Thrifted Vintage

 Blouse: Thrifted (vintage)
Jeans/Necklace/Heels: Target
Earrings: Old Navy
Belt: Thrifted

I love finding vintage clothes at Goodwill. Especially on 50% off day! This blouse only set me back 2.12
The details on the front are so me. And it is light and comfy for the southern heat and humidity that is starting up here in South Carolina!

"Vintage" is a tricky term. It doesn't mean the same thing to everyone. But, one of my favorite articles of reference is THIS post about labels.
One easy thing I always look for when glancing through racks and rack of clothes is the longer/larger sleeve length of a blouse or dress. Tomorrow I'll take some pictures of my recent vintage finds and their labels so you can see some more examples. Over time it definitely gets easier to recognize older styles! Now, go find some at your local thrift store! You never know what you'll find  :)
