A Diamond in the Rough...

Ok so this was taken that day back at the thrift store… Now, I know this outfit is nothing special…I put it together in literally 30 seconds. The reason why this pic is making it onto the blog is because of the purple skinny jeans. Over the years I have tried on hundreds of pairs of skinny jeans and I never can seem to find a pair that fits quite as well as I want them too… That is until our little trip to the thrift store.

The best part is that they were $3.99! Now I know what you are thinking…SWEET DEAL! But it gets better… This pair of jeans had a little red tag, meaning it was part of the 50% off sale..meaning they were only $1.99! I dare you to try to find a pair of purple skinny jeans that cost less than that. If you do, points to you. Don’t get me wrong, I know the importance of buying quality pieces of clothing rather than quantity, but every now and then I recommend venturing over to your local second hand store and you might be lucky enough to find a diamond in the rough.

Just in case you are curious, the jacket only cost $5.99. To be honest, this was a little more on the pricy end for the thrift store. I didn’t buy it. It’s obviously too big for me. However, I liked the idea of it. Very 90’s grunge.

Wow that's an awesome deal. It seems like all of the thrift stores where I live have raised their prices and jeans are like 10 bucks and jackets are like 20 or 30 sometimes. That's pretty sweet if $5.99 for that jacket is the pricy end for the thrift store. I've got a similar colored pair of purple jeans but the back pockets are embellished with ugly metallic purple stitching so I won't wear them until I rip that crap off.
