Boyish Charm

thrifting blog

Hey guys! It's been a busy week, and I haven't had a whole lotta time to get creative with my closet. So when there isn't time to put together carefully curated outfits, I go for a classic combo, like this basic button-up and a boyish blazer.

I scored this vintage blazer (also worn here!) for what boiled down to just $0.55 at a Housing Works Buy The Bag sale, pairing it with an old ivory button-up (cost unknown, Forever 21) for a morning walk with Koko earlier this week. And as you can probably tell from my hair in these photos, it was pretty windy out, so I kept the chill away with my vintage camel coat ($20, Salvation Army Coat Sale).

I finished off the look with a pair of basic jeans (free, from a friend's clothing swap), a pair of black Dorothy Perkins boots ($45) and some $6 street vendor sunnies. Head to toe, the whole look came out to less than $72.

Pastel Palette

When the holidays are over, it feels like spring should be right around the corner. But joke's on you, cause it's totally not. I got tired of waiting for spring over the weekend though, and decided to break one of my fave pastel pieces--a thrifted-and-gifted blush dress from Sunita V.--out early this year.

Since it's still wayyy too cold to be rocking this dress all by itself (like I did way back when!), I layered a thrifted cream sweater ($2 from Sun Thrift Shop) over it, and then topped it off with my gray coat ($20, Salvation Army Coat Sale).

I glammed up the look with a gorgeous Eugenia Kim hat (another fab gift from Sunita!) and a silver necklace ($4, from a friend's closet clean-out sale). With my gifted black leather bag and thrifted black booties ($6, Housing Works Tribeca), the whole thing came out to just $32.

Winter Tan

I seem to be on some kind of neutrals kick, as evidenced by all these black and white and gray outfits I've been rocking lately. I'm not 100% sure why, but my guess is I've been subconsciously inspired by some of the neutral but oh-so-luxe looks I've been stumbling across on Pinterest. No matter the reason, if it ain't broke don't fix it right? So I kept things neutral again earlier this week with this work-ready tan dress, originally from Banana Republic, which I scored for free at a friend's clothing swap.

Since it's still super cold out, I added some long sleeves to the mix with a sheer button-up blouse (Forever 21, cost unknown) and a super-plush faux fur vest ($10, from a Salvation Army Coat Sale).

I finished off the look with a simple black belt ($6, NY&Co.) and a pair of Dorothy Perkins boots ($45). With a pair of $6 sunnies, the whole ensemble came out to $67.
