Thrifted Anthropologie is the best kind of Anthropologie in my books. Lately, I’ve been hooked on older Anthro classics, like this skirt, and thanking my lucky stars that thrift shops in town are a veritable treasure trove of such goodies. I’m not always lucky enough to find pieces in my size, but no matter — I can be surprisingly resourceful. For example, I took advantage of the fact that this skirt is pleated to do a no-sew alteration; I just pinned the extra fabric in the back with a safety pin as an extra pleat, and wore a sweater to cover the waistband — and no one was any wiser.
I love the muted palette of the skirt, and can’t wait to try different outfit combos in the future, but I kept things pretty simple this time around, as I had a (daytime) client function to attend. I got quite a few compliments, so I’m counting it a success. Thrifted Anthropologie — it really is the best.
