One thing I enjoy about thrifting is the chance to try out trendy things that I don’t want to spend a lot of money on. Now there is a danger to this as the version of mom jeans you will find in the thrift store are probably not going to win you any fashion prizes. Nonetheless, sometimes it works out. For example culottes. Since I know culottes are in right now (see here and here), and they appeal to my style sensibilities, I have been keeping an eye out for them. First I tried to shorten a pair of wide pants, but that did not work out so well. (I would show you but they are already at the consignment shop.) Then I stumbled upon these. These culottes do have a label but no fabric content or other information whatsoever! I have never heard of Green Almond and neither has Google from what I could tell. Furthermore, the label does not look particularly modern. Nonetheless, I thought they had the general shape of the culottes I had seen and they seem to be worth the price of a cup of coffee. (And I like my coffee black with no frothy additions.) I may shorten them a bit, but meanwhile I am delighted to have gotten culottes out of my system and into my closet! Do you depend on labels when you shop (thrifting or retail)? Would you buy something without knowing the fabric content or brand name?
