Take for example these pants:
Orange chinos $3 VV Boutique
Scored at the 50% off sale - awesome!!
I love me some coloured pants, but even an inexpensive (regular retail) pair might not get enough airtime for a good cost-per-wear finale. However, at the VV Boutique price, I'm certain to get cost-per-wear under a dollar - which is my goal for all pieces (regular retail and thrifting), with the exception of special occasion pieces (e.g., Christmas dresses). I also like to consider how many ways I can wear a piece. Before this adventure, I would aim for 5 ways minimum; now I like to find at least one style per dollar cost. So here are three ways to wear my $3 pants:
Striped Gap tee $6, gray V-neck $10 Joe and scarf $5 H&M
Gray flats $4 VV Boutique
I tried to be all casual about showing my under-layer just like this model.
But in reality I would straighten things out. Just wanted you to know it was on purpose.

Black velvet blazer from Target circa 2004
Sperry Top-Sider Hayden Penny Loafer $9.80 VV Boutique!!!!!

Fuchsia belt $4 VV Boutique

And that is just the tip of the orange-pant iceberg!! I actually wore them to work with a different top last week but didn't have time to snap a photo...
Conclusion: these orange pants are a great VV Boutique buy and welcome addition to my wardrobe!
