Seeing double

You know you've hit the jackpot when you're able to find two of the same item of clothing in one thrift trip. Usually thrift stores are run on whatever people happen to drop off and donate, and usually people don't have two of the same thing. My sister Monica and I came home anything but empty handed after luckily finding the same pair of H&M leather shorts in different colors in our own respective sizes. If this doesn't call for a collaborative photo shoot I don't know what does.

 As you can see, the shorts are almost identical but worn in such different styles. Pleather is easily dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize it so leather shorts and tights are a perfect starter for any kind of outfit you put on this winter.

blouse: delia's
cardigan: abercrombie
shorts: h&m @ buffalo exchange
belt: sears
earrings: mode land bijoux
tights: payless shoes
flats: sears

sweater: target
necklace:  ny & company
belt: wet seal
shorts: h&m @ buffalo exchange
tights: urban outfitters
boots: flea market

sweater: tommy girl
belt: marshall's
necklace: ralph lauren @ buffalo exchange
leg warmers: wet seal
boots: burlington coat factory

Here is a master outfit that can be worn with either pair of shorts.

Get yourself into another layer of (fake) skin; the weather now calls for pleather (;
