I adore this neutral, flowing blouse with the cut out details around the shoulders and cuffs. extremely out of my 'this is an acceptable price to pay for a shirt' range. but beautiful.
I will keep my eye out at the thrift store for something similar.
Speaking of thrift stores. Peter and I went this weekend and scored huge. We actually had two garbage bags of clothing to come home with. incredible! some of the items were 75% off. I got some great cardigans and shirts and he got some new pants and button up shirts. I love when the thrifting gods are on my side.
I think one of the major reasons I love thrifting is the thrill of the hunt. when I go to the mall I honestly get bored because its too easy. I'm not a complicated person, I like most of the stuff that are in stores. I can go to H&M and pick out 10 outfits that I like.
I feel with thrifting that I get to be more creative with my clothing. I can repurpose items. hem them. cut off the sleeves. wear it with a belt. its more rewarding to put together a thrifted outfit then something I bought off the rack and paid out the nose for.
And another point is once you get used to paying 5$ for a sweater its hard to justify spending $60. My money goes further and my satisfaction level is higher when I find an amazing item. win win.
happy dreary monday (its raining and grey outside in toronto)
