Thrifting Haul: Feb 2015

My first thrifting haul of the new year.

I got 6 pieces of clothing and accessories that will definitely add some value to my wardrobe.

As usual my thrifting haul total was in and around $50.

Which seems to be the standard price for 2 big bags full!

Styling: Rolling Stone Tee

“Don’t take life too seriously and always remember it is just a passing fad”

-Mick Jagger

All my managers have always said I come to work looking polished.

So let me show you how I get away with wearing a tee to work;

by sprucing up my favourite Rolling Stone Tee for a business casual work environment!

Styling: H&M Polka Dot Sleeveless Blouse

I almost didn’t buy my H&M sleeveless top considering I am a little self-conscious about my arms.

But it was only $15, and my man gently reminded me how many ways I could style it for only $15 dollars.

He was right-

I may not have been excited about the piece,

but it was definitely an investment piece!

Fashion Flashback: August Favs

Well it’s about that time for my favourites outfits during the past month.

Outfit 1

IMG_20140829_093640[1]

[ Goodwill top, RW.CO blue skinny pants, Gold Tassle Necklace from Jewels of Yours, Nine West Pointed black heel, and a beige blazer unknown ]

I remember getting ready for this day, and not feeling too hot.

Those days when nothing makes you feel like you look good.

So I just wanted to throw on a pair of pants and a blazer. But I also wanted to style my gold tassel necklace right. I needed to do this necklace c/o of Jewels of Yours justice with a well styled look; I did this with a low cut shirt. And that’s how this look came together. I got a lot of positive feedback of this outfit on instagram. Just goes to show you that how you feel may not necessarily reconcile with how people see you!

Always thankful for the love I get from my followers!! 🙂

 Outfit 2

IMG_20140821_102156[1]

[ Goodwill top, skirt, and heels that are nine west. Styled with a chunky pearl and jewel necklace ]

I choose this outfit because I am proud of it!

This was the only new article of clothing I got this month. It was part of my “make it your own thrift post.”

You can check out the before and after here:

Outfit 3

IMG_20140808_093737[1]

[ H&M checkered dress layered with a star wars tee, H&M b&W belt and my chunk pearl-jewel necklace. lastly my goodwill booties and American Eagle shades ]

I just adore this outfit. It is funky, and cute.

Plus you can totally see how stoked I am to be wearing it and that it is a friday!

Just because it screams fun. This outfit made my list.

Outfit 4

IMG_20140828_093627[1]

[ Agate Necklace from Jewels of Yours, Naked Zebra red top, Goodwill dress pant, H&M white belt, and Goodwill Ninewest Peeptoe Heels ]

Usually when I wear dress pants especially wide legged ones, I feel stuffy.

But paired with my relaxed red tank and my Agate Necklace.

It added more attitude to a rather conservative look.

Which is your favourite?!

Thrifty Thursday part 1

PicsArt_1408022467421[1]

Have you ever gone into a retail store catered to work attire?

Once you shift through the sea of mostly black items… you find a piece you like.

And experience a little tag shock.

The price of one work outfit, can usually buy me two casual day outfits.

That’s why I’ve taken to buying work attire either at retail stores that have a work attire section

(often the prices aren’t as expensive in specialized shops)

or I make a trip to my favourite goodwill location 🙂

My best find ever was a pant suit with the tags still on it.

Originally priced at $150.00 plus tax.

I paid $50 – the most I’ve ever spent on a thrift store item.

But my man wouldn’t let me pass on the deal…luckily!

It was a Calvin Klein pant suit never been worn at a third of the price.

Here’s the suit.

I paired it with a thrifted bold blue guess shirt $3.00

Tres-sexy.

For my shoes i choose: my open-toed nine west heels $7.00.

Lastly to complete the look- I added my gothy-black necklace $12.00

The jewellery can sometimes be overpriced.

But i couldn’t leave it behind

All together this professional thrifted look cost me $72.00 

Compared to what it would cost new:

The suit cost: $150

Guess shirts average between $40-60 ..Check it out Here.

costume jewellery cost average between 25-50 in retail stores roughly.

Nine West Peep Toe Heels: 110-125…Check it out here

So let’s be on the conservative side…totalling: $325

That’s a total savings of $253.

Well Damn.

I didn’t even think I saved that much until I just priced it out…

If you aren’t completely convinced.

July Favourites

Another Month has come and gone.

I hadn’t done any shopping in such a long time with so many recent large purchases in our household.

As such I’ve had to get very creative not to repeat any outfits.

I’m not going to lie- its getting more and more difficult.

A couple times this month I’ve left the house in an outfit I just wasn’t quite happy with.

I guess it was a hit and miss month.

Cause I absolutely adore these July fits.

PicsArt_1404134786640[1]

Can I just say this whole outfit minus the belt and tights are from goodwill. #mindblown

I picked this skirt up in June. I absolutely adore it. It gives my work fits a baby doll feel.

PicsArt_1404998353139[1]

This outfit has my favourite colour combination purple and blue.

Paired with the low bun and curls- I feel like it has a spanish feel.

Especially with the curvy silhouette showcased.

I felt sexy in this outfit!

PicsArt_1405604267756[1]

Professional, cute, and girly- the perfect work fit!

The long curls with the lace and flirty skirt- all scream very girly.

The cherry on top is the peep toe heel.

Which is your favourite?
