17/30- thrift tribute




This past summer a little store opened next door to the boutique I worked at, and it was a consignment/home decor/jewelry/other fun things you can think of buying. I started frequenting it quote often after my first buy (an awesome pair of never-been-worn Bronx sandals for $9); to the point where the owner would inform me/tempt me every time she got new stock and my boss and co-workers had gotten used to seeing me walk into work with a little bag from the place next door.
Several worth-it purchases later, came along this studded belt. It was pretty much love at first sight...and at 3 bucks, who could resist?!

blazer-vintage via my mom :)
sweater/tunic- RW&Co.
leggings-??
boots- Franco Sarto
earrings-handmade (vendor in Bulgaria)
belt-thrifted
bangles-vintage

p.s.-you know what's really great about second hand belts-the leather is a little worn in, which means they're much more comfortable to wear! (plus, cheaper,cooler,unique-er, etc....);)
