Being the thrifty shopper that I am, I’m always looking for great pieces in unexpected places. Even though I am (gasp!) 28 years old (rather then the teenybopper demographic they appeal to), I still recieve about 3 Alloy catalogs a month in my mailbox and as much as I hate all the trees they waste sending out so many catalogs, I do quite often find some nice items that I’d like to buy while perusing them on my front steps. These are the 6 key items i’ve determined I need to have in my wardrobe soon.
The shape of these jeans is perfect to pair with this seasons hot platform sandals and a floppy hat.
I’m always on the lookout for a replacement pair of black suede boots, (which are a staple in my wardrobe)because I tend to wear down the heels of mine rather quickly, not sure why, maybe I drag my feet or maybe thats what I get for being “thrifty”. Either way, these boots are the perfect height and the rounded stack heel is the perfect complement to the suede. I’d probably wear them with this plaid dress and some tights.
DEEP-V RUFFLE ONE-PIECE LONG TORSO – $40.90
I’ve been on the lookout for just the right one piece bathing suit to come along that has a certain something about it to make it unique and also flattering. This suit seems to do just that, plus I love the fact that they offer a long torso version as well as the shorter one. I’m always having trouble with one piece suits being too short because i have a longer torso.
And I chose these two pieces because I have zero shorts that didnt start out as a pair of jeans and I’m in dire need of one that actually fits the way shorts are meant to fit because cutoff jeans tend to be tighter around the thighs then regular shorts. These are just the right color wash and i like the little bit of destruction. The crop top just has a really interesting back and it appeals to me. I picture it with a high waisted skirt or pants.
All 6 of these items add up to a total of $200.40 and there are always alloy discount codes available online on sites like retailmenot and alloy offers free shipping for orders over $75 .
