What: Vintage Owl Skirt
Where: Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, NYC
How Much: $15.00 (but originally priced at $30!)
When I use It: So far I’ve worn it out to dinner with my boyfriend and his parents and out to lunch with a friend! But it’s a great skirt for any casual occasion. Also, I’ve included a picture of the lining of the skirt – little shorts! I didn’t realize it ’til I got home and tried the skirt on. I was so confused when I was pulling it on, I thought it was a skort! But no, it’s just a skirt with shorts underneath.
Shopping Tips: At a flea market, don’t be afraid to bargain! I was worried about offering $15 for the skirt when it was marked at $30, but the guy selling it agreed right away! It made me think I should have offered $10… Also, for thrifters living in NYC, head to the boroughs for thrift shops. I’ve found my best finds (aside from this skirt, of course) in Queens.
