A couple weeks ago I was home for the weekend, and the forest behind my house was finally showing its beautiful fall colors. The orange and bark brown palette inspired my Sunday outfit featuring one of my most unique vintage dresses, a Laundry by Shelli Segal piece handed down to me by my grandmother.


My socks are from Walmart I believe, I got them two springs ago for a themed party that I didn’t think I would ever wear again but the quality is actually fair considering they were from the little girl’s section.

The shoes are a secondhand pair of Vince Camuto‘s I found on eBay. Since there were no major cosmetic scuffs I actually loved the worn in feel, and they were only $14 give or take a few bucks.I really hate spending a lot of money on shoes that I will wear frequently, since I know they will get some bumps and bruises! I think this is a great way to build your shoewear collection without dishing out money you may not have at the moment. Being in college, it’s hard to justify dropping $200 on shoes but $14 is totally reasonable! I couldn’t find my exact pair, but I’ve linked some similar styles down below and I also recommend looking on eBay for brand names! I might do a separate Thrift Hunter’s Handbook chapter on secondhand shoes, if you want to know my tips on thrifting footwear the right way just let me know in the comments!!

I love that 70’s inspired prints and colors are huge right now, following the conclusion of all big fashion week shows you can see these retro elements in the streetwear and a lot of the designers seemed to be using this decade as an inspiration.img_3175
