lustre lace.


j crew lustre lace mockneck tee {thrifted}   ·   j crew skirt {ebayed}
dexter harriet t-strap heels   ·   croft & barrow necklace

i have long admired this picture of cee wearing a navy lace blouse with a bright red turtleneck underneath and i was reminded of it as i was googling around trying to determine the product name of the j crew blouse i am wearing that i thrifted yesterday just to realize it is the same top.  i had to take inspiration from her and pair it with a turtleneck underneath, too!  i love how pretty and feminine this outfit is with the added faux pearl necklace.

thrifting can be a dangerous hobby.  you're bound to add items to your cart that you would pass on in a store just because of their inexpensive price tag.  i have a hard time putting something back at the goodwill, even if i'm only moderately interested in it.  i struggled with a pink blazer that would have been a mere $2.50 that i finally placed back on a rack just because i'm not certain if the direction my wardrobe is going includes a pepto-bismol pink blazer.  this blouse, on the other hand, was half off of $6.99, which ordinarily would have been a no brainer, but i paused for the slightest of seconds before running to the cash register with it because, ahh, i already have a very similar blouse.  in the end, the $3.50 price tag for a blouse that originally cost $138 won out --  i mean, i couldn't just leave it there, could i?!  as i said, thrifting is a dangerous hobby.  would you have snatched it up as well knowing you have almost an identical blouse already or left it on the rack?

get the look:  similar blouse / similar skirt / similar heels / similar necklace
