This blog often focuses on finding trendy modern clothes, while staying on budget. Another option (and to me, the more fun option) to find cheap stylish clothing is to buy vintage.
To highlight my love for vintage, I’m starting a segment on this blog called “Thrift Store Find,” which will feature vintage clothing or accessories that can work for a modern wardrobe. Here’s the first one:
Recently, I found these adorable white ankle boots at a local antique mall for $16. The boots didn’t have any markings or tags, so I wasn’t able to research their age, but my guess from the style is that they’re from the ’80s.
These boots immediately caught my eye because of their cute shape. I love the cutout detailing on the top of the boots and the combination of suede and leather. Normally I wouldn’t have purchased a vintage item that was so scuffed, but they were just too sweet to pass up.
So far I’ve worn them with skinny jeans and a chunky sweater. They would also work with a mini skirt and leggings.
What do you think about my vintage find? Do you buy vintage? Tell me about it in the comments section.
