Thrift Gone Wild
Now in working at a consignment store we receive a wide variety of clothing and I’ve seen things you can’t imagine that people still have shoved in their closets. I have always rolled my eyes when velvet and animal prints show their ugly faces in the backroom. The ladies love them (a certain generation of course) but they really do love the wild prints and fabrics.
During my latest half price day thrifting trip in Ottawa I discovered this leopard print top by H&M. Naturally I just seem to love everything that is H&M – I now laugh when I’m drawn to something “Oh look, its H&M, go figure!” This top should never have caught my eye. With everything I believe in my interest in this top makes no sense. Unless of course, my age is becoming apparent and I’ve hit that age where (gasp!) I am being attracted to prints like this!
Haha in all seriousness though, I was surprised at how much I liked the top, but we must also take into consideration the feel, the cut, the print itself and naturally the styling of said top to keep it fresh and modern.
I surprised a lot of people when I arrived at work wearing this top, gold jewellery and vibrant coral red shorts. It was really fun but also very unique!
