Shirt: Mo Vintage (won in a giveaway on Merl’s blog)
Belt: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: Dolce Vita (Nordstrom Rack)
I don’t wear a lot of vintage pieces. In fact, aside from this shirt, the only other vintage in my closet is this Louis Vuitton bag, but wearing this shirt had the same effect on me as wearing that bag does: I found myself fantasizing about its previous life. Who else has worn this shirt? What sort of memories does it hold for her? Looking through my closet often elicits vivid memories, and I can’t help but wonder what would come to mind if this shirt’s previous owner saw it today.
When I won the Clyde’s Rebirth giveaway, I found myself with a generous credit to both of Merl’s Etsy shops, which afforded me not only my new favorite necklace but also this shirt. I absolutely love the pattern and colors of this shirt, and I was pleased to find that it fit exactly as described. I considered playing up the lavender color, but in the end all I wanted was blue: a blue belt, a dark rinse denim skirt, and pale blue sandals.
I don’t know where this shirt has been, but our story together starts on a beach…
