whats my style? Often, I jokingly call my style Geek chic. Honestly, it pretty much describes my eclectic fashion persona. I wouldn't even really say I'm a fashions person. New trends come and go and I usually stick to my completely out-of-date look. I enjoy plucking a detail or two from today's fashion and marry it with my thrift store finds. Add in a tiny smudge of glam and call it an outfit.
Layers. Layers. Layers. With a limited budget there is zero room for a fashion budget. Thrift stores are my best friend. Any chance I get I scope out the thrift store. I rarely spend over $5 for a shirt, jeans, etc. seriously. And most of the things I find still have tags on!! So, these aren't ratty, grandmas attic type of things.... Well, not always. Sometimes a really cool vintage piece will find its way to my home.
Today's New Year's Day, so let's go with a bold Kelley green and black and white combo.
Vintage vest: $6
I adore vests. They can easily be layered over a tee, under a light jacket, or in this case, over a sheer black and white polka dot top. For New Years Eve I wanted something super comfortable yet bold enough for the occasion.
Vest: I'm not sure if they're a nod to the ultimate best decade ever- the 90's- or if it's a love of my child hood idol- Clarrisa- that I just can't shake.
Either way, they're my fave go to item. And I'm sure you will see them time and time again here on Fashion Friday.
what are you wearing today? Did you have a totally fab outfit last night for New Years Eve? Share!
ps: can we talk about the eye shadow pictured above? It's from Ipsy and it's a fabulous neutral combo that can be warn daily- and I do! It's smooth, stays put, and can be used lightly for day or dramatically for night. Love! I may just have to feature it on an up coming "Geek Out!" Series!
