The idea for this post was inspired by one recently featured on the lovely Madelene’s blog, Le Portillon.
Bag-- This Coach bag was found at a Church thrift shop during my summer-stay near Woodstock. It only cost me 4 dollars, which is pretty crazy considering it's authentic and in good condition, but many people upstate don’t consider thrifting “trendy” so it’s easier to find goodies. While I’m not a big Coach fan this bag is atypical of their standard stock; it looks like it’s been weathered a bit or worn in for just for me.
Lipstick case-- My mom got this lipstick case at a Nicole Miller sample sale in the 80’s and it is printed with all of these unusual buttons. Nicole Miller’s 1980's designs are so unlike anything else I’ve seen in fashion; her cooking and time travel prints (always displayed atop a black background) will always be engrained in my memory.
Wallet- One of my closest friends helped pick out this wallet for me at Forever21. It’s a play on Pendleton, so obviously I went for it!
Sunglasses- These plastic star-shaped sunnies were gifted to me by my neighbor. Although she’s a toddler, she acknowledges a fashion moment when she sees one.
