Recently I noticed that I've been really drawn to the colors green and blue. Aqua is a combination of both, right? So I had my cake and ate it too today, in a color sense, and went with this pretty handmade vintage dress that I thrifted last year. The color is great, but what really sold me on it are the little flowers. You can't really tell from the photos, but they sparkle in the light. It was quite the pick-me-up on a dreary day.
The jean jacket is another favorite that I found in a branch of a very popular local consignment store chain. I usually don't frequent consignment stores. The prices are higher than my usual thrifty haunts and they don't have that much vintage (in my experience). I'm glad I wandered into the one where I found the little jacket though. I love how it creates a very specific silhouette. In one of my history classes in college we discussed how clothing changed over time and molded people's bodies into various shapes deemed fashionable and attractive in different eras. I feel like this jacket does just that, emphasizing the bust and waist and making the arms look slim. Thank goodness its made out of stretchy denim though, otherwise I might not be able to wear it for too long:)
