Thrifting Thursday: Dating Myself

I bought this top at Village Discount Outlet on a recent thrift binge with BFF. We had so much stuff. I spent $36 (15 items) which is $16 over my normal limit but I liked everything and couldn't leave anything behind. This was an epic thrift adventure!

I love the colors of the psychedelic print. It was also flattering when I tried it on. It can be a a vest or a shirt. Even though my arms are fully exposed (no likey), I loved the look. It's part Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and part Jem (shout out to the mamas born in the 70s).

I hesitate a bit when I buy the older rags because I don't want to look like a complete throwback. Pairing it with the maxi dress makes it look more current. I like it.


When thrifting, do you look for more modern pieces or venture into previous decades?

I LOVE it.

Why don't you like your arms exposed?

I like to mix things up when thrifting: I love 70s dresses (big surprise there!) and also look for 'classic' things a-line skirts.

Truly outrageous, truly, truly, truly outrageous!!

I have just gotten on to the thrifting thing within the last week. I have been to 4 thrift stores this week. I am looking for different pieces. I have always liked tops from the 70's, especially blouses. I'm hooked. If its cute, I'm buying it.

@Girl Chunky arms. Body image crap.

@Mimi another Jem fan..heyyyy!!! I love thrifting. I went to day and scored a gold leather jacket for $4. It's cute. Trust me. It's kind of addictive. Always looking for another deal to beat the deal I just got.
