Color blocking this week guys! For those who do not know color blocking simply means that you pair two or three totally different colors together to make a bold statement. Of course, coincidentally, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays, and I, are color blocking black and white! Head over to her blog for more details on her bold and FAB dress and pocketbook! These pictures were taken during my recent trip to New York City. Heading out for some cocktails with my favorite cousin, this was a perfect choice for the fall weather in NYC. This outfit is thrifted head to toe, including accessories! But, when I tell you the real savings, you are really going to want to head to your nearest thrift store and hunt for these bargains.
This beautiful black and white sweater came from Frock You Vintage in San Diego for $5 during one of their huge sales. So many things I love about this sweater, to include the zig zag color blocking, the faux leather front, and the slanted cut in the front and back. But, really, can you beat $5 for this sweater?
These fantastic skinny jeans are Hudson jeans. I found these at a San Diego Goodwill for $14.99 (less, after my 10% military discount). Yup, I’ll let that linger — $14.99 for Hudson jeans. Hudson jeans start at $150! This particular pair of Hudson’s are $220. You know I screamed out loud when I tried them on and they fit like a glove. These jeans will make anyone feel like a super star…guess that’s why they want $200+ a pair. Color blocking with my BCBGMaxazria red and black suede heels. I actually thrifted the heels the same day I thrifted those Hudson jeans at the same Goodwill. Trust me, the Thrift Gods are real! The price – $7.99 (less after a military discount). I probably saved about $100 on those heels.
