feelin’ blue

hello, friends!

today i had the pleasure of thrifting at the st vincent de paul thrift store in los angeles.  let me tell you…this place is HUGE.  like, overwhelmingly huge.  i started in the dresses section, but didn’t find much.  i then headed to the blazer/suit jacket section where i found an old school calvin klein blazer – it’s so soft…can’t wait to wear it with leggings and boots!  next, i headed to the skirts and jeans area…i found a plaid/wool skirt, a pair of jordache jeans (love them!) and a pair of pants that remind me of something diane keaton would’ve worn in annie hall.  i even perused the men’s section, where i found some dress shirts, a couple of dope men’s jackets (yes, i’ll eventually have men’s clothing in my etsy shop) and a christian dior cashmere scarf for THREE DOLLARS AND 99 CENTS!!  what luck…william scoped that gem.  i also found a belt and a few shirts here and there, but my fave find was a dark teal, velour, 70’s or 80’s style boatneck sweater.  all in all, it was a good thrifting day!

on the way home, it dawned on me that i’ve been gravitating toward rich greens and blues this winter.  especially the “electric” or cobalt blue.  i think it’s a great color to add to your wardrobe, but here are a few things to keep in mind if you do.

and now for some show and tell…enjoy!
