Name Brand

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 8:30 AM

Sarah loves to mix brands and styles, so it makes sense that thrift shopping is one of her favorite hobbies.

(It also makes sense, with all the mix and matching, that when I asked my two Rhodes interns if they had any candidates for this section, they both suggested Sarah.)

Sarah says about half her closet — including these black ankle boots — is from Buffalo Exchange, a thrift store in her native Austin where people can buy, sell, and trade clothes.


But she also mixes what I call highs and lows, i.e. things from Target with designer pieces.

For this outfit, Sarah paired an eye-popping blue Madewell skirt with a Target blouse and accessorized with a studded clutch.

"I was so sad because they only sold this [clutch] at 'select Marc Jacobs stores,' but I found it on eBay! It's funny," she says, "because inside it has a tag that says Jacobs by Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Marc by Marc Jacobs. Longest name EVER!"

I haven't actually seen the inside of this fun clutch to verify that, but I'm already imagining my new byline.
