Thrifty Nifty

Yesterday mi amiga Allison and I went out to dinner at my new favorite restaurant.  I had a blast with her.  After some din, we hit up the thrift stores to work on our costumes for an upcoming theme party.  What better to wear to a thrift store than I top I picked up at a thrift shop back in Seattle?  I love this top, but sometimes I have a tough time wearing it because of the cut.  Tucked into a denim skirt and belted it looks modern and cute.
Top: Thrifted
Skirt: Merona
Belt: Macy's
Shoes: xhiliration
Bag: Coach
Bracelets:  Old from high school




So what about you?  Do you ever do thrifting to find unique pieces?

I honestly must not know HOW to thrift, because I rarely seem to find anything as darling as this or what I see featured on other style blogs. I adore this outfit!

Blogger is FINALLY letting me comment here again! You konw I'm a thriftaholic so yes, I usually see if I can thrift trends before I go retail. :)

I love the color of that purse. It is so perfectly Kinsey, too. It's unexpected with the red and blue and it works!

I am a thrifter too! I love that I can find items for basically pennies in comparison to what is in department stores or the mall, also its fun to modify or refashion items that are thrifted to customize them for a perfect fit or specific trend.

Ooooooo, love this! Very "pin-up-retro" but work appropriate.

Love the top!

I try to thrift, but I never see anything worthwhile. My husband, on the other hand, has quite a few thrifted items in his closet. :)

Dear Kinsey,
My computer has been out of commission, which has made commenting very difficult. In other news, I've missed your colorful ensembles like whoa.
