A few weeks ago I was asked to join a clothing swap by Lily of Love Charles Vintage to promote recycling clothes and to showcase that you can find high quality, beautiful clothing secondhand. Thrift stores like Goodwill, Salvation Army, Savers, etc. are the perfect places to find pretty basics. Whenever I need a cozy sweater I know that I can find a gently used Old Navy or Gap one there for far less than at the mall. The first item of the swap I'm going to share with you is one of those pieces and its my ideal basic top. I'm a stripe lover to the extreme (I counted 14 striped tops out of about 20 when I was organizing my closet the other night). Black and tan are quite versatile so I styled the top with a statement piece, where the neutral colors and simple pattern would let it shine.
