Vintage & Thrift finds

Oxford Student

Lookin' stern, peepin' in ur windoseSo, one of my favorite thrift finds OF ALL TIME is this blue Ralph Lauren boy's oxford shirt, which I wear with pretty much any and everything. The color is neutral without being boring (it sort of looks like denim), the fit is perfect (apparently I'm built like a 12-year-old boy--but you already knew that, didn't you?), and it responds well to collar-popping (I'm a...

DIY: Elastic Elation

So, I've had this vintage beaded skirt  for years, but never really wore it because the elastic waist was SO stretched out. Even a belt wouldn't keep this sucker up. Enter this video and my newfound do-it-yourself-y-ness, and I decided to try my hand at fixing the waistband. MYSELF. Step 1: Remove the thread from the waistband. I used...
