Trend Spotting | Mixed PrintsFriday, August 20, 2010
I haven't seen daylight in over 4 days. I'm really not trying to jump on the whole vampire love bandwagon thing (although Robert Edward is pretty swoon worthy in my eyes), but I blame the weather for this hibernation and my incessant nocturnal need to only get busy after dark ;D. So in a happy-go-lucky effort to see what's actually going on in the world as I know it, I eagerly mapped out a mini-excursion to AnaCrime for a round of thrifting and vintage adventure shopping.
One shop turned to two, two turned to three and before I knew it, I spent an entire workday (8+ hours) scavenging over 4 different secondhand stops, Ross, TJ Maxx, and the holy mecca of all guilt-free shopping- Forever 21.
Needless to say, I'm completely pooped by the sensory overload, but I must admit I haven't been this inspired by the Salvation Army since I scored my vintage Chinese robe seen here over 15 years ago.
Which got me thinking, if I were to re-imagine my entire closet as if it were a high-end consignment boutique, I'm sure I could dig up some buried treasure, mix and match to make it work for any occasion!
See, inspiration can be found everywhere guys. First step to finding yours- get out of the house!
