Check out this trench. Forever21 clearance last year - $15. It's got an asymmetrical button closure, and such cute polka-dotted lining (that you can't see here, sorry)!
My shirt and jeans both came from Forever21 as well. They were regular price at $14.50 and $12.50.
The boots were another clearance from Spring for only $20 over a year ago. The scarf? I can't remember, but I've never spent more than $10 on a scarf before.
My total outfit cost? Approx. $65 (including boots & jacket).
I need to start visiting more thrift stores. Everyone seems to find such great pieces for such great prices. I don't know of any around me, other than Value Village. And last time I went there, I couldn't find anything :( Maybe I need thrifting lessons?
Do you have any "steals" in your closet that you're in love with?
