It’s a good thing I have a love for vintage (70’s, 80’s 90’s) because since I have minimal funds for new clothes, I always seem to find the most amazing pieces in vintage thrift and second hand shops. If you are going to go thrifting, I suggest you study the latest trends and go with an open mind and a lot of patience. Keep your current wardrobe in consideration and when you spot something, imagine how you will work it into your wardrobe. Friday, I went to a thrift store and found THE MOST amazing faux fur coat ($30), two blazers ($12 each) and a blouse ($5) for work. The blouse, pictured below, has shoulder pads and I bought it specifically to get that “power shoulder” which seems to be a hot trend as of late. The sequin jacket was a vintage find from a few months ago. I love it so much! I bought it oversized so it would have a slouchy look and it’s probably from some Grannies sequin holiday outfit circa 1987. I really see no reason in spending over $200 on such a trendy item when I can skillfully search a second hand shop and find this one for ….. wait for it …… um ….$10.00!! Also below is one of my favorite rings I discovered a few months ago as well. It’s a 24k gold butterfly with cubic zirconia stones ($40).
