Dress: thrifted vintage
Bag: thrifted vintage
I decided I needed to challenge myself to create at least one all-thrifted outfit per week, so my blog now has its first feature: Thrifted Thursday. I’ll allow myself to wear non-thrifted tights or socks if necessary in my Thrifted Thursday outfits, though, because I don’t own any thrifted tights or socks. I’m going to try to stick with thrifted shoes even though I don’t have many yet. I might have to cheat in that area at some point, but I’m at least going to try not to!
Today was absolutely perfect. I probably sound bipolar after my last post, but it was. I met Ani and Emily for lunch to celebrate Ani’s birthday, and after we ate we talked forever and walked around Urban Outfitters, Wasteland (they sell vintage at prices I definitely could afford if I had a job) and this weird $1 bookstore in downtown Burbank. We also visited Yogurtland, where I had their newish Guava Pineapple Tart flavor. It was SO good, but I like anything with guava.
I’ve blogged about the dress I’m wearing before, right here, but I’ll mention again that I found it at Quality Thrift for...$5.99! Their store doesn’t specialize in vintage at all, but it seems like every time I go there I find one or two cool vintage items hiding somewhere. I added the green pullover because I’ve been wanting to create a yellow and green outfit lately. I’ve been seeing this color combination on Chictopia and other blogs and I think it’s perfect for spring.
The overall ’70s look of this outfit was also inspired by Freaks and Geeks, which Jasen and I have been watching this week. I know it’s set in 1980-1981, but there’s some serious ’70s style going on in that show. I’ve seen so many cool color combinations that I want to try. I especially like the outfits worn by the Cindy Sanders cheerleader character and Maureen Sampson, the “cool” girl who hangs out with the geeks for a while. The female teachers wear some cute outfits too. I can’t believe that show was cancelled after only 18 episodes. It’s so smart and real and painful and I just love it.
