So proud. Almost my whole outfit is thrifted, except for my bracelets and shoes. Though on a technicality, I feel like I could almost count my bracelets as thrifted because they are assembled from vintage paste stones.
Linda found this skirt when I chaperoned her on her first truly successful thrifting trip. I thought it was kinda cute on the hanger, I thought it was a bit better when I felt that it was cotton, the adorable factor jumped again when Linda showed me the pockets and then I finally tried it on and I fell in love. There were at least six of these skirts throughout the racks at Talize (all brand new, with tags), so I got a black one and a white one and Linda got a brown one. Once again, my smrt girl student discount took 10% off, so they were $4.50 each.
I went for a little contrast, so I paired the rather sensible shirt and belt with the playful skirt. Is it bragging if I say that I love how this turned out? The colours, the shape...love, love, love... Well, didn't love the fact that my right eye was still swollen from my incident with the killer bees, but thick-rimmed glasses did a great camouflage job. And yes, this belt is getting a lot of play, I've worn it for 4 of the last 5 outfit posts. I have to wean myself off...slowly.
