Previously Loved

Anthropologie Dress, thrifted $30, also love this one // Zara Sandals , now on sale // Rebecca Minkoff Sunnies, Nordstrom Rack, similar // C.Wonder Bracelets // Michael Kors Watch // Vintage Locket Pendant 

It's officially that annoying time of the year when rain meets sunshine. When you need sunglasses and an umbrella within a 30 minute photo shoot. When the rain stops and the sun peeks out and just for a moment, you think it's going to be a great day. Then suddenly your hair does this funky, curly, out of control thing after spending 20 minutes straightening it with a flat iron.  

But none of that bothers me today. You know why? Because I am over the moon in my previously loved Anthropologie dress. And since I am going to use the term previously loved a lot in my post today, I will give you my definition:

Previously loved (Verb):  a gently worn article of clothing that someone loved so much they bought it and for whatever reason is now being sold at a consignment store, yard sale or thrift store for someone else to steal at a fraction of the original price.  Also, I made this up, but you get the idea.

It's a hit or miss when shopping at consignment stores, but the thrill of the hunt makes my heart skip a beat when I find a treasure like this. 

Have you ever found a previously loved piece that you just can't live without? 

Thanks so much for reading!

  7. Half my wardrobe is thrifted, you can't believe what people get rid of sometimes (still with tags on?!). This shade of pink looks amazing on you! P x

  8. Thank you! You are right, It's crazy what I have bought that still has tags on it! Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend! xo

  9. hi Monica! Thanks for this fun post. That dress is great!!! Oh yes, I have a very wonderful 'previously loved' item. My sparkle jeans! (they have been in many of my posts, perhaps too many) but they are WH|BM brand and I got them for $1! I couldn't believe it and when I tell people in person about them, their jaw drops every time. I love them and they are so dang "loved by me now". Thanks for your encouraging words and happy wishes and for being at "Fashion item Friday" each week. ♥, Renae of Simple Sequins. (disqus has me confused again)
