Happy New Year! Ok, so technically a day late and these photos were taken last week, but in keeping with my spirit of 2nd hand 1st and dressing in mostly thrifted/consigned items, it is fitting for a New Years post. I feel my best, and consequently most creative, when I can combine thrifted pieces like this red leather skirt with a modern silhouette such as these pointy heeled Stuart Weitzman’s.
My favorite parts to this outfit are the little details: small pearl studs, the handmade necklace that my sister crafted as a Christmas present from my dad’s collection of seashells, and the contracts between the fabrics, colors and styles. And in case you were wondering how I did in the dressing part, the final tally of my items is: 6 items thrifted/consigned, 4 items purchased retail, and 1 handmade item. Here’s to a year of creative dressing!
