skinny jeans + thrift sisters link up

skinnyjeanscollageI 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.

DSC_9947I 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!

DSC_9950 DSC_9953I 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!

DSC_9965 DSC_9970One 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!

DSC_9973 DSC_9993I 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!

DSC_9994Now, it’s time to jump into our Thrift Sisters link up!  Keren and I launched our Thrift Sisters link up, encouraging you to post thrifted or thrifty priced items to this link up.  We are very appreciative of those who take the time to link up their great outfits.  This week’s featured Thrift Sister is Rachelle from PinkSole!  We love how she styled this chic black and white outfit.  Check out her blog for great styles that are ultra chic but quite affordable.
