Yeah, Vera Wang does weirdly cool things with pleats. I took a chance with these and I was met with compliments so I guess they work!
The shoes were a free pair in the Salvation Army's BOGO sale on shoes. I chose these by default because all others that fit me were either satin or stiletto heeled... neither of which are my style. BUT when I did take them home, I immediately thought of Coury from Fancy Treehouse! She is so awesome at rocking the awesome vintage flats and pastel-y color palette. Even my mum (who was my awesome photog for today!) suggested the minty green to go with the shoes. Treehouse-inspiration ensued. Henceforth, my tribute to Coury:
I scored some majorly awesome stuff at the Salvation Army $0.99 sale! All clothes were .99 and shoes were $4 a pair and buy one get one free! Holy moly! Walked outta there spending only $16 with a bigass bag! I wish Coury could actually help me style one of the pieces I bought... I'll have to browse her site for inspiration for my trip to San Fran. on Monday.
I am thinking of adding a page to my blog to sell some pieces I have accumulate... sort of a mini shop. I have a bunch of thrifted and vintage pieces I am willing to part with... so stay tuned for that!
What I wore:
Minty top, bought in Germany. Simply Vera Wang shorts from Kohls. Vintage bag and shoes. Accessories - miscellaneous (F21, Nordstroms, COACH, H&M)
