Stylemint $30 including shipping
I bought this from Stylemint back in the fall, intending to use up a Stylemint credit and get something cute for my vacation wardrobe. Turned out I didn't wear it in California. If you don't wear a light sweater in sunny warm California, chances are it won't work in frigid cold Canada. But I am committed to the challenge, so I tried!!!
The pieces themselves are good. Together, they are incongruent.
Finally I conceded that it looked plain old silly in -25 degree weather. I folded it up and put it away till summer. Moved on to sweater no. 2, a little something I picked up for $4.20 in honour of Black Out Style.... once again, I didn't wear it in January and here we are middle of February still not worn.
I must have been caught up in the thrifting moment because the fit on this is not good.
It hits at exactly the spot you don't want to draw attention to.
I even tried tucking in the sweater, tried it with several skirts. No go. It needs to go to someone else.
So there I was standing there naked wondering NOW WHAT? My grabber was gone. Then, duh, I remembered I could grab my own piece! So I grabbed this vintage blouse...
$4.20 at VV Boutique
So much better!
Paired with $3.50 GAP cord skinnies.
Mint and true green make me happy.
Scarf $4 VV Boutique.
So there you have it. Three tries to find a workable outfit. Two pieces under two circumstances (thifted vs. Stylemint) at two price points that I regret. Next time, I will take my time and pay attention to fit. Speaking of next time, what are YOU doing next Sunday? Want to join me Sunday for "the $40 Thrift Shopping Championship." Check out details on Instagram or Facebook.
Hope you can make it on Sunday!
I need to redeem these thrift shop regrets!!
