vintage stars & stripes... & stripes

I would be a strong contestant for the title of worst vintage/ thrift shopper ever. In general, vintage clothes are something I can admire from afar on others. I rarely have the patience to sort through the racks at forever 21 and goodwill is 10x worse, often times topped off with a not so pleasant stench. This skirt is the product of one of my few successful vintage shopping excursions...2 years ago. It was purchased from a charity shop for the American Cancer Society. I was iffy about it at the time, but I figured the money was going to charity so even if I never wore it at least it wasn't money down the drain. 2 years later and it's finally getting some wear time.

  1. Haha no resting bitch face today. I was trying so hard after I read your post not to make one again. I think I succeeded too. Same here. I love vintage clothes but I really don't have the patience to go shopping for them. You look stunning!! That skirt looks super cool.

  2. I really like this skirt! It's a cool mix of old fashioned (the length) with modern touches (the bright stars)! Haha yeah I see that smile of yours!

  3. Haha I know, thrifting is so tedious...some days I'll walk in with the intention of finding something fabulous and walk out ten minutes later because I get too frustrated...

    But it yields some awesome treasures sometimes!

    Nice find with this skirt. You styled it perfectly with the crop top and cool lace up shoes.

  5. That skirt is beautiful! I'm pleased you bought it and you got around to wearing it, even if it took a while! :)

    I have pretty poor luck thrifting too, I don't have the patience to hunt for a long time either. Every now and then I'll score something great, but mostly I come home empty handed.

  12. Lol at your last comment :) However loooving this look and I can totally relate about thrifting. I always get inspired when I hear about how much people save or seeing what they made out with, but omg I'm such a disaster. As soon as I step in a thrift store I'm over it. At least you made one good score!

  14. the print on the skirt is pretty unique. love the stark orange stars as a colour accent, not a bad find at all! i haven't been thrift shopping in a while - too many people shop the opshops here so it's really hard to find good pieces in the city!

  15. Opps, I didn't mean to say I actually have a bitchy face. I say it cause the apathetic expression usually gracing my face during these outfit posts is frequently referred to as "resting/ chronic bitch face." Kris Atomic has a cute, little cartoon about it :) http://blog.krisatomic.com/?p=1617

  16. I love the skirt, it's very snazzy! I'm totally the type of person that can't be bothered to sort through clothing at charity shops!

  26. Yaaay for trying out vintage! And seriously though, you styled it to perfection. Love how the cage wedges make it feel modern and young.

  27. Your hair is getting so long Mili! I love it! You are most definitely not the worst thrift shopper! You scored this vintage skirt, didn't you? I love the way you styled it with the lace up booties and crop top! Rita @ www.CoastWithMe.com
