{style files} vintage candy stripes and matchstick cords

Cardigan {ON}, Shirt {Vintage}, Pants {JCrew}, Heels {Isaac Mizrahi for Target} 
have i mentioned before that i love thrifting and really most things vintage? i love the hunt for new treasures. it makes me all excited and giddy on the inside. my etsy shop is where you'll find most of the lovely things i regularly uncover. i love stocking anything from vintage linens to industrial style home decor items. j usually rolls his eyes at me when once again I venture out and come home with bags and bags of stuff. it's some sort of addiction I guess... etsy hasn't made me a fortune but it sustains my hobby thus far. 
once in a while I will pick up an item of clothing as well. this red and white candy striped shirt is one of those items I just can't part with (yet). you will find stripes all over my closet, well that is if you can find anything in my mess of a closet at all... 

so there you have it for today, stripes on stripes and these awesome matchstick cords I got at JCrew for $3.50. yes, I never thought I'd ever get a piece of clothing there for that cheap.
