A Serious Woman

Processed with RNI Films. Preset 'Agfa RSX II'

This outfit will demand attention while still remaining muted. The colors are casual but the bold cut of the jacket and daring weight of the 90’s boots creates a pleasant juxtaposition. I purchased this stunning jacket from Goodwill for a mere $5. I got the boots for $10, the little white tee for $2, and my favorite purchase of all- these stunning black Levi 512’s for $10. I added the frilly white socks for a bit of fun!

Thrifting tip: use Poshmark! This app makes it easy to sell clothing (and dangerously easy to buy). My favorite thing about it is that you can bid a lower price on desired purchases. This will make you never want to return to online shopping with those frigid, set in stone prices.

I went online and found some cute, similar pieces in order to compare the prices. I found this shorter, plaid trench coat from Zara for $40 (originally $99). I also found a pair of High Rise black Levi’s for $60, a minimal white tee from Madewell for $14.50, and lastly this pair of black, lace up boots from ASOS for $48. I adore all of these products, but I’d rather pull off the look for a mere $27 over $162.50 any day. And I get to feel good about being sustainable? Sign me up.
