All that glitters is gold

15 April 2009









I found this oversize top thrifting the other day for only 3 bucks! It looks like it's right out of the 80's so obviously I had to buy it, and much like a small child, I am immediatly attracted to things that shine.

Please excuse me for my abscense, tests have most definitely gotten in the way! I have been studying my brains out as of late. Econ test tonight... wish me luck.

And just so you know, I'm on twitter!

Wearing: vintage top, f21 skirt & ankle boots

That shirt is so cool! I don't understand how people can find such great things while thrifting; maybe I fail because I'm in a small town.

lillian jayne said...

$3.00!!!?? Wicked find. I must go thrifting soon!

Amelia said...

I love the top. The sparkly neckline is the best. If all 80s stuff looked like this, I would be more inclined towards that decade.

Good luck on your test!
