As I mentioned previously, I loves me some jeans. And I think I've made it abundantly clear I loves me some thrift shops. So it stands to reason I would jump at the chance to score a pair of quality jeans for a fraction of the original price, right? Imagine my delight when I spotted these babies a few months back at my local Goodwill.
You're looking at a pair of like-new J. Crew toothpick jeans that fit me like a glove. These typically retail for upwards of $125, so I didn't think twice about forking over the $10 second-hand price for them. I wear these jeans at least once a week, limited only by my lackadaisical laundering habits. Today I paired them with my raspberry velvet blazer, my refashioned plaid vest, a frilly thrifted tee, my favorite pairs of boots (DSW clearance), and my handmade beaded scarf-necklace.
Sure the outfit's a bit autumnal, but with 17 rapid weather changes in the past 3 weeks, I'm beginning to get confused what season it is! Plus, sometimes I like to flag my geek flag without anyone in public noticing. Did you figure it out?
That's right! It's my homage to the fourth Doctor Who, the illustrious Tom Baker. Just get me a fedora, and you'd never know the difference!
