Unique pieces, vintage and one of a kind with an occasional “this is at Jcrew right now!” type of items are what I look for. I took some inspiration from spring trends and gave it a twist (you can do that when you are a thrifter by the way.) I don't have a lot of these pieces, but these four pieces have become my go to pieces to remix lately! Summer is coming or well is here for some of us, but I wanted to highlight some of my favorite “thrifty” trends. I have worn them a couple of times and here is What I Wore!
A Bright Color Pencil Skirt
This bright yellow pencil skirt has been one of my all-time favorite go to pieces. This one in particular is vintage and cost me all of $1.50. While I love color skinny jeans, I didn’t love the price tag! So this was my alternative. I have over 5 different colors and I can’t wait to re-mix all of them. Don’t be afraid to try it..just keep the same styling rules for bright colors. Neutral heels always work and if you are scared of a patterns go for a solid for color blocking and knock out two trends at once!
Leather in Color
Lately I have been finding amazing blouses like this leopard one. The only problem is they are little big on me…believe me I am not complaining, but I just couldn’t pass it up…so I just tied it up in the front and VOILA! A high low blouse. Don’t pass it them up anymore! I have a neon one, a striped one and this one that I can’t wait to wear for spring!
Leather in Color
I have found the most vibrant colored leather skirts in my thrifting adventures…and at first I passed them up. I mean…leather and Vegas heat just didn’t seem like a good idea. But this one in particular is a vintage number that was really thin leather…lightweight and not warm at all…and coral? I have a bright neon green one, a black one, and I am on the hunt for an orange one! Another rule of thumb when it comes to thrifting …NO RULES…just say it is vintage…and it is ALWAYS in season!
A Patterned Skinny Jean
I know, leopard! Color jeans are all the rage ( haha I never say that...funny)..and I have a few pairs from F21 that I LOVE! But I really LOVE these leopard skinnies…a year ago you would have never seen me wearing these ridiculous animal print jeans…let alone skinny jeans…but paired with a t-shirt that is comfy enough to sleep in from Old Navy, and all of a sudden they are better than regular blue jeans! I just picked up a pair of yellow and grey leopard skinnies too!
