Better Late Than Never


Blazer: Vintage Levi's, thrifted, $1.50 // Shirt: H.I.P. via TJMaxx, $12 // Skirt: Vintage, thrifted, $6 // Shoes: Seychelles, $30

I came this close to giving up on my local Goodwill. The selection had been so poor for so long, that I went from checking in at least once a week to not going at all. On a whim, I decided to try my luck once again last weekend. Though I didn't find much, I did score this high-waisted leather mini that fits like a glove. It would have been great to have three months ago, but I'll take it!

sweet score! it looks amazing on you.

i've had the same experience thrifting. sometimes it's good to take a break from a place for a while to wait for them to get more inventory in.

Fantastic! This outfit is awesome. You look great. And the skirt fits you great. I actually have a photo up of myself in a high waisted leather skirt currently!! I think this is the perfect season for donning leather and tights!

I love the contrast of the flowery shirt with the leather skirt. It looks beautiful!

love the tights. also, black with navy seems to be becoming a thing. i did it yesterday and i think i remember rebecca (clothes horse) doing it a few weeks ago. rules are made to be broken i guess.

Great skirt! I just got one similar to that from Forever 21... I still love Goodwill but the ones near me are much smaller and the selection isn't great so I haven't been going as often either. Plus, I can often score something for just as cheap at Forever 21 :S

So pretty on you! It's the perfect length. I live right next door to a Goodwill, and it's been crappy lately. Such a bummer.

i feel the same way about the goodwills in my hometown. but, i also feel that if i wait too long, someone's going to get the piece that I needed!

Great outfit!! :D And I know just what you mean, sometimes thrift shops can be so irritating if you can't find anything good. But it's amazing when the perfect item shows up! :D

that's an amazing skirt! my goodwill never has great things like that! and i love your tights.

Lexie said...

i get frustrated with my goodwill frequently because the prices are so dang high! i understand it's for charity, but really, the people who shop at goodwill do so for a reason!

Victoria said...

Gah! Our Goodwill DOES suck. I went this past weekend as well and scored a perfect pair of low-top black Chucks in my size as well as an oversized black and white striped sweater. Your leather skirt was quite the find!
