I got my Isabella Stewart Gardner on with this floor length maxi dress originally from H&M. I would have never thought to try this on in a retail store because of the old fashion rule that short people shouldn't wear long things, but all of the rules evaporate in the calming and familiar embrace of the thrift store...
I kind of love the super-high slit and the ease of the loose armholes. I didn't get a shot of it, but the back dips a little low and in a nice triangle. Not bad for fast fashion!

Generally I find that setting specific goals for a thrifting endeavor, like "I want to find an amazing romper" sets me up for failure. Instead of looking at each piece for what it is and its possibility, I look at every piece thinking "why are you not a cool romper in exactly my size?" Fortunately, when Cara and I discussed rompers and how she was in the market for one, it didn't lay a curse on our day. I managed to spot this incredible lace one pice that fit her great and is maybe the most versatile garment in the world. Thanks for making our dreams come true! I also need to make a bit of a humblebrag about these Remix Vintage Picasso wedges (retail for $172!) that I spotted for Cara for a cool $19. That said, Remix is a great local LA company that I completely encourage supporting!
