Thrifty Threads: Cut Off Shorts Meet Vintage Cut off shorts: I typically only wear them to the beach or on vacation but I switched it up a bit this time.

I took my go-to vacay shorts {I thrifted the jeans for $2 and then cut them myself} and paired them with a vintage find for a cool summer vibe.

If you’re trying to make something look less casual, jazz it up with anything colorful or statement making. It’s the rule of opposites: pair something super casual with something glam or semi-glam.

It was time for me to whip out this red vintage garment. It’s actually a plus size shirt, but I rocked it as a duster! One of the tips I offer in my book {Looking Fly on a Dime: How to Find Fabulous Fashion at Any Thrift Shop & Make the Cheap Look Chic} is to shop other sections of the store. No, I’m not plus size but I found an amazing plus garment I knew could and would work perfectly in my wardrobe.

The accessories were limited to two items but both packed a punch. This super long and beaded necklace is thrifted from Housing Works and my adorable purse is another thrift find, via Buffalo Exchange.
