thrifty.

i don't go thrifting nearly as often as i used to, and it's mainly because i just can't seem to find all the good vintage treasures that used to fill the thrift shops. now, when i do go and find a gem that's in good condition, and more importantly, fits me, it's like i won the lottery! i can't really hide my emotions (at all), so i always wonder if i have a ridiculous smile plastered on my face when i come across something i know has been waiting for me. here are my latest finds (and they're not actually all that new, i've just been forgetting to share)...

the first blouse is my absolute favorite and fits like it was made for me. that and the last blouse are soft, lightweight gauze fabric which is my favorite during warmer months. the leopard print skirt makes me feel just enough like a guns n'roses fan without going overboard. last, i love the cardigan, but am not insane enough to wear it during a virginia summer, not even in the middle of the night. it'll have to wait until fall!

sadly, these beautiful vintage moccasin ankle boots do not belong to me, but i'd give a non-vital organ to own them. i've been searching high and low at the thrift shops for these exact boots without luck, and here they are, in my size, dangling in front of my face; but alas, i'm on a shopping ban.

now that my pity party is out of the way, here's a little vintage we can all enjoy. thanks, afp! (thanks, maddy for reminding me to add this, i am NOT in that picture! it's just random silliness).

  1. i love those moccasins. they are absolutely gorgeous! i got in a car accident when i was 17 and hurt my Achilles and it hurt to walk. so i couldn't wear shoes that were too tight, or too tall. it would just hurt more. so i settled to wearing moccasins EVERYDAY.

    and i loved it!

    i hope you're having a great tuesday!

  11. good finds lady! the cardi is my favorite, but everything is super cute.

    i actually read your post this morning and you inspired me to go thrifting and i found a few treasures myself - yay! i'll blog them soon.

    i miss you lady! and i loved getting an e-mail from you. i'll definitely e-mail you back, but it'll probably be a bit...this week is so packed!

    hope you're having a good week my dear!

    xo!

  12. That blouse with the stitching reminds me of something my grandma used to wear. They're so lovely in the summer!

  13. What cute finds!

    And my face is an open book, too. Which sucks. Basically, if my buying something had to come down to me bartering with the salesperson, and if the something was something I just HAD to have (you still with me?), I would be lost. Or wind up paying a zillion dollars.

    And also? Thrifting in Miami sucks. Can I thrift with you, pretty please?
