Thrifted Thursday No. 3


Dress worn as top: thrifted
Skirt: thrifted
Belt: I think thrifted, given to me by my sister
Shoes: thrifted
Bag: thrifted

I’m just going to come right out and say this is one of my favorite outfits that I’ve ever worn. And an elderly woman walked up to me and complimented it. I LOVE when that happens! I might have cheated a little bit as far as the “thrifted” requirement goes, but I don’t really think I did. I say that for two reasons: (1) the dress I’m wearing as a top came from Crossroads, which doesn’t call itself a thrift store, but this dress was used when I bought it and I traded some of my clothes for it, and (2) Hillary gave me this belt a long time ago and I’m pretty sure she originally found it at Quality Thrift, but I don’t know for sure; either way it belonged to someone else before me. Ugh, I write WAY too many sentences using the coordintating conjunction “but.” I’ve been noticing that in my blog posts. I don’t know what it means...I guess that I make a lot of excuses? I’ll try to stop, but I don’t know if I can. Oh. Whoops.

  4. My writing style becomes very monotonous as well. As for the outfit, it's your best yet (in my opinion)! You were blessed with a tiny waist, and this outfit really accentuates your lovely body. I'm obsessed with the color of your skirt.

  9. I love this outfit too. The muted colors and pleated skirt are just so perfect. The whole ensemble looks so breezy and comfortable too. By the way, not that it matters, but I'm an ENFJ. I find it interesting when people list their Meyers Briggs :)

  10. Very cute outfit. I love it too when old ladies compliment me. The other night I was wearing a pink and white polka dot skirt and a lady told me it reminded her of the 50's. I was not going for Johnny Rocket's, but if she liked it...I really like your style and your blog. I hope you will visit me.

  11. I've noticed that I use the word "so" constantly on my blog--both as a conjunction and as an intensifier. Kind of ridiculous, especially since I don't really seem to use that word terribly often in real life. I'd imagine that every blogger has some kind of quirk that bugs them about their writing.

    Your outfit is impeccable as usual and really accentuates your tiny waist and beautiful hourglass shape. I love the moss color of your skirt, and your shoes are adorable! <3

  15. before I read your post I was all "WOW this has to be the prettiest outfit I've seen her rock!" and I'm glad you agree :D the pale pink of the top with the almost musty green of the skirt works GORGEOUSLY. The type of colorpairing that was stumbled upon by inspiration and looks so fresh!

  16. *You are correct on the Quality Thrift assumption. The belt was a whole buck fifty.

    Great outfit sister!
