I love prints — and finding them in a thrift or consignment shop is really exciting for me. I know for many people, prints can be really intimidating. However, I have to tell you, prints bring an outfit to another level for me. I found this beautiful print skirt at the Salvation Army for $4.00. The print is funky. The colors are gorgeous. The length is perfect. And the price is FABULOUS!!!!
I have said it before, but will continue to repeat myself. Trying out a new style or trying something out of your comfort zone is a lot easier when you purchase the pieces from a thrift or consignment shop. For one, if you enter a thrift shop you can probably spot so many trends, patterns, prints and styles in a few minutes. Second, if you do decide to try something new, you are surely not going to spend a lot. Lastly, if you do realize that trying new things are not always bad, you can always head back to the thrift store to find more items at a very reasonable price.
I added this cute “Hi-Bye” tee with the skirt. The blues in the skirt are identical to the blue tee which I purchased at Ross Dress for Less on clearance (of course :)) for $6.99. Such a cute tee, won’t you say?
Colorful print and colored tee, of course I needed to go with the nude pumps. I wore these nude pumps here before. These I.N.C. International Concepts pumps were a definite steal at Macy’s. Found in the clearance rack section, with an additional 30% off due to a close out sale, and a 10% off because I used my Macy’s credit card, I got these pumps for $14.00. Yes ma’am, SCORE! They are actually very comfortable with soft padding. I completed the outfit with some accessories which I also thrifted in various locations over the years.
