Last month I managed to squeeze in a stop at my favorite rummage sale in the Chicago area. After I wasted my time waiting in line for the "French Room," which had a handful of wedding dresses and a bunch of designer clothes, I headed to the other rooms that require a bit more digging. I'm best at digging. I didn't have a lot of time at the sale, but I did manage to scoop up a few random household things and these fab fall blazers for $5 each in absolute mint condition. Oh, the benefits of shopping in rich peoples' cast-offs!
I have been finding a lot of vintage (or in some cases just used) Liz Claiborne pieces and they always seem to have great prints/patterns (like this variation on a favorite black and cream combo) and fit well. Plus I love all those pockets!
And a little vintage Pendleton in a tartan that I never would have worn in blazer form a year ago, but am infatuated with right now. Am I going a little soft in my old age? And by soft, I mean preppy?
Regardless of style, the dig is almost always well worth it.
