the thrift exchange: sheer outfit

What’s this? A full length outfit shot? Outdoors? I know, I don’t know myself either. I was meant to post this yesterday, but thanks to a festive Saturday night (happy birthday Nika and Taylor!) my Sunday was a complete write off. Anyway, this is my fabulouso sheer shirt that Jaharn sent me as part of our Thrift Exchange challenge. I pretty much squealed and jumped around a bit when I opened the parcel because I had been searching for something similar for ages, with no luck. Until now! Moving on from my pink/pastel glut (I know, like I said before, I don’t know myself these days) I decided to pair it with these greyish-khaki pants that I picked up from Supre (*gasp* oh the horreur). I might have to pick up another pair before I go travelling because they are super comfortable and lightweight. See that dot on my left foot? That’s a fly. I was staring death rays at it. It wouldn’t budge and as soon as this photo was taken that leg was flying around like nobodies’ business. I think I’m heading on a bit of a caffeine ramble now. Make sure you check out Jaharn’s sheer outfit over at iamvintagelover.com. I’ll be spending the remainder of the month looking for something pretty and pleated as part of the next challenge. Fun!

    I like! It reminds me very much of a recent outfit by Sea of Ghosts, and hence why I'm keen on buttoning to the top now!
    Supre?! That's it, unfollowed haha.
    Not really. There are a pair of legging/jegging/suede/camel pants that I'm currently eyeing from Supre.
    Sometimes they get it right!

    This is a really lovely outfit and I love the outdoor shot! Also a bit (or maybe a lot) envious of those shoes <3

    Wow! What an amazing find. Peter pan collar, cute buttons AND sheer? I'm pretty sure a shirt can't be too many loves right? =P I love these thrifting challenges that you two ladies are doing. Me and Caroline might try it out one day if you gals don't mind. =)

    Great shirt – especially paired with those pants. Love the shoes too! The fly does not make a great accessory though. πŸ™‚

    @Hannah: hahaha I wouldn't blame you. I spent ages umming and ahhing over whether to go inside the city store. It's crazy claustrophobic.

    @Stacee: think I might be picking up a few more things from there for my travels too. Big gasp. haha

    @Emma: maybe, but it doesn't seem too cooperative!

    @Erin&Caroline: stay tuned because the opportunity to do so may come around very soon!

    @MoPie: agree about the fly!

    i love the drama of the sheer blouse + dark lippy! πŸ™‚ and those supre pants look great! their items always look so much better outside of the store and not paired with other supre stuff πŸ˜›
