INSTANT OUTFIT: Wing Tip Shoes

Now I know that while in New York you should be shopping at all the hot-spots and hitting up the trail of boutiques that line the streets, but I was a girl on a budget. Besides, I was there to see clothes - not to buy clothes...

...But I couldn't resist the lure of a thrift store. Especially when that thrift store was right around the corner from my hotel. I went in with low expectations. In the past, I have journeyed into NYC thrift stores with high hopes, and then departed unsatisfied.

To my surprise, I found bundles! So much stuff that I had to make final cuts to stay within the boundaries of the wallet.

The #1 find of the day? Wing Tip Shoes!

Wing tip shoes seem to be popping up everywhere and they are great if you are into the androgynous look, but they can be very feminine as well. With this in mind, Instant Outfit explores...

So curious! Which thrift store were you around the corner from? I'm in NYC and I'm putting together a thrift store crawl for my friends.

The thrift store was a Salvation Army on 8th Ave and 20th Street!

I always had excellent luck myself at Salvation Army's in NYC. Can I ask you - Where did the orange bag with the appliques come from (in instant outfit pics)?
