Today’s outfit is mix of old and new (to me, anyways)!
I’m going for a late-50’s vibe today, friends!
The navy sweater is vintage Laura Gayle, and was thrifted for $1. Even though it’s acryllic, it’s incredibly soft, and I just love the zip-up back!
That gorgeous flower brooch was my grandmother’s, along with my navy & white polka dot head scarf.
Those faux leather/lizard skin patterned pants are the priciest part of my ensemble, coming in at a whopping $25.
When a coworker of mine was getting ready to consign several pairs of jeans and pants (all high-end boutique brands) online, I bought a couple of pairs. While I’m not a size 10, I was able to take these in really easily. I promise to show you a tutorial on this soon! They’re surprisingly versatile, and I’ve already worn them several times, so I think I’ll end up getting my money’s worth.
Sweater: $1 (thrifted)
Pants: $25 (used)
Head Scarf: Free

Love the outfit. It looks so mod!
Can’t wait to see the tutorial for the pants! It will add a lot of flexibility to what we can repurpose from the thrift store!
Yes, you look very classy in this outfit. You’re ‘too sexy for your clothes.’ (and I say it in an unperverted way).
It’s possible nobody wants to hear that the size 10 pants were too big for you…but I kid. It’s a great outfit.
Hubba Hubba!!! You look marvelous Dawling !
This looks really nice. The 50’s vibe suits you.
I love this look. Mixing black textures and adding a little white–so classy!
Love this look, very Audrey Hepburn!
Love the outfit… a little retro, a little funky… all style!
Love, love, love everything about this outfit and your cute poses! 🙂 I sometimes play that same calculation game: it’s a good day indeed when I am loving my look AND everything put together costs less than the price of one new shirt at my favorite store. Woo hoo!
Cute as always. You certainly know how to style clothing. 🙂
Also looking forward to the tutorial on taking in the pants. Love this look!
Such a cute outfit. Looking forward to the tutorial on taking in pants.
Love the entire outfit, and think that it’s so great that you have your Grandmother’s brooch!!
Cute outfit and very appropriate that the trousers are Fashionista for the Re-Fashionista! 🙂
