Today I chose a well-loved skirt that I purchased new on eBay. It's been worn many times and may be ready for retirement at the Humane Society Thrift. The cotton blouse is newly thrifted, and I like the pattern. I think I am going to relegate it to casual rather than work-wear though; the vibe is just not there for the office. The white linen vest was a jacket (thrifted) that I hacked. It's too big, so I borrowed Sally's (Already Pretty) tips and belted it into shape. I like the wide studded olive belt.
The wonderful Reva (Rags2Roses) had a post recently about trying out new poses, something she does very well. I stuck my baby toe in the water today. In the first pose, it looks like I love myself a little too much - but I am experimenting with showing off my bracelets -- really! In the second, I am but a dim shadow of splendid Sheila (Ephemera), who poses so gracefully on her steps. I look like I'm all feet : >
I know a lot of my readers are avid thrifters too. Do you ever think about looking "too thrifty"?
