This was LAST Thursday’s outfit, where is the time going?! With all this holiday hustling and bustling, how is a girl supposed to keep up with presenting her outfits to the world wide webs-ky in a timely manner? I tell ya… ;)
I wanted to share this particular 100% thrifted (tights excluded) outfit though because it features two new casual wardrobe basics that I am currently loving.
The little cream colored fine knit tee ($1.50, Salvos) is just the right amount of stretched and worn to the point of being slightly drapey and sheer. It may not look like much, but a perfect fitting tee is tough to find, and this one must have been well-loved back in the 90’s from whence I’m guessing it came based on it’s cropped length. Speaking of which, I’ve been getting into the high-waisted bottoms with cropped tops silhouette lately…
Enter, my new uber-high-waisted faded red denim Guess skirt… yes, GUESS?, complete with the once coveted upside down triangle on the back pocket… oh, my sixth grade self would be so jealous! It couldn’t be a more perfect fit and it actually came to me in an awesome thrift package sent by my friend Angelina who has seen me in person but was never given my sizing or measurements… she is just that good. Thanks so much Ange, I love it!
I added a couple of layers, 90’s inspired of course, to keep things cozy. The vintage plaid shirt I found over the summer for .75 at the Welfare League Thrift and my cashmere grandpa cardigan found last year is now an old favorite go-to-piece for coziness.
Ok, well now I’m in the mood for a little iconic 90’s goodness…
Here’s Sonic Youth‘s Sugar Kane video to transport us back to 1992, when grunge was first making its way onto the runways and a young Sassy magazine intern named Chloe was first making her way into the limelight… ah, the good old days : )
