Luxe + Ladylike

thrift fashion blog

Morning! If you caught my latest video lookbook, you probably saw this look, featuring a gifted blue and black dress from Forever21 (last worn here). This dress is one of my weekday go-tos, since the style is pretty much perfect for both the office and any post-work extracurriculars.

I styled the dress with some luxe layers, starting with a sheer, polka-dotted Zara top ($1.50) scored from Underground Thrift's Stuff A Sack sale and a silver belt ($6, NY&Co). I topped the whole look off with my gray cashmere and wool blend coat ($20, Salvation Army Coat Sale), and a pair of Calvin Klein ankle boots (last worn here!), snagged for just $5 during a sale at Housing Works Tribeca. With some $6 street vendor sunnies, the whole work-friendly ensemble came out to under $39.
