Welcome to the Ageless Style Link Up where each month one of the lovely ladies in our group chooses a theme and we all pull together our best look. This month Ana from Mrs. American Made chose the theme Second Time Around sharing a vintage or second hand piece.
I may be the first one kicked out of our group as this theme is not one I readily have available. While I am often amazed at the second hand finds others come across, I can honestly tell you I do not shop second hand. It’s not that I haven’t tried but thus far I have never been successful and honestly the time it takes to shop for a great find is just not something I’m willing to do at this stage in my life.
What I am fairly good at, however, is keeping items for an extended time in my own closet. Sometimes they remain so long the style comes around a second time. Today I’m sharing one of those looks I loved in the late 90’s which appears to be making a comeback.
I’m thinking I love this more casual look so much better! This top is at least three years old as well but thankfully these sleeves are still making it into the fashion scene.
I also love this striped city clutch I picked up last spring which is still in stock. I would love to help you earn one of your own by hosting a Stella & Dot virtual party. Special bonuses in March make it a great month to host. Contact me if you are interested!
So what about you? Are you a thrifty shopper hitting up the 2nd hand shops in your area? Or have you tried some of the 2nd hand shops online such as Poshmark? I’d love to know your strategy and how you make this work for you.
