A Fitting Clutch

Hi, Delayed Missives readers! My name is Caitlin, and I blog over at Re-Mix-Her! Alex and I have been blogging friends since she was at her old Tumblr address (which, by the way, she continues to update, in case you’re interested).  I’m a recent college graduate and looking for a full-time job in editing and publishing. I’d definitely be classified as a book nerd, and I’d love to live in NYC someday, partly so I can go to all the blogger meet-ups Alex is constantly blogging about.  This is definitely what I would call a typical Caitlin outfit: stripes, army green and pretty brown and gold accessories. Of course, I thought it was only appropriate to include my envelope-inspired clutch in today’s post because of Alex’s blog theme.  H&M dress (last year) | Lauren Ralph Lauren Cardigan via garage sale | Banana Republic heels (old) | BCBG Clutch (gift) | H&M sunnies | H&M cuffs  Please feel free to visit me over at Re-Mix-Her, or follow me via Twitter and Facebook! And a BIG thank you to Alex for having me on her blog today!





Guest Post: Re-Mix-Her

Hi, Delayed Missives readers! I’m Caitlin from Re-Mix-Her, and I am so excited to be guest-posting on here today while Alex is gallivanting about in the Hamptons (lucky girl!)!

I am a Midwest girl currently living in Little Rock, Arkansas, for an internship, but I will be going home soon to my small town in Indiana to finish up my senior year at college. Because I am like so many undergrads shelling out the big bucks for a higher education, I have a limited budget. Luckily, though, I have a love for thrifting, going to garage sales, and finding any and all deals on clothes. Re-Mix-Her is all about affordable style and remixing what you already have in your closet.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater: Ann Taylor LOFT
Vest: Anthropologie
Jeans: Elle (Kohl’s)
Sandals: Elle (Kohl’s)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelets: TJ Maxx
Ring: Ann Taylor LOFT

I had my eye on this sweater all summer, and it finally went on sale a few weeks ago. I am such a sucker for sales, as I am a sucker for multi-functionalism when it comes to pieces of clothing … which is probably why I love this vest. I definitely wore this vest three times in the past week. Gross? Nope. That’s what I call a smart purchase. I finished off the outfit with my favorite bag and watch (which I bought from a man at a garage sale. Gross? Nope. That’s also what I call a smart purchase.).

Alex, have an amazing vacation! Everybody else, come say hi sometime at Re-Mix-Her or tweet me here! Who knows? Maybe my love of thrifting and multi-functionalism will rub off on you.
