There are 5 trends that are near and dear to my thrifting heart. While not totally mainstream, they are my favorites in the the world of thrift store fashion.
Just when you thought I put the culottes away, I pull out Eiffel Tower ones! It's hard to see the mini towers with the giant red roses competing for all of the attention. Culottes top my list of fashion because it's skirt-like with perks. The giant pant legs sway when I walk plus I can get low, drop it like's hot, or wrangle V at the playground -- the most likely situation.
2. Vintage Gloves
I feel all ladylike and fresh out of a 50s movie when I wear vintage gloves. Especially opera length ones. They are usually pretty cheap thrifted so it's hard for me to resist them when I spot the. However, Chicago doesn't really have an appropriate season for them. It's either too hot or far to cold for them. I end up putting them in odd locations too. I wish I knew where these sheer gloves are. They could work for Chicago's week long Fall (then we jump right into winter).
3. Elastic Waist
Maybe I should start an elastic waist blog because I seriously love it. Easy on. Easy off. Extremely comfortable. Easy to fit if your waist and thighs are in different sizes.
4. High Waist Pants
High Waist Pants chop up the proportions of my body in the most flattering way. I'm talking navel covering. Cover my navel and my legs "grow" a couple of inches.
5. Secretary Dresses
Blouse on top with a nipped waist and full skirt. Add a pussy bow and I'm in secretary dress heaven! It's the perfect dress combination. Dare I say flattering most? Dresses are probably the easiest fashion around too as it's all one piece.
