Thank Goodness For Goodwill!

Who: Jessica of the blog Wardrobes and Whimsy

What: Vintage pleated light denim shorts

Where: Goodwill

How Much: $3

When I Use It: I’ll be wearing them all summer!  I love that the high waisted and paper bag-style fit balances out tighter, more fitted tops.

Shopping Tips: When you’re shopping at thrift stores, don’t pass by an item without considering the possibilities.  These shorts are actually much longer (about knee-length, which is not flattering on me!) but when cuffed a couple times the fit is perfect.  Never pass by an item that interests you because of fit without first thinking about whether or not it can be altered somehow.

We can’t wait to see all the cool items you’ve discovered!

    can paper-bag cut, high-waisted shorts look good on girls bigger than a six 6? discuss!

    I LOVE this! I would never have thought that those shorts could look so cute and stylish! This makes me want to go shopping for unique finds for summer. I have to also agree with the other comments about the hair, super cute and almost the exact same as mine 🙂
