What I Wore:: 8.04.11


It is beyond miserable in the south during the summer months. It is already pushing 90 degrees at 8 A.M. The highs lately have been about 110, 120 with the heat index! Wednesday, I had errands to run around town. Being that it is too hot for regular clothing, and my car does not have air conditioning, I opted for this bustier I bought at a thrift store in Columbia for, get this, $1! That's right, it was only $1! 

 

While I don't normally show my middriff, I just think it's generally trashy and doesn't look good. While I thought differently in my wild early twenties, I now dress quite conservatively with respect to exposed skin. But this bustier paired with high-waisted shorts, the four or so inches of my mid section that was shown was all in good taste. I felt like a 50s movie star or something.


Bustier:: thrifted, His House thrift store, vintage, $1.
Belt:: my favorite, a gift from my mother, vintage, flower stamped and hand painted.
Shoes:: thrifted, brown leather pumps, $4.
Shorts:: blue cotton, vintage, thrifted, $3.


Hope you are all enjoying your weekend and staying cool throughout this heat wave!
