Black & Leopard & Red All Over

Top: Thrifted / Skirt: c/o Joe Fresh / Shoes: ALDO / Tights: H&M / Bag: Unknown / Sunnies: ASOS

Sometimes I go "thrifting" - or, thrift shopping, if you don't want to verb-it. And sometimes when I go thrift shopping, it's an absolute bust. I'll find zippo. Sometimes it lands in the middle, where I'll find say, a great basic pencil skirt for work for a fraction of the price of a new one. That's always nice. 

But then there are the other times. The times that I find something just wonderful. Something on trend, but unique. Something fun & different. Something that I know I can style minimally, but feel stylish in. I love the feeling of knowing that it's mine & mine alone, and that I won't see it everywhere I look in my small town - no duplicates when vintage shopping!

This exact thing happened with this blouse. Suede & adorned with the best collar/cuff detailing of fuzzy animal print, I paired it with a current basic black skirt from Joe, and a pop of red via my purse. It's also really long (but not really long enough to be a shirt dress), so next it may be paired with tights & sequin shorts for a night out.. if I can stay up past midnight. Zzz.

Your new thrift find is absolutely amazing! I have a hard time finding the perfect leopard print. One that doesn't look to off, if you know what I mean. But this blouse Kristin, this blouse has it! And I love it! xo
