100th post! And I get over camera shyness.

Well well well. Finally I hit 100 posts! Finally I take some pictures for an actual outfit post which hasn't happened in TWO MONTHS. I blame lack of inspiration and lack of cash. Not having an income though is a piss poor excuse for lacking style, so maybe I'll go ahead and retract that one. Summer is a tricky time for putting together ensembles. Most days I find myself laying around in my underwear or bathing suit, drinking Pinot Grigio and feeling my brain melt as I do not function properly in heat. The beach is the only place to be and you don't really need to be wearing much for that.

Though the other day my fellow employment-challenged friend and I decided to hop on the train to dirty Jerz and go thrifting. We also visited the giant Target in Jersey City which is a bit of a novelty to us city-dwellers. I stocked up on cute little socks for fall and some canvas sneaks to bum around in for the remainder of the summer. And here is what I acquired at the thrift store...


I saw the print on this dress and immediately fell in love with it. It's handmade, either from the 60's or 70's, and just needed 8 inches hacked off the hem to make it perfect. I was also happy to find the perfect black leather skinny belt and fake 2.55 bag for el cheapo. The Worishofer sandals were a lucky find at Beacon's Closet a couple weeks back, which were essentially free with trade-in credit.

Two more things...

I've finally set up my Etsy shop and will be adding more vintage clothing to it tonight. Please check it out (and favorite it!).

And the winner of the Mink Pink Giveaway selected with Random.org's random number generator is...#5, Heather! I'll contact you shortly with info, Heather. Congrats!

Great vintage finds! :) I too find summer to be a difficult time to feel particularly inspired in regards to fashion. I just love fall and winter layers SO much!

I love your belt!! I've been finding such great belts at thrift stores lately. I have to practically refrain myself from buying $1!! You really can't beat that. I love the print of that dress. The pink flowers are too adorable! And I am VERY jealous of your bag....I wont' be able to afford real Chanel for years so I'm hoping one will pop up at the thrift store some time soon....
