Vintage treasure find of the weekend! $25 ≠ Priceless

It’s Fashion Friday: Levi’s Sample Sale Style!
That’s right, I hit up the Levi’s sample sale and what else would I wear to a Levi’s event, other than my vintage $1 self-cutoff Levi’s!? Be jealous shoppers, be jealous…
On another note, I got oodles of compliments on my wolf shirt. The guy at the bank described it as “the coolest shirt I’ve ever seen.” Thanks Teresa for sewing in lace patches to this (also) $1 vintage find. This shirt draws boys like bees to honey, further proof you don’t have to drop a load of cash to get a great top.
Actually, now that I think about it, today’s entire outfit today came from thrift stores. The wolf shirt and shorts ($2 total) I scored at Penny Pinchers in West Richland. The sunnies ($1) and jacket ($12) came from Goodwill. The boots ($25) and cuff ($5) I scored at the Melrose Trading Post. Heck, the only things not thrifted are my rings. Total outfit cost? $45 bones. Clothes > Full Tank of Gas
Do you have a style staple that is guaranteed compliments? $1 wolf shirts make me feel better about $198 Jeffrey Campbell heels :]
I know a lot of people expected to see my WRECKER featured in this Fashion Friday post, and I initially planned to wear them too, but after a prep-free morning decided to take it back to my Northwest roots in this vintage 70′s dress.
My mom bought this dress for me at an antique store in Richland for $30. I remember at the time trying it on (perfect fit) and thinking, “How perfect for a photo shoot.” It’s also entirely appropriate for The Gorge. When I asked Mom to bring this one-of-a-kind treasure to LA, she couldn’t believe I would actually wear it.
And why wouldn’t I? This is Los Angeles. Anything goes. I’ll admit, I felt a little insecure stepping out of my fashion comfort zone, and I garnered a few looks walking to The Body Shop blogger event, but this is who I am. If you don’t like my outfit, too bad. But guess what? The women at the event loooooved my dress. It might have been more memorable than my (dare I say it) WRECKER heel.
Moral of this story? Step out of your comfort zone. Try something different. Be proud of your appearance. Radiate good energy. People feel it. Now can someone show me the way to Fauxchella?
