I mentioned last time I wore an item from online thrift store Twice that it was a J.Crew piece I’d lusted after, passed on, and then pounced on through the site. This top? SAME THING. I saw my hair stylist wearing it about six months back, demanded the details, and found out she’d gotten it from the clearance rack ages ago. So, no striped shirt with built-in brooch for me. Or so I thought. But then! During my second poke around the Twice site, there it was. In my size. Just waiting to be snapped up and loved.
Not exactly like winning the lottery, but similar. At least for a clotheshorse such as myself.
Ever found an item used that you had passed on buying new? Kinda thrilling, isn’t it? Would love to hear your stories!
Anyone else feel like just about everything polka-dotted looks at least slightly retro? Even brand-new stuff in relatively contemporary shapes and cuts just makes me think 50s diners and Betty Boop when polka dots come into play. And not in a bad way – not at all! I love me some retro and repro as much as the next gal. Just strikes me as odd since plaids, stripes, and florals are easily as common but don’t feel as closely associated with a past era. Anyhoo, this cotton voile dress is a late summer favorite. Lightweight, comfy, and retro-cute.
My weekend looks are often similar to my weekday looks, but certain summer Saturdays find me craving simple shorts and graphic tees. All of my shorts are Lees, and these new additions are slightly longer than most. Not quite a true Bermuda, but definitely getting close. They are just as comfy and cute as they can be and the perfect partner for my local-love printed tees. The sneaks are a new addition, too, and I just adore them. Love the sunwashed canvas and hate to admit it, but they’re far comfier than my beloved Chuck Taylors.
