Of Science and Thrifting!

Who: Lizzy of ScientistChic

What: A vintage wicker handbag, made in Hong Kong.

In a little antique store in Rockport, Texas, on my 24th birthday, whilst was on a holiday. I love the idea that this little bag traveled so far across the world, I’d really love to know what its journey has been like!

How Much: A steal, at $18!

When I Use It:
“Whenever I’m going for a full-on period look, I’ll wear kitten heels, little gloves, and a vintage ’50s dress with a massive skirt! Or, as the perfect partner for a summery outfit, like a floaty skirt and simple blouse.”

Shopping Tips: “A lot of my best finds have come from the most uninspiring places – the darker and dingier the better, because if there is something good to be found, you are very likely to get to it first!”
