Black + White Dress (worn underneath) Vintage Skirt, Black T-Strap Heels: All Thrifted.

I'm combining the very old with the very new in this outfit. Or, well, I suppose if you want to get technical it's actually all very old. But in a 'new to me sense' the dress I'm wearing as a top was one of the first pieces I thrifted. It was my pride and joy at the time, and I didn't think another thrift find would ever top it. I haven't worn it in a few years because I ran out of ways to mix it up, but when I went home a few weeks ago I thrifted this vintage damask skirt. Someone must have really liked the shape and style of it because there was one in every color at the thrift store, but this bright green caught my attention and won my heart.

I feel like when I thrift, I never go for basic pieces but out of the ordinary, somewhat hard to wear ones. It causes a huge surge of clothing in my wardrobe, but yet none of it ever really gets worn. I always feel like I'm thinking " I need this, this, and this certain condition to wear this piece." Well gosh darn it. I'm tired of waiting for 'this, this, and this." I'll wear what I want when I want.

With much love, Lauren.

I love this look! You look so beautiful. That skirt is amazing. Good eye!
I do the same thing too when I go thrift store shopping. Always looking for something a little out there that no one else will have. That's why thrift store shopping is so fun - almost a guarantee no one will have it!

I do the same thing. I end up thrifting unique/strange-ish pieces and they don't get worn nearly enough. I have to make myself look for basics!
But anyway, I love how you wore that dress as a top. The green skirt is so pretty with it.
