Thrift Find | Moschino Skirt

July 19, 2012

Found this Moschino Cheap and Chic skirt for realzz cheap at a thrift store. So cheap I almost felt bad for paying so little. Funny thing is, if it were a Gap or Old Navy skirt then I would’ve been charged a fortune. “Es americana!”

The length makes me look somewhat matronly and shorter than usual, but who cares. Bring on the man repelling!

Floral Cheap & Chic Moschino skirtOn being featured and stuff:

Even though I feel flattered to be given any sort of attention, I suck at self-promotion.
Last March (yep, about 4 months ago) I was featured on much read Honduran magazine, Estilo. I never thought this would happen because Estilo is all about fancy ladies in Louboutins and baby showers that cost more than my house, so it was a huge compliment to be asked to do this.

It was fun. I said things like “it’s time for me to buy a pair of Karen Walker sunnies” but I haven’t because DANG, so much money for a pair of sunnies my little brother could easily sit on. Other than that, I shared my love for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Chloe Sevigny, print mixing, vintage jewelry and how much I identified with paranoid Oliver from Submarine.

Hooray for shameless self-promotion!

    You are right about what thrift shops consider expensive brands. But I guess that’s just a plus for those who can spot a really high fashion brand for a few bucks.
