Vintage Finds: Add some textiles to your style!
Yesterday after a canceled shoot, I finally had some free time to check out the Salvation Army in Queens. It has been a while since I have been shopping and I was starting to have vintage-withdrawals. I decided to treat myself and hit the jackpot as soon as I stepped foot in the door as every Wednesday is 50% off of everything! I totally forgot! So if you have a Salvation Army near you, always go on a Wednesday. Today I was looking for tops and things with great patterns because I hardly own tops and I have a certain look I want to conquer for Fall and Winter. I know, you think I am lying when I say I don’t have tops…but I am not. I own a lot of everything except for tops because I’m particular about how I like them to fit and look. Well I came and I conquered, I found everything I needed and more! Check it out by clicking the tab below.
I found this really cool top and trousers at the Salvy. I bought this top because it pretty much goes with everything and these trousers because I needed plain black ones for Fall.
How BEAUTIFUL is this teal kimono? Teal is my favorite color and it happens to be the color that looks best on me. I can’t wait to wear this with some crazy heels!
This leopard top is going to look good with a pair of khaki shorts and a cool hat. I am leaning towards a 1950s safari queen type of look.
I have been looking for tribal pin-upy stuff for a while now and BINGO! I found this skirt and nearly died when I saw it, it had to be MINE!
This top is amazing, see that drape on the neck line? you can take the button off and let that part hang like a scarf. This top is versatile, exactly what I need for my closet.
This top is my favorite. The feather detail, the scarf around the neckline, and the comfortable fabric make one really amazing top. I cant WAIT to wear this one.
After seeing the Kiki De Montparnasse “boyfriend shirt”, I decided I’d like to save myself $350 dollars. I found this long button down top with the same neckline as the boyfriend top and ran over to the Ties section and found a really cool clip-on tie! The boyfriend shirt actually has a bow tie, but I can have that arranged 😉 (::cough:: look below).
I put a vest on with it and made my own damn bow tie so you can get the gist of it.
Last but not least, I hadddd to get a black top. I am always going crazy trying to find one in my closet and now I have one that works! I also purchased these high-waisted shorts because of the pattern. As I said, I’m going to be playing a lot with colors and patterns for Fall and Winter this year. I’m getting my shopping done early ;).
Visit your local Salvation Army on Wednesdays people!
Hope you enjoyed my finds!
