Vintage Advantage

I spent quite awhile tracking this long sold out skirt in spruce green from American Apparel.  Enchanted by that particular color and style I continuously checked back to see if it’s status had changed or it was suddenly available in my local brick and mortar American Apparel store.  As luck would have it, during a spontaneous stop in a thrift store a few weeks back, I stumbled upon this nearly identical number.  The color, length and pleating are equivalent to that of the American Apparel version, but I can’t help but find this piece to be even better for several reasons: it’s vintage and in flawless condition, it’s velvet, and best of all, it was only $1.99.  My belief in frequent, impulsive thrifting outings has only been reinforced.
