Thrifty Thursday: Tiger Camo and Cropped Pants

I believe tigers are already camouflaged in their environment. They probably don’t need to be olive drab as well in order to blend in. But when I saw this olive-colored, tiger-striped t-shirt, I couldn’t resist.

I’ve been digging the billowy cropped pants that 5′ 10″ waify models have been sporting on the runways and in magazines this summer. I wasn’t sure if I could pull off the look and I didn’t want to invest in a pair of trendy pants. So I did the next best thing: I found a pair of loose, tapered pants at Goodwill and ruched the last few inches of the outside seam. I hand-stitched gathers until they were the right length. I like them and I’ve been wearing them a lot but if I change my mind it was only a $5 investment.

What steals and deals have you found? Do you alter your finds or keep them as is?
