Citrus Punch

swapped dress

Hey thrifters! I've been raving about the orange shift dress I scored at my #OtherWomanSwap party a few weeks ago, and I finally got a chance to snap some photos. It was easily my favorite score from the event, in part because it adds a fun punch of color to my neutral-heavy wardrobe, and also cause it's so easy to dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. Plus, thanks to the swap, it was essentially free.

I most recently wore the dress to a recent weekend brunch, pairing it with my black wedges ($35, from TJMaxx) and a black belt ($6, NY&Co.). I added a gifted white bag and a black-and-white necklace (cost unknown) I've held on to since college. Head to toe, the whole look came out to $41.

#OtherWomanSwap Recap

otherwomanswap

Last weekend, I invited a gaggle of girlfriends over to my new digs for a clothing swap and movie night combo. We drank bellinis, munched on snacks and, best of all, were able to trade in plenty of our rarely- or never-worn duds for some new-to-us items--all without spending a penny. I ended up with a cute orange shift dress that I'm obsessed with (I've already worn it twice!), a sweater top, a cute necklace and a pair of Betsey Johnson sunglasses. 

Post-swap, we curled up on my bed sleepover-style to watch The Other Woman (download courtesy of Fox Digital HD!). Below are some photos from the evening, and a special thanks goes out to SnobSwap and Stella & Dot, who both gifted some amazing goodies to my guests!

Cool + Casual

vintage cutoffs

Morning thrifters! With all the craziness of last week's move, plus Friday's clothing swap party (recap will be up soon!), I haven't had much time to upload new photos recently. But now that I'm settled into my new apartment and have finally unpacked (most of!) my clothes, I've squeezed in some time to go back and post a few backlogged pics.

I had totally forgotten about this laid-back weekend look I put together on a hot, sticky Saturday in Manhattan. At the time, I was craving a break from being stuck inside packing, and luckily was able to round up a couple of girlfriends for some last minute cookies and milkshakes at Momofuku Milk Bar. Since it felt like a million degrees out, I decided to stick with a light blue-and-white striped button-up I found at Underground Thrift's Stuff-A-Sack sale for roughly $1.50.

I paired the casual top with some faded vintage cutoffs ($0.89, from Goodwill and also worn here), plus a gifted cream bag and my white jelly gladiators (last worn here), which I found for just $5 in the Cauz for Pawz bargain basement. I finished off the look with a pair of borrowed sunnies from Sunita V, and head to toe, the whole look came out to under $8.
