Y’all this week’s #ipd20dollarthriftchallenge is with Houston’s own thrift loving ladies Too Cheap Blondes! Houston thrift stores are filled with amazing items & we are here to share our love of thrifting in this awesome city. And this week’s outfit is a happy accident in some sorts…

But let’s talk about the outfits that the Houston thrift store duo that go by Too Cheap Blondes put together for the $20 thrift challenge! We all had to fight some rain for our challenge photos but I just love how Pippa & Jen are in front of one of my favorite Houston murals!

So the happy accident part of this vintage thrifted jacket is that as I was washing this beautiful coat (it had some heavy stains that came out with lots of soaking), my hubby (or maybe my son) put the coat in the dryer…with high heat! Ahhhh it shrunk, SO. MUCH. But it’s alright cause this once over-sized coat shrank to a perfectly fitting vintage coat dress!!! With the addition of some accessories, a complete look for under $20!

Jacket // Vintage // Family thrift center outlet store find $2
Belt // Michael Kors // Goodwill thrift store find $6.99
Shoes // Vintage // Family thrift center outlet store find $2
