Shopping at a thrift store can be very nostalgic. As I mentioned in my first Thrift finds Tuesday post, you honestly have no clue what you’re going to find. When I wear this thrifed sheer, see-through top, it brings me back to when I used to play dress up at my Grandma’s house. My Grandma was so stylish; if you’re wondering where I got my style from and also my mom, of course! Lol, it’s interesting how things come around full circle…but putting on my Grandmother’s clothes was almost like an affair.
Thrift Finds Tuesday
If I was going to play dress up, I meant business! Made sure the top, bottoms, and shoes matched! I had to get to work and I was serious about it (unsure what work I was actually getting to! Haha).
When I would wear my Grandmother’s clothes it felt as if the clothes has chosen me. Not to sound cliche, but just think about all the clothes people sort through at a thrift store and the untold stories behind them. It’s as if the clothes I chose to wear were a subconscious choice of who I wanted to be.
I purchased this top a couple years ago and to be honest, I don’t know what I was thinking when I picked it out! The hesitation I have with this top is that it’s hard to style.
I love layers and being able to add more items to create a look. However, this top speaks volume and if I added anything more, it would be tacky and almost insulting to the designer.
Despite my hesitation with styling this top, every time I wear it I get a compliment. So I guess you can say that the story behind this top is that it’s okay to simplify your outfit and allow one item to do all the work; creating it’s own affair.
What’s that one item in your wardrobe that doesn’t require much because it speaks so well for itself?
Let me know in the comments!
Stay on the look out for future
