Black and White






shirt: Goodwill shorts: Versace, Goodwill

Yesterday I asked my super sweet boyfriend to accompany me vintage shopping in Long Beach. After arriving way too early we took a romantic drive around long beach (I hope you understand the sarcasm in the previous statement), we arrived at vintage row and I was completely disappointed. Sure I bought a couple of things, but these same things I could have found at Goodwill for a quarter of the price. So on the way home we stopped by my favorite Goodwill and I stumbled across this gem of a shirt. I was thinking it would be too big, but I just adored the details so much I bought it anyways, for $5 I often buy things I know won't fit and make them work somehow. But to my surprise it fit perfectly and was the perfect option for a lazy day like today.

Happy Birthday Krista, get your ass over here so we can go shopping already!

OMG!!! Goodwill shirt and shorts?! Versace shorts!!! Must... go... to... Goodwill... soon!!! Maybe this weekend when I have the chance... You know what's sad? There's a Goodwill 4 blocks down the street. I haven't been there since last summer probably? I'm so disappointed in myself.

Love this outfit. Today I'm going to wear all black... inspired by Mary Kate's ensemble at the Burberry show! :)

Haha yes, I am making my dream come true! Yeah that Goodwill is in seedy neighborhood... but I've never really looked through the stuff properly... One day, I will spend a good amount of time and really search for good stuff... I know it will be worth it! :)

Great find! The detailing on the shirt is adorable, and I love that you paired the tan/cognac/nude/whatever color you prefer to call it bag with this outfit.
