OK, so even though I am currently living by the “thrift first” rule in buying, at the beginning of Fall I did buy a couple of new things to freshen my wardrobe. While I would love to find used tops for all my needs, I am very picky about my tops due to my size/shape–very picky. Which makes it difficult to find exactly what I want/need when shopping in consignment or thrift stores. Yet, I know there are certain stores online that regularly carry the types of tops I like (JJill, Soft Surroundings, Talbots–to name a few). I DO NOT like paying full price, even for new, so I usually buy when there is a sale or with a coupon. However, I think I paid full price for this one because as soon as I saw it, I fell in love.
I have paired it with thrifted earrings and calf hair leopard shoes, vintage Patricia Smith bag and JJill Wearever vest and skirt. Notice the lace, ruffled detail on the cuffs:
The earrings are clip-ons. And by the end of the evening, they felt like it:
I really love this top and can wear it with so many things. I am trying to be very good and NOT buy it in black too.
Enjoy your Monday and be chic!
