Ah, the day after vacation. Lounging around, taking in the lovely air conditioned spaces of your own country and watching way too many episodes of HGTV's Design Star. Unfortunately, after a good many hours doing so, your shirt may wind up as rumpled as mine did.
-white 3/4 tee, H&M
-white lace tank, F21
-jean pencil skirt, Zara
-yellow perforated leather sneaks, OTBT
-aqua paisley scarf, vintage
I have a penchant for loose tanks and form-fitting skirts, I've noticed. I like the free flowingness of my top half, and how it is totally reigned in and streamlined on the bottom. Here you can see the lace detail of the top properly, as opposed to last week when I tucked it in. I'm a sucker for pretty little details like that.
The vintage scarf is one of my scores from a lot purchased on ebay for $16. It may have been my most successful purchase ever, in fact, since I wear many of the items frequently. I subscribe to a number of "success" rubrics-- low price per wear, extreme markdown, thrift finds-- which may of course be mere justifications, but do make certain items more treasured than others.
I'm interested to know:
What was your most successful purchase? How do you define shopping success?
