Being a thrifter, I have quite the pick of unusual and outdated garments and a lot of them end up on my arm as I walk through the store. But I'm also strong willed and really good at saying no, so the clothes almost always get returned to where they came from. Remember that video I made awhile back depicting thrift store people? Well, one of them I left out is the old ladies that walk around buying everything and then telling people "I don't really need this, but it's just so cute!" I do not want to be that old lady. (Or, ya know, be young and that foolish.)
This outfit is kind of a good/bad example of that big chunk of text. My poncho was a hand-me-down from my favorite aunt, but I think I would have splurged for it if I had come across it shopping. I mean, have you seen it?! Houndstooth rules!
Despite my sartorial hesitance, I still try to have some balance and make sure buying stuff is fun. A gal can't say no to more sequins in her wardrobe forever, right? ;)
