-The Thrill of the Chase: tracked down wardrobe pieces that became epic, requiring alterations, patience, waiting and luck, a search for perfect pairings-
Dress: altered three times gray maxi dress Bobi at small beach boutique, Brown buckled leather and suede wedges: hunted down the perfect brown wedge last summer and finally know how to wear them Nordstroms Brass Plumb, Green Leather Duffle Purse (searched for about 2 years and repaired it twice): Tano at Anthropologie, 555 Soul 3/4 Length Hoodie (had forever and wanted for months brfore finally finding her): Buffalo Exchange, Middle Eastern Colorful Scarf: wanted for months and found at a thrift store in Utah over winter break for $2, Jewel Mint Necklace: found last week after coveting for a while, Shell bracelet: handmade by beach vendor finally found and scored the right one at a festival, Bullet Necklace: gifted by smart, lyal hubby who listens and uses Etsy, Gucci purple small sunnies: lusted after for years and months: found two years ago at Nordstroms (randomly deep discounted), Silver Feather Earrings: Payless of all places, a dark and shmmery polish: Chanel Black Pearl & Coffee colored lipstick: Clinique counter.
It's all a bit modern hippie chic, but I adore sporty basics in gray mixed up with leather and texture. I think this outfit is really playful and a thrill since all the pieces have been collected slowly over time and nothing id simply pulled off a rack and collected/paired from one particular season or style!
