Yesterday, I shared with you thrift store shopping tips taught to me by a true second-hand guru. Today, I’ll show you how I put those tips to good use.
Are you ready for this? Newt and I had a little photo shoot in the yard.
It’s always nice to put on a show for neighbors and random passersby.
Look #1 The “Modeling in Your Front Yard is Awkward” Pose
The first pair of skinny jeans I have owned since the 8th grade
Here’s a close up of the… ah… pocket details.
Chocolate brown cardigan
West and Vine
cotton blend, looks new – no pilling (not even under the arms)
The white tank, necklace and boots came from my own closet.
Look #2 – The “I’m So Casually Leaning Against My Truck” Pose
Gray button up t-shirt
cotton-poly blend, great condition
I love the sleeve detail. I paired this with the same jeans and boots, because I was too lazy to put something else together for my photo shoot.
Look #3 The “Yes, I Know I Needed to Pull My Shirt Down” Pose
I was just trying to keep Newt from documenting all the weeds. Looks like I failed there too.
Black jersey knit shirt with blue embroidery detail
Old Navy Sweetheart cut
Look #4 The “Using This Chair to Support my Leg Pop” Pose
Cotton skirt with ribbon detail
Oatmeal colored sweater twin-set
cotton blend, again looks brand new – no pilling
This was my big ticket item, but it’s a twofer. Look at it without the cardigan in my “Just Hanging Out on My Wall and Newt is Making Me Laugh” Pose:
I didn’t leave Newt out of the thrifty-fun.
Newt Look #1: The “Just Climbing the Fence” Pose:
She’s wearing them right now and doesn’t want to tell me the brand
Here they are from another angle in the “Holy Cow, Newt Has Long Legs” Pose
The sweater came from her own
Newt also got a canvas belt ($2.99) and a pair of embroidered jean capris ($6.99). They are not pictured because the photo session got boring and the model refused to cooperate.
Models! [eyeroll accompanied by exasperated sigh]
Total spent: $68.89
Average cost per item: $6.26
I think we did great. What do you think?
