Today is Everybody, Everywear: The Thrift Edition. A special collaboration with Yen from My edit (who, let's face it, is The Thrift Queen.) Wahoo! Thrifting! This is also my area of expertise, if I do say so myself. Give me a thrift store, $15, and 15 minutes and I will come out with a whole outfit. Guaranteed. So today's outfit is entirely thrifted:
Blouse - thrifted Banana Republic
Skirt - thrifted vintage (no brand tag)
Sandals - thrifted vintage Candie's
I would say 99% of my outfits contain at least one thrifted element, so it was hard to narrow this down from over three years of documenting my outfits... But here they are, some favorite, favorite thrifted finds (click on the photo to go to my flickr if you want the rest of the outfit details):
Awesome pink striped swan sweater... about a million belts, that I occasionally throw on by the handful
This coat and this dress are adorbs, especially together... day-glo nightie I rarely wear but love
Prolly the only overalls I will ever wear... a very Hansel and Gretel dress (and motorcycle boots!)
Tiger print oversized pajama t-shirt with tiger head... and this blouse that goes with EVERYTHING!
Handmade dress that was apparently made just for me, decades ago... this skirt that goes with EVERYTHING and hello? The boots!
Mysterious sailor shirt from France... dress made for sipping lemonade on the porch
Authentic Vietnam War protest Army shirt... Horse. Head. Cardigan.
The cutest, easiest vintage summer dress... a ton of little boys blazers and my Marni cropped pants
Vintage yellow plaid pants, OMG... wool pleated rainbow skirt (and that awesome belt too)
Insane dress that comes in handy for B&W affairs... these 1950s glasses frames (got the lenses swapped out), shirt, pants, belt, shoes, etc. It's all thrifted.
Um, seriously there are a million more... things I wear everyday (like shoes, plain skirts and shirts, my million bangles), statement items, designer items, vintage items, SO MUCH GOOD STUFF. Plus, home stuff too! So go get your hiney to the thrift store! And if you're too lazy or grossed out by it or live in an area where thrifting is difficult or expensive, then go hit up my etsy and "nail my leftovers."
