T by Alexander Wang dress | couple years old…
Inhabit linen top | from MOSS designer consignment
Splendid sandals | I sized down 1/2 size. I really like these, but they squeeze my toes a little bit, not the most comfortable for a lot of walking, but very cute on.
Vintage straw tote | a few years old, got it on etsy (here are some similar!)
Every time I buy something from MOSS, I think I need to shop there more often. I always find the most unique and interesting pieces there – this time it was this top, but I also tried on a pair of silk Apiece Apart “culottes” that were AMAZING, but just a bit too short or too long on me. I know most Inhabit pieces back and forth, and I knew I’d seen this one somewhere, either on their own site or on a sample sale site, but never really gave it a second look. The benefit of shopping in person is that you get to appreciate all the details, and little things that make an item special. And this top is SOOO special.
The top cinches in the back with a tie, so it’s a little shorter in the back than in the front. And it has TINY shoulder pads which allow it to have the stronger shoulder that it does, otherwise, it would be more slouchy, and not so perfect in my opinion. Besides all that, I love the idea of buying something someone else has loved; it makes it more special. I also love to know that the pieces I sell through consignment go to a good home, and to someone who will love them as much as I did. It’s also recycling, and I’m totally down with that.
Do you shop designer consignment? What’s the best thing you’ve found there?
I’m going to be in Atlanta next week for a family vacation, so posting might be a big sporadic around here, but I’ll try not to be a stranger 🙂
I hope you had a great fourth, and a good weekend ahead!!
