Thrifty Confessions

I’m fiiiinally able to post after a week of my computer being down! I’m pretty sure it’s on its way to computer heaven and will need replacing soon. Ugh.

So last month when my Mom and Stepdad were in town, he offered me this nice rayon button-up of his that no longer fit him (he’s lost a bunch of weight). Being the thrifty person that I am, my eyes lit up and I was all over the free goods! I was thinking layerrrrs! I took it and rolled up the sleeves, sewed in a few stitches to make the sleeves stay up and my new favorite layering shirt was born! When repurposing oversized shirts like this, I recommend rolling up the sleeves to make it look more tailored and less “I’m playing dress-up in daddy’s closet.”

Light, flowy oversized shirts like these are great for adding a bit of edge to an outfit. I styled it here with mismatched prints and thought it tied the whole look together well!

Great item to look out for at the thrift store! Or even easier, in your man’s, dad’s, or brother’s closets!

PS The shoes I am wearing are a DREAM and I just found them on GILT.com for only $99!! These babies go with EVERYTHING, have a very low heel and the comfiest woven leather design that make them my ultimate fashionable and comfortable shoe. Get on it, if you like them! I’m sure they wont last!
