Basement bags

Dress: Vintage(?)
Scarf as Belt: Urban Outfitters
Sandals: Target

This afternoon I went through just a few of the hundreds of plastic bags filled with old clothes in my parents basement. Tons of neon striped sweaters, stirrup leggings, and old school uniforms were found, and faaaaaar too many pieces came back upstairs with me to be tried on. The super-sheer dress above was one of my finds, I have no idea where it came from or why the hem is raw and uneven, but I think that I can do something fun with it! I also found some of my old leotards from when I studied ballet, with strappy and low scooping backs. Those will definitely be fun to play with this summer! I styled up one of the leotards below.

Jacket: Ralph Lauren
Leotard: Capezio
Skirt: American Apparel
Boots: Forever 21

i'm pretty upset about it, because they're designed well.
