Week 2 Salvation Army Newport, RI

Blue Jean Baby

Item: Blue Jean Mini Dress
Price: $5.99
Designer: Jeewan Designs
Description: Blue jean mini dress, thin straps, decorative thread and sequin work on the front Thoughts: To be honest, when I saw this on the rack, at first glance it looked like an altered pillowcase for an unhappy backwoods hippy but I thought I would give it a try. What do you think? I wore it out in Newport and got so many compliments. People kept asking me where I got it and when I said I found it while rummaging through salvation army, people were shocked. Everyone wanted to know if I had washed it yet. haha. Not a chance.

My Essentials Used: Aviator Sunglasses, Thin Belt used to accentuate waist, neutral sandals, saddle bag (also found during one of my adventures dumpster diving)

Item: Sweater Tank Top
Price: $1.99
Designer: Unknown Description: Spaghetti strap, wool, fuchsia colored, small torso
Thoughts: When I saw this in the "blouse" section I fell in love. Because it is a pretty small tank top I knew it wouldn't be the best thing to wear when frolicking about town but for a daytime, over your bathing suit top it is great. For going out, I think that the best way to do it, is to pair it with a long sweater or oxford shirt. The color of the wool is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect example of the type of gems one can find in the thrift store. Though this shirt may not be found anywhere else, there are many other ones around, you just have to search. If you do, you are sure to find some fabulous camisoles you just have to be creative with what you pair it with and a little bit shameless when going out. Sometimes its a hit, other times a miss but at least you will always be interesting!
My Essentials Used: In image 1; skinny jeans(I like white with the fuchsia but black or jean could absolutely work with this outfit too), oxford shirt (in this picture I went for a jean oxford but a white, black, blue, striped, etc oxford would work beautifully as well). In image 2; because there are no patterns in the shirt I thought that a funky leopard ensemble would be perfect. In the photo, I am wearing my favorite leopard wedges, white jeans (this outfit would also work wonderfully with black skinnies), a long black sweater, a leopard clutch (Marshall's for 9 bucks! Not bad). For image 3; classic cutoffs ( just take old jeans you don't wear, cut them a little longer than normal and throw them in the washer and dryer a few times. Never buy cutoffs! total wanker move.
