Small Style: The Second Hand Edition

 second hand finds

I am crazy about all the textures of this dress. Sequins and feathers, vintage fabric and buttons. I want to hang it on the wall.

This get-up was an awesome score from The Second Child  this past weekend while out shopping with Sarah, Jen, Kate, & Casey. If you can believe it, I passed up a Misha Lulu outfit there. I KNOW. But one of the secrets of thrifting well is knowing when to say no... you'll love what you said yes to even more. (And no fun to hog all the goodies. What a fab find for the next person that came along!)

these boots were made for ivy

Like, I am so glad someone left these to find me. (True story: Ivy hugged and kissed those boots the first time they met.)

dress: ashor's room
boots: minnetonka

  4. THOSE BOOTS! I need a pair for me! So fab.
    Actually, those minnetonka boots are all the rage where we live in Japan and the hipsters would be beside themselves if my baby girl showed up at playgroup sportting those beauties. LOVE.

  7. I'm not even sure how much I can say that I love great second-hand stuff, whether I bought it from somewhere or someone handed it down. K is in a Tea outfit right now that my neighbor passed down to us. Love it.

    And that dress? Definitely a piece of artwork. She looks like a rock star with that guitar and those boots...
