DIY Frayed Hem - Thrifting Divay I absolutely love these skinny jeans with the raw hem.  Would you believe it was an easy, thrifty DIY project? Denim trends come and go so quickly that it’s tiring and expensive to keep, but if there’s one type of jean that’s become a modern classic, it’s the artfully destroyed pair. With a hole at the knee or a frayed hem, these are now must have closet staples for the chic fashionista. Continue reading

Wearing Sequins for a holiday party

Sequins and Full Skirt - Thrifting Diva I am all about the full skirt look for the holiday parties this season.  As you can see in my last post, a full tulle skirt made a fab appearance at my job’s holiday party.  This time, I am featuring this black full skirt and gorgeous sequin top for another holiday party I recently attended.
Sequins and Full Skirt - Thrifting Diva Sequins and Full Skirt - Thrifting Diva You already know my absolute love for full skirts, as you have seen them make an appearance more times than you can count, like here, here and here.   So, why not add a full skirt to the holiday party mix, right?  I bought this black full skirt from SheIn for less than $20.  As I have said before, purchasing items from this store can be a hit or miss, as their sizes sometimes leave me wondering if they are sizing their clothes for a twelve year old girl or a woman.  But, thankfully, these full skirts have always been on point, look gorgeous, fit perfectly and priced just right.
