Blogging has become such a part of my life that I now plan photo shoots around my adventures, so I can have a new backdrop (and a new outfit!). On a recent visit to the Keswick Theater in Glenside to hear Midnight Oil (a 80s Australian band), I planned a casual concert look of a t-shirt and jeans. But, these were no ordinary pieces.
The t-shirt’s pattern caught my eye at Goodwill in Robesonia, PA. It was inky black color in a soft jersey fabric with a smattering of silver foil dots. It was sparkly without being over the top. I checked the tag and it was Juicy Couture! T-shirts on their website range up to $118, so my $3.95 was a solid investment.
The jeans were also a hidden gem. I pulled the non-descript distressed dark wash jeans from a rack at Goodwill in Exton, PA. I wasn’t familiar with the brand “Pilcro and the Letterpress”, but a quick internet search revealed that they are an Anthropologie brand and would have retailed for $138! I plunked down my $6.50 and walked out with the newest addition to my premium denim collection.
For accessories I added a Jessica Simpson studded black clutch. This would have cost $57 had I bought it new. The multi-strand rhinestone necklace from Chico’s played up the silver in the shirt and the studs on the clutch. Lastly, I needed footwear that I could dance in. These strappy low heeled, zippered sandals from MRKT fit the bill.
This outfit would have retailed for about $400, but my total was just $25.89, so I can keep affording those concert tickets!
