Too Thrifty Chicks



When size doesn’t matter

There is so much about thrifting that we love, oh let us count the ways! One of the top reasons we love thrifting is because it allows us to break all the fashion rules and disavow social conventions such as clothes size.  Most wouldn’t dare risk buying something they knew wouldn’t fit, but with thrifting, risk is often reward.

Take this shirt for instance. I fell in love with it because of the color and the button detail on the left shoulder. I’m sure the price wasn’t bad either.  But clearly the shirt is not made to fit me.

Too big? No such animal!

But all it takes is a simple belt at the waist and now I have a quick, no-sew peplum-style top! Not only have I paired this top with skinny jeans, but it looks pretty awesome with my favorite black body-con pencil skirt too.

And just like magic, it fits! Pow!
