Thrifting: Exposed!

Who: Catherine, also a blogger with the name of “Silhouette Girl”

What: A beautiful linen dress with an incredible tie-dyed bodice, and an exposed zipper

Where: The Punk Rock Flea Market held in Philadelphia semiannually

How Much: $25

When I use It: Anytime! I’ve only worn it once so far, but it can be casual enough for running errands, for a fun night out, or even dressed up. (Believe me, I’ve come up with tons of combinations that I can’t wait to wear out!)

Shopping Tips: Even if you find yourself buying impulse items (I try to avoid them, don’t we all? But sometimes they just… happen), try to look for versatility. If I can’t come up with enough ways to wear an item to get my money’s worth, it’s clearly not worth it. It may be cute, but if I wear it once, it’s not something that will help me further develop my style. I’m all about being versatile.

    Cute outfit, but I just went to the last punk rock flea market and it sucke. There was barely anyone there selling clothes and the place they hold it is way too small. It was more junk then vintage finds.
