First off, I was so excited to see a unified effort with Pittsburgh bloggers, Insta users, and clothes wearers on #StylishPittsburgh day, which was Tuesday. A few amazing ladies took the time and effort (Niki and Tori) and actually made it an official citywide proclamation. Talk about getting official!
I think the Steel City is long overdue to shed itself from the permanently attached Steeler jerseys that have become synonymous with Pittsburgh's sometimes backward fashion sense.
Here are a few of my favorites: (among SO MANY good ones)
To be honest, the day had slipped my mind until morning of, so I tried to get creative with my style and hoped for the best. My choices were kinda limited considering 1.) It was hot enough out to melt, 2.) It had to be work appropriate and 3.) I haven't bought ANY new clothes lately.
Sadly, a lot of that money has been going toward skate gear instead. Crazy, I know.
I'm a little sad I wore my cute outfit yesterday, but tried to remix some old duds today. Pics coming soon. #stylishpittsburgh— Kate (@thriftburgher) July 28, 2015
Typically, I'm not really about the grainy iPhone look, but it was better than nothing, right?
In other news, I'll save most of the "I know you missed me, guys!" drivel. I've just managed to keep myself pretty busy lately. There's roller derby, but I've also opened an Etsy store (!!) with vintage goodies, and there's just general summertime activities that have filled up my schedule. Oh yeah, that full-time job I have also eats up some of my free time. ;) I'll work the blog back into my routine, I swear! I have good intentions. :)
I haven't mentioned the Etsy store much here yet. It's been an ongoing side project thus far. Since I find so many fun goodies at thrift stores, estate sales, flea markets on my own anyway, I thought I'd start a curated collection to share with others. I'm a little behind on listing things, but it's a very exciting project for me!
The store is called There's Waldo, named after my cat, of course. But more on that later.
This weekend, I'm looking forward to: A family reunion, peach picking, flea market shopping at Trader Jack's, and possibly some outdoor roller skating. Hoping to finally enjoy the sun that's been nonexistent most of this summer!
