{outfit post} a little hippie dippie...


(7 For All Mankind might-as-well-be-vintage wide-leg jeans; Vince sleeveless top; Urban Outfitters sandals; thrifted Scarf; Betsey Johnson pendant; Nordstrom Rack long faux pearls; Anthropologie Castries sunglasses; thrifted Scarf; MK boyfriend watch; F21 ring; thrifted belt; Urban Outfitters blazer; thrifted Ralph Lauren bag.)


This outfit has a pretty '70's vibe because of the loose fit and light wash of the jeans (on a sort of long-term loan from Karina). I didn't want to look like a total hippie though, so I paired them with this amazing silk top by Vince (hand-me-sideways from Mom) and a mix of pearls and gold. The belt, bag and scarf were all found at a rummage sale a couple weeks ago. I was out running errands at Target and saw a sign for a rummage sale just a few blocks away. Something inside me said, "Ehh, why not?" and I pulled a u-turn and followed the signs to the Latvian Community Center. Oh, yes.
I'm talking Latvian music, Latvian snacks, people speaking in Latvian, Latvian knick-knacks - it was all there. I sifted through a lot of strange things, and $11 later, I came out with some real gems. The bag is vintage Polo Ralph Lauren and made of goreously loved leather ($5!). I also got another belt ($1.50 each) and an amazing short, chunky gold chain necklace ($2). It was a very random mid-week adventure that turned into a really fruitful vintage moment. The girls at Anthro are already coveting my bag... but Zoe is keeping a close eye on it!

*I didn't smile very much in these pics & kept my SG's on, which is sort of lame. Don't worry, I don't take myself, or my outfits, that seriously. I'll work on that for next time!
