Mint + Pleats

Another almost entirely thrifted outfit! At this point I think I've gotten the cost per wear on most of these items down to below a dollar, which is what I strive for with everything I take into my closet... but rarely achieve.
Having them been super inexpensive to start with is always a good start though. Ten dollars for this bag? Amazing. I'll only be sad when it really gets too cold to carry a canvas bag.

Mint green is such a pretty color. I have yet to find anything in mint green though! Great thrifted outfit. You don't have to spend a ton of money to look like a million bucks!

Ooh I love mint on you! Hmm, some of my pieces may be down to a dollar too, but it is hard with other pieces. I need to bring more clothing into my rotation!

My goodwill and thrift stores have gone up so much that at the minimum outfits are now costing $20-25, which I know is a bargain but still. I love that skirt on you!

Mint is gorgeous on you and I absolutely adore the pleated skirt on you. On another note, I adore your blog's name and mission statement; although I've already graduated university, old habits die hard and I'm always constantly on the look out for fantastic deals. Awesome work, keep it up! :)

With love from San Francisco, California,
