What to Wear: 100% thrifted


what to wear

Today’s What to Wear prompt of 100% thrifted was a pretty easy one for me, as I often find my outfits are made up of at least half thrifted or vintage pieces. After I took these photos, I realized that my entire outfit (minus the socks…) is 2nd hand, but not necessarily thrifted- hope that wasn’t cheating!

Brian recently came home with this cape for me that he found at an estate sale. Seeing that we’ve had a crazy warm winter, I haven’t had much time to wear it, except for the occasional evening. But I’m in love. I generally have a weakness for vintage crocheted/knitted items, and the brighter the better! Since I spent so many years knitting myself, I definitely have an appreciation for how long something takes, because even most of the smaller projects lose my attention these days.

    I am IN LOVE with that cape. It’s amazing! If you ever get sick of it, I’d gladly take it off your hands. ;) Also, I think 2nd hand totally counts as thrifted, so I say your 100% thrifted claim holds true!
