When you shop in consignment stores and thrift, you really have no idea what you are going to find. I honestly love picking up pieces that I know won’t be in everyone’s closet that I can make uniquely my own. You can even sometimes find eco friendly garments like the plum dress below by ecoSkin. I always look for unique cuts, bright colors, and those ornate elements like in the vintage silk blouse that I found. The high detailed neckline kind of reminds me of something Prince would wear whom I absolutely adore. The tiny buttons along the neckline and shoulder give it an exceptional touch.
Don’t be afraid to wear things backwards like how I layer the teal sweater over the plum dress. It was the racer back line that I needed to hide the v-neck of the dress to create interest in the overall look. Style can truly be endless with a bit of imagination!
