As a frequent secondhand store shopper, I'll let you in on one of my thrifting strategies. Rather than just walk in and look for anything that interests me, I'll sometimes scan the racks focusing on print or fabric, or both. For instance, I'll zone in on a specific criteria such as: silk, cashmere, velvet, animal prints, or floral prints.  Anyone else do this?

When I discovered this blouse, it was a triple jackpot. I was initially drawn to the floral print, and then I realized it was silk. A quick peek at the label and I was as ecstatic as in the photo where I'm jumping. Vintage Escada! I glanced at the price tag, where I happily saw that the blouse was $2.99.

The pajama-like shape and feel of the top lends it a level of comfort that I can always appreciate, and while it pairs easily with my skinny jeans, I envision it dressed up with a beaded jacket and A-line skirt for fancier endeavors.

I absolutely love it when thrift stores undervalue items like this, although how they determine their prices is a mystery to me.
