Safari Chic- Gazelle

The gazelle... Its a form of antelope... did you know that?! I chose it because it is the shortest of the versions of antelope and super fast. According to the all knowing Wikipedia, it can reach speeds of 60mph.
I centered this outfit around the bag which was a gift from my mom. Now that I'm into animal print, I can really appreciate it because at first I didn't know what to do with it. I just bought this khaki skirt to replace another skirt that doesn't quite fit the way it used to. I don't know if it lost its shape or I'm just tired of wearing it, but its getting donated soon. I got this shirt because I love the way it feels against my skin. It feels like air (if air were made of fabric). I find that I'm thrifting a lot of shirts with this quality...big... flowing... soft... and in most cases, pastel.
The necklace is a gift from an old co-worker who brought it back after visiting with his family in Egypt. I really like it but haven't worn it in the three years that I've had it. I promise to wear it now that I'm trying all these new things. I bought the belt back in the Jurassic era from Target... seriously, I've had this belt since high school.
And these are my very first pair of thrifted shoes (along with a pair of Seychelles pumps). I got them from Plato's Closet for about eight bucks. I was terrified of thrifted shoes, but I sprayed them over and over with Lysol, and they were barely used. The Ross tag was still on the bottom, and they're actually very comfortable!


  1. Ha! Thrifted shoes make me wary, too! I've only bought two, and one I wear with socks and the other was brand new with the original tags still on them! Spray hand sanitizer helps, too!

    1. ps Thanks again for the heads up on Thrift Store Runway! I submitted a few photos this morning!

    2. Yay!!! I'm glad you posted some looks! I think it's a great way to get people into buying second hand. I think they're doing the competition every month for the rest of the year.

  2. Lovely outfit, very nice and chic.
    cute, cute, cute shoes!
