The recipe for a perfect blouse.


This week has been a lucky one as far as thrifting goes. It all started on Saturday when I took Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky to Saver's during her short stop here in Little Rock. The second I spotted this peter pan collar blouse, I knew I would be leaving with it. It didn't matter if it fit or not. The combination of a peter pan collar and sweet tulip sleeves was all I needed, and the fact that the print reminded me of something that Nadia from Nadinoo would create was just the icing on the cake.



Vintage Blouse, Sweater & Boots: Saver's / Tights: Zara / Vintage Skirt: Esprit via Brown Bag Vintage

I usually wouldn't have gone back to Saver's so soon, but my friend Hannah asked me to help her shop for a vintage dress after class earlier today. I found this awesome sweater and pair of boots that I'm wearing, along with a few others things that I'll have to show you later. I'd like to work on a 'thrift trip magic' post soon so I can share all the fun pieces I've been finding lately!

In other exciting news, the sweet Ottavia from Italy did an interview with me about my blog. If you're bored and want to read some of my silly answers you can find it on Ottavia's blog, Eight Biscuits!

that blouse is such a great find Starr! You are a thrifting wizard. Love the colour of the skirt with the sweater too, such a lovely autumn outfit.

Eep, I love that blouse! It really is perfect and you look beautiful in the first photo. By the way, I totally showed your blog to my French high school students during English club which is really when a bunch of adorable French girls hang out with me during lunch and we talk about fashion and blogs and I show them my favorite American blogs (aka yours!) Don't be surprised if you suddenly gain a huge following in young French girls!
love,
Jenny

Hey, I'm new here but I must say I love your blog! I'm sure you know this already, but you look like Zooey Deschanel, but prettier! What a beauty! And I love his particular photoshoot, the outfit, the settings and the atmosphere in th photographs just make it feel so retro romantic! Beautiful hair too, I'm a little jealous on how long and pretty it is!
