So I’m back!! And I definitely LOVE my purchases.
I held myself back a little, because I wanted to be practical and consider that I had other places I wants to spend my school clothes money.
First off, I bought a jean jacket. (My favorite purchase) I love looking at jackets at thrift stores, because whenever you want something vintage looking, you can always find one that looks awesome after being “used.” I bought a Large, which a couple sizes too big, but that way it make it baggy, and not tight around the shoulders. (Jean jackets have a tendency to be tight around the arm pits and shoulders usually.) They had several brands, most of which I didn’t recognize. So I picked a style that I liked best, and then checked the price through Google. My jean jacket is the Bass brand, which is normally $39.99. I bought it for $2.00
I have plenty of pins at home, like ones with my initials, emojis, organizations I support, etc.
So, I add a little splash of color all over the distressed dark blue denim.
If you want to add pins, but don’t have any, old earrings work just as well. Just bend if you have too much end so that it doesn’t poke you.
My next favorite purchase is a pair of vintage shoes. They look really small, but are actually pretty roomy inside. I was super lucky to find my size.
They have a tiny bit of heel, which made me worried at first because I don’t do heels. Nope. I trip and tumble, and hurt my poor ankles. But I could hardly tell they had anything on the bottom!
Warning about this kind of shoes: I own a vintage pair of boots similar to this, and you have to keep in mind they have a VERY thin bottom. Like no support. So it’s not for a lot of walking, but for a school day, or lunch date, they’re perfect.
I bought a few t-shirts too, but those were my two favorite things I got.
