The Trendthrift Episode 5...

Can you believe that it is mid-May? Where does the time go?
These $1 Khakis are getting a lot of wear. The beauty of this must-have wardrobe staple is that it can be worn in many different ways. But I wear them in one way...with a cardigan.
This is the first pair of khakis I have worn in a long time. Khakis have neverreally fit me very well and I have tried them all, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Gap, but most were snug through the thigh region. I feel confident when I wear these, the cut is forgiving, and the crop hits just right on my leg.

My favorite high maintenance accessory:

The RunDown:
Cardigan- Banana Republic
Top- Calvin Klein via Off Saks
Pants- Express, Drew Fit via the Plaid Door
Sandals- Frye
Necklace- Revival Tassel Necklace, Stella & Dot

The Trendthrift Episode 4!

I am a bit delayed in posting this outfit as it is what I wore on Wednesday. This was the first all thrift/ consignment/ liquidation outfit. And I loved it. Super comfortable, super casual chic.

$1 Pants!
$1.08 after tax.
They are Express pants in the Drew fit and I bought them for less than the Pellegrino I drank at lunch the other day.
These were a find at the Plaid Door in Dallas behind St. Lukes Episcopal Church at Preston/ Royal. Sorry Andrea that I popped in without you! We'll go together I promise.

The top is Banana Republic and it came from Revente Resale next to Run On! Dallas on Mockingbird. This is a great consignment store and is definitely worth a pop in! There were some Marchesa gowns with the tags still on them in the store! Crazy.

The cardigan (my favorite article of clothing) was a $6 grab from my favorite store of all time, UAL, in C-town.

The necklace is made up of three pieces from Stella & Dot's La Coco Collection.

As you can see I am still working on my tripod and self portrait abilities....

The Rundown
Cardigan- Saint Grace- UAL
Blouse- Banana Republic- Revente Resale
Pants- Express- The Plaid Door
Shoes- old Steve Madden
Necklace- Stella & Dot

It was supposed to be Trendthrift Episode 4

But then a baby happened during the morning routine.
This baby to be exact. We will not speak of what happened to the button down shirt that was part of the original outfit concept.

Dear Readers, nothing below has been thrifted, swapped, gifted or anything else budget-relieving. This is all store bought and maybe even at full retail.
Don't care.
Love this skirt and need to give a shout out to the Boston Fashionista on the inspiration to pull out the leopard-print for everyday work attire.

Thank you That Pink Girl for the fabulous TriPod! Notice the slight difference in location in the backyard. Yeah slight variety!

The Line-up:
Cardigan- BCBG- 3 years ago
Silk Blouse- Banana Republic- 4 years ago
Skirt- Trashy Diva
Shoes- Sofft- Marshalls
