Ten must-have items you can find at any thrift store

Forget shopping at your favorite department store this weekend; that thrift shop down the street has everything you need to be fabulous this season.  Consider adding these ten items to your must-have list for spring 2013.

 1. Denim button-up shirt

Long sleeve, button-up shirts are versatile pieces that should be a part of any wardrobe. Dress it up by tucking it into a flouncy skirt and adding a chunky necklace or dress it down by pairing it with a pair of floral printed jeans, flats and a solid colored scarf.

Denim button-up shirts look even better when the sleeves are rolled up to the elbows.

2. Flouncy polka-dotted skirt

One of the must-have pieces for spring is a short, polka dot skirt. Mix these dots with stripes or other patterns or play it safe with a colored solid.

Black and white isn’t just only reserved for film noir.  This season, it’s everywhere: on the runway, magazines and red carpet events. Add some zebra hues to your closet and wear with head-to-toe black and white or spice it up with your favorite jewel tone.
