A Shot of Scotch

Yesterday I went thrifting and I picked up all kinds of goodies. Photos will be posted within the coming few days as I start to figure out how to incorporate them into my wardrobe. I couldn't believe my fantastic luck! The gems include a Tsumori Chisato blouse, vintage Ports hot pink wool blazer, and vintage Jaeger London blouse. From Value Village! Can you believe it? I've also arranged to work there again for my summer job. Outside of bits and bobs from Zara or Aldo, most of my wardrobe is built on thrifted finds so it makes sense to get 50% off while I'm at it!

Another thing I found, but couldn't keep because I ran out of cash, was a gorgeous plaid wool dress that fit like a glove and could doublt as a coat. After seeing this vintage editorial with Linda Evangelista for US Vogue, I cried out in despair. Why did I let that beautiful dress go? Why? I want to be wearing it right now!

Too bad about the dress. This editorial is amazing! I've always had a weakness for plaid and paired with that hat from the 2nd picture, it's perfect.

Tsumori Chisato blouse at VV!! Ahhhh that is absolutely incredible!! Was just looking at them on an online shop and tearing my hair out at the extremely high prices... gosh lucky lucky you!! XD can't wait to see it.

haha this editorial is so cute. that model tapping her heels in the air just reminds me of Maria from the sound of music.

That editorial looks like it would've been so much fun hahaha... so lively. Makes me feel good.

Or maybe it's just the sunny weather we've been getting lately.

I remember that editorial when that issue first came out! I loved it and it has always stuck in my head as "what happened to Vogue?" I had the picture of her at the piano on my wall for YEARS. Thanks so much for the post!!

They are all beautiful! can't imagine the style without classical Scotland plaid pattern, like dress, scarf.
