Purple + Polka Dots

IMG_4547.JPG

For some reason, I get the urge to pull all the faux leather out of my closet once fall hits (i.e. Monday's post), including this purple skirt I scored at a small East Village boutique last year. Since the boutique happened to be having a moving sale when I stopped by, I snagged this baby--originally priced at $72--for just $20.

For a work look earlier this week, I paired the skirt (also worn here!) with a sheer polka-dotted button-up found at Underground Thrift Store's Stuff A Sack sale for what boiled down to $1.50. To make it work appropriate, obviously, I added a black tank (cost unknown), then polished off the look with a shiny black belt ($6, NY&Co.) and some black pumps ($25, Rena Reborn). With my $6 sunnies and $5 bag, the whole head-to-toe look came out just around $58.

Last Call

Despite the fact that it's almost October, we got to enjoy one last stretch of summer weather this weekend before last call. I took full advantage of the 80-degree temps, making sure to round up a few girlfriends (and Koko, natch!) for an outdoor brunch on the Upper East Side on Saturday.

I opted to rock a comfy tie-dye skirt, purchased from a friend during her closet clean-out sale for just $2, and paired it with a $10 faux-leather top from a small East Village boutique (also worn here). I added some gifted sunnies, which a friend scored while visiting London's Brick Lane, and finished off the look with my black Zara pumps ($25, from Rena Reborn). With my $5 black bag, the whole head-to-toe look came out to just $42.

Gold Trim

Hey thrifters! Sorry for the radio silence. I've been under the weather lately, so haven't been able to do too much blog-wise. Hoping I'll be back to 100% by the weekend.

I snapped a few pics of this fall outfit from last week, featuring a cozy black sweater I purchased from my friend's closet clean-out for just $3. I added a pair of comfy jeans, snagged at a Texas thrift shop for just $7, and a $7 basic button-up from TJ Maxx.

Since the look is pretty simple, I spiced things up with a pair of gold loafers from Old Navy ($20, with an extra 30% off code) and a gold Baublebar necklace (gifted). Head to toe, everything came out to $37.
