Feeling Thrifty

 Top: Aritzia: Skirt: Thrifted, Blazer: H&M (old), Shoes: Zara (old), Accessories: La Mer x Target leopard wrap watch, Alisa Michelle, Alexis Bittar and vintage bracelets, CatbirdNYC rings

This skirt is one of those thrifted finds that you wonder where you may wear it to....but it's also such a cool find that you don't want to pass it up. I nabbed this skirt a while back but haven't had an opportunity to wear it. It's a bit too fancy (even for me) to wear to my place of work and too busy for me to wear on the weekend when I don't have anything particularly special going on besides errands (or out of town trips where the summer weather is actually summer weather). I finally decided to put it on for the heck of it. I really love the dark color palette, the stripes and the slight bell shape from the tulle underneath. It's not a skirt I thought I would want but I'm glad I do.

  21. Very pretty find at a thrift shop. You have such a craft into making everything you wear so chic!

    I bought this velvet burnt out dress from a thrift store last year based on the influence of the store clerk. It had puffy sleeves and totally not my style. I have not idea why I bought it. Then I realized I hated the dress so I had the sleeves removed to make it a loose shift dress...I still hate it. I have no idea where to use it since it's velvet. I may just need to use it for no reason too.

  23. Okay, I LOVE this skirt! And I love the way you've styled it, too. A statement piece like this can either go very wrong or very right, and I love how you've made your whole ensemble a bit more minimal with the black blazer and heels!
