Fashion and thrift shopping. Those words make me happy. And the word candy. And the word clearance.
Anyways, I realized I haven’t done a fashion lookbook since Valentines Day, so I’m due.
In case you’re wondering, yes it is still spring. I Googled it.
So bring on the pastels, pearls, and lace! From my second-hand closet, to you.
My first outfit is exactly what I wore for Easter Sunday, and one of the few articles in my closet that are pastel. I’ve never really liked pastel.
However, I couldn’t take my eyes off this striped, sweater-shirt, dress. It was $1.95 at the thrift store, and it wanted to come home with me.
I paired it with my grandma’s pearls, and a chunky brown belt with matching heels.
Because the sweater-shirt was too short to be a dress, I layered it over a white floral, detailed pencil skirt.
I love the look of the knitted material over the embroidered flowers. Very spring-like.
Also, who doesn’t love a good pastel over bleached jeans.
I’ve had friends ask me to describe my style. After a few minutes of us staring blankly into space with no answers, they refocus their eyeballs and decide my style is just “Rebekah.”
I love this boho look. I used to wear a ring on every finger, then my piano teacher yelled at me. I still do it every once and I while.
My every day rings I wear on my ring fingers. One is gold and one is silver. I may not be rebellious enough to totally mix gold and silver, but I will wear them at the same time.
My pretty boho top was under $2 and the lose skinny jeans (that I wear almost every single day) were supposed to be $2, but the sweet old lady only charged me $1!
Gotta love thrift stores when there’s a sweet old lady in charge.
My wedge sandals were from Target, and lately I’ve been liking a pale blue polish on my toes. Is that weird? I feel like red and pink are toenail colors. I may be overthinking this.
This is the one outfit, maybe in my whole collection, that I purchased all at the same time.
There were no doubts about it. I saw the outfit put together in my head, and it was something beautiful.
I floated over to the counter on eagles’ wings and purchased a $5 bag, then I began stuffing.
If you didn’t know, some thrift stores have a promotion where you buy the bag, and as much as you can fit into the bag is all yours for $5.
I purposely made these photos fuzzy so that they’d look more dream-like and romantic.
In case you were wondering.
This old slip dress was so pretty. I didn’t care to think too much about hygiene or where it had been or think that some poor soul could have possibly died in their sleep wearing it.
All I could think of was: preeetty dress.
I finished the look with some huge green, vintage earrings, and my wingtip heels.
I honestly love this outfit, but I’d never wear it in public. It’s way too short, and thin. You can see right through it, and if I were to wear it on a windy day, I’d be in trouble.
These are the kind of things fashion bloggers don’t typically tell you, but hey, it is a pretty outfit, and I had to share. Especially for spring, anything flowy and lacey is just perfect for spring. I’m a fan.
I hope you enjoyed this Spring Fashion Lookbook. As always, thank you so much for reading!
If there’s anything you take away from this blog post, I hope it is: Give Rebekah candy. Don’t wear see-through clothes. And beware of dresses and wind. You may quote me.
