Here's what I'm wearing at work today for my costume, which is a generic Super Girl Hero type ditty. My pal and colleague Jill is Superman, or Superman's gal, depending how you look at it.
One of these outfits is thrift and the other isn't - can you guess which?
Natch, most of my outfit is thrift, and most items I wear in my every day life when I'n NOT super.
The red cashmere cape was $24.99 at Value Village, the short blue skirt was dug up at Goodwill yesterday for $5.99, the tights and top I had, and the funky disco belt was found at True Blue Vintage in the Junction (2919 Dundas St. West, no website yet) for $15 - thought it was pretty special.
The real deals were the blue suede boots made in Italy, bagged for $14.99 at Stretch Thrift on Pape Ave. in Toronto.
But I didn't win the contest, alas; Jill came in second.
Still I think thrift is pretty super. Maybe I should have called myself Shopping Girl?
Was your Halloween costume thrift or used?
