‘Member how I told you about that thrifted shirt I spotted from across the thrift store this weekend? This is it folks. A true gem. A ladies large polyester button up. It’s a lovely sheer, cream color with tiny little targets dotting the entire thing. Tiny little pinky-orange targets. It has square buttons and it’s vintage (i think). I was in puppy love.

After a quick resizing using CottonĀ and Curls’ method, that puppy love turned into a more mature, respectful kind of love. The kind of love that requires a real photographer and a gorgeous mountain sunset. I also added some pleats to the shoulders to bring them up a bit.

This shirt can be dressed up or down. I can’t wait to try it with a high waisted skirt. But it also looks great with jeans and a sweater over the top.

In that same thrifting trip I found a great gold bracelet that I haven’t taken off since I bought it. Thrifted jewelry is the best.

Sorry for the super short post friends, but this week has been a killer at school. It’ll all be over at 9:15 tonight after a presentation that gives me sweaty armpits just thinking about it. At least I’ll be sweating into a polyester, vintage shirt with tiny targets.

  1. I want a tute on the shoulder pleating. I never would have thought of that.

  2. This is so darling!! I want one for Lily Belle but I’m not really reliable with a sewing machine :) It was so good to meet you yesterday and I love your cutie blog!
