Thrift Sisters Link Up: Open Back Sequin Top

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

This week, The Thrifting Diva and I are wearing our open back sequin tops, inspired by Rihanna. Be sure to stop by Ayana's blog to get details on her haute date night look! I paired my top with a long maxi skirt.







WHAT I WORE
Blouse $6- BCBG (B & R Thrift Store) 
Skirt $15- Harper and Gray (Cherokee Rose Consignment) 
Shoes $5- Charlotte Russe (Park Avenue Thrift Duluth)
Purse $15- Martin + Osa (Ecologie Vintage and Resale)
Total $41

I have been been inspired by Rhianna's open back sequin look for several months now and I was so excited to finally style this look. I have had this black sequin cardigan for about 2 years now, I wore it HERE to a fashion show. I knew that it would work perfect for this inspired look. All I had to do was wear it backwards. I call that maximizing my wardrobe like I have done HERE and HERE. For this inspired look, I paired my cardigan with a red flowy maxi skirt that I scored during the January Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour. This look certainly suits my personality.

How do you maximize your wardrobe pieces?

What I Wore: Aztec Print Pleated Skirt

Tuesday, January 20, 2015






WHAT I WORE
Blouse $5- Follies (Park Avenue Thrift Duluth) 
Skirt $10- W Work to Weekend (Red White & Blue Thrift Store) 
Shoes $0- Mossimo (scored from Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Swap)
Purse $699- Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM (Alexis Suitcase Consignment)
Total $15 (without purse)


Skirts and dresses are the epitome of femininity, but during the Fall I am often forced to wear pants. However, by choosing the right accessories I can wear my skirts and look warm and chic. I wore this outfit on Saturday while hosting the Thrifting Atlanta Bus Tour. It is my stylish version of the thrifting uniform. As much as I love this skirt, I got more compliments on the blouse. The blouse was purchased from Park Avenue Thrift Store in Duluth. The decorative fringe on the cleavage is absolutely adorable. This Aztec print pleated skirt is one of my absolute favorite thrifted finds. I scored it in New Orleans at Red, White and Blue Thrift Store. I fell in love with the colorful bold print. Textured opaque tights are a must have during the Fall. I paired mine with ankle boots that I scored from the Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Swap. 

How do you style your skirts in the Fall?
