All Eyes on the Shoes!

We've all heard of the iconic little black dress, with the flattering fit that "goes-with-everything"and about how technically speaking your wardrobe is rather incomplete until you find the perfect one. 

Truth be told the same can be said for the perfect pair of little black sneakers...
Suede Sneakers // $3.99
Thrifted from: Talize

Stylish, comfortable, chic.. & yes, they goes with almost anything!

I swooned over these super cute suede shoes and I am totally diggin' the gold eyelets which add just the right amount of pizzazz. 

Quick and easy these new sneakers will definitely be my go-to shoe... just as soon as all this snow disappears!

Hope you are all having a beautiful weekend ~ much love

Bon Voyage!

Today my mom boards her flight bound for the sunny and sandy beaches of Holguin, Cuba & I wish more than anything that I was tagging along with her!
Although I can't be there in person I will at least be there in spirit, thanks to the goodies I thrifted for her to take away with her on her vacation!

   Assorted Scarves // $1.99 - 4.99   Sun hat // not thrifted   Vintage clutch // $3.99   Beach Bag // $3.00

Oversized scarves in bright punches of colour are easy to pack and very versatile making them a travel essential. Scarves can easily go from day to night - serving as a fun bathing suit cover-up or a tube top during the day and thrown over a cute dress to jazz up an evening out! 

Suitcase -check! Carry-on -check! Beach bag -check! Evening purses -check!
Bags to cover all the bases...

Extra large sun hat for much-needed protection & because hats that make you feel like a movie star incognito are necessary too!

Wishing my mum, grandma & everyone else lucky enough to escape the chilly weather lots of sunshine and safe travels! 

Thrift Tip: Always remeber to make thrift shops your number one stops when searching for out-of-season items!

New Year, New Gear!

I seriously debated purchasing this shirt since the pattern wasn't something that I instantly loved and I had major doubts about whether I would actually end up ever wearing it... Low and behold it has become a major staple in my wardrobe - I love the fit, the feel, the length, the pockets and yes, even though funny flowers are growing on me!
Thrift tip to remember: Leave your doubts at the door!

 Thrift store items are often so affordable that even if you can't decide in the aisle how you'd style something, pick it up anyway. Embrace the funkiness and let practicality be an afterthought ~ 
Silk Blouse // $5.99
Thrifted from: Value Village

Simply swooned over these super soft and incredibly chic gloves! Only $1.99!
Thrifted from: Talize

 Short sleeve sweater // $4.99
Thrifted from: Value Village

 It's hard to capture how truly beautiful this blazer is with so few photos (so sorry) but I allow me to  show off the best feature - the fabric! Black wool woven with shiny black and silver tread, this is my kind of tweed! This was one of those "cha-ching" moments when you can't help but wonder how it ever made it into someone's donation bag :)

Blazer // $14.99
Thrifted from: Talize

 I promised myself that I would never purchase another beige sweater since I have more nude knits in my closet than any person should seriously be allowed to own...

Alas, I could resist swopping up this barely-there knitted sweater. When you already own too many, what's one more :)                                                                                              
Sweater // $4.99 & 50% off sale             
 Thrifted from: Talize                               
May many exciting thrifting adventures await you (and your wardrobe) too this year!
Thanks for visiting ~ much love
