Paint it Black

Blazer- Thrifted. Tee, Heels- Target. Black jeans- Kohls. Necklace- DIY. Clutch- Forever21.

Many thrifting tips have told me to check out the children's section, but I never really heeded that advice until recently. I found this black double breasted blazer in the little boy's section of Savers thrift in Austin. It fits better on me than any woman's blazer I've ever found in a thrift store. Don't be ignorant like me, if you haven't checked out the kid's section before, you are missing out!



After a recent excursion to Forever21, I came home with this skirt and a knit dress. I really like the recent paint strokes trend that has been appearing in fabrics. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, but I think that this skirt has the perfect dose of it.

I actually went back and returned the knit dress later, only to be re-reimbursed with store credit. Now I am debating using my gift card to get these black wedges online.

What do you think? Should I order them?

  4. Ooh, the wedges look comfortable (thanks to their high platform in front) I'd say go for it! And yes, I utilized the wonderful world of children's clothing when I got my motorcycle jacket. Turns out a boys' jacket has the perfect proportions and only cost $99! Best buy of the century.

  5. Oooh love the blazer and totally know what you mean, I sometimes shop from the kid's section of any store and you can find some great deals that way. And I say get the wedges they are adorable!

  6. I saw those in-store! F21 heels are so fun sometimes, although I fear that they would just as easily break apart.

    Great blazer find as well. The children's sections are always fun

  7. BLACK, I love black :) I can't seem to break out of it even as summer approaches. I love Gap kids for shoes! That's the upside of having small feet hehe. The wedges will go with everything so if you like them then take the plunge! xoxo

  8. Blogaholic much? Putting me to shame!

    I like that "clutch" thing. I mean, I generally think that clutches are smaller but it might just look big since you're the size of a large pixie. I mean, I know it's a clutch since it doesn't have little handles. but whatever. I like it. Haven't been to saver's lately. Will go once I get more hours at work.

  12. wow those are Target shoes? time to look at the shoes section at Target...

    F21 shoes are so hit or miss for me, especially when looking online. some will look super cute online, but look really weird IRL. i'd go see how they look in person first if that's possible. the good news is, you can return (for store credit) online purchase too.

  16. I like them, but I've found with their shoes it's best to see them in person, and try them on. Although if it's already store credit, you really have nothing to lose if you have to return them.

    I hope you got them xxx
