Nothing like a good thrift find. On my first visit to Denver last fall, my friends and I did some last minute speed shopping our last day there as we had heard about the how great the thrift stores were. I was pleasantly surprised at all the precious skirts they had at this particular Good Will. I probably bought 4-5 skirts and spent less than $20 (other items included.) Great victory was mine. This hot pink pencil skirt was one of them. I tucked my striped jersey dress beneath it, and added my neon yellow scarf for some unexpected color blocking. I know some of you already dwell in consignment shops, but to those of you who tend to stay away, I say take a chance! People give away the best stuff! Old skirts and pants especially were made with a quality that’s hard to match with out an equally high price tag nowadays. Think about all the once coveted items you’ve handed off over the years! There’s a 95% chance some hipster somewhere has it featured on their hip hipster blog. Beat the hipsters to the finds or better yet #takeyourowngrandpasstyle.
