So I bought some fabulous black pants at the thrift store for $6 (plus some capris that fit perfectly for $1.50). And despite what I said about not being that concerned about the preowned nature of thrift store clothes, I'm having a seriously OCD reaction to them, including internet trawling for what terrible diseases I could get from said pants. This despite having a wardrobe made up of basically nothing but thrift store clothes.

I washed them, as I think most people do. But normally I would let them sit for about a week- somehow that's the magic time-and then I often wash them again before wearing.

I'm wearing them tomorrow, though. I am.


  1. Good for you! I'm always hesitant about buying second hand clothing as well but I give them a good wash and try to put it out of my mind.

  2. Good for you. I could never do it.
