Thrift Tuesday - March 24

Today, we have a Thrift Tuesday double feature:
Rag & Bone Tank - The Real Real  
Retail: $150.00
Paid: $30.00 

Paige Skyline Jeans - Goodwill
Retail: $158.00
Paid: $7.00

The unpredictable nature of shopping secondhand requires an open mind. However, this doesn't mean you can't be prepared, so you can capitalize when you do find something with potential. 

These jeans are a perfect example. Paige is one of my favorite denim brands: the company had a female founder, they offer petite sizing, and it is based in Los Angeles. Also, as their sizing is consistent, when I saw these in my size, I knew I could scoop them up without having to try them on, and there was a good chance they'd fit. This particular Goodwill had limited dressing rooms and there was a line of people waiting, so if I'd had to wait to try them on, I might have just passed. Knowing beforehand what sizes you are in brands like Banana Republic, J. Crew and Ann Taylor, can be helpful when shopping at Goodwill.

This tank is fun, bright, and the quilted number makes it a touch sporty. I say that as someone who isn't sporty, never got to wear a jersey with a number on it in my youth, and is clearly making up for lost time now. 
Jacket is old from J. Crew, similar moto style jackets below.
I paired these pieces with my Veronica Short Frye boots (on sale). I have had these boots for just over 4 years, and they keep getting better and better. The break-in period was rough, but now they are incredibly comfortable and have held up admirably while carrying me through snow, sleet and rain. May I one day be lucky enough to find a pair at a Goodwill!
