I feel so business-quirky-chic in this "bonjour" sweater paired with my black bow pencil skirt. This skirt was an AMAZING find at Salvation Army, a local thrift store. As one of their 'designer' items, it was priced at $7, but well worth it. And what’s even more
exciting - the skirt is one of my favorite brands: French Connection! Usually I have to scavenge the clearance racks at department stores or boutiques to find French Connection items on my budget.
While thrifting, the first thing I do is check the label. If it is a designer piece, I then check for any imperfections. The belted bow of the skirt hangs to the side while
on the hanger, which almost deterred me from even trying it on.
What a fashion mistake that would've been! This skirt is perfect for any dressy business
occasions; I always get tons of compliments on it :)
Every once in a while I head to Kohl’s to browse only a few brands that really encapsulate my style. Elle is one of them. The style is very cute and sophisticated. This pink sweater caught my eye while Christmas shopping in 2014. You know how it goes... You go in determined to find gifts for other people and come out with two things for yourself.
I have very few opportunities to wear a sweater in Florida, so I jumped at the opportunity to bust out this cute pink "bonjour" sweater from my dresser drawer. I completed the look with my oversized John Lennon sunnies and my doctor style, thrift shop, black business purse. I discovered the purse at Village Thrift in Chicago. Anytime you travel, try to make time for at least one thrift store, because the things you find there will always have a little story be hind them. I have items from all over the country, and its great to think how they all managed to end up in my closet, a closet full of fashion stories.
