Last year I wore an almost identical version of this. I put the belt over the sweater then, wore different shoes, and left off the tights. I even wore the same earrings. I'm not one of those people who refuses to wear the same thing twice. I think if you find something that works, go with it. Remixing is great and wonderful, but sometimes it's okay to play it safe.
Dress- Vintage 70's, thrifted
Cardigan- Vintage 60's, thrifted
Tights- We love colors
Shoes- Swedish Hasbeens (have you seen the spring collection? I died.
Earrings- my favourite in the world which I like to call my Hera earrings. Yes they are named after a Greek goddess
I've been terribly bored with my clothes of late, and my room is a disaster area (no, really), so I can't do any sewing, and truth be told I don't need any more clothing, and blah, blah, blah.... I just haven't even wanted to get dressed in the mornings because it means having to make a decision. Which is pathetic. I think part of it is that I've not been sleeping well, and some other things going on that just have me unexcited about clothing. So Sunday night I went to bed early, and I got up on time yesterday morning (shocking!), determined that I was going to put together something cute and fairly well thought out. So I went with a default outfit. I knew it would look good, it's predictably "me," and gosh darn it, I like it! It's cute, comfy, and easy. And I think I have cured myself of my aversion to this dress. I wore it in the musical I was in last summer and ever since I've not been able to put it on. It brings back memories of Hairspray musical numbers, and and excess of BO! But I think we just made up ;-)
In other news I bought some vintage cowboy boots. I know! I couldn't be more excited about them! I will show you all this week! And I have a quick question for you all! I have been asked by numerous people, on many occasions to do a series on how to thrift or basically how I go about finding clothes at thrift stores. I keep starting to write them, and then get distracted by something else (ooooo! shiny shoes!). So I am thinking of doing a video series. Would anyone be interested in watching me babble on about how I thrift? I promise there will be several short videos and not one really, really, really long video, but is this something anyone would be interested in? I'd appreciate the feedback!
