RFF: winter vest



My hair's getting long. I'm learning to be creative until I can get it cut. Also, I'm thinking that full vests like this will never be flattering, but they're still fun to wear in the wintertime. Hope you all have a Happy New Year! Thank you for all your comments, love, and support.

Top: Target
Vest: F21, gift
Skirt:Banana Republic, Thrifted, D.I.@SugarHouse $4
Tights:Target
Socks: Husband's
Boots:Old Navy, Thrifted,$5, D.I.@Tooele

P.S. I'm starting something new. Because I receive so many questions about where I thrift, what stores are my favorite, and what thrifted means, I will be posting the thrift store and location whenever I list "thrifted." Hopefully this will benefit those of you from Utah so you can get a feel for which D.I.s I shop at.

HOLY. HOT! Gosh, your hair is straight out of a 50's magazine. It's amazing.
And yes. I got your email. Your sweet, incredibly helpful email. A long time ago actually. But I've been allergic to my inbox this Christmas break. And now, I'm totally regretting it. Anyway, please excuse my bad manners. I'll be back to normal shortly ;)

I can't wait to visit my family in UT to check out the thrift stores there. I score pretty well here on a regular basis but you know, greener grass and all that!

How does your hair always look so perfect?? Mine just will not do the poof look. Completely wish I could stalk your thrift store haunts, but alas, I am in Florida, so I suppose I will just have to stick with what's here. Maybe I'll start with Plato's closet. I'll just have to go prepare my game plan. Cute vest, I think it is very flattering, and warm beats flattering on a cold day. Always.

You're so beautiful! I love your hair. I don't think I can ever pull off short hair. :( Hair that short, at least. I would like to try though one day. Maybe when I'm brave enough!

Bridget said...

Oooooh I love all the different shades of grey and the textures! Its very fun!


Ugh, I have the worst time thrifting. I've just started wanting to check out salvation army, goodwill, all the fun places that I see bloggers finding amazing pieces at. I'm flummoxed each time I go, I get so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of stuff! I'll have to keep track of where you find your things, haha....
