Thrifty Threads

It’s Friday, so you know what that means…another installment of Thrifty Threads, where I showcase my thrifted and/or cheap chic finds. No matter what the cost, you can always create a look that’s fun and fly.

You ever feel like you have nothing to wear? Or you’ve worn everything in your closet a million times before? Yeah, that’s what I went through last weekend.

I wanted to wear my comfy Banana Republic shorts (last seen here and here) with my fave bag (last seen here), my go to embellished sandals (last seen here) and my dangly earrings (last seen here).

Luckily I found a sheer, long sleeve shirt I hadn’t worn all summer. Tim Gunn’s voice echoed in my ear, “Make it work.” And that’s exactly what I did. I rolled up the sleeves and belted the waist for a look that was cute and comfy {or at least I think so}.

Breakdown:
Shirt: $1, via Goodwill
Belt:$1, via Goodwill
Shorts: Banana Republic, $1 via Goodwill
Sandals: $8, Strawberry
Bag: Nine West, $30 via Strawberry
Earrings and Bracelets: $5, via Flea Market

How do you guys give new life to the clothes you’ve worn over and over?

  2. I get like that all the time. You definitely are working this look. I love that sheer top and it works well with the shorts. I need to go thrift shopping with you.
