Never Say Never

I was very adamant about never wearing bright colored pants. I had never worn a pair before and they didn’t stand out as part of my own ‘fashion style’.  While shopping at Target I found a rack of clearance pants. I saw the 11.48 price tag on the magenta pants and figured I would try a pair on.  To my surprise, they were comfortable and I actually liked them! I did have to size up about 3 sizes as they run very small. Simple lesson-Take a risk and try a style you thought just wasn’t “you.”

    • Hi Danielle! I go to the Goodwills in Colorado Springs.There is one that is my “treasure” store, as I always find amazing items and deals. I have also gone to a Denver Goodwill. I look up reviews ahead of time to see where local thrifters recommend going. I have also gone to Plato’s Closet.

      • There is a Goodwill in Fond du Lac. You can probably find a wider variety of items in either Oshkosh or Appleton. I did a search and found Fox Valley Thrift store in Appleton has good reviews.

  1. Had to share Michelle that about a month ago I found those exact pants at Target for about $5. I appreciate what you posted about how the size runs because you were so right. I’m just looking for an excuse to wear them. This is my absolute favorite color to wear! I love your blog by the way. You make style look so practical and put together! Take care!

    • Megyn-Thanks for your kind words.That is awesome you found a pair for $5.00…What a bargain find! You can where them anywhere, even to the grocery store! I hope you wear them soon!
