One of my beloved resale shops, The Double Exposure, closed it’s doors for good on May 31st.  On that last day, I went hog wild and bought SO MANY things!  This silk blouse… watercolor, floral, pink, poodles, ESCADA… $15… was one of those items.

Who can refuse ESCADA by Margaretha Ley for $15, especially when there are PINK POODLES involved?!  It’s so funny – a couple of the gals didn’t realize they were poodles until I pointed it out!  I LOVE IT!  Even though it’s vintage, it looks like a modern day Equipment blouse.

Thrift Rx:  Search the racks for print or graphic button-up blouses.  BONUS if it’s silk or a designer!  Dress it up for work with a pencil skirt or wear it casual with jeans.

I can’t wait to show y’all my other finds!  And I can’t help but mention how excited I am to be a TOOTSIES Dallas Top Blogger Finalist!  I’ll be updating y’all about events as I know more.  Happy Wednesday!

    Your blouse is such a fun piece… the poodle’s add such sweet whimsy to the outfit! And it’s so sad to hear about Double Exposure. I wish I had known about their sale and taken advantage of it!
