trashy treasures


I got this skirt many moons ago at Goodwill back in Georgia and I actually don't think I've worn it since my VERY FIRST POST more than 2 years ago. I had completely forgotten about it until I was at Goodwill in California over the weekend, looking for some vintage trousers, and there was my same skirt looking back at me. Perhaps the same skirt at two different thrift stores should be a sign that I need to let it go, but instead I choose to believe that one woman's trash is another woman's treasure.

wearing: h&m tank, gap shirt, thrifted skirt, matiko wedges, clutch unknown, f21 necklace, mom's earrings, michael kors watch, gifted bracelet from italy, opi polish in suzi takes the wheel
worn to: church

  1. But that skirt is so cute, I don't think you should give it away!!
    I had a pair of pants from H&M that I loved but it got to small and I sent them off to be thrifted years ago. I went to the thrift store a few months ago and found the same pair of pants in my current size. I was so happy to be reunited. :)

  5. I have had that happen to me too, but I feel the same way that you do. If you like it, keep it! I personally think it looks great with the chambray top tied up and those amazing wedges!

  15. The style of women shoes are fascinating, to say the least. Hardly appear to be "shoes."
