One of the things that I love about thrift stores (besides saving money) is that I often end up wearing something that is unique. I love finding and wearing one of kind pieces because it makes me feel like I can caring on a legacy. Sure, it’s not “that” deep but buying from thrift stores really has helped me expand my knowledge of fashion, designer brands, save money but most importantly, recycling. Hence the name, ReChycd.
You can probably quote me on this but this is probably my favorite vintage sweater. The sequin shoulders make this sweater 1000% that much better and prettier. I purchased these vinyl pants from Target last year on sale and I’ve said this before; these pants may be intimidating at first but trust me: THESE ARE SUPER DOPE. Sure, you are going to turn heads and maybe everyone might not like them, but who cares. Wear what you want. I really loved how this all black outfit turned out and what a cooler way to make an all black ensemble stand out by mixing different textures and adding a pop of color. The last element of surprise – the shoes. I didn’t want a simple black pair of heels because I felt like this outfit deserved a bit more, so, the black snake print heels it was. This has probably been one of my favorite outfits so far this season.

I am a complete fan of high waisted pants, especially if they are gingham ( or plaid). I bought these Goodwill the other day and I must be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about buying these pants. The reason, well because they do need to be tailored. They fit just a bit baggy towards the bottom so I was a bit on the fence because of the cost. However, after much debate and realizing they were 50% off that day, I took a plunge and bought them. I still wore them without having them tailored because I couldn’t resist myself, but honestly I will be taking these to the tailor. I am pretty sure it will cost me about $5 – $10.00 but hey, that’s cheap. This whole outfit was thrifted except the shoes – those are part of my x-mas present.
I wore pink for two reasons: One, when I tried them on I was wearing a hot pink workout shirt and I loved the contrast that the neon color gave the white and black print. Two: I loved the way it looked with my snake print heels! I kept it pretty simple from then on out. I added nice pink lip and the gorgeous black bag. Hope you guys like!
