Velvet Tank Dress//Sheer Floral Dress
Betty Boop High Waisted Shorts
Ralph Lauren Flannel//High Waisted Jeans
I'm like most college students: broke. I love fashion and do splurge on very nice things every so often but I LOVE a good thrift find. Now, once you get past the off-putting smell, and obscure mix of customers then gaze past that hideous 80's track suit.... you might just find that piece of clothing that makes it all worth while.
The other day I decided to make the 15 minute trek to the nearest Goodwill (and yes, I say trek because I hate driving so this is far for me) and found some great items. There is one item that most people hate but I simply adore... mom jeans. I mean, I could put those babies on, sit down and have a whole cake to myself and no one would even notice! Maybe.
I ended up spending $29 and walking out with a pair of high waisted mom jeans, high waisted shorts with a fabulous Betty Boop patch on the right bun, black velvet spaghetti trap dress, floral spaghetti strap dress, and a long sleeve sheet floral dress. I did find it a bit humorous that the quiet man behind me found my sheer floral dress to be, "a really cute top." Not sure if that was genuinely a nice compliment or a tad creepy since the whole thing is well..... SHEER.
Who's says you need to spend a ton of money to look great? I did however need to wash these items numerous times to get the smell out. When I have time I would love to go to the thrift stores in Seattle. That's where the real treasures are hidden.
