Almost Again

Beaded skirt? Thrifted (similar here) Shirt? Thrifted Shoes? Aldo, thrifted Necklaces? Thrifted and Cuba Purse? Tignanello, thrifted

I was debating what shoes to wear with this outfit. Should I go for the more put together look of high heels or the comfortable, casual vibe of my beloved (and well worn) oxfords? I ended up going with the oxfords. I thought that would make everything I was wearing 100% thrifted. I've come close before, having a completely thrifted outfit but I don't think I have ever achieved perfection. And for a fashion blogger who yaps a lot about thrifting, a completely second hand look would be big moment. It would be like getting my thrift doctorate...without the years of study, the letters added to my name or the proud parents...

It wasn't until an hour later that I remembered two of my necklaces were not from a thrift store but rather from a vacation in Cuba. I could have taken those necklaces off and brought back an all thrifted outfit. I could have lied about the necklaces and not slept at night. Or I could have kept the necklaces on and continued working towards thrift perfection. And so I chose to keep working towards that ultimate goal. Life is about the journey, or something like that...

Your skirt is awesome-- Is it printed, or is that the texture?

I, too, am working towards thrift perfection...

YiPpeE SkiPpeE!! I love this casual look. Was thrifting for Oxfords last weekend, but haven't found any just yet. They are a great alternative Imo.

I almost had an entirely thrifted/vintage outfit today myself (except for shoes and purse, two rather substantial parts of one's outfit). I've done a lot of thrifting lately, and I've been very inspired to do so by your blog. I used to be one of those people who was freaked out by thrift stores, but now I feel silly for paying full price for cheap clothing instead of getting nice stuff for a discount. So thanks!!

I love when I come to discover that an entire outfit of mine is thrifted. It's like my own little mountain that I hiked all myself--in thrifted stilletos. I came really close today, but my jewelry and boots were gifted to me--does that count?

At any rate I love two things here--one the outfit. I am a sucker for chambray tops and pretty skirts. Two, I love that you are continuing to blog with all that you are going through. Hope things are going well for you.

Aagh this outfit is so great! And I definitely don't think a measly necklace or two ruins what is otherwise thrift perfection ;)
