thrifty threads 365 challenge, shopping challenge I have a problem. A serious problem. For as long as I can remember, I’ve rarely, if ever, been able to wear white without getting a stain on it. I always manage to spill a drink, get an ink stain or rub up against something. Due to this, I stay away from wearing white.

But I decided to stop letting that fear keep me from rocking the fresh, crisp hue. While thrift shopping in San Francisco, I found a vintage Adidas tennis skirt I desperately wanted. It fit me perfectly, but it was white. But it was also crazy cheap {the threads at Clothes Contact are $10 per pound}. I bought it and I’m so glad I did.

I finally wore the mini with some bright additions while in New Orleans earlier this summer.

True to my clumsy nature, I ended up getting a stain near the hem, but luckily it came out.

Week 44 of my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge {a full year where I only buy second-hand clothing} is down. Only 8 more weeks to go!

  1. Love the whole outfit.  I shy away from white because I have the same issue – everything white I’ve ever owned ended up ruined.
