tank top: American Apparel
bow tie as necklace: vintage
This outfit combines two of my favorite recent thrift finds. The first is this vintage bow tie. I just clipped it to a gold chain that I already had to make a necklace. I've also thought about wearing it on a belt. The other find is this pair of vintage Hush Puppie oxfords. I actually saw them at thrift store a few weeks ago but didn't buy them because one of them was missing a shoelace and I didn't feel like bothering to replace it. Lazy, I know. But this past week, at another thrift store I ran across a bag of unused vintage shoelaces still in their original packaging. I immediately thought of these shoes and hoped they would still be around. Well, I guess they are ugly enough that no one else wanted them because when I went back to get them, they were still there. Yay!
