I was surprised at what I was able to find. My first discovery was a basic white frilly skirt. I've been pondering doing a tie dye project for a while, so I filed this item away in my future project area.
My second find was a very cute Grape Crush shirt. Not my photo below, but it exactly resembles the item which I found:
I love the softer purple coloring of this item along with the vintage feel of the logo.
My final find was my favorite. Remember how I mentioned preparing for winter? Well, I was able to find a pastel rainbow colored sweater. ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ
I coordinated the outfit below to be my first spank!/ 80s pastel outfit. I'm pleased with the results:
Earrings: Darling Deers
Necklace: Forever 21
I was pleasantly surprised with how this outfit came out. I also messed with my hair, going for something more akin to an 80s top knot like I've seen in a number of photos of girls sporting the fashion.
Also, for once, my wallet wasn't crying out in fear. I managed to snag all of the pieces for about $7 with tax. Pretty good deal to me.
The lesson of this story? Give your local thrift store a try. You and your budget may be pleasantly surprised.
