Thrift Shop and Yo Grandma’s Style
When Macklemore helped us understand the joys of thrifting from once trash to “another man’s come up,” the dig for second-hand threads on the inter web exploded with possibilities for those many poor youtube/tumblr savvy college life pockets to keep being stylish – even if it may have come from your grandpa or ma’s closet.
Folk style may be the best at representing every Millennial’s affectionate overuse of the hashtags #OOTD #Wanderlust since it combines both the free-to-be-me gypsy boho trend mixed with the thirst-for-travel ethnic inspired details.
It reminds me of my Japanese culture teacher while I was still at university who wore a new outfit from the many countries she visited. She’s been to over 48 countries and counting! She is definitely someone who truely breathes and lives to learn and teach other cultures while being a well traveled lady herself! Imagining all the passport stamps and left over currency she must have collected over the years…
Side note, I am also completely taken by the brand Lily Brown and this cute-to-handle top from their first Autumn Collection lineup. I love the cute embroidery but I must say, the mesh material itches like hell! Alas, beggars can’t be choosers… even with that price tag hmm ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Now to find some big ass coat…that I might need to get from my grandmother…
Until Next Time!
