I want to gush again about how much I like Savers thrift store, where items are sorted by size. I only go once every few months, and have “finds” just half the time, but those finds usually become cherished pieces. Even after factoring in dry cleaning and possible alteration costs, you can’t beat the value of quality thrifted pieces (look for materials like wool and silk) that no one else will have!
I picked up this wool skirt (nice texture, fully lined with generous pockets) for just $5, and it’s on it’s way to becoming a chic little Fall mini. Move over, $80 mainstream J.Crew minis that require a small fortune in alterations! I couldn’t believe the waist was on this size 4 skirt. Can you picture the “after” yet? Or are you too distracted by my Amish semblance : )
