a piece of advice.

wiley wears:

dress: gap
top: thrifted
belt: walmart
earrings: vintage
slingbacks: nine west
     my friends, i have a great piece of thrifting advice.  i often get questions on how i shop at the thrift stores and what pieces i look for.  well, for first-timers, i say focus on the blouses.  these short sleeved beauties are so easy to find, usually cost only a couple of dollars, and thanks to those glorious decades of the 80s and 90s, there are crazy bright colors galore.  i have a collection of these suckers that takes up a quarter of my closet, but they really are a truly versatile piece.  for work, i often pair them with a pencil skirt or pair of fitted trousers.  they also make a great alternative to a tshirt for weekend errands and lazy days.
     today i layered my blouse over a button up polka dotted dress.  i love the combination of bright pink and navy and i thought black accessories brought the whole look together.
