J'adore Dior

I was cleaning my room recently and dug up one of my vintage finds from my college days! Don't you love that feeling you get when you find a lost treasure in your room? The only thing better than thrifting has got to be finding forgotten items in your closet and bringing them out to play!

I purchased this vintage Dior (photos below) clutch a few years ago at a trendy thrift shop in Newport Beach. At the time, it was a splurge for me, since I usually spend very little money (kind of the point of thrifting, right? haha) on pre-loved items, but I could not resist this cute designer piece!

How do you feel about thrifting? Do you have any thrifted pieces you adore?

Clothing: Chiffon hi-low top- local boutique, Hi-lo skirt- Foreign Exchange (Double Zero label)

Accessories: Antique gold cuff & bib necklace- flea market (similar here), Two-toned chainlink bracelet- DIY, Copper bracelet ring- f21 (only $3.80!), Vintage Dior clutch- thrifted ($58)

Shoes: Strappy Platform Sandals- Olsenboye (as featured in previous post)

Just thought I'd add a quick link here to my newest feature! The lovely, Miss Michaella of Fashionable Unicorn featured me as a guest blogger today. Check out the interview here!

I love the hemline of that flowy skirt! You're so cute! Thanks for dropping by my blog! =)

I agree with you about Hunger Games. It was a bummer that they never made it clear about Katniss' fake love for Peeta. I also wished Gale were a more prevalent character. But I still can't wait for Catching Fire! =)
