This morning I had two realizations as I was rushing out the door to vote (if you haven't done so, git 'er done): One, I really like this outfit, and two, this outfit is head to toe thrifted (except for the watch). If you have read my Thrifter's Apologia, you already know how I feel about thrifting. Now, the lady in me doesn't like to talk numbers and brands, because it's my personal philosophy that the correlation between those things and style is not a direct one, and the images I post are meant to express my personal style and/or illustrate some fashion point I am making. I will break my code though, this once, and give you the fiscal facts (still no brands, désolé), in hopes that it will impel you to give thrifting a go.
Black wool coat - $15
Electric blue button down - $1.50
Black skinnies - $4
Black leather belt - $1.50
Black leather shoes - $5
Total - $27
And now, I have a challenge for you, my friends. Here it is:
Make an outfit.
Record the fiscal facts.
Send them to me (email@example.com or to Mary Boctor on Facebook).
And I will post them.
If you are a blogger, you can participate link up style.
