I’ve had my eye on long skirts, mostly tulle and taffeta, for a long time. But my wish was finally granted when I happened upon this cream vintage lace skirt ($20). It’s in great condition, with only a few minor blemishes. It was definitely worth splurging (I usually spend $10 tops on a thrifted item of clothing). Can’t wait to style this!

Take a look at these impeccable details. I just love the hemline with the bejewelments.

The color of this oversized Wallace sweatear ($6) is so inviting, and the pocket adds some personality.

After the jump, prepare yourself for some great finds that I had to use restraint and leave behind.

You probably recognize this mural (one of many) on the shop’s walls from Santa Monica Boulevard.

I’m kinda kicking myself for not copping this silky blouse.

My stance on patterns: the more the merrier!

The beaded applique ups the fancy factor on this basic Gap tee.

Please note the artistry of the bead work here.

A leather skirt so tiny it probably is a pain to put on, but sassy nonetheless.

Some artwork that would fit nicely in my eclectic apartment.

The ’90s called and they said, ‘You’re welcome!” This reminds me of a boombox my dad got me and my brother Rob for Christmas one year.

Grand total: $28.34
