ruffled blouse

December 14, 2016

The thrift fairies have been kind and I’ve scooped up a couple pretty, vintage blouses (from different places), and both happen to have a ruffle collar. This one is a nice linen, and the other is a soft, cotton gauze one. When I wear them, Ben jokes that I’m from colonial times, and I take that as a compliment.

Thrifting is so therapeutic for me, and I love that you never know what you’ll find. Also, I really love finding old discarded things to give them new life. I’ve had a couple hectic days these past few weeks, and I’ll take off when Ben comes home to go thrifting. The time alone helps clear my head and allows me to to press reset on all my emotions. And if I found something good, it definitely helps lift the mood even more. Anyone else feel similarly about thrifting? I’ll pick a thrift store over the mall any day.

what i’m wearing: blouse & vintage levi’s (similar jeans here), thrifted. mars boots, rachel comey. birkin basket (large), space rocket store. earrings, mango.

    Pulling through those hangers is meditation for me, too.

    Beautiful finds! I love thrifting too. I started to do it more frequently this year and it’s been good on every plan. More quality clothes in my closet, more money in my wallet and no more visits to the horribly loud and bright fast fashion shops. Here in Switzerland, thrifting means buying from charity shops and I love that my money is going to a good deed while I’m enjoying myself treasure-hunting/shopping, it’s a win-win!

      I feel the same way you do! The malls give me anxiety these days. I hate when I have to go to one. And if you know what to look for, quality is really better with vintage clothes.

    Yes!! I missed the days when I could run off to go thrifting after a long day with the kiddos. Especially great when I find something amazing on those trips to take home.
