Full Circle

thrifty fashion

I was super excited when I stumbled across this full '50s-style skirt back at the Buffalo Exchange Dollar Sale back in April (yes, for a $1!), since I'd been on a hunt for a big, girly circle skirt for a while. This one is perfect--giant pockets, a cute ruffled hem and a bold black-and-white plaid.

To keep things from getting too '50s housewife, I paired the skirt with a low-cut chiffon tank ($4, from The Sharing Place Thrift Store), and a some white wedge sandals, scored for roughly $20 from GoJane. With a pair of vintage-style sunnies c/o Wow Vintage, the whole head to toe look came out to around $25.

Festive Fourth

I pretty much love a theme, so if I decide to go with one, I tend to commit. In prep for the holiday weekend, I decided to be super cheesy and put together a Fourth of July-themed ensemble, inspired by this adorable off-the-shoulder red, white and blue dress gifted to me by blogger bestie Sunita V.

I paired the dress with my blue backpack (last worn here!), a recent birthday gift, and my white mules, c/o Dorothy Perkins, then added a pop of red with some tasseled earrings ($5) from a boutique in Brooklyn. Altogether, pretty. Darn. Festive.

I'll be grilling up a storm and relaxing at home most of the day--excited to just chill and have nothing to do! Hope you're having a great fourth, and I'll catch ya after the break. xoxo!

Double Denim

Denim goes with pretty much anything--including more denim. I went into denim overload last week, kicking it all off with my vintage Levi's cutoffs. I scored these classic cutoffs on Ebay for $29 from The Family Vintage, and they've been on heavy rotation so far this summer.

I topped off the look with a denim button-up tank, which was a total freebie find from a clothing swap hosted by the Ethical Writers Co. last fall, and added a white gifted bag and a pair of white mules c/o Dorothy Perkins. With my $6 street vendor sunnies and a secondhand silver necklace ($4, from a friend's closet clean-out sale), the whole shabang came out to just $39.
