Midwestern hick???

Hello!!!! So I know this outfit may not be the most summery thing out there, but I like it. I am wearing a vintage Ralph Lauren plaid shirt that I bought at St. Vincent De Paul, a charity thrift store for $1.99. When I bought the shirt, it was weirdly perportioned. The waist was too big and the shirt too short. I fixed the waist problem, I just sewed a new but smaller hem on both side. The grey tank is from H&M for $12.95, and so are the zipper leggings! Leggings are going to be HUGE for fall, and I absolutely LOVE zippers. They just add the whole grunge rock feel to it. The nerd glasses are some broken sunglasses from Wet Seal that I got the lenses out of. I needed some nerd glasses for a movie at school, and didn't have any. Found the glasses and VOILA! I had myself a nice pair of attractive nerd glasses. The white ballet flats with bows are from an Animal Ark charity store that I got really cheap! It feels good to shop at stores where you know your money is going toward a good cause. Once. I found these adorable mustard yellow Gucci sandals there. I wanted them so bad, but at that time I didn't have any money and my mom didn't want to pay $20 on sandals! "But mom! They're Gucci!", I complained. She didnt care, and used the "your dad will kill me" card. *sigh*

So yes, I do realize that this outfit may have a... midwestern Hick feel to it, but I think it's a nice, easy, comfortable thing to wear to school or anywhere really... Plaid has become really popular now, and many stores have been putting them out on their racks. However, I DO NOT want to pay $25+ on something I can buy at a thrift store for $5 or less. Plus, it's like recycling your clothes. How green! Also, you get the real deal at thrift stores, not some new fake plaid shirt.
Well kids, I must be going now. Don't want to bore you with anymore thrift store stories....
