One of my goals this year is to add more thrifted/rescued pieces to my wardrobe.
Three years ago I realized that I wasn’t making the best choices when I shopped second hand. As a rule, much of what I was buying would end up right back at the thrift store.
So I took some time off from shopping second hand so that I could get crystal clear about my style and also establish some ground rules before making any more purchases.
Basically, I decided that I will ONLY purchase items that I would be willing to pay full retail for and pieces that I would actually wear regularly in real life.
These are also the rules that I currently live by when it comes to choosing items that I sew.
The pieces in today’s outfit post definitely embody and embrace my current ideals.
In today’s post, I am wearing a fun self drafted green satin half circle skirt paired with a thrifted black high neck cropped rabbit angora sweater.
Although a little fancy, I think this piece is very versatile. It can be dressed up or down with just a simple change of top, shoes and accessories.
I accesorized the outfit with:
- A black and gold accented clutch
- Black suede/Calf-hair leopard print pumps
- Gold Statement Earring & Necklace Set and stacked thin gold bangle bracelets.
