PUT A KNOT IN IT

thrifted skirt, american deadstock fringe vest, jacket from stella tank from melrose trading post, random jewelry

It hasn't been difficult to keep up with only thrifting until Chrissa pointed out this crochet dress posted on Stella's facebook yesterday.



Maybe a reflection of a design Free People would put out for Spring? But unlike their insane pricing, this dress is only $45. Eeep. Casey like. Casey want. Casey won't buy because of stupid thrifting limitations. 
Suddenly I feel like a dog with a steak put in front of it. And I can't eat the steak.
I've found a few prime clothing gems while thrifting lately, though. This velvet skirt being one of them. I have made it infinitely better by simply tying a knot in it. Most everything that is "eh" can be made "ay!" with a knot. It's a little crazy how much better things can look entangled in themselves. For example this dress from Spanish Moss:



Am I right? Knots, man. Put a knot in it. Not to be confused with Put A Bird On It.

  11. LOVE IT. but what's new? you have the best style, hands down. and yes, i feel you on the shopping restrictions. i haven't bought anything new in awhile, only thrifted/vintage. with the exception of a dress/accessories at Crossroads. And everything looks better when you mess it up a bit, right?
