indigo crush


     A little over a week ago, I opened a fortune cookie that said "You will find a new hat to wear.". At first, I felt that it was completely in accurate, since I basically despise wearing all hats (except to plain beanies), but now I believe that it may have been a metaphor for thrifting awesome additions to my entire wardrobe. The motorcycle jacket earlier this week was perfect, but the next day I found these '90s crushed velvet platform that I instantly fell in love with.
     What's so amazing about trying to source your wardrobe primarily on vintage and second hand pieces is that each piece can inspire a completely different style that you may not have considered if you were paying full price for new items. Whenever I go into retail shops or boutiques, I tend to narrow my eyes to finding pieces that are "me" and eventually end up bring home a bunch of basics. I feel funny using the term normcore but by nature, my style is really just jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers. For only a few dollars though, anyone can afford to step out of their comfort zone and try something offbeat.

  1. I totally agree with what you said about vintage and second-hand shopping! Buying new, I always come away with basics as well! (Maybe we're just cheap? Haa. I kind of am. Can't wait to afford buying some nicer non-basics someday.) Super cool look too... loove those platforms. What are those pants? They look cozy. Missing my highwaisted jeans.
