Yes, I know I can sometimes make thrifting look super easy. It would appear that I can walk into a thrift shop and always find something cute, unique and of course, at a great price! For the most part, I do find thrifting rather easy, therapeutic and know that I can always find something. However, the one item that can be a definite headache to find in a thrift store, are jeans!
Thrift and consignment stores tend to have a very LARGE selection of jeans. That is definitely a positive. However, the jeans are not organized by size and of course include a multitude of designers. That is the negative. Searching for your perfect fit and size is definitely like finding a needle in a haystack when searching for jeans because you might have to try on about twenty jeans to maybe get one.
I rarely thrift jeans because I too have a patience limit in thrift stores. I know, I know! The Thrift Diva with a limit for thrifting! However, I did say rarely, I didn’t say NEVER! I simply have to go into the thrift store knowing that I would only be looking for jeans– I call it my “Jeans Day”.
And the winner of a recent “Jeans Day” outing is this super comfortable JustFab boyfriend jeans that I got from the Salvation Army in San Diego for $4.99. These jeans retail for $39.99. These were the fourth jeans I tried on that day. Since they fit so awesome, I literally stopped my search, paid for them and left. No need to get a headache when I clearly lucked out so quickly.
I used these boyfriend jeans to dress down this gorgeous sequin top that I had thrifted from the Goodwill for $14.99. On the rack it can definitely remind you of someone’s grandma shirt. But, to me, this shirt is DIVA and CLASSY all in one. If you have been following my blog, you know that I am that girl to rock sequins anywhere at anytime. I definitely don’t follow the traditional sequin wearing rules as you can see here or here.
I completed the look by adding my Goodwill thrifted pink Elle heels that have definitely graced the blog in these outfits here and here. Of course, a cute clutch (purchased from TJ Maxx for $9.99) that matched the colors of the shirt perfectly was all that was needed. Cheers to “Jeans Day”.
