Thrifting for clothes can be a real cultural experience. Sure the racks tend to be full of eighties and nineties castoffs. If you are patient, you can find some real oddities hidden among the shoulder pads. This sari top was in the dress section. I fell in love with the color. Even Mama Thrift could see its possibilities (well, she didn't roll her eyes anyway.) It was only $4...well worth it.
