thrifting for spring: style

one of my favorite brands is brooks brothers. one of my "i cant afford this so i will just be inspired" brands is the brooks brothers black fleece collection by thom browne.

pretty much all of what i see here in the bbbf spring 2012 collection are pieces i have seen in vintage shops and sometimes second hand stores. seeing it on the runway proves that style and fashion comes and goes. (by the by, i do have green pants already. lol.)

so guys and gals use some of your favorite brands and then hop into your local second hand shop to find a few pieces at a fraction of the cost.
