A Grungy Thrifty Thursday

…and the memories continue with yet another thrifty style theme plucked directly from my fashion past:

In the early 90’s (& beyond) I was heavily into the whole grunge style scene, along with that oh-so-cool Seattle Sound & the movie Singles, that alternative trend has stuck with me throughout the years. To this day most of my daily ensembles still consist of chunky-clunky-comfy boots paired with boldly patterned vintage dresses & cool tights (although nowadays I don’t tend to shred my legwear as I did in my younger years).

Hat (gift) €0 – Grandpa sweater (inherited & refashioned) €0 – Vintage Dress (thrifted & shortened) €1 – Tights (1982) €1 – Suede Lace-ups (thrifted years ago) €3

Total outfit cost: €5

Quick Tip: If you don’t have time to shrink the sides of a bit-too-big-dress (or just don’t want to) simply gather the excess fabric together in the centre of the back & pin with a funky brooch!

Snag some thrifty inspiration (+ join up & share your love of second hand) over on my Gone Thrifting facebook page!

As always feel free to take part in the thrifty fun & vote for the upcoming themes…

  1. Gah I always love what you come up with and your facial expressions too 🙂 The brooch idea truly is genius!

  2. Ok first of all, LOVE this look. Second, would love even more to see you rockin some shredded legwear lol. And THIRD – you are a genius, literally, a genius. Pinning back the sides with a fun brooch is the perfect was to make something fit better (sometimes sewing it can be difficult for me), will definitely be trying it out!

    • Cheers Miche…altho at 40 I’m pretty sure my days of shredded leg gear are over I’m afraid 😉

      *I’ve only been sewing for about 3 years so that brooch trick, a lil’ something my Grandma showed me when I was a mere lassie, was my go to clothing-shrinker for years! – even with my bit of sewing talent it’s still an awesome quick fix 😀

Don't be shy...lemme know what you think...
