This week on our Thrift Sisters link up, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays, and I, are sporting the same exact CAbi jacket. Check out her blog to see how she rocked this jacket with floral tights and a high collared shirt.
Keren and I always joke that we can literally walk into each other’s closet and probably wear everything as though we had purchased it ourselves. Case in point. Keren thrifted this CAbi jacket in Atlanta, GA. I thrifted this jacket at the Goodwill in San Diego, CA for $6 during the San Diego Thrifting Bus Tour. I posted my finds in my Thrifting Haul video on YouTube and upon seeing it, Keren immediately told me that she had also thrifted the same exact jacket. When thinking of this week’s theme, we decided to showcase the CAbi jacket.
I have to admit that styling this jacket was a little tricky for me. First, it’s a short sleeve jacket — a little different won’t you say? Second, the color is not a very common color. Third, it almost appears as though it is a dress. However, I spotted this striped dress that I wear often and figured this would work nicely. This strapless Ann Taylor striped, black and white dress is also thrifted. I bought this at AMVETS here in San Diego for $6. I am not one to wear strapless shirts or dresses without a shirt or jacket over it, and figured this jacket would be perfect for the dress. What say you?
In order to let the jacket “shine” I added these thrifted Michael Kors peep toe black heels. I love these black leather heels. Comfortable, not too high, Michael Kors and cost only $19 from Buffalo Exchange. Yes, I have to smile. Thrifting is such an excellent way of saving money. A cute handbag from JustFab and some accessories, and I was ready for Sunday brunch with the ladies!
Well, it’s Wednesay, so let’s jump into our Thrift Sisters link up! Keren and I launched our Thrift Sisters link up, encouraging you all to post thrifted or thrifty priced items to this link up. We are very appreciative of those who took time out to link up with us. This week’s featured Thrift Sister is the awesome blogger from Dressing Up For Me. Loving how she paired this GORGEOUS peplum shirt with the white boyfriend jeans! Check out her blog for more stylish outfits.
