It was such a beautiful day today, that I cast off all of my looming academic responsibilities and wore my most summery dress to go thrifting, drink beer and eat mangoes in a friend's backyard. Come on, I would rather sift through junky old clothes than write papers any day! As my tastes become more selective (and my closets more stuffed), I find it harder to find clothing that I actually like at thrift stores. But to make up for it, I absolutely ransacked the accessories section. I bought some cute earrings and about a zillion vintage brooches that I affixed to the collar of a mediocre blazer. (Yep, I copycatted Belle.)
How super sick does this look?
Ever since Elizabeth blogged about her creepy brooch hoarding obsession, I haven't been able to get this DIY out of my head. It was a pretty expensive DIY seeing as all the brooches ranged in price from $2 to $7, but totally worth it.
