You know what’s even better than thrifting (I can’t believe I’m catching myself say ANYTHING is better than thrifting).  Shopping in your mom’s vintage closet is what.
Her closet is amongst the top shopping destinations for this vintage crazed girl.  An archival collection of amazing fashion spanning from the 60’s to the 90’s. 
Whenever I spot something on the runway that looks similar to a piece I’ve seen and worn out of her closet, she gets a call from me to pleaaaaseeee let me borrow it for just a little while (again).  This rotating relationship I have with her wardrobe is a bonding experience for us as well, a way that generations cross and build upon decades of great style choices, the glue that makes them a continuous story about who she was and whom she evolved into as decades went by.
This latest post is an homage to my mom’s incredible style, her humble and sweet persona.  Her soft exterior and warrior interior. I strive to be as strong and sweet as her every day.

I paired her top with a really edgy black leather midi skirt and to me nothing says style like mixing the unexpected.

Outfit Notes: Top – Dina’s closet; Skirt – Omnia Vintage; Clutch – Omnia Vintage; Thrifted oxfords; Bracelet – Omnia Vintage.

 Oh and look who decided to steal my look.  NBD girl i’ll let it slide this one time..

    Dear Pretty in Thrift!

    I love your individual style and the whole layout of your blog. Another New Yorker Blogger recommend me your blog. I would like to contact you personally but unfortunately I dont know where? :/

    I would like to invite you to DIY workshop event in New York as a special guest. I am coming to NY with a film crew and I am looking for creative people with individual style like you! You dont have to be infront of camera if you dont want to but I just want to create a little event with bloggers and guests who want to join my “Denim Kitchen” in the new Mavi store. Certainly you get a free jeans or shirt which you can spice up with all the craft articles I have available… just message me here:

    So cool that you shop your mom’s closet. Mine ditched her vintage stuff years ago, and I guess her daughters did too as we used to wear her pieces in high school. :(

      Nothing like revisiting her closet time and time again and making new discoveries 😉
