Shirt, American Eagle (thrifted). Skirt, American Eagle (dyed from khaki to light blue). Shoes, Lela Rose for Payless. Hat, Charlotte Russe. Owl brooch (on hat), thrifted. Cuff, Urban Outfitters. Belt, thrifted.
Not only are the clothes surprisingly preppy, but they’ve lasted a long time. The shirt was thrifted and I’ve worn it multiple times. The skirt was purchased in 2000. My other AE items are also going strong: wedge loafers from Fall 2008 (AE for Payless*) and a corduroy blazer that I don’t even remember buying.
I’ve gotten a lot more use out of a teeny bopper brand than I would have expected!

*Edited on 6/5 to address the identification of the wedge loafers as "AE for Payless." The Payless American Eagle brand has no affiliation with American Eagle Outfitters. I was fooled!
