Hello Happy Friday!!! Snow hasn’t started on the east coast yet. As for me, I’m getting caught up on some sleep and TV shows I don’t have time to watch during the week!?!?. I did this look a couple weeks ago, I was like I love just adding accessories to a look making it completely different. The trend these days are to add a belt to a blazer, coat, sweater…and so on…I love belts I use to wear belts with anything back in the day. You know you have retired the look but you can bring it back……..until you get sick of the look once again!!!!!
I got this dress and blazer from a thrift store at first I was like not wanting to purchase these items. Than I realized that I had to get them and wear these pieces together.
Shopping for thrift items takes precision make sure:
1) The items are not damaged, ruined, faded (unless their denim such as boyfriend jeans, chambray top, vest, jacket, and etc….)
2) Make sure the quality of the item looks like you picked it off a department store rack
3) Pick items that work in your wardrobe and this item can be worn on repeat!!!
4) If the price is right definitely get this item.
Now thrift stores are the best if you purchase correctly you can get some really good steals. When I’m shopping anywhere I have to imagine it in my wardrobe or how it will work in my wardrobe. I have gotten better of not just buying items just to buy them.
What do you think about this look?
