I’ve expressed my love for vintage sweaters here many times. However, this is THEE favorite vintage sweater. I bought this one back home a few years ago and I originally thought I was going to resell it but I lied. HEHEH ^__^. I fell in love with it so I was like, eh, why not. I’ve worn this sweater more than three times of course, but here are the three ways I featured it on the blog.
I have worn this sweater for work, for a cocktail party and on a casual Saturday afternoon. As you can see here, it was really easy to transition from look to the other by easily replacing a few items. You don’t have to have a huge closet or an endless amount of clothes in order to look fresh. It takes key pieces and reworking your look to make a simple item look “new” on a different day/outfit.

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.
