Platform Sandals with Altered Skirt
I bought this skirt for $4 at an OC thrift shop. It was originally a maxi skirt, but I’ve recently become a big fan of midi-length skirts so I cut off half of the fabric and hemmed the end. I paired the piece with my latest obsession, chunky platform sandals.
I bought these cheetah print shoes at a Buffalo Exchange store in Costa Mesa for $15. I saw them, tried them on, and I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to snag something so fun and unique to any type of sandal I have owned before. I probably wouldn’t buy a pair of cheetah print platform sandals at the mall, but the great condition of the sandals combined with the price made me want to give them a try. Good thing I took the chance because I really like them!
The platforms feel like I have a wedge due to the height it gives me, but the sole has no arch so it’s comfortable to walk. I think these are a great example to show that you can find very hip, trendy things at thrift shops! The mod style of the platform with the simple horizontal striped buckles are totally in, and it’s awesome that I was able to find a pair that’s secondhand. Although I love to find vintage pieces, it’s nice to incorporate pieces like these platforms which can give your outfit an updated, youthful life.
I had a beautiful day yesterday which included brunch with friends, a massage, and dinner with my sister. This outfit is so cute, yet so comfy that I wore it to get my massage. The ring I’m wearing was a gift my mom found at a thrift shop in Orange County. I like the unique geometric design and colored accents. I’ve honestly been so pleased with my thrifted finds, I hope this can give you some inspiration to shop secondhand!
