I visited the Thrifty Shopper in East Syracuse this week and found a wrap skirt, a shirt and a dress for less than $20 total! I just spent the same amount of money at dinner tonight and unlike food, these items will last a long, long time.
My first item was a vintage pink wrap skirt ($5.99). This find made me so happy! I love style influenced by the ’50s and this wrap skirt looked like it could have been around back then! At first, it was a little too tight on me. Since it is a wrap skirt, I was able to move two buttons over and ta-da! It now fits me like a glove. I first paired my new wrap skirt with a cream colored sleeveless top with a peter pan collar. Then I matched it with a black long-sleeved top, which was a recent Thrifty Shopper find.
Next I bought a black dress with long flare sleeves from American Eagle ($7.99). I love a good LBD (Little Black Dress) because they literally go with everything. I wore this with a patterned sleeveless vest for a very bohemian look. Next I wore it on its own with a statement necklace to give it a classy look.
My last item was a plaid magenta top from Wild Blue ($4.99). This top is kind of like a plaid cardigan, which I love! I wore this with my maroon leggings and a black top for a casual, around the house look. Then I paired it with a grey swing dress and a necklace to go out and about with.
