BELTANE to MEMORIAL DAY countdown: Chanel on a Thrift Store Budget

Although I have found a lot of great new tanks in recent weeks, this countdown is inspiring me to revisit past tanks that I haven't seen since last September, and pretty much forgot existed. If not for the joy of seasonally hiding my clothes on myself, I might take my clothes for granted. But instead, I get more mileage out of my deals, and am able to rediscover magical little moments of genius like this, my #14 TOP TANK TOP, a black rayon tank with spaced white pearl beads.

This tank has what I like to call the "Chanel Factor", in that it is about the closest thing to Chanel that you can ever hope to get on a thrift store budget. Black and white will always suggest Chanel, but in this case, the pearl beads, perfectly spaced, is twist-on-a-classic touch that really nails it. I am very pumped to have it back in the lineup.

The only drawback being, the beads make it a bitch to iron. But it's a small price to pay.
