It's true. I'm all horseshoes when I am thrifting. I make some people sick, they can't go thrifting with me because my eyes glaze over and I'm hard to find under the stacks of fantastic thrown over my arms. If there is one certainty in my life, it is that I am a great shopper and maybe even a better thrifter. To keep me humble, I am terrible at basketball, even worse at golf, I still type with two fingers and I can't carry a tune. But boy can I shop.
I found these Marni cargos at Goodwill in my university days. Linda wrote about me finding them in her blog here. Yes, when I found them I started to yell 'Linda! Marni!' really loudly. In my excitement, I denied my upbringing, and forgetting that I was a lady, I did not use my inside voice. I think you can forgive my excitement, the pants were brand new, made of crisp yet soft cotton, had great design details and quality hardware... That, however, was not the embarrassing part... You see, I was screaming 'Linda! Marni!' at the girl beside me because I thought she was Linda aaaannnnndddd she wasn't. This girl must still be telling stories of the crazies at Goodwill... But my story is still better, it's called 'The Day I Found $8 Marni Pants at Goodwill.'
