March is a hard month for us Canadians. Christmas is over, Valentine’s Day is over and the month is thirty-one LONG days long. It seems like it should be spring, but reality is that we still have a ton of snow and frigid temperatures. Add insult to injury, the last week is usually “spring” break. Sigh… In light of this, back in 2014 I decided to make my own fun in March by declaring it Pinspired March, and taking the month to use thrifted pieces to recreate Pinterest outfits. I had so much fun, I did it again in 2015 and 2016 and now it’s not only a tradition that *must* continue, it’s known as The Most Wonderful Time of the Year amongst my kind readers! I kicked Pinspired March 4.0 today with an Anthropologie piece that happens to be my very first eBay purchase!
I have been wanting this Seraphina blouse from Anthro since it was in stores a few years ago. I waited for a sale and when it finally did go on sale, it was sold out before I could purchase. I watched on eBay but the price was always redic. This was still priced high at $50 but I bought it anyway as a birthday gift to myself! I LOOOOOVVVEEE the colours! So much so I got my nails done to match!
The blouse ended up costing me closer to $80 with shipping and the dollar exchange, still far less than the $180USD original price tag, if I recall correctly. Now, my *pinspiration* came directly from the Anthro website, hence the shorts!!
I, er, obviously couldn’t wear this to work so I quickly changed…
If you’re interested in following along with my Pinspired March adventures, let me tell you straight up, I don’t post everything on Facebook or here on the blog – if you don’t want to miss a moment of Pinspired March 4.0, you need to follow along on Instagram… and you probably should because in addition to excellent thrifted fashion, I will be demonstrating VSP (Very Serious Posing).
