thrift and designer pairings

ohmygosh, there's a ghost in my video!


that big white blob is me. a really really really bright me, but still me. some might say i'm glowing. i say i'm in need of a sunny holiday. anyway, sorry i'm so blinding in this video. i promise i won't haunt you if you don't watch it all. for my next video, i'll try to tone it down on the white make-up.

for this episode, i created three looks for three occasions using the following three components:

1. a designer piece.
2. one or more items from a thrift store.
3. regular retail store merchandise.

since i buy some of my designer pieces second hand, some might say the line is blurred between thrift and designer. nevertheless, this episode shows how i like to mix new with vintage and expensive with inexpensive pieces to create a look. my method is pretty straightforward - i like to keep the outfit relatively simple and use a designer piece as an accent.

here are the details of my three looks!
