Thrifty Threads – Leather Shorts

Leather in the summer time? The two just didn’t seem to mix. However, I’ve been obsessed with leather shorts ever since my homie Danielle {aka The Style & Beauty Doctor} rocked a pair at a concert we went to last year. I’ve been on the look out for them at my fave thrift stores but never lucked up.

This week Loehmann’s invited me to an event and gave all bloggers in attendance a gift card. My Thrifty Threads 365 challenge only lets me wear new, non-thrifted clothing if it’s a gift. So I was excited when the first item I stumbled upon was a pair of leather shorts. Check out how I wore them along with my thrift store finds. And be sure to check back next week for more on what I found at the Loehmann’s event.

I found these fun necklaces at Housing Works. They were having a sale on all gold plated costume jewelry.

Thrift Tip: Always follow your favorite thrift store on Twitter, they normally announce last minute sales and discounts this way.

Pop of color with the oversized Nine West clutch and a fun animal print belt.

Of course I had to whip out my Steve Madden wooden platform heels.

Breakdown:
Shirt, Necklaces, Belt, Shoes: thrifted // Shorts: Romeo & Juliet Couture – gifted via Loehmann’s // Purse: Nine West

Week 51 of my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge {a full year where I only buy second-hand clothing} is down. Only 1 more week to go!
