Here we see what happens when I throw on five things that support each other on a color and fabric level but made me feel weird and disproportional all day. Orange Uniqlo scarf picks up the tiny dots of red in the thrifted Japanese chrysanthemum shift, but then the hand-me-down Gap Kids wool sweater cuts the whole thing in half at the waist. Topped with fluffy humidity-victim hair and finished with engineer boots. Luckily I could cover it all with the five-dollar parka, which is the opposite of waterproof but it lets me feel like I’m walking around in a sleeping bag all day. #ohwell#betterlucknexttime#thriftyaf

S A T U R D A Y * wearing a fitness no nonsense outfit to get sh#% done tights are cotton on thrifted from @herwardrobemarket for $5 and the soft pink leather clutch was also $5 from last weeks @wlsqstrongerthanyouknow rummage. I’m thinking it could do with a monogram of rose gold letters. What you think? #shethriftsallday#thriftyaf#opshopfinds#thriftstorefinds#sustainablefashion

Let us talk for a moment about our foul-weather gear. When I bought this Barbour coat in 1984 for the princely sum of £70 to survive the comically drenching Scottish winter, I had no idea that it would be my only rain coat for 34 years, but here we are. It’s not remotely cozy but it is absolutely wind- and waterproof. This is the coat you see on Queen Elizabeth as she’s tramping through the moors with a herd of corgis. Boots are Blundstones, bought in 1992, and again - absolutely waterproof and still aging nicely for a boot I wear a lot in winter. Scarf purchased from a cart in Greenwich Village in 1997 for a dollar. Battered Lucky jeans; polka dot Happy Socks. I love old clothes. #thriftyaf#fashionover50#wearwhatyouwant and #havefungoddamnit#barbour#blundstone#luckyjeans#happysocks
I’m not normally one to fret about wrinkled clothes but good lord. Thrifted sheath dress made of rayon and wool with the tag cut out, which made me think it was designer. But sometimes the best clothes come from non-fancy labels - these jeans, for example, are Butt Lifters (via Marshall’s) (they lift nothing, my ass is headed straight for my ankles and there’s nothing these jeans will be able to do about it). Thrifted cashmere men’s jacket was cozy as hell on this rainy day. Fluevog Montague boots. And my oh my look at all that gray hair. #wearwhatyouwant#havefungoddamnit#thriftyaf#fluevog

This looks unnecessarily violent, but using the butcher knife was the only way to get into this bottle! I have really naturally curly hair and spend a ton on hair products, so you better believe I’m going to get every drop out of this $36 Moroccanoil cream. I usually cut open product bottles to get the last drops, but this was seriously still about a third full when the pump stopped grabbing it.
