Ace of Bass




No matter how many times my bangles catch on this sweater, it’s definitely a thrift store score. I LOVE ME SOME IT!

I didn’t know Bass made clothing too, I’d only heard about their saddle shoes (their gorgeous, gorgeous saddle shoes that have horrible, horrible soles that crack almost immediately upon wearing). Every Goodwill I’ve gone to has had a good amount of Bass shirts, though. It’s funny how that works. Certain brands that I’ve never heard of before, like Alfred Dunner, are labels I know I can count on seeing no matter the thrift store. And man, people really love to donate Relic bags!

Lupita Sweater




SAM_1519JCrew cardigan (Value Village -$?), Shirt (Teen Challenge Thrift – $2), Thakoon for Target skirt (Goodwill – $7), Miz Mooz heels (VV – $15)

So I call this my Lupita sweater because it reminds me of  the sweater that Lupita Nyong’o wore to the Toronto Film Festival.

lupita-nyongo-12-years-a-slave-toronto-international-film-festival-2013-portrait-2Seeeeeeee? Okay, so mine has buttons and is a deeper chartreuse, but I’m pretty sure that Lupita and I should be besties.

This sweater is one of those items that you find at a thrift store and think, “Who the HELL would give that away?” It’s just too perfect. It’s well made, has no blemishes and makes every outfit you pair it with DELIGHTFUL.  What gives, Person Who Donated Lupita Sweater? In any case, OMGTHX.

Made in France

As soon as I touched the fabric of this shirt on the rack at Goodwill I knew I had to snatch it up. Even the cashier paused when she grabbed it from my small pile and said, “Wow, that’s thick!” And I said, “I know, right?!” The name on the tag was incredibly faded but I managed to make out the name of the brand: Orcival. Also this: Made in France. 100% cotton.

I wore it for like, 3 days straight? YEP.

Coming up roses

SAM_1471Thrifted Tulip shirt, thrifted Talula leggings, Chucks




I’ve never worn leggings as pants before, and I don’t think it’s a style that I really want to commit to, but I made an exception here because I friggin love these grey floral leggings so much and the shirt is just long enough that my unmentionables are covered.
