Treasure Hunt

(vest: vintage, tank: ag, shorts: f21, hat: h&m, bag: vintage,
boots: h&m, nail polish: essie's butler please) 

Hello Awesome people. Here's an outfit I shot after a day of thrifting on South
Beach. I was lucky enough to find this oversized denim vest in a sea of cowboy
jackets and shiny 80's gowns. It was so thrilling to see how many amazing pieces
can be found in these shops. No lookbooks, no online previews or apps...just
pure anticipation of what treasures you will find underneath a pile of junk.

I can only imagine the story behind each piece or just the sweaty biker dude
that probably wore this before I did.

Have an amazing weekend!!
xx

  1. My favorite part of thrift shopping is figuring out new ways to make used pieces work again. I love taking a piece that someone else didnt see hope in and using my fashion sense to transform it into something great.

  3. Thrifting is one of my favorite things to do. I agree with you, I like digging through all the clothes and never knowing what to expect.
    That's a great way to wear a denim vest, I always look boxy in mine even thought it's more fitted. Oh man, hopefully there's no residual biker stains/smells, haha!
