Take this skirt, for example. This skirt was in the Goodwill pile of my former roommate. (She had a habit of buying super cheap items from Ebay and then discarding them almost immediately when she discovered they weren't exactly what she wanted. Though, I think she bought this skirt at a consignment store.) It was ankle length (ewwwww) and, frankly, it was UGLY. But, seeing as I am an innovative thinker and I can often realize the value in a long-forgotten piece of clothing (which is why I love thrift shopping so much), I snatched up this skirt and decided to cut it right at the knee. I had a vision. And I just knew it would come out looking adorable.
Welp, I was right. Per usual. Adorable! Granted, when I first tried it on after the cut, Jason said I looked like a preschool teacher, but luckily, I ignored him and now I think this is one of the cutest vintage looks that I own. Eat your heart out, Jason!
