Vintage Off the Shoulder Dress

I found this vintage off the shoulder dress at the Salvation Army recently. I tried to challenge myself to modernize it with trendy accessories and I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I kept falling back on older feminine pieces like my straw bag and pink Prada shoes.

Classic Green Moto Jacket

I recently compiled a list of 30 closet staples and of course, a moto jacket made the cut. They are extremely versatile, can be dressed up or down and come in handy when I want to add a more masculine element to a very feminine look. Here, I mixed old with new by pairing my green moto jacket with a vintage pant / skirt and my new vintage wicker bag that I got for $2.

Camel Coat

Effortlessly chic, camel coats never go out of style. And because of that classic pieces like these are thrift store staples. Their built-to-last material give them a long shelf life and so they are constantly given new life with each new secondhand shopper. I almost always spot at least one men’s or women’s vintage camel coat at secondhand stores.

$5 Vintage Cape

I remember the first cape I ever bought. It was on clearance at Express about seven years ago. I was in college, broke and $40 was a serious splurge for me ($40 is still a splurge for me).  It was such a beautiful, well made piece and my sister told me I would never regret it. I still have that cape and still wear it often. I think that day sparked an everlasting love of capes.

Bright Bold Bargain

Guys, I need a life lesson on applying my “I won’t stop until I find it at the thrift store” type of persistence to other important aspects of my life.
