Vintage Look

11 November 2010













Does anyone else get a warm fuzzy feeling inside
when almost everything you are wearing is thrifted/vintage?
I know I do! It is just wonderful knowing that each piece is
unique and special. I found this top, skirt and a few
other things at my local thrift store for only five dollars.
It was just perfect, because I feel like I have been searching
for a color like this nude-ish pink for an eternity! I can't wait
to pair it with camel and denim pieces.

Oh and I also just wanted to say thank you to everyone
who reads this blog. Your kind words are so meaningful
to me, and I appreciate every single one of them. It is
so great to be part of a community that inspires me so much,
and I can give inspiration back. Hooray for fashion bloggers!

The blouse is beautiful! Looks so good with your skin and hair tone!

Giulia said...

The colour of that blouse is beautiful! And I think that you overseas bloggers are just too lucky that you have thrift stores. Here we have 'vintage shops', basically the same thing as thrift shops, but with prices starting at 25 euros. Sigh. I am glad you're back to regular posts :)

This outfit really makes me smile. It is so feminine yet has these kitschy flavor to it. It is basically perfect. And we posted similar trends today: vintage scarf tied onto a purse! It really is a fantastic way to add some print to a look! I think this is on of my fave looks of your!

Ah! I wish I knew what that was like! Grand Rapids, MI is seriously lacking in thrift stores and our Goodwill is full of t-shirts and smelly cotton turtlenecks. Boo!

This post totally rubs salt into my lack-of-vintage wound ... because you look fabulous. Per usual.

TIFFANY thegirlwithafeather said...

This is such a pretty outfit! And all vintage outfits are the best! They just feel so much more special than mass-produced outfits! And you know you won't bump into some other girl on the street wearing the same thing, so that's a nice bonus!
