Back of the closet: Cut offs
It seems this article of clothing has been in my closet for a really long time. In fact, after looking
at these photos, I think I've had them for too long and it's time to retire them! What started off as
Levi jeans, became a pair of cut off shorts. Next I think I'll save them for a future clothing swap
so they can find a good home with someone else for a while. But for now, they get their last few
minutes of glory as the feature on this post.
I pieced together this little mod outfit (based around the cut offs since it was so warm that day) for
an afternoon out with my friend Amy a couple of weekends ago. The overall "nod to mod" seemed
appropriate since we were hitting up my favorite Bham vintage store. So I went with that approach
when editing the photos, too. It might be a bit "much" but I thought it was a cool effect to give the
photography, so I kept them that way!
Here's the cheapskate outfit breakdown:
1. Levi cut offs, ??
2. Pastel yellow top, thrifted ($2.99)
3. Black oxfords, TJ Maxx ($12.99)
4. Bag, Africa ($15.00)
5. Scarf, gifted
6. Vintage Ray Ban sunglasses, gifted (thanks Mom!)
7. Bangles, gifted (thanks Ashley!)
8. Thumb ring, Charlotte Russe ($2.99 - part of stackable set)
9. Vintage cocktail ring, gifted (thanks Cathy!)
