Recently, I was chatting with a friend.. and she said.. “The one thing I don’t like about your blog.. is that I can’t go buy all the things you wear because you have so many thrifted pieces. Can I just go thrifting with you?” I’m sorry.. I know.. I wish I could take everyone thrifting with me!
I happen to love the adventure of digging, and this love turned into an addiction which often results in some pretty unique finds. I know there are already some savvy thrifters out there… but for the ones who aren’t in thrift mode.. it isn’t magic.. it just takes some endurance, willpower and vision.
And.. if you don’t want to thrift.. start looking at vintage.. or at least small boutiques that carry unusual pieces. Collect your treasures and then, when dressing you will have interesting choices to add to an everyday look.
Such is the case with today’s look, I started with the maxi skirt and boots, and then I noticed my sweater-vest-coat.. and thought it would be fantastic to layer it into my look. The sweater-vest-coat was one of those thrift finds and without it I don’t think I would have been inspired to finish off the look with a belt, blazer and hat.
