Hello, friends, Happy Thursday!!! I am so stoked about today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme, I just can’t wait for you to see……..
Okay, story time: When I first saw the theme “Brilliant Blazers,” I was apprehensive at best, they’re just not really my thing, but I’m game for anything, and I thought it would be nice to find a blazer I like (but I doubted it would happen). Then, earlier this week, I had a pretty crap day at work, and I was running out of time to find an outfit, let alone take photos, edit and post; but, I decided to stop at the thrift store on the way home from work anyway. I grabbed a few blazers off the rack, still doubting I would like any of them, when I tried on this beauty – a tailored, black Isaac Mizrahi for Target blazer that fit like it was made for me. Just like that, I was sold!
I also found this super comfy, bright red-orange stripe top, and I happened to be wearing my favorite boyfriend jeans, and just like that, an outfit was born. I ran home, threw on some sandals and accessories, and I was ready to own that blazer like a boss! Haha no really, though, I never thought a blazer could feel so bad ass; now I get it. Thank you Thrift Style Thursday for showing me the error of my ways, I am officially a blazer convert!
I have to say, I think my two favorite things about Thrift Style Thursdays are seeing all of the amazing, creative, gorgeous, fun outfits all of these fantastic women come up with each week, and the fact that it challenges me to up my own style game! I love that each week is something totally different, and sometimes it coincides with my own tastes and preferences and sometimes it doesn’t, at first, but then I turn it into a game to see if I can make each theme work for me. I never would have thought I could pull off grunge, and I certainly didn’t think I would find a blazer I liked, let alone LOVED, for this week, but lo and behold, I did, and, if I may say so myself, I think I kinda rocked it! ;)
The details: black blazer (Isaac Mizrahi for Target, thrifted) // stripe shirt (14th and Union, thrifted) // light wash boyfriend jeans (American Eagle) // black wedge sandals (Charlotte Russe, old) // orange sunnies (Walmart) // black stud earrings (H&M) // bracelet (gift)
Now that I’ve professed my love for blazers, you have gotta go see how my Thrift Style Thursday gal-pals are stylin’ their own trail-blazing looks! And remember, go vote for our themes for the month of June over at Sheri’s “Gone Thrifting” page (and pick some good ones)!! ;)
