Paisley Park

Now that it’s RealFall again, I took the opportunity to pull out my favorite boots (Century 21 score!) and vintage Monchichi fur vest.

Vintage vest and bag; thrifted dress; Rupert Sanderson boots

I’ve been waiting to wear this dress ever since I picked it up during that unexpectedly fruitful thrifting adventure. I’m pretty sure I’ve been this way since elementary school, when I couldn’t wait to wear my new stonewashed jeans and fresh L.A. Gears purchased during back-to-school shopping trips. Some things never change!

    I am totally craving some paisley! Now I am tempted to go thrifting this weekend and find some of my own.

    Also love how you’re rocking the faux fur and the side bun.

    Um–can I just say that I love this, and will gladly admit that I own all time “ingredients” to achieve this look–and I’m going to do so and call it my T look.

      Girl. Back then you couldn’t tell me I wasn’t the hottest thing this side of Kids Incorporated. Fergie who?

    I like this look, so 70’s.

      I always seem to wind up back in step with ’70s style!

      It is pretty darn comfy–the fur is (unsurprisingly) cozy!

    I LOVE it!! We have the same dress! Was kind of excited because Buffalo Exchange had it featured in their first mag!:) Love how you styled it!

      Really? That’s so funny! I’m always surprised when I find multiples of thrifted items, though really, clothes were mass-produced then, too!
