Brocade Pants Blessing from the Thrift Gods

Thank you thrift gods for the awesome brocade pants. I've lusted over them since the J. Crew Spring / Summer 2013 collection. No they aren't J. Crew but they will do. I paid $2.50. Oh yes, they will do.

Picture it. Saturday evening, I'm full and bloated after eating a delicious ethiopian feast. I get a call from Girl Get a Life asking me if was going? Going where, I say. She said there was a Salvation Army 50% pop up sale (7p until closing) posted in the Thriftanista Social Club FB page. What?

A 50% off all tag sale is a rarity at my local Salvation Army. I am absolutely going!

We came. We saw. And in 3 hours we conquered. Girl Get A Life spied the brocade pants first. She didn't think they would fit her. As I'm near drool stage over them, I greedily removed them from her hands and put them in my cart. I tried them on in store even though I wasn't in my thrift shopping leggings. Luckily, we chose right and hit up the fancy upscale Salvation Army with the changing rooms.

They fit and they were the perfect ankle length for my stubs short legs. In short (har har har), these are the best friggin pants ever! I love ankle length. I love brocade. I love thrift shopping. Best part? I didn't have to pay $100+.

What do think? Are you down with brocade?

See one of the other gems from my thrift haul on instagram. It's another Girl Get a Life castoff! Thrifting is fun. Thrifting with friends is even more fun!

I'll be looking for a pair. Or making a pair...more likely. I'm a shameless copycat.

Love them! My friends do not like thrifting. They send me for them. It is so much more fun with another person!
