1st Generation Thrifting becomes 2nd Generation Styles

Bought ten really nice skirts at the Texas Thrift Store. My husband and I, decided to just stop by and look, he bought nothing, I spent $55. The skirts range in price from $3.50 -$$9.98, which is a little pricey, but the high end skirts were silk, and three of them are nice quality leather. Each item was purchased with the idea to either  adjust the fit or do a total redesigning of their 1st generation look. Two of the skirts will become tops, (2nd generation look), the three leather skirts will be new purses, (2nd generation) which I desperately need. A russet paisley rayon blend skirt matches nicely with a vintage man’s sweater I brought earlier in the year. There is a brown linen with graphic circles in teal blue and neon green, that matches perfectly with a powder blue cotton jacquard weave shirt my husband purchased just to get the buttons.  Then there’s a 100% designer cotton knit skirt in large that will allow plenty of fabric for 2nd generation styling, while the paisley silk skirt that matches will become a new top (its 2nd generation look).

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."                      II Cor. 5:17
