Thrifted Thursday: Vibrant Button Down from Assistance League, Long Beach

December 21, 2017

This Thrifted Thursday is all about this vibrant Bob Mackie button down ($9). The bright red color immediately caught my eye, and I love that the geometric design features pops of turquoise and purple, and is a bit daring, edgy even. It’s giving me Southwestern desert goddess vibes, and the tiny Ms emblazoned on the gold buttons are a testament to the designer’s impeccable attention to detail. The tag reads “Wearable Art,” which is an apropos descriptor. Frankly, it’s a masterpiece! It gets better because one of the store clerks at the Assistance League told me that the renowned Bob Mackie has crafted creations for the likes of Cher, Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, Tina Turner and Whitney Houston. This was a definite steal considering. While it is slightly larger and, thus, longer than my normal preference, the shirt can act like a tunic of sorts. Rolling up the sleeves is a must, and this might be cute with a floppy-brimmed hat. I can’t wait to wear this red denim top, which will pair nicely with some skin-tight black leggings and my black cowboy boots. Yee-haw, y’all!

Grand total: $9.00
