I have a theory. I believe that if you really want something, it will come to you. My thrifting adventures have proven that to me repeatedly. For some reason I always run into something I have been craving. Today was, one of those days.
I have been wanting a bottom and matching cropped top for a while (trust me, ask my friends haha... I was actually nagging at one point) but couldn't really find it. Well except for the adorable Dolce&Gabanna s/s 2012 set... which I could never afford. Anyways, a suit like that reminds me of those playfull forties/fifties sun pictures, where the girls are wearing cropped blouses and matching bottoms.. paired with cat eyes and a wicker tote.... I adore this look because it's feminine, sensual but not trashy. It's where sexy meets the conservatism from the forties, which so is very much my taste in general (the contrast between modern and historic.)

I was in love with the H&M for water set, but that didn't fit me... So the last few week I've been experimenting a bit in hope top create that look, with what I have hanging in my closet. Like the sunskirt with tied up sheer blouse...When I was in the thrifstore today, I at first didn't really find anything special. But, and this is the key to good thrifting, when I took a closer second look I found this 'thing' clining onto a hanger. It looked like a random piece of cloth at first, but when I 'dissected' it... OH MY could this be the sun-playsuit I have been wanting..?
I had to take it home no matter what and I didn't even try it on. I hopped to the cash register and gladly paid the whole 5 euros they wanted for the suit. When I finally arrived at my doorstep, after a busride filled with the excitement children feel when going on a fieldtrip, I instantly pulled it out of the bag and put it on. Perfection!
