I hope I didn't hype this shirt up all too much, but ahem, (gracious various hand movements and bowing) I give you the Christian Dior shirt that I found for (brace yourselves) $10! It's the most unbelievable sea foam green silk shirt, so you can imagine my disappointment that these photos come no where near bringing it justice. 

That said though, I am still utterly enamored with the item, will probably dote on it for the next few days and have already planned out more outfit play dates for it, most notable being a full white, high-waisted skirt for more of a "Mad Men" retro feel. 

This particular outfit though was all about the shirt, hence a little on the simplistic side with skinny jeans and heels. Basically, I wanted the shirt to do all the talking, what can I say?

And in the meantime, my little Dior darling is hanging up next to my one and only Oscar de la Renta steal of a shirt ($7 from the same thrift store!) so they can be snooty designer clothes together, whispering Italian and French things. You know, basically making the rest of my wardrobe feel inferior. 

Does anyone else do this? Anthropomorphize their clothes? Or is that me filling the void of imaginary friends of yesteryear? 

I swear, I'm not crazy. I swear. 

Shirt: Sea foam green silk vintage Christian Dior
Jeans: Skinny Levis
Shoes: Gladiator heels, Simply Vera
Sunglasses: Vintage 70s glam sunnies

  2. Love the outfit. Those heels are amazing. And don’t worry I talk to everything! I just recently had an argument with my furniture since they did not want to cooperate with the redecorating of my bedroom. It's preposterous I tell you! Hum… that just made me sound a tad bit crazy. Lol.

  9. I wish I could see the color of the shirt, but I get just excited about my designer thrift store finds.

    P.S. Your comment on my blog about my shoes really made me lol, but sad to say I am a 7.5/8, but I am going to keep a close eye on the 7.5's. Lol!

  12. I love this look. I'm definiately one for the simple pleasures and you have captured that essence perfectly with this outfit!

  13. Yep...
    I bought my first pair of sevens a few years ago. They were so perfect, but I bought them in the dead of summer and they were too heavy to wear, so instead of actually wearing them, I took them out and just let them hang in my room.
    When I finally wore them, it rained....hard. And I was scared they would melt...dont know why.

  23. Wow, Krystal!! I can't believe you scored that shirt for $10! I just found a vintage Gucci bag for $3 too so I am pretty stoked about my designer find! LOVE deals and I especially love your little number here! The heels and clutch make such a great contribution to the outfit as well! clothedmuch.blogspot.com

  30. Don't you have all the luck!! Gee wiz! That's awesome. Thrift stores are the best thing to happen to fashion lovers. For obvious reasons. $10 dollar Dior? I mean HELLO!
    The bang hunt is going well! I have a definite idea of what I want and like and what I do not like. I recently moved and was thinking about going to someone new to do them, but I'm afraid I would regret that. So I have to wait til I go home to get my regular chick to do them. Maybe I'll bring your picture in and be like, "I want to look like Krystal!" haha

  32. Tee hee. I do that with my clothes all the time. My dresses all get referred to as "she." Like, "Wouldn't she look great with this cute little scarf?" ;) And psst... I'm so jealous of all your killer vintage finds!
