Over Thanksgiving Break, I went to the By-the-Pound store in Charlotte, NC with MTW. I got 14 pounds of stuff for $21. Here's it all piled on the floor.
Big old pile of stuff
While I was getting it all ready to wash, I noticed I'd bought pieces that made outfits. "Hmm, maybe I should make outfit posts of what can be found second hand" Here's outfit #1: Vintage Sears a-line skirt and Vintage Jessica's Gunnies, which is part of Gunnie Sac/Jessica McKlintock
The blouse is in the Gibson Girl/1900's style and would have been perfect on one of the maids in A Little Night Music from last summer. Note the leg of mutton sleeves.
"Polo? I got your Polo right here lady"
Both pieces are Polo Ralph Lauren. The pants are brand new, still had the store tag. The sweater is a wool/linen blend. Who's says you can't find nice quality clothes at a thrift store? Not this girl. Both of these outfit probably cost around $5. One of the reasons I decide to do You Got That Where is some people don't believe me when they ask me where I got an outfit. I get one of two reactions: Horror (I wear dead people's clothes) or shock( you got that where?) As Bella Q says: SHOP SECOND HAND FIRST!!!!!!
