Glittery Knit Sweater

It’s officially the holiday season and while everyone has their Christmas decorations out, I am pulling out all things sequin, sparkle and glitter! I love the holiday season because this is the best time of the year when I can wear all things sparkle without being judged, LOL. I own waaaaay too much sequin, embellished, glitter and sparkly clothes but that ain’t stopping me from purchasing more. So, here is this wonderful vintage (of course) glittery knit sweater I purchased at Goodwill, that I fell in love with and it was only $4.00!

Outfit Details

As mentioned above, I purchased this vintage glittery sweater at Goodwill and only knew this would be one of my favorite pieces this season. Although it is vintage, this sweater is definitely one of those pieces that never goes out of style and I am very thankful for that because I saved myself a few bucks since H&M has several versions of this sweater for 10x the cost of what I paid. The sweater is cuffed at the sleeves and it features four beautiful buttons and trimmed with black fabric. The detailing on the sweater is what absolutely sold me. I wanted to wear this sweater to work, so I threw on my J.Crew Wool trousers, my black Steve Madden Lace-up heels and my black handbag. I added a red lip to finish this look, just to add a little bit of oomph to this whole look.

A little late celebration

This is actually a late post, as I wore this outfit to happy hour with friends to celebrate my graduation. I wanted something comfortable, chic and fabulous and this was it. Although, I have to admit the skirt kept riding up and moving all over the place ( perhaps it needs to be taken in). Anyway, I had a wonderful time with friends and I was finally able to celebrate my graduation.

Happy Fashion,

Karla.

Saturday Vibes

I must admit this is one boring Saturday for me. I am doing all my class assignments a week in advance so that I am able to be stress and homework-free next weekend. In case you don’t know, Bonnaroo is next weekend and I am super excited about that but for now, i have to bite this bullet. Perhaps, I’ll take my studying to Starbucks in order to fight the boredom that comes with a quiet apartment.

Happy Fashion,

Karla

Mini Skirts

The days of short shorts, tank tops and mini skirts is fast approaching. Since it has been pretty hot in my area, I have already been sporting plenty or shorts and mini’s. I bought this mini skirt at a thrift store last year and I have worn it a few times. I like the fact that this skirt is linen(ish) so it is the perfect skirt for summer. I hope I can wear it at least one last time since the skirt is starting to fit me large at the waist.

Outfit Details

The shirt that I wore with this skirt is chiffon like/sheer like material so it was the perfect shirt for this skirt. I added the shoes for color contrast and a black clutch just to keep it simple. The one thing I love about this outfit? The skirt, shirt and clutch were both lucky Goodwill finds :).

Outfit Total (Thrifted items): $10.50

  • Skirt: $2.50
  • Shirt: $3.00
  • Clutch: $5.00

Happy Fashion,

Karla.

Olive

There is something so nice about earth tone colors especially olive green. I found this pretty little the dress the other day at the thrift store and I knew immediately that I wanted it. It reminded me of those dresses that H&M currently has in stores only that mine is a bit more older. This is definitely one of those pieces that will be using all summer & spring long. I decided to wear nude booties and a gorgeous black clutch just to continue the neutrality in this outfit.

Outfit Details:

The dress was such a bargain that I wish it would have been available in two colors. However, it is Goodwill so I consider this a lucky find in and of itself. The bag was yet another wonderful find at a thrift store it was only $5.00 and in perfect condition. I should mention that I got lucky with the background 😉

Happy Fashion,

Karla.
