Today I’m sharing an outfit entirely of pieces that were thrifted during the challenge this summer, and my story of going back to the mall :)
Last week in celebration of finishing the 2nd hand pledge, I ventured to the mall to spend some gift cards I’d been holding onto until the challenge was over.
My first (and last) stop was F21 and to be honest, I was pretty excited to do some shopping. I walked in, found a couple of things, and wandered around the store for a bit. The music was loud, the lights were bright, and that new clothes smell was in the air. Suddenly it all just felt overwhelming and foreign.
Geez, no wonder prisoners find it hard to assimilate back into society after years away, I thought. Should I be comparing myself to a felon? No, definitely not. Am I a dork that thinks about this kind of stuff? Definitely :) But, bottom line, I knew I wasn’t ready for the mall. I put the clothes back where I found them and fled for the door.
Today I tried it again. This time was easier and I found some really cute things. But you know what felt good? Not buying any “maybe” pieces. I bought a few things that I really like and didn’t talk myself into any trends outside my comfort zone or any slightly awkwardly fitting pieces.
top, skirt, belt, shoes: thrifted
earrings: gift from my besty
Aren’t these the coolest earrings ever? They were a birthday gift from my besty a couple years ago and I love them to pieces.
Who else is excited that the weekend is here? I don’t have many plans and I like it that way! What do you have going on?This entry was posted in outfits and tagged 2nd hand challenge, outfits, t-store scores, vintage. ← Tour de Fat ’12 a car full of pompadours… →
