Lookbook: Thrifty Sister

Shirt - Gap
Skirt - Thrifted
Shoes - H&M
Belt - Thrifted

Have you seen the gorgeous pleated mid-length skirts everyone has been sporting lately?  We are so happy that mid-length skirts are in style now, because we wore them when they weren't in style due to our monstrous height.  Most skirts on normal people are like mini skirts on us.  We no like.  

Who is we, you might be wondering?  Oh yeah, meet my sister, Sydney.  You know when you meet sisters and you're thinking how much cuter one is than the other?  That's why I didn't introduce my sister to you sooner.  She is too cute!  But you will still like me, right?

She is my thrifting buddy.  We found that skirt at Goodwill for five bones!  I'm a newbie to the thrifting world and it is a place I never want to leave.  Thrifting is good people.  Gone are the days of buying every piece of my wardrobe from Delia's. {shudders} Now when I go to the mall it's always in the back of my mind, I could find something like this at the thrift store for a quarter of the price.  This has helped me save a lot of money.  I can find a few summer pieces for a fraction of the cost, which makes me oh so happy.  

If only I could have found that skirt first and it was in my size!  You win some, you lose some.  Goodwill, I'm coming for you!

Just to clarify this is not me, it is my sister Sydney. I could not pull off that haircut. I love it on her though! Maybe you didn't read my post introducing her, I don't blame you because these pictures are just too pretty! =)

Anyways, thanks for the comments!

It is always good to have a thrifting partner in crime ... one that is related to you? Even better!

Your sister looks adorable in that skirt! Hope you find your perfect pleated wonder soon! {the thrill of the hunt can be the best part :)}

Thrifting is good for the soul. It's therapeutic for me. I began about 6-7 months ago and I will never be the same again!

I'm not really all that tall but I too love longer skirts. They just have a comfort & ease about them. I'm with you on the thrifting, saves lot of money. It is my hobby :)
