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.
