So Preppy so Pink! Polo and JCREW ~ Thrift Store Style

Now maybe it is my age but I grew up being enthralled with “preppy”.  My grandma would get the Lillian Vernon catalog and that was my Preppy Bible!  Remember we did not have the internet, the TV shows were more like “Bewitched” or “I Dream of Jeannie”.   One of the hottest movies was “The Breakfast Club” and James Spader was ALL THAT!

Unfortunately it wasn’t in my budget and you couldn’t really find these items in a thrift store … if I would have only known about “recreating” an outfit from a magazine or catalog.

I was so excited when I found this pair of JCREW chino shorts for my daughter @ San Antonio Goodwill for only $2.99 (retail $45) and to complete the outfit, I found this pink, sleeveless POLO shirt for $3.99.  (retails $89.50) … let me say that I almost fell over when she said “Yes, I will wear pink!”.  A grand total of $6.98 from GOODWILL .. how awesome is that!!!!!!!!!!!!
