Cardigan - BDG, scarf - H&M, dress - Volcom, belt - vintage YSL, jewelry - thrift/flea market, flats - Kimchi Blue
So, I frequently mention on here that I'm a high school student... which entails sitting in a dirty cafeteria for lunch, and waking up early (among other things). Normally the latter frustrates me to no end, but lo and behold, it's had its benefits. Am I trying to hint at something?
Why yes, yes I am. Getting up early (albeit a half-hour later than my alarm was set for... which actually turned out for the better) granted me entrance to the Outnet's $1 sale. Really. And I had a Visa gift card right in sight. Really. I tried to see if some Stella McCartney was in the running, particularly shoes, but no luck. After browsing, I magically came upon the perfect white cotton skirt I've been looking for since last year. Moschino, my size, $5.95 with shipping.
So, I request that you don't hate me... but I had to share this with people who know what Moschino is. I can only imagine sharing it with my friends would get confused looks and comments about maraschino cherries. I swear, my luck is fabulous, all the time.
This belt is vintage YSL, courtesy of my mom. Her sister worked at the YSL boutique when there was one in Philadelphia, so there were discounts available. I wish I had the guts to wear the dress it came with, but I'm not very polka-dotty. And this scarf reminds me of the fabulous prints from Miu Miu S/S 2010, which reminds me, I want to do a DIY inspired by that.
I must admit, I feel like such a bratty teenager talking about designers. But clothes are my hobby, while other people watch sports and shell out money for equipment. And really, I don't think I ever wear outfits over $100 (maybe excluding shoes).
Have a great weekend! xox Catherine
