Poppin' Tags 1: Shortalls for All

Today marks the first day of the Poppin' Tags fashion challenge! (Yes, it is inspired by Macklemore's "Thrift Store" song.) For the next week, I will wear only outfits from thrift or resale stores. Each individual item has to cost under $20, and there can be no repeats. I'll also share some of my treasure-hunting thrifty tips. Enjoy!

Say it ain't so - shortalls are back in style?! I always secretly hoped this 90s fashion fad would come back on trend. To start "Poppin' Tags," I found an awesome pair of short purple overalls at the Goodwill. I kept hunting through the racks until I landed on a purple floral chiffon blouse. The blouse gives the shortalls a much-needed 2013 update. Another option is to pair bibs with a simple tank and strappy sandals. I'm clearly not alone in my giddiness over the revival of this trend, as some of my favorite bloggers are also showing off their inner fly girls (check them out here: Darling TwoAllie's Fashion AlleyMz Cocoh's Files).

So, do you plan to try out shortalls/overalls version 2013? Tip: If you're on the fence about a trying a new (or old) trend, thrift stores let you test the waters with minimal risk and cost commitment! 
Shortalls $4.50, Blouse $3.99 from Goodwill

    1. Thanks Mila! That pic was taken the day I turned 16 and got my driver's license, wearing some shortalls for luck. Glad overalls are back in style!

  2. Your purple shortalls are great! And I can’t believe they were only $4.50!!! Amazing! You are a master of thrift shopping.

    1. Thanks Allie! I was pleasantly surprised by the price too! :)
