what i got for $2.99


cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft   shirt: thrifted  jeans: urban outfitters  oxfords: nordstrom

I mentioned last week that I had one of the best thrifting experiences of my life recently with Carina. This wasn't just because of the great company, but because I snagged a leopard shirt for $2.99.

Leopard is a little scary. I've had a pair of leopard flats for ever... and when I say forever, I mean I love the style so much, that I bought a new pair of the exact same style last year. But leopard as a shirt seems a little intense. But a cropped, under $3 version just seemed perfect.

And it turns out the shirt is even more perfect because it looks very similar very similar to a leopard shirt at anthropologie priced significantly higher. Even I can tell that it's at least 5 times more expensive... and I'm terrible at math. (Like count-on-my-fingers terrible.)
