Thrifted: Skirts

I have more skirts then I could ever wear. I mean I do my best, but I have skirts that don't even fit me that I couldn't leave behind at the thrift store. Yes, I know this could be a problem, but they're so pretty! 

-Wool plaid (I am thinking 70's) skirt. The plaid had such pretty colors... blue, purple, gray and pink. I have 2 others in this style and they are so comfy to wear.  
-Pendleton pleated wool skirt! This is the perfect Christmas skirt.  I was trying to figure out how to wear it for this Christmas, but sadly I couldn't come up with a top/sweater combo in time.  Oh well, I will just have to wear it next year!
- Ann Klein gray skirt.  It doesn't happen too often, but I do thrift other things than vintage/handmade and this skirt made the cut.  It fit like a glove and is such a lovely color and texture.
-Pink handmade skirt.  This darling skirt was probably sent to the thrift store because it isn't perfect. The thread used is more red than pink and the zipper needed a bit of fixing, but something about the color (which I hardly wear) made me buy it.  I am thinking it may be a staple in the spring.

Is there anything you just can't leave behind while thrifting?


  1. You find some -amazing- thrifts (tiny bit jealous) These are such pretty skirts! I have a bit of problem passing up books in thrift stores, I'm a sucker for browsing the shelves even though I have so many unread books at home.
