That’s right ladies and gentlemen–today is National Thrift Store Day! An entire day dedicated to shopping secondhand? Count me in! To celebrate this glorious holiday, I partnered up with some other thrifters on Instagram to take on the $20 outfit challenge. I had no plan for my outfit when I started shopping, but soon enough it started to take shape, and I ended up with this 90’s inspired outfit.
The best part is, I came out under budget at $19.38!
To see the other outfits my fellow thrifters put together, search #nationalthriftshopday2015 on Instagram! Now, behold my fully thrifted ensemble: H&M t-shirt//Salvation Army//$2.50
Forever 21 flannel//SPCA Thrift Store//$4.90
Apt. 9 vest//Eco Thrift//$3.98
Mossimo jeans//Salvation Army//$3
Chinese Laundry booties//Goodwill//$5
When I spotted this dress on my way out the door at Eco Thrift, I nearly yelled out, “Are those polka dots AND stripes?! I’m going to need that!” I didn’t even try it on before I purchased it, but I knew I just had to have it in my possession. I love the full skirt, bold green stripes, and of course, the mixed prints. The vintage-inspired details begged to be paired with a sweet purse, big floppy hat, and pops of bright red. I donned my new outfit, and headed to a nearby park for some fun in the sun!
