if you follow me on instagram, then you may have seen that i went on a little thrifting expedition with adam a couple of weeks ago. i’ve been spending so much time thrifting lately, that savers must have noticed, because they asked me if i’d be interested in taking their $60 challenge. if you hadn’t already guessed it by the name, the challenge was to pull together a fall outfit with $60 or less at a savers store. of course, i didn’t even have to think twice before i dutifully accepted the challenge and headed to the closest location in riverside, possibly the largest thrift store i have ever been to. it is filled with racks upon racks of clothing, shoes, accessories, furniture, housewares, etc. i stepped inside, plopped adam into the cart, and started digging. i usually start with the dresses and quickly scan the fabrics for colors and fibers that jump out at me. i’ve been on a major linen kick lately, so i was excited to almost immediately find this cool green pinafore. i probably haven’t worn anything in this shade of green since i was a kid, but this fall, it’s the color i’ve been wanting to try the most. that’s one of the reasons i love thrifting so much, it’s a really fun way to try something new without having to worry about spending more than a few bucks.
needless to say, i was able to pull together this cute look with plenty of extra cash to spend. i guess i’m kinda cheating because i didn’t do an entirely thrifted look, but i ended up leaving with a massive haul of vintage dresses, tops, and jackets that i’ll be having fun mixing and matching into my wardrobe for months. and in my opinion, that’s pretty much the best way to approach thrifting. you go in, find what catches your eye, and play around by incorporating it into your existing wardrobe.
