Total cost of complete outfit: $21.
The other day, my friend Marion expressed an interest in introducing her girls thrift store shopping. I am looking forward to taking her to my favorite places and sharing some of my thrifting tips. I can't express enough how thrifting is a creative adventure as well as being part of much needed way of being part of recycling clothing. I read some fantastical statistic on how much clothing/fabric ends up in landfills long enough ago to forget the number but not too long that I don't still think twice before I buy too many "disposable" $3 shirts at Walmart. I also try to limit how many clothes my kiddos have by choosing versatile pieces- this cuts down on laundry and helps my budget. A total win-win.
Anyway, with that in mind, I thought I'd post a complete thrift outfit I picked up for my little girl this week. By thrifting standards, the whole outfit is pretty spendy but because it includes versatile boots and a jacket she can wear for 2 seasons (plus I'm pretty confident I can dye the jacket after she's worn it awhile to give it a whole new life), I think it was money well spent. As I've mentioned in previous posts, my little girl is very enthusiastic about having a wardrobe that is different than all her friends who shop in the same few shops in our relatively small city and I get the fun of putting together outfits for her while saving money.
