Thrifted Pinterest

Pinterest is bad for my bank account.  I mean, let's face it, you get to scroll through pages and pages of fabulous outfits and Polyvore boards, and it makes even the most frugal shopper feel like she wants to trash most of her closet and go max out a credit card at the mall.  Oh, that's just me?  Fair enough!

In order to keep myself from going shopping crazy, I've started pinning outfits that contain items that I already own.  I'm going to start a weekly feature for you guys called Thrifted Pinterest where I recreate some of my outfit pins using mostly thrifted, resale, or DIY items I have in my closet.  Because it really is possible to pull a lot of these looks together without spending your rent payment!

For our first installment, I submit this pin I ran across of a knit blazer from the blogger's dream store, Anthropologie:

Okay, this blazer is adorable, but it comes with the price tag of $98!  However, I just happened to have it's twin in my closet, along with a similar patterned top, both via Goodwill.  Therefore, I was able to pull together a similar outfit for less than the cost of the original blazer!  I did change up the jeans from the original picture, though.  It was originally with dark skinny jeans, which I do have, but I wanted to have a slightly more 70's vibe going on with the long shirt and bootcut jeans, just to make it my own!

  1. You're definitely not the only one who feels like burning everything in her closet and starting over, trust me! I like your solution of pinning looks with pieces you already have and this look is a great start. The blazer is great on you and I like the pop of blue you added with the bangles.

    1. Thank you! I definitely need to keep a damper on the shopping bug, so I try to use things I already have as much as possible!


I'd love to hear your input!
