the moral wardrobe: make do

easter outfit easter outfit

I'd been eyeing a yellow vintage dress from a downtown vintage store for the past two weeks, hoping I would be able to come up with the money to buy it for Easter. But time passed and money was tight, so I looked in my closet and made do.

It worked out nicely, anyway, because I hadn't even worn this thrifted skirt yet.

Ethical choices are bolded below:

  • Striped Top - Thrifted

  • Skirt - Thrifted

  • Belt - Vintage

  • Shoes - Kohl's

  • Earrings - Vintage Bakelite

  1. I have a top very similar to the one you are wearing. I would never have thought to tuck it into a floral skirt, but I love how you did! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. No problem! Glad I could inspire your outfit choices!
