Daily Threads: My Lisa Turtle Top Debut

  
       
       
              

  
top: thrifted, shorts: banana republic pants, shoes: bandolino {similar}  

So I'm pretty sure this is the most inexpensive outfit I've ever worn. The top was thrifted for $4, the shorts were a pair of pants that were given to me, but were too short - so I made them into shorts, and my shoes were bought on clearance at DSW - I'm pretty sure for less than $20 (and maybe even an additional percentage off that!). And I love it - the whole look is perfect - and that silk top is amazing during a hot day. Trust me! It's so light and airy. And it gives me a waist! Oh, it is love. Happy Weekend!

That top looks really great with the shorts, such a lovely combination for warm weather. I love outfits that didn't cost much to put together!

That top is fab! I said you'd give Lisa Turtle a run for her money and you did!

Bethany said...

you know, I was really skeptical when I saw you purchased that the other day. maybe it was the lisa turtle reference that made it hard for me to visualize it in a chic outfit. but the top with the shorts and shoes looks AMAZING. I'm impressed!

CessOviedo said...

You did so well with that pink shirt! Your whole outfit is so cute!

Bethany said...

I have really, ridiculously long, thin legs like yours (we are so blessed!) and have always had trouble finding shorts that look appropriate... I'm pretty sure I wear them too short because I'm afraid I'll look "old" in long ones, but those look PERFECT on you, just absolutely classy and perfect.

Also, I am see fuscia everywhere... and I love it!

I think you are one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen!!!!

egad! I looooove this look. I gotta be honest, when I first saw the top, I had a "what is she thinking?" moment but it looks so great on you and MUCH more expensive than $4. I love love love it, and you have officially inspired me to hit up my local thrift shop.

Outfits with that price tag are the best. I could see that with a belt and perhaps some crazy brooches or a big flower. Have fun remixing it.

caroline said...
