One Thrift Piece...

Happy Monday! It has been a very long holiday weekend which I hoped you all enjoyed. I spent it doing laundry and the rest is all blur (haha). 
These past couple of weeks I have been living in thrift stores. I truly did not know how many really good pieces you can get out of these places for the cost of nothing! Like this skirt I purchased for $8 in my neighborhood, it is 100% silk, high-waist, and the paisley floral print is killer gorgeous. I paired it with this American Apparel ribbed crop top and my favorite Zara leather heel sandals. I am definitely going to challenge myself with just buying second hand clothing more often because I don't really have a steady occupation, so I can not afford to buy really expensive clothing all the time, only versatile pieces.

  1. Yes! I love this look. I love thrifting as well and am also challenging myself to not really buy any new clothes for the rest of the year (with a few exceptions). Thrift stores are addicting because you never know what you'll find but you always know it will be a (relatively) good price. Love the way you've styled this skirt in a simple way. Definitely inspired :)

  2. So pretty! Thrifted pieces are honestly the best and usually are good quality as well. Do you have a lookbook?

  22. thrift stores (well we call em charity shops in London) are the best.

    adore the way the way you paired it w/a classic stripe tee and strappy heels.
