Thrift Shopping

I haven’t actually blogged in forever. I know, it’s horrible – but I’ve been doing a lot of other good, productive things. Mostly I’m working on YouTube, and I’m loving it. I want to use this as my outlet for writing about fashion, and mentioning topics that are on my channel.

So this week I went thrift shopping. It was sort of a challenge for myself, I wanted to see if I could create cute outfits based off of thrifted pieces. I would consider it a success! The Goodwill I went to is amazing. It had so much stuff!

So here is what I ended up buying:

This blazer is a few sizes too big, and it had ridiculous shoulder pads, but I cut those out and am wearing it as an oversized, slouchy look with a romper.

The jumpsuit was thrifted, and I put it together with some clothes I already had to create a night out look. I felt very Miami.

This sweater is so comfortable! I threw it on with some skinny jeans and it looks way more expensive than the actual price.

This dress was only about $3, and it fits perfectly! I paired it with a shirt for a more grunge effect. I can’t wait to wear it in the summer too.

Hopefully this will inspire you to check out more thrift stores! Sometimes the best pieces are found there.

Burberry Fall 2012 Ready to Wear

I’ve been obsessively checking style.com, shopping online, (more like looking online) and reading magazines. Fall fashion is slowly creeping in, and devouring my helpless self. Of course for most people, it’s still all about summer, but I personally think it’s dull. Bring on the coats and boots! I love fall fashion. I especially love the new Burberry Prorsum fall collection. It is so classic, with the beautiful coats and patterns, yet there was something very new and fresh about the whole thing.

The bows on the waist of the coats were adorable. A very youthful, yet tasteful touch.

There was something in this collection that was my favorite, though. The shirts and sweaters with cute animals(mostly owls) on them did it for me.

What’s not to love?

Also, the men’s clothes were just superb. They were a little out there in some aspects, but pay attention guys, because this is the way to dress for cold weather. No question about it.
