Since the beginning of the fall I've been very into super muted, earth toned 70's looks. I find that's what my general style aesthetic is molding into as of late with a mix of late 90's mod classics (plaids, mock necks, black ankle boots yeah!). I've condensed most of my wardrobe honestly down to a shockingly small skeleton of what it used to be, and I find I'm more content with it than ever. Instead of having a bunch of pieces I wear every now and then, I have a ton of much loved & used favorites that comfortably await me. I'm working on making my whole wardrobe completely thrifted (shoes + accessories included) and am doing pretty well! This outfit is entirely thrifted & I just brought in a huge haul of pieces from my local VOA to continually style head to toe second hand looks. They feel just so right to me, vintage clothes. I love that they've been loved and given a life previous to mine and that I get to continually make them into something new.

I'm kinda bummed to think about not thrifting as much when I move to NYC because I've found they just don't have good thrift stores there. Everything is very picked over and much, much too over priced. Oh well. I suppose it will make coming home & relishing in the aisles of striped, floral, polka dot, solid, and patterned garments feel all the more comforting and exciting to sift through again. x

With much love, Lauren.

I love the outfit! And I'm sorta trying to get my closet to be all thrifted too, or at least any new additions I want to be thrifted. Shame to here about NY not having good thrift stores. Maybe you just have to find the right ones?

Peace & Love // Celestralite

Ah you're so lucky to have such amazing thrift stores where you live, I'd love to have more second hand clothing etc in my wardrobe but the stores around here are pretty rubbish.

Gorgeous! I love thrift stores. You can find something truly unique and know that it didn't cost the earth to look stunning.

Try Housing Works on 77th between 2nd and 3rd. It's a block from where my best friend lives, and I've scored some adorable stuff there.
