The Intentional thrifter: not so commonplace

I took a big bagful of stuff to the thrift store, but I also picked up three books and a top.

I think this wrap top is an awesome find. It's mostly lyocell, which is a nice-feeling fabric (and biodegradable). It's one of my favourite shades of purple. It has dolman sleeves, which don't show up so well here. It's even reversible.
Frontwards, which leaves the back sort of open and looks more like you've turned it backwards.
Backwards, with the bottom knotted.  Unknotted leaves it hanging a bit open, but that would be okay over a tank top.
Books to pack and read at the new place: Wendell Berry's The Art of the Commonplace, Mortimer J. Adler's The Great Ideas, and A Novelist's Commonplace Book, which is more of a mini-dictionary of writing terms, as defined by Michael Crawley.
