I’ve been looking for a denim jacket for a long time. I wanted it to be dark denim, slightly tapered at the waist and long enough to reach my hips. Yeah, pretty specific. I tried on too many to count. Then one day at a garage sale with mostly kids’ clothes, I spied this on a rack for adults. It was a little big, but met all of my requirements. And it only cost $5. After Korinne assured me that it looked cute with the sleeves rolled up a bit, I was sold.
I brought it home and ran it through the washer and dryer. You know what? I really think this was practically new. It shrunk just a little bit and now I don’t have to shorten the sleeves. I’m not a huge fan of the faded spots, but they are a lot less obvious when I’m wearing it. I even kind of like the applique.
thrifting: If the three most important words in real estate are location, location and location, then the three most important words in thrifting are patience, patience, and patience.
