I wore this to: keep cool
This outfit smacks a bit of 80's-mom-on-vacation (sorry moms), and I'm completely OK with that. I felt like I was on vacation! It was 90 degrees! But I was at work, definitely not on vacation.
Something I really appreciate about thrift shopping is how democratic it is (I think democratic is the right word, if it's not, tell me), there's no brand loyalty: if you like an item, and it's cheap enough, you buy it. Regardless- for the most part- of what's on the tag. While I do avoid brands like Target, F21, and H&M in thrift stores (for quality purposes), I've amassed a surprising collection of 'vintage' Fredrick's of Hollywood, Victoria's Secret, and Liz Claiborne. This little number is from VS, and while I would probably never think to order it from the catalog new, for three bucks I was willing to take a chance. And I'm happy I did!
