thrifted color blocking - Thrift Sisters Link Up These fantastic skinny jeans are Hudson jeans.  I found these at a San Diego Goodwill for $14.99 (less, after my 10% military discount).  Yup, I’ll let that linger — $14.99 for Hudson jeans.  Hudson jeans start at $150!  This particular pair of Hudson’s are $220.  You know I screamed out loud when I tried them on and they fit like a glove.  These jeans will make anyone feel like a super star…guess that’s why they want $200+ a pair. thrifted color blocking - Thrift Sisters Link Up thrifted color blocking - Thrift Sisters Link Up Color blocking with my BCBGMaxazria red and black suede heels.  I actually thrifted the heels the same day I thrifted those Hudson jeans at the same Goodwill.  Trust me, the Thrift Gods are real!  The price – $7.99 (less after a military discount).   I probably saved about $100 on those heels.
