I'm going to tell you this right now: I don't thrift shop. Not because I am weird about secondhand things (of which I have many) but mostly because I'm laaaaazy. I like to dig but thrift shopping is just overwhelming and there's so so SO much garbage to dig through. Plus, I don't have the magical eye like Nina does. So, this is where I tell you that the outfit I'm wearing is mostly thrift store finds. Nina thrift store finds. The sweater is Lands' End (cashmere!) and I believe cost $4. The jeans are Joe's Jeans Wide Leg Muse and cost $7 (plus $10 to get them hemmed.) I can't take credit for any of it but I will wear the hell out of it.
