Is It Vintage Or Thrifted?

Skirt & necklace, vintage/thrifted. Blouse, Banana Republic. Pumps, Nine West.

You may have noticed that I'm a bit of a color addict, so last season's beige extravaganza has left me thirsty for vivid skirts. The solution? Vintage stores, of course! They carry the most exquisite prints with impossibly small waists (what does this say about the modern girl's diet?). To top it all off, a sweet vintage shop is moving to a less central area, which means everything is now being sold at thrift store prices. Vintage and thrifted - synonymous at last!

I love your use of color, you always look fabulous! I love this skirt! The worst thing about people featuring vintage or thrifted items is that if I like it, I can't run out and buy it for myself!!

this skirt reminds me of charlie and the chocolate factory, in the best possible way of course.

That skirt is about 17 million shades of awesome. And my waist was not made for the vintage silhouette, but that doesn't mean I don't love it!
