I love thrifting statement pieces but buy staples, and pieces that are harder to fit, new. (Searching for second-hand jeans has proven a nightmare.) I hit the jackpot of brightly colored, winter statement pieces at Savers today and decided to brag in a blog post.
Below is try-on time lapse because I am ninety years old and just discovered that function on my phone. I’m not sure if the thumbnail appears as me doing the T-pose upside down to you as well, but it does for me and seems very haunted.
Here’s a breakdown of pieces and prices.
Yellow Eddie Bauer jacket: $8.99.
100% SILK Croft & Barrow (lol) blouse: $11.99. Pricey but SILK.
Violet double-breasted blazer: $3.49.
Yellow Mossimo jacket: $5.49. Yes, I bought two yellow jackets. They’re different.
Hot pink (blurry) hoops: $1.99. Lavender studs: $.99.
Neon pink Forever 21 crop: $3.49.
Green pleated skirt that I forgot to take a picture of: $3.49.
TOTAL: $39.92 for eight items.
I am obsessed with color blocking and interesting structures (the jackets) and textures (the silk top), so this trip to savers was a huge win for me. I actually hope it stay cold so I can wear all of my layerable pieces.
I’m a little rusty. I realize this is not the highest quality content. I hope to style some of these pieces and get some higher quality pictures soon.
