SFW - Of lace and eyelet
Today, which, might I add, is a beautiful day! And ALSO the third day of Secondhand Fashion Week! Huzzah! :)
The outfit I'm wearing is absolutely 100% secondhand...pretty impressive, huh? :) I just love finding amazing things at goodwill or thrift stores, because my brain always starts whirling about what all the different looks I can make with it!
My main piece is a yellow, eyelet jumper. I love it because it is so lightweight! And, best of all, I found it at Goodwill! Mhmm! Underneath the jumper I am wearing a long-sleeve, lace-y blouse. But with the sleeves rolled up, of course. I found this at a Goodwill store too! My pants are some jeans I found at a thrift store called "Plato's Closet" which is probably the most amazing thrift store EVER CREATED! They specialize in used, fashionable clothing...which is JUST what I like! :)
In my hair, I've constructed a rosette out of lace. It was SO easy! I just cut a piece of lace, gathered it tightly at the top, and sewed it down! I love using it as an accessory!
And, you can see from the pictures, I decided to use my ukulele as a prop. And a lovely little thing it is too! I'm just in love with my uke! It's so lightweight and easy to carry around and just pop out of the bag to play. Fun, fun!
