I always get a little thrill realizing that my entire outfit is second-hand. A few days ago my husband suggested we go out on a morning outing while the kids were in school.
We drove to Tel Aviv to check out the newly renovated Sarona area. The Sarona Complex is a project of the city of Tel Aviv to revitalize an old German Templar village that sits pretty much in the center of the city. It is still a work in progress but quite a few stores and restaurants have opened. It was very hot that day and after a quick walk around we met my brother-in-law for brunch, but my husband did humor me with a photo shoot.
What better for a village brought back to life than second-hand clothes? I wore two second-hand pieces by Israeli designers. The top is by Ronen Chen. Ronen Chen is a relatively well-known Israeli designer. I have been very lucky thrifting Ronen Chen pieces and have kept a few in my closet. This top is great because the drapey part is perfect for my mid-section and I love the angles of the hem.
My bright yellow shoes are second-hand by Israeli designer Shani Bar. I am happy to say that not only are they a fun color but they are comfortable after a day of walking. Normally I wear flats for walking. Even low heels can bother me after a while, but I was comfortable wearing these all morning.
I am still a proud American, and was happy to add my made in the U.S.A. thrifted True Religion jeans shorts. My last thrifted item is a Christian Lacroix Bazar bag. It is not easy to thrift good bags, but apparently this one was overlooked because it is cloth not leather. I don’t understand – am I the only thrifter that watched Absolutely Fabulous?
Linking for the first time to Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style. Thank you Patti for inspiring me to make myself visible!
