Get Schooled

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

Outfit Details:
White blouse with button back and pintucking: thrifted
Button down skirt: C/O BB Dakota
Polka dot socks: Target
Brown fringe loafers: thrifted


I kind of felt like I was wearing a costume in this gettup but I guess taking inspiration from school girls every once in a while couldn't hurt. I never went to a school that required uniforms so here is my best rendition. However, now that I think about it...I do love pleats, cardigans, loafers, and navy blue so maybe I would have thrived?

In more important news: Thursday (September 22) is my 23rd birthday and to celebrate, I'm offering a ONE DAY sale at Three Feathers Vintage for 23% off all items! This is the biggest discount i've ever given so if you've had your eye on anything in the shop...Thursday is definitely the day to buy. Use code: BIRTHDAYGIRL at check out!

  2. Perfect back-to-school inspiration. I am loving the skirt and the bow neckline. The Vintage Expo does happen twice a year. So, you know, if you want to make a visit to SF in the Spring, that would be just awesome. You could stay with me!

  3. This is so cute! I especially like the collar and the polka dots. I'm drawn to the schoolgirl look myself, and I wore school uniforms for eight years. We always used to jazz things up with fun legwear and footwear, ha! Also, your birthday is one day before mine!

  4. This doesn't look like a costume at all, I really like your interpretation of a classic school girl look. Is your little bow a vintage dress belt? You've inspired me to try to do something similar with a buttondown blouse!

  5. Leilani: Yes! Good eye, that bow is indeed a fabric belt from a vintage skirt of mine :)
