Lisa requested a post on my most-worn thrifted items and examples of how they’ve been remixed. How could I say no to THAT one? I scoured the archives looking for my most-worn, bought-used garments, and here are the winners:
MVP: Olive military blazer!
This little jacket has been through several years with me and gets year-round wear. It has a tendency to look a bit rumpled and sometimes I have to fight to keep those pocket flaps down, but the nipped-in waist and versatile vibe have made it a longtime favorite. I believe I paid about $5 for this jacket.

It’s that time again! Time for me to remind you (and myself) that nothing in the world of style is new, and that the season’s hottest trends are EMINENTLY thrift-able. Eminently, people. These trends are basically begging to be thrifted.
Maxi dresses and skirts
Surprise! Maxi skirts and dresses are going to be HUGE this season! I can see that you’re all reeling in surprise. Seriously, though, since these longer lengths have been hot for years, the thrift shops are lousy with ’em. And, of course, maxis are generational so if you scour the racks you might find a funky vintage version or two.
