Thank you to everyone who participated in this month’s Thrift Challenge! It has been an exciting month preparing for this segment. Katie challenged us to recreate a casual chic outfit we found on Pinterest, which featured distressed boyfriend jeans, a white blazer, and a gray tee. Surprisingly, a fitted white blazer was harder to find than the sequined skirt I wore in last month’s challenge. In fact, three challenge participants said the same thing. I found striped blazers for days, but it wasn’t until my third visit to the thrift store that I find a fitted white one. Although the mission behind our Thrift Challenge is to prove that you can shop with an idea in mind, sometimes it takes a little patience to find what you’re looking for. Same goes for any store though, how many times have you gone to the mall looking for something specific just to turn around and go back home? The only difference is when you finally do find the item you’re looking for at the thrift store, the reward is even greater because you scored it at a ridiculously low price!
I decided to modify the challenge a bit by not distressing my boyfriend jeans. I also tried something new and wore my belts backwards!
Now, for the fun part! Let’s get through the reader challenge submissions!
*Because Katie helped facilitate this challenge, she chose not to be included in the voting process.
Now let’s all head over to Katie’s blog to see how she and her readers recreated this 3 tiered stand DIY!
