"Safari Chic" meets "Greased Lighting"

Here at SHS our mission has been to explore the art of fashionable thrifting and vintage hunting. But we also love to mix all things thrift with a few things "new".

Tanya found this blousey, safari shirt at the vintage store, and I fell in love with the retro print the minute she popped it on.
The question was... how do we update this thing...?
The solution? Simple! Some modern, high-waisted pants, of course.
These new American Apparel Riding Pants served not only to update the tunic style drape, but also featured a high waist which is great for tying options...
 We left the length in the back, to create a "coat and tails" effect...
And added these Sam Edelman clogs and some rockin', 80's style hoops to polish it all off. 

So there you have it. A little "Grease" meets Safari chic. Oh, and yes, this top was on the $1 rack. Gotta love it!
