Thrift Gold

5.03.2012


{ Thrifted top & bracelets; F21 skirt & belt; GoJane.com wedges; gifted sunnies }

This top is probably my faaaaavorite thrift find ever, and it was such a chance encounter! I was getting the Green Goblin (AKA my car... yes, I'm one of those people) fixed and had to wait an hour, so instead of going home I just went to the thrift shop across the street. I don't own anything gingham printed, so this piece seemed too good to be true!

Please note that I have absolutely no skills in sewing or knitting. In fact, it's probably safe to say I shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a needle and thread let alone a sewing machine. Therefore, unlike other thrift experts, I have to buy used clothes that actually fit me otherwise it's a no-go. So yeah, this top was deinitely a "SCORE!" moment for me! I didn't even notice the back detail until I took it home, but it just made me love it even more! Not bad for five bucks, huh?

  2. Great find, Rachel! I have been searching for a gingham top for months without any luck. I can do some needle and thread sewing, but I'm not very good at it and try to avoid it at all costs. haha. Definitely not bad got $5! And it looks great with that skirt, too!

  12. Love the top girl! A lot (ok most) of my thrift finds go into the to-be-altered pile, but it's soooo convenient when you find something that actually fits perfectly! A rare and AWESOME thing indeed.

    PS my last car was Mean Green. They could've been buds, just sayin (:
