I don’t know about you, but I think skinny jeans are the best things ever. Throw in a high waisted skinny jeans and I am in outfit heaven, because there are no limits to your fashion game. This week, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I are showing you how we weeerk our skinny jeans. Head over to Keren’s blog and check out her chic look, featuring denim skinny jeans.
I love these high waisted skinny black jeans. Thrifted for only $5.00 at a local San Diego Goodwill, they are my go to black jeans. In a previous post, I have explained that thrifting jeans can be difficult, but so well worth it when you find the perfect pair. I bought these jeans during one of my “jeans thrift” shopping trips. I call these my magic pair. High waisted skinny jeans tend to highlight certain midsection flaws. These, magically do not!
I wore these high waisted skinny jeans with this funky patterned crop top I picked up on the last San Diego Thrifting Bus Tour from Frock You Vintage. This crop top was $10 – a STEAL! It’s definitely a unique piece that garners a lot of compliments when I wear it. Who would believe it was $10 from a second hand consignment shop? And, yes, these photos were shot in early November — the weather is still that nice during the day in San Diego!
One of my coolest thrift finds are these Cole Haan gold loafers that I thrifted from Lost and Found Recycled Fashion in San Diego for $14.00. You can find a pair at Neiman Marcus for $110, but I would rather pay $14!
I completed this outfit with a gold clutch. A thrift tip for you is to search in bins throughout the thrift and consignment stores you visit. There is always something to be found hidden away. While perusing a local Salvation Army, I found a bin with a ton of clutches all for $1.00. I was very happy when I came across this gold piece. I am definitely one to wear my dressier pieces with non-dressy outfits. I know for some ladies, this clutch will only be worn in the evenings with a dress. But, take a risk and throw it in with the unexpected outfit. Fashion should be fun. Forget the rules — sometimes!
