Patches

Thrifted elbow patch sweater; Blu Moon Almost Famous skirt courtesy of Planet Blue;
Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots from
Solestruck

I really scored when I stumbled upon this perfectly worn-in sweater in the mens section of Salvation Army. Just $3 for the exact style I had been searching for, complete with elbow patches! I'm a hardcore thrift store addict now, I go thrifting at least once a week - it's the best way to fulfill my shopaholic tendencies while being unemployed!

I love patched elbows on sweaters, blazers, coats. A detail that gives a chic vibe to an outfit.

Beautiful outfit! It's funny. I also go thrift shopping a lot more now that I'm unemployed because it's so CHEAP! And you find such fabulous things, as you clearly did with this outfit. :) Guilt-free shopping at it's best!! xo

love the litas...
uggs went to paris avec moi and were the best remedy after pounding the cobblestones all day.
uggs has a store on rue st honore and they are waaay more expensive in paris than in US. (a rarity)
