She sells seashells

This was the find of all finds from thrifting with Mr. T on Saturday. I seriously did a little jig in Arc's Value Village when I found this vintage pearl collar. Even better? Pink tags were 50% off so it was only $6!

 Collar - thrifted
Sweater - Old Navy
Belt - thrifted
Skirt - thrifted Banana Republic
Tights - Target
Shoes - MIA

And... here is the new screen I made! It took forever to finish because it was hard to draw accurately for a while after my Lasik. I think my vision is finally at 20/20 now (when I went for my post-op two weeks ago, I was at 20/30). So now the man with a beard of bees can join his special lady with a beehive hairdo and live happily ever after. Or something. I'll add both a yellow shirt with dark grey ink, and a dark grey shirt with yellow ink to the shop tonight! And one for men! Here is the test print of the dude... and his lady, to show what color scheme the final shirts will be!

Yay! Bees!

I'd never given detachable collars a second thought until recently. Finds like this make me rething my indifference entirely. This one is awesomesauce, for sure!

SERIOUSLY darling outfit and I love the decor behind you as well. I'm following your blog on Bloglovin and eagerly awaiting for vintage-inspired darling looks.

I love the beehives-drawings. Great concept.

oh, that collar is to DIE for! i have a lace one i found on etsy and i just can't figure out how to wear it - it's a weird length and i feel like it needs to look like it's part of the shirt i'm wearing to try it. blah. i think you've inspired me to just give it a shot! you look great!

The collar is a great find - and it's paired *perfectly* with that seafoam skirt. Makes me want to lay in the sun on the water! I love the echo shell shape of the belt.

I've been wanting a pearl collar for a few years now, ever since I saw one in a shop... priced at £40! Scandalous.

Babs said...

Great outfit! The colours work beautifully together.

Lauren @The Little Things We Do.... said...

this outfit is lovely, lovely, lovely. the seafoam skirt is perfect - and i like that it's kind of pleated, but it's a bit different which adds interest. the color scheme is great too. tres chic lady!
