Love It Link It!!

Monday, November 4, 2013




 A couple weeks ago I stumbled upon a pile of Zara clothes at The Goodwill. My Goodwill is really awesome about putting out all the garments from a single donator at once (which is awesome when you find a stylish donator). On this particular day that I was shopping I found 6 different Zara garments, valued at over $400! This silk polka dot blouse was part of the loot.

I put this little ensemble together and B and I headed to the financial district of DTLA. I wanted to show you a little bit of the cityscape that has become so familiar to me. Being downtown reminds me of how much I miss Chicago. I don't miss the weather of course, but I miss the feeling of being in downtown Chicago, and Los Angeles just doesn't have the same vibe. I love LA, but for very different reasons. DTLA has it's own vibe, and one that I am beginning to appreciate. I loved showing B where I go to work, where I go to lunch, and of course "my" Starbucks. I really loved shooting my outfits downtown too, so expect more soon!


It's that time of the week again, the Love it, Link it Blog Hop! If you're new here, Love it Link it, is a weekly blog link up that starts every Monday night at 9pm PST. This link up only has one theme: link what you love! Please feel free to share your outfit of the day, a great DIY, your favorite new mascara, or anything else you think the blog-o-sphere should know about! Grab the button and start linking!!

Looks like you found some great scores at Goodwill! I went to Goodwill for the first time in I don't know how many years and left empty handed…I was way overwhelmed by how much things they have there. I wished they sorted by size instead of colors.

Love that polka blouse and how you added dark tights to make it look more 'fall-ish'

I seriously need to find a good thrift store, I can't even imagine coming across a whole pile of Zara. Did it kind of feel like Christmas?! ;)

Super jealous of your Zara find! That's amazing! And so fun to take pics downtown. I'm from just north of LA and love it there. Not my favorite big city (Paris takes the cake!) but definitely love it! Looking forward to more outfit pictures there!
