[Thrifted] Floral Blazer

There are so many treasures that you can find in a thrift store or a consignment shop. With a little patience and persistence you can score great pieces for really inexpensive prices just like I scored this floral blazer (I know for sure this blazer was under $ can't beat that). It's a pretty "old - school" piece with bold colors and an even bolder pattern. When I first laid my eyes on it, it seemed like a "granny" blazer, but I envisioned just how I could update this blazer by adding some trendy pieces with it. The thing you should remember about shopping in a thrift shop is you MUST have an imagination. However the item hangs on the rack is NOT how you have to style it when you get home!

I was able to tone this look down by pairing the blazer with all black garments underneath - as the supporting cast - to let the blazer be the star of the show. The crossbody multicolored bag is one that my aunt purchased for me years ago, but it helped pull the look together so well.

Outfit Details: Thrifted Blazer (Goodwill), Leather Tee (Off The 5th), Leggings (Target), Suede Booties (Aldo), Bag (Purchased), Aviators (H&M), Gold Watch (Charming Charlie's), Gold Necklace (Forever 21), Lippie (M.A.C "Heroine"

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend! TGIF luvs and happy thrifting :)



  1. I like how you pulled this look together. I think it will help people rethink what's in their closets; you don't always have to throw out "old" stuff. Sometimes you just gotta use imagination, as you said, and remix it!

    1. I know people say it's good to purge your closet every season of the "old" things, but if there is nothing I've learned about fashion, it's trends are circular. They come back around so don't throw away your vintage items just yet! They may be useful in a few year :)

  2. OMG I love the blazer and the purse! Those colors are stunning.
