Yesterday we went thrifting at Thrift Town in SF.  Usually it takes us hours only to end up with nothing, but this time we hit the jackpot. We both found ugly mom-jeans begging to be DIYed into high-waisted shorts and Mallory finally found the perfect maxi skirt.  Our favorite thrift of the day was also the most expensive, a $10 silk robe.  After thirty minutes in Thrift Town, our perception of cheap and expensive had already been skewed, so neither of us wanted to pay the WHOLE $10.  Finally, we decided to go in together and share the robe.  We cut it short to make a kimono and used the spare fabric to make two turbans. Upon returning, and after a trip to target, we realized how cheap $10 actually is, and now cannot decide who gets to wear it first...stay tuned.

Oh yeah, this is how cool the mom jeans were before we cut them  :)  We also bought matching $12 clogs at Target

  4. Haha, that's cute that you guys have matching shoes now. Great job with the jeans. I wish I had more opportunities to go thrifting. Also, good ideas for reworking the silk robe.
