Thrifters Can’t Be Choosers

There’s no bigger bummer than finding something you love while shopping and the store not carrying  it in your size. Okay, there are A LOT bigger disappointments than that, but just humor me, okay? When I first got into thrifting years ago, it became a steady stream of let-downs of something amazing not being able to fit me mixed in with a few highs of OMG IT’S ACTUALLY IN MY SIZE! I’ve learned to take the good with the bad, but every so often I tend to bend the rules a bit with a garment not my size and wear it anyway. YOLO (no?). The dress above caught my eye right away and I knew it was coming home with me–even though it was two sizes too big for me. I could have taken the L and just moved on to something that probably fit better, but what fun would that be? As my favorite TV star Tim Gunn always says, “Make it work.”
