A little quirky and a little chic!

A true thrifter can always appreciate a quirky piece of clothing and see the potential that it holds! That's exactly what I saw in this green and white striped blazer which reminded me of several things (lollipop, gum, amongst many other things). So to balance it out, I paired it with my FAVE navy pleated skirt and threw in my other fave colors, fuchsia & yellow. And the entire outfit sans the shoes & belt, is ALL THRFITED!!!!

All Thrift Everything Challenge: Outfit #1

Hello Fashionistas!!
While my mom was visiting a few weeks back, I was told by her that I am not allowed to shop for clothes for awhile! I do have a bad addiction especially to anything from thrift and vintage stores (doesn't help that my fave Salvation Army here in NJ has 50% off Wednesdays!!!!). So I'm taking heed to her advice, and when I did a survey of my closet I realized all the great pieces (majority thrifted) that I haven't worn yet. With that said,  I'm putting myself on a challenge for the next 2 months to wear only items from my closet AND to have at least 2 or more pieces be thrifted in my outfits!
Here is my first attempt at this challenge, and the blouse & pants happen to be thrifted (a total of no more than $5 together from the Salvation Army)...sorry but the shoes & accessories aren't but I did get a great deal on them.
stay tuned for more ALL THRIFTED outfits!

I'm back!!!

Hello Fashionistas!!!
Apologize for being M.IA. for the last couple of weeks, but I'm back now!! There was a lot going on, first it started with a cold, actually a terrible cough that lasted for about 2 weeks...but the best part while I was M.I.A. was a week long visit from my Mom!!! She visits every summer from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!), and of course our week was filled with thrift store shopping!!! I will be sharing my great "luv jones" finds with you guys soon!!!
Stay Tuned!
luv jones
