While some might prefer to go full-on body-con with a party outfit, I'll occasionally go for a more cozy, covered up look, especially when I know I'll be eating and drinking a lot. This mega-oversized red and gold-trimmed sweater, which I scored at Cure Thrift Shop for $6 during an end-of-season sale, fits the bill perfectly.
It's been a while since I've worn this black and white Cynthia Rowley blazer, and I'm kind of surprised I don't wear it more often--it's cute, comfy, and easy to dress up or down. I snagged this beauty at a Goodwill for $15, which is more than I'd typically spend on a blazer there, but since it fit like a glove AND was brand new with tags, I made an exception.
I dressed the blazer down by pairing it with a denim button-up (just $0, from a clothing swap!) and some simple black pants ($20, from a local NYC boutique), and finished it all off with my fave $10 hat (purchased at a small shop in Queens).
Adding in my $35 Dorothy Perkins boots (yes, yet another pair. I'm obsessed with their shoe selection!) and a pair of $6 sunnies, the whole head to toe look came out to $76.
Yeah, florals are usually a spring thing, but I love me a dark floral pattern in the wintertime. When I scored this vintage, navy blue-hued floral top from a friend's clothing swap a couple weeks ago, I knew it was perfect for some winter wear this season.
I pulled the top out for the first time on Saturday while running errands in Union Square, pairing it with some dark gray jeans (another free clothing swap find), and my pointy-toed Dorothy Parker ankle boots ($45), which I've been wearing the hell out of lately.
I topped off the look with a navy sweater ($5, Housing Works Gramercy) and a $20 gray coat (also worn here and here!), which I scored at October's Salvation Army Coat Sale, as well as my new $7 hat, a recent Ebay find. With my secondhand $5 bag and $6 sunnies, the whole head to toe look came out to $88.
