Style File 01.25.11

This is what I brought to wear to the swap last Thursday. I didn’t end up wearing it because I was much to lazy to change out of jeans, military boots, a stripped tee and J.Crew Cardigan. I do very much love this outfit though. I got to go out by myself the other weekend and hit up a few thrift stores. It was like heaven. That is the one thing I think I miss the most before Rowan arrived. The time to just wonder around thrift stores looking at everything in the rack. It takes time to find treasures. I do very much appreciate it now when I do get a chance to do that.

I love finding someone else’s old clothes and taking them home to make my own.
