Thrifty Layers: ootd

    In the spirit of my last post on the benefits of second hand shopping, I thought I'd feature this outfit which is almost entirely second hand.  The skirt and purse were purchased on the same visit, so I knew that the oranges matched.  However, the skirt needed to be hemmed up two inches to make the length more flattering.  The blouse was taken right off the mannequin on a later visit.  I wasn't even thinking of putting them all together at the time, but as soon as I got the blouse home, it just seemed right.
    My first instinct was to pair this set with black shoes and jacket, however when I held it up next to the brown sweater, it softened the colors in the plaid and in turn the overall look is now warmer.  I was a little uncertain that a drawstring peplum top would look nice with a skirt, but it hits at just the right place on my waist and flows well into the skirt.  My thrift store purchases probably totaled about $25 and I'm looking forward to putting them together in lots of different ways.
