What I think is cool about thrifting and bargain shopping is that I am able to try out pieces that I normally wouldn't.  When I am purchasing something full price, I think it through carefully. Sometimes even overthink it. I always want to make sure that I will get my money's worth! When I find stuff super cheap, I don't have to think about it nearly as much. For example, this jacket. I could never justify buying it full price. For $40, it's got to be something I plan to wear once a week, every week. Now for $12? Oh yes. I was willing to give it a try! I really like it, and I feel like it's a piece in my closet I'll get a pretty good amount of wear out of over a few years!

  2. Such a cute jacket! Even better for $12!! I'm with you, I feel that I can try new things more if I've thrifted them or got them off the clearance rack.

  4. I totally know what you mean! I love "taking a chance" on something that's not my usual style, or that I'm not sure if I will like, because it's under $20. It's liberating! If it doesn't work out, oh well, back to the thrift store it goes! I've stumbled on to so many pieces that way that have become staples in my wardrobe ...

  8. What a great jacket! I love the leather accent trend! I have some leather leggings from target that I love to pair with a similar jacket.. . maybe you saw it near that one? It's bright blue/black tweed with a diagonal moto type zipper? It's like a motorcycle jacket meets the adorable ladylike tweed jackets. I love this one on you though! So so cute! I found a similar one.. minus the leather at my local Goodwill for $8. So excited to wear it but it needs a bit of mending first. :) Thanks for outfit inspirations and for following my blog back. :) -Alexandra

  11. The jacket is too cute! I totally agree with you though, I only branch out and buy unexpected pieces if they're like, SUPER cheap. Otherwise it's just a waste of money.
