Patterns and Prints

IMG_7733I’m so in love with the collar on this vintage polka dot blouse!! It looks very 70’s to me and has one of those fabulous old labels inside with the brand ‘Rhonda Lee’ on it.  It’s sheer but not too sheer and the sleeve length is perfect – can you tell how thrilled I am with this thrifty find? I also found this Express floral skirt at a local thrift shop and added my Joe Fresh for JC Penney sweater that I bought at that pop-up on Melrose last month.  I’m also wearing those Marc Jacobs black and silver butterfly heels.
