Daily outfit and style tip, wearing vintage Gucci watch

Every so often, when thrifting, I come across something I just can’t resist. I may not have any idea how I’m going to make it work, I may not even be sure it matches anything, but it has to be mine. All mine.

I saw this vintage gold sleeveless boxy top and didn’t even try it on. It taunted me with its sparkle.

It looked like it would fit. Lucky for me, it did. With a little patience I was able to eventually put together the perfect ensemble. The boxy top is, well, boxy. Not the best style for this bod, another thrifted find in the form of a gold braided skinny belt literally cinched it to perfection. Paired with dark skinny jeans and a shaped black blazer, voila!

The blazer has been in my closet a few years. It’s fully lined and made of a nice lightweight wool. I had the sleeves hemmed when I first bought it, however, it’s been difficult to wear because of the unique shape of front. It lent itself to creating the perfect peek-a-boo for a hint of gold belt.

Did you see the shoes? They’re unbelievable awesome, I feel like wearing them should give me super powers. I’ll let you know if any materialize.

Don’t give up on an item at first pass. Give yourself some time to see what other treasure might come your way to solve your problem just the way the skinny belt made the boxy top shapelier for me.

    You look slick, modern and so cool!
    And where did you got those shoes, they are fantastic looking and they are probably very comfortable as well.

    I love all of these pieces, the shoes, the jacket and the gorgeous gold top. My body is not a fan of boxy either, but you definitely made this work. I love it!

    I love every single piece of this outfit – and every single piece together! The fit of the blazer is so pretty, the gold sparkle – um, yes please! – the AWESOME shoes and Old Navy jeans? Perfection.

    Oh, love the top! Smitten with the sparkle. And the shoes absolutely deserve some superpowers along with them – but you’re already Superwoman so we’ll just have to see what the shoes can do to top that!

    Love the shoes. This whole outfit is so classically great and it looks so comfortable too. Love the slight sparkle to the shirt. – Katy
