I went thrifting for crochet items this week and one of the items I found was this great creamy white crochet shawl. Today I’m wearing it as a wrap around dress, pinned shut with the great crochet flower pin I got from crocheTime and paired with a vintage crochet collar I picked up last summer in an antique store in Ohio. I don’t typically recommend wearing THIS much crochet at once but the light color and the thin outfit underneath make it work for me.

The Outfit

This shawl is fabulous and works well as a dress.  I want to know about these thrift stores you go to - the ones around here just have musty jeans and furniture :).

 @undergroundcrafter San Francisco absolutely celebrates thrifting and upcycling so there are tons of great stores around here. I went to The Mission neighborhood for this stuff but will also be making a trip soon to the more well-known Haight area. The downside is that with thrifting being so trendy the secondhand goodies are much more expensive here than in thrift stores I've visited in other cities.
