100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (8.25.08)

I love Lawrence., originally uploaded by cmt2779.

This is why I need to go thrifting in Kansas. Adorable vintage dresses and even adorable-er old lady comfort shoes, which I would like to bring to your attention because THESE are some of the cutest I’ve seen! I love the simplicity of this outfit and the way the black and white shoes look in contrast to the yellows in the dress, it’s striking and unexpected, and it really works. Just a lovely photo overall!

I’d also like to state for the record, that cmt2779 is no novice when it comes to comfort shoes of the granny variety. In fact, according to my research (I am a scientist after all ;), I do believe that this gal was the first wardrobe remixer ever to rock the SAS! Back when I thrifted mine, which were, much to my amusement, later featured on Painfully Hip, I did a search in wardrobe_remix for SAS shoes to see how or if others had worn them. That’s when I came across this from summer of 07’. Thanks cmt2779, for so stylishly and gracefully paving the way for the rest of us!

SAS pioneer, we salute you! Those colours do look great together. Some people (ie, you two ladies) have the knack of making the SAS look cool, on me they just look stumpy and sensible. What's the secret?

skye - i agree with the stumpy factor - i think it's cause i have short legs to go with my short body. if they made platform SAS maybe i'd be able to rock them and look as great as these ladies do!

I don't know if you like to get involved in these tagging shenanigans, but I've tagged you anyway, just because I like you!
