Utilitarian touch

3/25/13





thrifted jacket, Free People dress, Theyskens' Theory boots, Karen Walker sunglasses, Proenza Schouler PS11, Vanessa Mooney necklace, ASOS earcuff

These were taken a while back--and the utilitarian blazer found at a local thrift store even further back--but I still love the jacket almost as much as I do designer pieces. Tailored and belted just right to add enough structure to a grungy, loosely flowing dress. I can also see this over a feminine dress with killer boots or furiously layered for next fall. It has a tinge of Rag & Bone, no? Haha, sometimes, thrifting is that much better... especially at 1/100th the price.

thrifting always feels so precious in a different way than an acquired designer piece does.

I love the boyish mix with the edgy-fem skirt. There's something about juxtaposition that just looks so good.

Well...MUCH THANK YOU FOR NOT ANWERING! Such a rude blogger. Even the most famous bloggers answer questions on their blog. Can I ask why do you even have blog? To promote yourself? Or maybe to inspire others?

You don't need to publish this , but the main point is YOU to SEE it. And maybe think about your blogging.

No one has anything from it, we cannot learn from you, and thats stupid.

Keep up the bad work, you got one follower less.

Anonymous #2: please refer to my comment above to Anonymous #1 and N. about what lens I use.

Otherwise, thanks for your time and constructive criticism.
