I thrifted the leopard print jeans a while ago at Goodwill. They were in my mend pile to never ever again see the light of day. I wanted to take in the pant leg and make them a little more skinny. Right now they are a bootcut. Now that I pulled them out, I think I will keep them as is. Bootcut works for me.
They are a great representation of one of my thrift tips -- ignore size labels. They're a size 13/14 and I think they are from the juniors section. I loved the print but turned my noise up at that size and the teeny bopper cut. I tried them on anyway. To my surprise, they fit very well. I have complete butt coverage even when I bend over! There's no waist gap either. No belt required.
That leaves room for me to apply a totally non-functional belt around my waist. I have no reason for the waist belt other than I wanted to change it up a bit because I have worn this sweater several times on the blog. It's in disguise. Is it working? Did you recognize the sweater from this post and this one?
I don't have a lot of sweaters. I had a hard time finding them this winter. Well, maybe every winter because my closet is really lacking in that department. Hence, the green sweater repetition.
A change is coming though. I had a major haul yesterday at Unique Thrift Store's $10 per bag sale. I can't wait to show all the goodies! It's been a while since I've done a large haul.
I went out in the snowstorm we're having here in Chicago. Yeah, I love thrift shopping that much.
