Sometimes you have to look past what something looks like, and see it for what it could be. I feel this rings true in nearly any aspect in life, but especially when thrifting.
Most of the clothes you’ll find at the thrift store are predominately straight forward, what you see is what you get, but there are some instances where you can take something that looks extremely dated and virtually make it brand new again with very few minor changes.
I recently purchased this dress for only $5 at my local Goodwill. The first thing that I noticed about it was the print, then the triple layer ruffle skirt, those were selling points for me, but the top portion was more than lacking. I almost left without it, because I had that little voice in my head telling me that it was too far gone, and definitely not going to work. Well I can tell you that I’m glad that I pushed that thought out of my head, I absolutely, head over heels love this dress.
Once I looked past the flaw, I definitely saw a way to instantly update it and make it work. I simply tied the dress in the back, unbuttoned a few buttons, and positioned the top to be and off the shoulder dress. What a world of difference it made, this dress reminded me of so many hot items that I’m currently seeing in stores, except mine only cost me $5. This post was mainly just to tell you guys to keep an eye out for great finds, but most importantly an open mind for something that may not seem like the obvious choice, but will definitely have you feeling like a winner!
