J Crew Inspiration Strikes Again: Pink Pencil Skirt

It should come as no surprise that I LOVE J Crew. One of the things that really caught my at the store opening were their colorful pencil skirts. 

At over $100 a pop-it was not exactly my option right now. So what is a gal to do? Why thrift it, of course?! I found my pink skirt brand new  from Target (with Target tags still on) at Goodwill for $5!! Target sells its over due clearance to Goodwill so I frequently get their items for super cheap (just like these new ballet flats).

Skirt; Merona by Target (Goodwill for $5)
Button-up Shirt; Forever 21 (Forever 21 $3.50)
Sweater; Express (Savers for $8)
Ankle Booties $6
Sunnies; Forever 21 (Forever 21 $3.80)
Lipstick; Sephora (Sephora makeup kit two years ago)

  1. What a great idea, I love being able to find great clothes for less...I love that sweater!

  2. The sweater was tricky to style because it had a HUGE neck that stuck straight up high. So I managed to fold the front under and it made a stable boatneck. I was not going to give up because I LOVED that pattern!

  3. Love the color of that skirt...and that sweater too!
