She Thrifted

thriftchic

Meet Anh from 9to5Chic. She thrifted that vintage YSL skirt.
Anh's blog is full of simple and chic looks. She wears a mix of high-end labels and fast fashion pieces. To be honest, there aren't a lot of thrifted pieces on her blog but that is fine, as this skirt is the epitome of thrift perfection. A good quality pencil skirt in an interesting colour can be worn for years... And the way that Anh paired the mustard skirt with the eggplant sweater makes me want to say 'swoon'. Sadly, I have a self imposed restriction on the word 'swoon' but that weak in the knees feeling is definitely there...

Throws hand at forehead backwards, slings head back, and sighs... I swooned without saying it, but I did it.

Wow, I can only imagine the joy of stumbling upon a YSL pencil skirt in a thrift store.

The color combo is fantastic! I love the shape of the skirt and the unexpected color. Might seem more common to wear a bright top and dark skirt, but I love the reverse!
