Thursday Thrift Score: Denim, Part II

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!

  1. I love the combination! It's been years since I wore jeans. But kudos to those like you who can, and do, and look awesome in them :) I'm currently in a gradual weight-loss plan, inspired in no small part by your journey. I hope to be able to wear jeans and feel comfortable in them, at some point in the future. This combo is something I can see me wearing, and liking it :)

  2. Great outfit...I especially like the layering with the vest and pop of color in the jacket. :) Awesome deal on the jeans!

    1. Thanks, Desarae! Layering is something I still struggle with at times, feeling like I'm mixing too many patterns/textures. But I always love it on other people, so I'm really trying to get out of my matchy-matchy, less-is-always-more frame of mind.
