Mad Men Thrifting And A Convert
He found the suit and tried it on and told me he wasn't 'sure' about it. I told him he was crazy and looked amazing in the suit.
Mr TP: (opens fitting room door) What do you think?
Me: Get it, you look hawt! And, it's only a buck.
Mr TP: Uh, I don't know about it. I guess I will get it and you can just donate it back after I have worn it.
Fast forward to the night of the party. He gets the whole ensemble together and comes out into the hall to model the outfit and says, "I like this suit, it just needs a couple of alterations and I can wear it to the office". The whole night at the party he was getting compliments and in turn telling people how he got the suit for a buck, and he couldn't believe it, blah, blah, gonna wear it to the office, Goodwill is da bomb, etc.
I think I may have converted him to a thrifter!
P.S. My outfit: Dress, yard sale $1 and Purse, estate sale $4. Heels and jewelry: my own.
Who have you converted in to a thrift shopper?
