Calvin and Karl
Simple spring chic sourced entirely with thrift.
Calvin and Karl are the heroes here.
I found my never been worn soft as butter white Calvin Klein tux jacket at the Salvation Army in NYC…my favorite store in Manhattan is on 46th St between 10th&11th…Check out the thrift boutique I set up there...this jacket cost me $10 USD.
My skinny leg jeans are Karl Lagerfeld-these ones hail from the Cat Protection Society charity shop in Enmore Sydney, a self confessed fashion hound I didn’t even know such a place existed but they have great stock, really well edited plus I’m all for the paw dollar 🐾
Lets talk about the handbag…I just love this little perspex number, while not the real deal how much of a Chanel moment is it!? I did gasp when I lay my eyes on it for $5 at The Salvos Store in Darlinghurst Sydney. That’s one of the many things I love about thrifting/op shopping you can find so many pieces to recreate a designers aesthetic for less.
I feel really fresh yet dressed in this ensemble, a white tux is a striking alternative summer or winter and a piece you will get so much wear out of. Cool with ripped denim, belted over a dress and beyond.
Scour your local thrift stores for one of your own or try sourcing from ethical labels.
Good on you is a great sustainable shopping resource that helps you make more eco friendly fashion choices, definitely check them out for your simple spring chic.
Thanks to the sweet Miss Chelli from Ubranding for the pics
