A great Thrift Store Find!!

4 years ago

I dont go thrifting very often but when I do, its usually because I`m in search of a specific item. Thrifting is like treasure hunting sometimes. You dont always find it but when you do, its so exciting! I was specifically looking for a jean/denim jacket. I`ve seen some on topshop and other sites for $75 or more.... CRAZY!!! Its not always easy because I literally went to 5 thrift stores in order to find the right one. Finally, I spotted this one from Ambercrombie and Fitch for $14. It fitted well and the distressed wash was perfect. It use to be a long sleeved jacket but my goal was to cut off the sleeves and turn it into a denim vest (which I did). I then had some left over pyramid studs that I had ordered off of Ebay. I attached the studs onto the shoulders. I would of liked to add more studs but that was all I had. I am soooooo happy with the end result. I plan to wear this over my floral maxi dresses. You can find great things at Thrift stores. You just have to have an open mind and mostly, have patience.
