vintage pastel hawaiian button down: swapped with my neighbor
vintage acid wash skirt: traded/thrifted at Buffalo Exchange (Williamsburg)
faux leather bomber jacket: Target, $20
vintage booties: thrifted in Austin, TX, $18
cat-eye shades: thrifted/traded at Crossroads Trading Co (Williamsburg)
black cardigan: American Apparel, $35
opaque black HUE tights, $6
Gratuitous picture of a broke person, first-time-in-April edition. Thrift stores are buying for spring! Make it a part of your spring cleaning!
Go through your closet and start packing away your winter clothes. Pull out your spring and summer stuff. If you didn’t wear it last year, and you’re not too excited to see it resurface, SELL IT TO A THRIFT STORE. You’re not going to wear it. I know you’re not. You know you’re not. Just make sure it’s clean, fold it up, and pack it neatly into a bag (no hangers!). Do this with shoes and bags, too.
Bring your modern stuff to Crossroads, bring your vintage to Beacon’s closet and Buffalo Exchange. The more 60’s and 70’s looks, the better. No one seems to be too keen on buying the 80’s right now.
Though I still ended up with this sweet acid washed number from last year…
GOOD LUCK!

  • Kimchi & Blue dress: Urban Outfitters, $69
  • 'laundry' by Shelli Segal coat: thrifted in Bushwick, $10
  • BC ‘Gamma Ray’ clogs: on sale at MiniMarket in Williamsburg, $50
  • grey bowler hat: on sale at LF in Cobble Hill, $8
  • opaque HUE tights: gift, but probably $8
  • OCC Lip Tar: free from my roommate, via a fashion week goodie bag

Yes, it’s that time of week again. Where I share with you my outfit and tell you how much everything cost. At a glance, you may think this look isn’t too ‘broke’ - I mean, $69 is pretty steep for someone with almost no money in their bank account… right?

Sometimes, you gotta shop quality. Again, you might now be thinking “Urban Outfitters, really?” We place so much focus on the little black dress that I think the little black DAY dress can fall by the wayside. I’ve worn this thing approximately 1 billion times in the last year, give or take, so the cost per wear is low. It’s science.

Same goes for the shoes. I’ve worn them to death over the last year and a half I’ve owned them. I recommend catching the sales at LF and MiniMarket because they have some serious deals for those who normally are of the Salvation Army contingent.
