Thrift Style Thursday // Thrifting on Trend







blouse // Worthingtons, thrifted
necklace // thrifted, Value Village
genie pants // Walmart
flats // Tommy Hilfiger, Winners


Genie pants are an interesting trend, aren't they? They feel like panama pants, and the thought is that if you wear them with a blouse, you'll be professional enough to wear them to work without your co-workers thinking you just got out of bed. I am not sure how I feel about this genie pant trend, so I figured that before I went out and invested in a pair, I'd (shamefully) look and see what the local Walmart had on the racks. 

Incidentally, the day I purchased these, was the same day my mother and I took a thrift binge through our little town. I found this hot pink Worthington's blouse for $3 at the Salvation Army (among some other goodies that I'll show off later). It's about as on trend as you can get, with the bright colour for spring, and the faux leather detailing on the mock pockets. And apart from the shoes - which were purchased new/full price, the outfit cost me a whopping $20. 

I'm not sure I'm rivalling any fashion magazines (which was Martyna's challenge for us this week), but I certainly used them for my inspiration.

  1. Very cute look! I've tried on a few of those harlem pants and haven't found any that I'm really digging on me yet - but these look really cute on you! Love the bright colored top too!

  2. I don't know how I feel about genie pants either but you raised a good point - they really do look professional enough for work with a blouse! Great pairing this week!

    1. Thanks, Miche! I don't know if my point was valid - I think I just wanted to wear something akin to pyjamas to work. :P

  3. Agreed. I'm not sure how I feel about them either, in general, but these look super cute on you and definitely professional enough for work. Maybe I'll have to give these a try myself! Also, we match this week!

  4. OK, I love the pants on you! I'm in the same boat where I'm not completely sure how I feel about them, but am warming up each time I see someone like you rocking their socks off in them ;) Seriously love this combo of polka dots and the hot pink as well. Super on trend without looking tacky or cheap (though definitely thrifty). Such a cute look!
