I consider this thrifting trip to be quite successful however as always some things are better left on the hanger or for another body shape. I was excited for a couple pieces that I do not feel were all that flattering which is completely okay, you don’t have to win them all! I styled up a select few pieces from this haul quickly to show them off but I’ve gone into more detail below as to which are yay’s or nay’s!

The Yay’s
Taupe Joe Fresh Skirt ($3.50)
Blush Forever 21 Dress ($6.50)
Pink Dynamite Blazer ($5.00)
Ivory Calvin Klein blouse ($4.50)
Peach Forever 21 top ($3.00)
Grey Emma & Michelle dress ($10.00)

Black, White and Gold

Black, White & GoldI like to refer to this look as “edgy meets high fashion”! I will admit this outfit didn’t come all that easily as it was probably the tenth outfit I attempted to assemble that morning! Things don’t always fall into place but I am exceptionally thrilled with how this look turned out in the end. Due to my 5’2 stature I did need to do some hemming to this maxi skirt before I could wear it. Tall girls need things longer, short girls need things shorter. Sigh!


Gold Coin Necklace
I was unsure for probably two weeks about what would work with this skirt due to it’s black and white pinstripe. I originally thought a bright coloured blouse or shirt but none of those were quite right. I then decided to paw through my tops one by one and found this black one with gold dots. Although the dots are subtle I think it is a very cute mix of patterns.


American Eagle Low Heel Wedges I thrifted these fabulous American Eagle Outfitters low heel wedge pumps last week in the children’s section of Value Village – only $3.99! As depressing as it is for me to sift through the sparkles and Hannah Montana sandals, occasionally I do find the perfect gems such as these and of course my favourite gemstone toe flats by GAP Kids. Oh and yes I did notice that the sole of these shoes match the skirt perfectly but it certainly was not planned!

Willow & Clay

Willow & Clay This sleeveless knit overtopper/vest by Willow & Clay came into the store last week and normally I wouldn’t have looked twice at it but there was something about how soft and detailed it was that pulled me in. Beautifully designed and exceptionally unique. Although I’m not crazy about how short Streetwear Society makes their skirts, I did fall in love with this lace one a week or so ago and this is my first time wearing it out. I wanted a simple yet stylish look today, so I downplayed my usual bright colours and opted for the less-is-more outlook. The blouse is by Smart Set, a slightly deeper shade of ivory paired with a rich caramel brown belt and matching necklaces. And for a dash of fun I chose my fleshtone sparkle flats!
