I used to wear this to class in college all the time. I didn't think it was anything special, but a friend of my called it my Katherine Hepburn outfit. Since I do not mind being compared to any Hepburn, I went with it.
Pants are harder to find when thrifting. Although there are racks and racks of them, they tend to be 80's high waisted jeans. Also pants tend to bit more worn looking. However, if you are patient, you can find some great deals and unique styles. Ditto for shoes. Shoes and pants in this pix set me back $6.00.
Finding great vintage jewelry at a price you can afford is more of challenge. You have to search, search, search your favorite thrift stores display always checking it each time you visit. You need to put the word out that you love the stuff and you need check with your family. I get a lot of my jewelry at estate sales on the second day (half off!) However the above pieces were free! The watch and bracelet came from a friend's grandmother (no one in their family wanted it...can you believe that??) and the owl necklace came from my grandmother.
