Lise pointed this random truck out to me-- I must meet the owner!

Blazer, Trousers, clutch, and loafers- Vintage (via La Petite Marmoset), Bustier- Kim Kardashian for Sears (and purchased in Nebraska no less, who knew?)
Story behind this bustier: This summer, I flew out to Lincoln, Nebraska for a wedding. Upon arrival at the Econo Lodge (3 stars, I might add), I soon realized that I had forgotten to pack underwear (never thought I would be typing this sentence). Where to buy panties in a pinch out in the middle of nowhere? Sears of course! The last time I visited Sears to buy clothing, I was 10 and back to school shopping for turtlenecks with my mom, so I was skeptical as to what I would find--- I wasn't aware that the designer + bargain retailer collab fever that has made Target successful had also spread to the store where my grandma compares washing machines. I was greeted by a ginormous poster of the Kardashians, diva wind and all, floating over a sprawling section of their namesake bodycon dresses, billowing blouses and chunky accessories.
Here's where my snobbery ends. The stuff was actually kinda cute. I tried to look away but Chloe drew me in with her gaze. Gahh! Aside from polka dot boy bottoms, I picked up an elegant gold collar necklace and this bustier. When I got to the cashier, she looked down at my purchases, smiled warmly at me and asked if I was a big fan of Kim. Okay lady, I know what this looks like, but I promise i'm not buying because of your marketing scheme, I just really liked this stuff and I forgot my pantaloons! Not wanting to offend her I replied in the affirmative. She asked if I wanted to keep the plastic Kardashians hanger since I liked them so much. This lady probably thinks I have a shrine or something.
In the end, I loved my purchases, although that night I had a dream about Kris Jenner rolling around in a big mound of cash. :\
