IndieGirl 's Thoughts:

This ENTIRE outfit is either thrifted or handed down to me from my grandmother! Everything is ‘recycled’ fashion!
It’s absolutely one of my favorite outfits to wear, and is very sentimental to me because my grandmother passed away two years ago, and the handed down items from her are some of my most prized possessions.

The glasses are my own prescription lenses, with small crystals stuck on for the day, to add to the vintage look.

Bought;
The heels were 25 cents at a Thrift store
The Cowl-neck sleeveless sweater was $2.50 at a Thrift Store.
The Cardigan was $2.00 at Goodwill.
The Pencil skirt was $14 on sale. Regular price $60.

Handed down;
Vintage clutch-type purse
Vintage Pearl necklace
Vintage Cameo Ring
Vintage Sweater Clips
Vintage Pearl Earrings

TOTAL Price; $18.75

What a deal for such a cute outfit!

It 'amazing how you could have created this outfit with little money. The first time I saw this picture I thought "nice but maybe too old!" then I read the description well and I must say that I have totally changed my mind, vintage is great, if someone wears it well and you wear it well!
