I have had some pretty extraordinary luck in thrifting lately. I now have a full time job, so I have been focusing on finding chic things that will fit into the constraints of my work dress code. I shouldn’t really say constraints, as it’s not that rigid for women, but I have to say withing dressy to business casual. When you think about it 40 hours seems like only a small portion of an entire week, but it really feels like most of my time is spent at work, so when I get home, I have no reason to change and nowhere to go, so I am feeling fashion deficient lately.
Anyways, enough of my blubbering, and on to my treasures!
Sadly, as awesome as this skirt is, it doesn’t fit me. And it is badly damaged, but I am going to use it for my mannequin (who seems to fit it perfectly) for the purposes of pairing it with other items for etsy photographs. This skirt is definately old. I am thinking at LEAST 1960s era.
I found this black denim vest at the animal shelter thrift store for just $3. I’m beginning to have quite the vest collection! The maxi skirt buttons up all the way in the front and also cost $3 from the same thrift store. Here is a better shot:
I can wear it to the beach or to work. I like that kind of versatility.
I had hoped this awesome velvet skirt would fit me, but unfortunately it’s a little too big. This one is probably going to find its way into my etsy store.
This is a better representation of the skirts color. Reminds me of red wine. (Yum.)
I am madly in love with this skirt. Of course, with my dumb luck, the first time I wore it I popped a button off of it, so I have to sew a new one on, but that’s because I am not used to wearing maxi skirts and caught the hem when walking. Here’s a closer look at the print:
Well, that’s it for now. I have a batch of vintage jewelry to show off next time. Stay tuned, and let me know what you think of my finds with a comment!
