Today's Everybody, Everywear's challenge is simple: showcase a thrifted item from your wardrobe for the Nifty Thrifty Edition. (Hey, it's also Thrifty Thursday at Spunky Chateau, check them out). I estimate about a third of my wardrobe is thrifted/consigned. It's one of my favorite hobbies. I love returning bags of clothes to the thrift store as if to the library, only to fill another bag with goodies. I try to use a discerning eye, and buy only what I love. I'm mostly successful, with an occasional goof to keep me humble.
Today's thrift find is a classic white cotton shirt from American Eagle Outfitters. It's thrifted from Goodwill for a couple of dollars and it's a good wardrobe workhorse. The skirt is by Willi Smith, and it was consigned for about $8. I love the sequins at the waistband, so no belt is needed. This is a nice, easy work outfit for me -- very comfortable, if a bit colorless. I can remix these two pieces, though, with more lively items.

I am sure we'll see a lot of cool and creative looks over at EBEW. Some super-talented bloggers have mastered the art and science of thrifting!
Are you a thrifter too, or a retail kind of woman?
