Vintage Burberry

First, let me just say thank you so much for all the comments and positive feedback regarding Best Form of Flattery!  Remember, the link will be open until Sunday so you still have time to link-up if you want; also, the inspiration photo for next week is up, check it out here.
Vintage Burberry skirt - FC ($35)
F21 tunic - FC ($6.50)
Express boyfriend cardi - FC ($7.50)
Vintage Dex boots - FC ($24)
Vintage LV speedy - gifted by Mom
Personal pendant, gift - BF's grandma; chain bracelet, FC

About my outfit:  I'm sorry if you guys are getting sick of seeing these boots but they just match everything!  I guess red is the new neutral, right?  Anyway, this skirt is one of the most amazing pieces I've been able to find while working at a consignment store.  It is an authentic, vintage (size 8!) Burberry skirt!  I kept the outfit pretty simple, since the skirt makes such a statement on its own.  The color palette is classic, something I've apparently been loving recently.  I left the accessories minimal (just a couple of personal pieces and my preppy chain-link bracelet) and kept the whole look "high-end" with my Mom's old Louis.


Now, I know all my readers love to thrift, so tell me:
Which item of yours was your best thrifted find?

I love this look. It all looks so high end and expensive but you got it all at really reasonable prices!

LOVE this Burberry skirt! What a fantastic find. The boots are the perfect match with the skirt. Good call on keeping the rest of the outfit simple to let the skirt shine!

I love that skirt. Its gorgeous.

My best thrifting find was a French Connection sweater for $20. Its a smidge too short, but I just wear it with high-waisted skirts.

$35 for vintage Burberry?! Amazing!!! You look beautiful- I don't mind if you wear those red boots everyday- I love them! My best thrift find was prob a BGBC grey blazer for $5!
