Nothing Like A Free Something


Outfit: Vest: Mommed, Blouse: Thrifted, Ralph Lauren, Belt: JcPenny, Skirt: Freepiled, Boots: Gifted

There's this college trend that's all the rage...okay I just say it's all the rage because I want to feel cool. Really there's just this small group of people that do what's called freepiling. There are tons of boxes of clothes in the basements of dorms and students go "freepiling"/shopping for things they want that others don't want anymore. I had to get in on this free stuff action so me and my girl April went freepiling and this pretty little skirt called out my name. There's nothing I love more than thrift store shopping but this comes in a close second because i get to find treasure for FREE! There's one more thing that resulted from the search, a pair of total mom jeans that are purple, don't worry in no time with a few nips and tucks you won't even suspect that they once sported the flat butt look. Stay tuned ladies...
