If you saw on my Instagram story the other day, I found this $7 mustard denim jacket at Goodwill and decided to hack it into a similar jacket I really wanted from Urban Outfitters. However, this BDG version is $79, so I was so happy to find a much cheaper alternative. All I had to do was hack off half of the bottom and it was good to go! I paired it with a simple black tank top and these gorgeous green satin shorts (similar).
As of lately, I have had quite a difficult time shopping for clothes. As I grew older, I started spending less and less on clothes because I got more frugal as time passed. That is why I love going thrifting. If you look hard enough and maybe with a little DIY, you can find something similar to the piece you were eying in the store for a fraction of the price. I essentially saved myself $72 by patiently waiting and not purchasing that BDG jacket although I really wanted it. It is definitely a lesson to be learned!
