Granny's Vintage Necklace

My maternal grandmother away passed 1 year ago on March 31, 2013. I miss her so much! The awesome elephant necklace I'm wearing belonged to her. My mama told me that she used to sneak this necklace from Granny and wear it to high school. I think of Granny every time I wear it.

Broomstick Skirt

Whether you call it a broomstick, maxi, gypsy, or boho skirt... I love 'em! It's such an easy piece to style year 'round. Just grab a sweater, blazer, tee or tank top. Add boots, heels, sandals or flip-flops. Throw on some accessories and you're all set.

Rainbow Sweater Dress (2 Ways)

I love this dress. It's cute, super comfortable and it finally allowed me to wear these tights. I bought these tights a long time ago, but couldn't find the right outfit to wear with them.
Look how my mom styled the same dress. Very chic with her suede fridge boots!

Men's Cap

Thrifty Tip: Ladies, don't forget to check out the men's and boys' clothing and accessories when thrifting. I've found lots of great shirts, blazers, jeans, belts and hats & caps, like the one I'm wearing.

Here's a close up of the cap, so you can see jewel tones in the houndstooth print.

Vintage Wool Jacket

Okay so, this vintage wool jacket... the puffy sweater sleeves, the structured vest, the leather trim... pure awesomeness! This is the kinda of unique, good quality piece that makes thrifting worthwhile. It is from an Austrian designer brand called Resi Hammerer. I looked up the brand up online, but didn't find out much. I saw a few pieces from this same designer for sale on Etsy and Ebay. Many of the pieces were also wool and advertised as vintage from the 70's or 80's. None of them were are cute as mine, though!

Happy 2014!

I know for the last few months we have been very bad about posting pictures. I am determined to start back posting regularly in 2014. 

I hope you like this inexpensive OOTD. All together it cost under $60. The key to shopping at stores like Rainbow and Rue 21, is to only buy basic or trendy pieces that don't look cheap. Don't try to build your wardrobe there! I only paid $15 for this faux leather vest and it looks very similar to some of the more expensive ones I've seen (like here & here).
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy New Year!
