Thrifting Finds



Thrift shopping is one of my favorite things to do, there's something about turning a retro garment into a wearable piece that gets my adrenaline going. I went thrifting this past weekend and found my entire outfit at Goodwill {excluding my House of Harlow sunglasses & jewelry}.  While I was shopping I found an 80's style dress with a lace collar, I opted to cut off the collar and safety pinned it to this plain black tank. The perfect fix for my collar necklace obsession, here

The entire outfit only costs me $20!!
