As March draws to a close, so too does the Pick 5 fashion challenge my friend and I came up with a few weeks ago. In this challenge, each of us picked five items and pledged to wear them every week until the end of the month.
And you know what? I'm SO GLAD it's over.

I get so excited for these 49-cent Mondays at my local Salvation Army that it kinda bums me out when I don't find 9 zillion flawless amazing treasures. I gotta relax my expectations a little bit, I think. Nevertheless, this trip to the thrift still yielded a few good buys.

I wanted to share a little bit about the story behind the name "Bread and Roses Vintage." It's something that means a lot to me, so I hope you'll take a minute to read about it:
|Strikers in the Lawrence, Mass., "Bread and Roses" strike, from the Walter P. Reuther Library|
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lofts gray,
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses,
For the people hear us singing: "Bread and roses! Bread and roses!"

Inevitably, I start off a week of vacation with a to-do list that's 9,000 miles long and completely unrealistic.
