check out those thrift stores when I am up near Roseville!! Now I have something to do besides sit and stare at everyone when I go with my b/f to visit his family, yay!
