It’s like a sweatshirt and a dress had a baby together. And I am so in love.
This dress is from Raw Earth Wild Sky, a company that makes all of its clothes with unfinished seams so you can customize sleeve and even hem length … WITH SCISSORS. Now that is my kind of alteration. Only downside is styles run quite small – this is the XL and I’d say it’s the equivalent of an 8 or 10. (Got a similar plus size option in the widget below.) Wore this to one of my monthly high-powered lady networking groups and was still comfy after my second round of pastry and fruit. Sweatshirt dress, you are a marvelous hybrid.
(First seen on Instagram, where I declared it my Dean Winchester look.) I bought this graphic tee after seeing the David Bowie Is exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I have seen three museum retrospectives that have left me totally speechless: Keith Haring at the Whitney (which actually made me cry), Alexander McQueen at the Met, and David Bowie at the MCA. I hope they decide to tour it around a bit more – it closed a couple of months ago – because it is comprehensive, educational, impressive, gorgeous, multi-faceted, and fantastically entertaining. Seeing it moved Bowie out of the “amazing” category and into “genius” in my opinion.
Oh so very blown-out, that background, but it certainly makes the outfit pop. I’ve been trying to expand my scarf-tying horizons a bit, and here did my geometric scarf up in the Double Loop. A nice option to take some volume out and keep ends from dangling down.
This tunic really is one of my favorite Twice finds. (Seen again here.) It’s lightweight enough to be worn all year, but was fun to do with skinnies and tall boots, a combo that used to be my go-to but hasn’t been in high rotation this winter.
Can you see that sassy little split at the hem of this tunic? Such a unique detail, yet doesn’t distract from otherwise clean lines. I’ve been having fun layering it beneath jackets, but it’s super cute on its own, too. And it’s another Twice find, so secondhand. Shopping that site gets me to try brands I don’t generally consider for myself. Glad I gave this one a try!
Do you find that you’re more open, brand-wise, when shopping thrift or secondhand?
