Do not try this at home.

There are certain things that people should not buy at thrift stores. Chief among them? Lingerie.


But I really, really wanted a bedroom jacket to wear with jeans or over lace dresses, and I knew that Savers was the place to find such a thing on the cheap. They have a whole rack of pajamas and other unmentionables.


So I did it. I checked my gag reflexes at the door and I bought a piece of used lingerie from Savers. I shudder to think what went on inside this bedroom jacket before this bedroom jacket came to live with me. Eeeew! Let's never think about that again!

I checked for questionable stains and ran a thorough sniff test. It passed and honestly? It was exactly what I had in mind. Since it was quite long, I hacked off twelves inches and pretended that I got this from some nice, sweet, small town department store BRAND NEW (lies!).

cami: Tara Jarmon for Target (last seen here) | bedroom jacket: thrifted, Savers | Charlie Baby Boot cut jeans: c/o Lucky Brand | sandals: c/o Bucco Capensis (here) | gold aviators: SoLa (same)

If you'll notice, everything else in this outfit post is new or was new to me originally. This means I'm only wearing one piece of barf inducing clothing. This should be one's limit, wouldn't you say?

Anyone else buy anything gross at the thrift store? No? Just me. Okay. I'll pretend I'm not ashamed.
