Goodwill, how I love thee. This entire outfit, with the exception of the shoes was purchased at Goodwill.
Cropped pants are supposed to be one of the hottest trends this spring. I purchased these earlier in the season because I wanted a good pair of silk pants. When I purchased them, I doubted that I would wear them again because these are not your every day pants. However, once I came across this Marc Jacobs (BNWT) blouse at Goodwill, I knew these pants would be a perfect fit. I wanted a cute date night look that was functional and non-traditional to the standard dress. I also wanted sparkle and shimmer to this look so I added this beautiful embellished sequin silk jacket and a pair of satin shoes. For a hint of color, I added this lace evening clutch and of course a bold lip because red is my favorite color.

This is outfit number three of my mini-series: Holiday Outfits. I am actually excited about this outfit because everything was purchased at Goodwill except the clutch.
As I’ve mentioned before, I love anything sparkly: sequin, embellishments, glitter etc., I am THE person that purchases every single piece of vintage-embellished dresses at the thrift store because why not? I saw this top glittering across store from the corner of my eye and I ran to it before someone else snagged it from me. I knew this was a special piece but I didn’t know HOW special it was until I saw the tag, this is a VINCE top. I had been wanting a pair of silk pants and I immediately knew that I wanted to wear this top with silk pants. The shirt has glass embellishments with gold sequins and I really wanted more of the gold to stand out in this out so I wore a pair of clear chunky heel ankle straps and a loctite clutch to match with the heel. Of course, since it’s cold outside, I finished this look with my fur coat.
