I had the itch to go thrift shopping sporadically last weekend. So I asked if the fam-jam wanted to come and we all hoped in the truck for the last few hours before closing at value village.
While there I thought of the game “chelseaasoflate” plays on her instagram: thrift and pass. I played this with everyone following on my instagram stories. It was a very fun interactive way to shop!
I decided this time to style the outfits I had in mind when I bought the clothes. So people reading my blog get a sneak peak before pictures are on my instagram profile!
First up is this Pant and Collar shirt combo. What’s funny is the the top was part of my thrift or pass stories and majority of people (69%) said pass on this top.
But I loved it, the top gives me tomboy/queer vibes in all the best ways. And paired with the bottoms it’s just a fun and relaxed look.
What do you think… were people just not seeing my vision?
I really lucked out with this Tuxedo coat from zara. This is something that I will wear all the time. I usually gravitate towards colour when searching through the racks or good fabric. That’s the reason you have to take it slow and steady while thrifting or else you can pass right by a gem. This item was a grey muted colour and slouchy looking hanging on the rack, but it’s a really classy-relaxed fit on.
Two of the items in this outfit are thrifted: the stripped flowy top and the jacket. I have been loving oversized clothing lately. Before I used to shy away from anything that didn’t show my shape because it made me look bigger. At this point in my life.. I really could care less. Thick and proud.
I also found this guess jacket for $30 in great condition. While trying this on, a lady stopped and took the time to tell me “nice.” Not sure if it was a nice find or it looks good… but I’ll take both or either. This shopping trip really was the day for jackets.
I also found two blouses and a pink blazer. But I think I’m going to do an outfit post inspired by legally blonde because it definitely gives me that hot pink vibes. So stay tuned!
