Thrifting haul: October 2021

I had the itch to go thrift shopping sporadically last weekend. So I asked if the fam-jam wanted to come and we all hoped in the truck for the last few hours before closing at value village.

While there I thought of the game “chelseaasoflate” plays on her instagram: thrift and pass. I played this with everyone following on my instagram stories. It was a very fun interactive way to shop!

I decided this time to style the outfits I had in mind when I bought the clothes. So people reading my blog get a sneak peak before pictures are on my instagram profile!

First up is this Pant and Collar shirt combo. What’s funny is the the top was part of my thrift or pass stories and majority of people (69%) said pass on this top.

But I loved it, the top gives me tomboy/queer vibes in all the best ways. And paired with the bottoms it’s just a fun and relaxed look.

What do you think… were people just not seeing my vision?

I really lucked out with this Tuxedo coat from zara. This is something that I will wear all the time. I usually gravitate towards colour when searching through the racks or good fabric. That’s the reason you have to take it slow and steady while thrifting or else you can pass right by a gem. This item was a grey muted colour and slouchy looking hanging on the rack, but it’s a really classy-relaxed fit on.

Two of the items in this outfit are thrifted: the stripped flowy top and the jacket. I have been loving oversized clothing lately. Before I used to shy away from anything that didn’t show my shape because it made me look bigger. At this point in my life.. I really could care less. Thick and proud.

I also found this guess jacket for $30 in great condition. While trying this on, a lady stopped and took the time to tell me “nice.” Not sure if it was a nice find or it looks good… but I’ll take both or either. This shopping trip really was the day for jackets.

I also found two blouses and a pink blazer. But I think I’m going to do an outfit post inspired by legally blonde because it definitely gives me that hot pink vibes. So stay tuned!

Styling my latest thrifting haul

It seems like the only shopping I do lately is thrift shopping. The clothes just have more personality and you get way more bang for your buck.

I thought I would compile all my latest photos where I used my newest purchases.

This cozy top above, I knew I would get alot of wear out of. Its something I would wear just chilling around the house and something cute enough to style up!

I have been living in this green street wear top. Its perfect for pandemic-styling lately, because it seems everyone is living in lounge wear and matching sets!

My favourite purchase was this oversized brown trench coat. I needed a new winter coat, and I haven’t had one at this length before. It definitely keeps me cozy warm and stylish!

I get super excited when I see loud prints when I’m thrifting. This dress stood out amongst the racks of other dresses with a loud pop of colour. It feels like a cross between Minnie Mouse and Mrs. Maisel vibes. I have a stylish 50s hat, and some gloves that could really sell the Mrs. Maisel look!

I usually don’t like preppy clothes, but this little number of a dress was adorable. I loved the built in band around the waist to accentuate the smallest part of the body. I was scared that my hips wouldn’t fit since the shape was very rectangle. But YAY I could squeeze into it!!

There are a few pieces I have yet to style. You can see everything I bought in the video below.. Three shirts in particular that I bought for work. If you would like to see me style and post some work outfit inspo… let me know with a like and comment! šŸ„°

Thanks for stopping by!

Styling Tips: Mixing High and Low Items Part 2

I wanted a sleeveless grey maxi dress for a awhile now.

I have seen this dress styled in so many ways, I knew I had to add it to my wardrobe. It would serve my mood-styling very well. Today I feel classy (grey maxi), today I feel bad ass (grey maxi), today i feel like… just throwing something on …(grey maxi).

It just works on so many levels.

Jumpsuit styled for work

I initially bought this Target Jumpsuit for a Christmas Work Party.

But I also wanted to style it for the everyday.

IĀ figured a Jumpsuit can be a chic alternative to the pant suit.
