There's nothing quite like a thrifted knit.
Tip: Going in with a mission and a picture of what you want in mind is an important key to finding the perfect thrifted piece. I can quickly scan the endless rows of clothing, looking for that cable-knit fluff, and pick it out like a heat-seeking missile would the sun. Sometimes my radar is a bit off, but when it hones in on the perfect target--well, welcome to the next apocolypse. Thus, I have this thrifted knitted shawl/poncho/cape thingy that I can wear easily into the chilly start of Spring with a pair of shorts. Ditching the chunky scarf and stockings will take me even further into the Spring season.
My next mission? Make continuous stops at this great thrifting place you all might have heard about--The Thrift Collective.
