Borrowed Hand-Me-Downs








My friend Samara let me borrow this amazing vintage Moschino skirt that was passed down from her mom. Did her mom have cool taste or what? My mom also had some pretty killer clothing too, but she was a size zero when she was my age! That's like a negative four by today's standards. I can probably fit one of my thighs into her old skirts. Oh well, I'll just borrow Samara's mom's clothing...is that cool, Samara? ;)

Outfit Details:
Vintage knit beret
Postlapsaria liquid metal drape blouse
Thrifted cummerbund
Thrifted tuxedo style blazer
Vintage Moschino green fringe skirt
H&M tights
Alice + Olivia for Payless shoes
Coach Cambridge Zip Top Tote (I know I wear this a lot but I love it!)

  12. Thank you everyone!

    Myownlittleuniverse:

    I loooove cummerbunds! I went through a major cummerbund phase in college, it was ridiculous. I recently rediscovered a stash of them and have to keep reminding myself not to wear them all the time.
