Today's outfit is brought to you by the ever-amazing Nic from Salvage & Stone. I was really excited when she contacted me because her store fits hand in hand with what my blog is about: taking the at-first-glance kind of ugly, and making it beautiful. Thrifting is my jam and I tend to snap up a lot of pieces that, at first, seem questionable. Very questionable. Like, my mom pinching the bridge of her nose, questionable. But I find ways to either alter them or style them so that they look fresh and young and like I dropped more than $2 for them (muahaha). Salvage & Stone does the same thing, but with accessories. Nic explains:
"My line is based on the re-use of discarded materials. Everything is created from recycled items, from the headbands which are made from salvaged fabrics, and even down to our hang tags, which are made from canvas scraps leftover from my paintings. I see it as a way of creating something new and beautiful that someone is truly going to love, while at the same time reducing waste and doing my small part to help keep our planet healthy."
We live in a time where items are easily disposable, so it's refreshing to find business owners that make it their purpose to be more conscientious, and end up creating something beautiful along the way.
My headband is a white and floral number, and when I first got it I knew I wanted to kind of look like the WWII gals from Land Girls. Something about the fabric just made me instantly think of their chambray shirts and khaki overalls. So I went for the next best thing and made an all-denim ensemble, letting the headband do all the talking.
And now I want to wear this outfit all day, every day.
And here are some of my favorite jewelry and headband picks from Salvage & Stone. If you like headwraps, you might as well get it from a planet-friendly boutique rather than a huge, mainstream store :)
