mother of pearl


thrifted blouse. uniqlo +J coat. 3.1 phillip lim necklace. vintage glasses.

This blouse is by far my most treasured thrift find ever! I still can't believe I came across this little beauty in a run-down-kind-of-creepy-thrift store in the middle of nowhere! Florida seriously has to be one of the best states to thrift in, since a decent amount of it's population consists of retirees that no longer care for their apparel that they once wore in the 80's, 70's, etc., and they all range in income levels so sometimes you can find some amazing vintage designer items. Such as a pair of vintage Versus by Gianni Versace pants for only $10! Like me! But anyways, did I mention that I only got this blouse for a mere $1! Could you imagine what the price would be if it were in the mass retail stores? Although, the only downside I have to say about this blouse is that it's polyester! If you guys didn't know, polyester isn't exactly on my nice list. Such an evil fabric, suffocating my body with every movement made. But I still love it! The store employee told me that many people wanted to buy it but it was too small for them. For once the small size is still left. Being skinny thrifter in a retirement community has it's benefits after all. . . :)

$1 is a bargain for sure. It looks great even though it doesn't breathe lol. I like the contrast of the delicate pearl beading with the bold necklace you paired it with.

I love being a size small because I can fit into sizes that most people can't, so I can wait until the last day of a sale, if I want to and still get what I want. I love your style and your haircut!
