Ultimate Thift Find






Top - Vintage
Leather Skirt - Suzy Shier
Boots - Gojane.com (last seen here)
Bag - Vintage

This crochet top is the reason I love to shop vintage. I get so excited when I find things that look like they were homemade years ago.  I actually shy away from things that are made by a brand that I recognize because I can get that stuff anywhere.  I shop vintage to find the things that aren’t being made anymore!

I feel like this top could have been made by someone’s grandma in the 70’s and was loved for many years before being tossed out.   There are no tags in it and even has a few mishaps in the crochet itself.  It has so much character!

What’s your favourite thrift find??

On another note, the boyfriend and I are having a very exciting Friday night!  Haha, sarcasm is hard to pick up through a blog....anyways - we did a big grocery shop (I actually do love to grocery shop), made delicious tofu fajitas for dinner and are heading out shortly to see Safe House!  He picked it.  But I am pretty sure he is going to watch the new episode of Say Yes to the Dress with me tomorrow so, we are fair and square.

XO, Andrea
