And a Keiko Post

...if it wasn't 12:48 AM, that would be two posts in one day. Close enough!

Remember when I said I had a rule about selling/donating a clothing item whenever I buy something new? Well, I haven't adhered to it. I did take several bags of clothing to Beacon's Closet and got a huge amount of credit, but it still seems as though I'm bringing in more than I'm taking out. I think I'll have to clean out the wardrobe and sell some of my things. It is getting out of hand! I don't shop at regular clothing stores, ever...I haven't even been to any since the holidays. But with my credit at Beacon's Closet and my weekly thrifting ritual, forget it. I'm running out of places to store things.


My little bow hat isn't as epic as Aretha's, but it will have to do.




Outfit Details:
vintage velvet bow hat - beacon's closet (free with credit)
vintage corduroy jacket - thrifted
old navy dress with pockets - from my sister
mustard tights - h&m
vintage heels - beacon's closet (also free with credit)

Back to work!

  1. I ♥ your top. Honestly, if only I could find good tops like that locally.

    I should say, I got inspired by you. I dropped by our local thrift store and got me a very classic dress...now all I need to do is learn how to alter it. :)

  13. That's always my problem too, we live in a small space so there really is no room for anything new. Whenever I buy, I have to donate just as much away.

  17. those tights seems to be highly opaque...are you wearing three pairs as well???

    ReplyDelete
  18. Nope, just one pair. I think they're 80 denier, which is why they're so opaque.
