Happy Wednesday! I thought I'd show you an outfit made mostly of old pieces since my last post was full of new things. This rose print dress was one of my first thrift finds from a few years back when I really started getting into thrifting. It was definitely $1 or less at the thrift store outlet around here. Yes. A thrift store outlet. It's completely sheer and has the most horrendous puffy yet too long sleeves. The second button pops open all the time too, yet I've held onto it. I think that's mostly because it looks so good with this red blazer I also thrifted, but also because it reminds me of the days when I thrifted all the time.
I wore this dress and blazer together years ago before I had this blog. It was about time to pull these pieces out of the closet again! This time I styled it a bit differently with gray tights and my cutout boots/flats. (What are these shoes considered anyway? I just like them.)
dress: thrifted | blazer: ralph lauren - thrifted | tights: forever 21 | shoes: boohoo
One reason I enjoy recording my outfits is because the styles can vary so much. There must be a common thread to my general style but there is a wide range of things I like wearing. I dress according to how I feel that day! Sometimes I want to channel Debbie Harry and other times I want to rock a retro novelty print dress.
I appreciate people who have a signature look but that'll never be me. I like too many things. Style is just fun to me. Dressing my own body is a creative outlet. I think it always will be. Have you seen the "Advanced Style" documentary? I want to be those cool ladies when I'm old. If you haven't seen it, check it out on Netflix. I identified with so many of the things those women said about fashion and style, so you might too!
Sorry I was absent from the blog on Monday. If I disappear it's most likely because I'm preparing for a job interview. Monday was my boyfriend's birthday too, so I spent the evening with him tasting some beers at a local growler shop and having dinner together. He's the best. It's been a busy week already! I'm back to my usual blog schedule now though.
Anyway, I hope you're having a wonderful week!
