So Saturday I went thrifting with my husband and some friends. I’ll be honest, my husband tends to have all of the thrifting luck in our family. I have found a few really nice things, but overall he tends to have the patience to find the really awesome stuff, and I just don’t. But Saturday I had some pretty amazing luck. I found a couple things I’ve been looking for for a while now, a knee length black leather skirt, and some chains for Sal’s layered necklace look. I also got a couple of really great bags. A vintage slouchy grey cross body leather bag that Erin says looks very Marc Jacobs and a vintage black leather bag with bamboo handle and toggle. Plus a great dress.
I wore the dress, chains and grey bag yesterday and was SO excited to take pics and show you my finds. But I stopped to get groceries on the way home and somewhere in there I snagged the dress on something and it got a huge tear all down the middle of the back. I didn’t even notice until I was on my way out the door with the tripod and Nathan asked what had happened. I was devastated and decided not to take pictures. Honestly I wasn’t even going to tell you about it, because I don’t particularly care for discussing the negative online, but I decided to tell you anyway, because I felt like if anyone would understand how sad I was, it was my fellow fashion bloggers. And I am still kinda sad about it. (Not too sad for a punny title though)
And with that, I’ll move on to pics I do have, which are from last Friday.
I love this top. I know a lot of people might think it’s too over the top costume-y, but I love it’s bright colors and forgiving cut.
I got it, and one like it for my BFF Alannah when I was on vacation in Cabo last year. And I love the shirt not only for the way it looks, but also for the memories.
