One thing I would love to do is go thrifting. The pieces I often love on my friends, strangers, or other bloggers, are always ones they thrifted. The reason I don't thrift? I am super squeamish and kind of freaked out by it. Slowly but surely, I hope to one day get over my fear.
So in the mean time, I will take baby steps, and practice "thrifting" at home.
My dad decided to clean out the walk in closet that him and my mom share last week, and I waited anxiously to see what gems would be unearthed from the depths of their closet.
And I must say, I did quite well.
I have been obsessing over pussybow blouses for a while now and was just giddy when I came across this top. The color is so bold, and the fabric is light enough that I can wear it now and not be too hot.
Another piece I have been wanting to add to my closet for summer. It has a slip lining which makes it impossible for me to fit into (so constricting), so I'm going to rip it out (cue Tim Gunn saying "Make it work!") and wear a slip underneath.
I also "thrifted" a faux fur floor length coat and a camel colored boyfriend style blazer.
What treasures have you found from other peoples "trash"? And if any of you have been hesitant to thrift at first, but have gotten over it, PLEASE share your tips with me :)
