Lately, I'm entirely taken with the idea of nude, buff, and beige clothing. Unfortunately, my skin has a lot of yellow undertones to it, and the wrong color can make me look like I'm suffering from a particularly stubborn case of jaundice, especially in the winter months when I'm lacking a healthy tan.
Nonetheless, I'm no nevernude (like Tobias Funke) and I'm still willing to give the trend a try for spring, provided I find some truly well-made pieces that won't break the (perilously empty) bank. Clearly, none of the gems in the collage above fall into that category. So sad...
I did, however, manage to shop today at my favorite thrift store, Black and Brown. I have a great little symbiotic thing going where I'll sell back some of my clothes and use the store credit to come home with new goodies. Expect an outfit post tomorrow, but here's what I adopted:
This totally adorable, slightly tacky 90's dress with chains in the back and Chanel-esque pearl buttons.
