I hope you all had a chance to watch the Oscars! As much as I wanted LaLaLand to get every Oscar they were nominated for, that didn’t happen. Oh well! As always speeches and outfits were my favorite. The one thing that confused me the most were the Walmart receipt short films, and the whole Walmart sponsorship of the ceremony in general. Anyone else? What looks were your favorite?

MBFW Day 8 Recap + Favorites

Just like all the good things in life, Fashion Week comes to an end, and even though I am sad it’s over, I am already looking forward to the September one!

Today began with Ralph Lauren’s collection, which included bright colors, plaid, leather, feathers, as well as the subtle grays and whites:

Hernan Lander had interesting cuts, and a lot of straight lines:

J. Mendel was a perfect combination of fur, flow and fabric. It was a perfect set of “runway to ready to wear” pieces for the fearless fashonistas:

And finally Calvin Klein presented us with a collection full of material that we haven’t seen in such abundance during this fashion week before. And as obvious as it is for the fall, the true genius of CK shines through every single look, because only he could pull it off! I am still asking myself – Was it wool, or was it pure genius?

And there you have it, the wrap up of Fall 2014 NYFW. I am going to miss it. Watching it on my lunch break, writing recaps, sharing my thoughts on the new styles, getting inspired by the designs. The good thing is, Fashion week always comes back!

Thrifting for Treasure: It’s been too long!

It’s been over 2 weeks since I posted my last Thrifting for Treasure. I didn’t want to do one last week, because I only bought two things, but this week’s haul, along with things that I’ve gotten off of freecycle and the items I thrifted a week before, should, all together, make a great post. Plus I was really inspired by Daniel Troppy and his almost daily YouTube haul videos.

The two items I bought last week were a salmon colored Talbots skirt and a cotton Gap black dress. When it comes to skirts, I have noticed myself leaning more and more towards anything high waisted and pocketed. And I know that I have blogged about it a lot over the past few weeks, so I am not going to bore you, but put the pictures up instead!

This week’s thrifting experience was a lot a lot more productive. I went to the Salvation Army in the North Loop district and here is what I got:

A vintage Coach purse, this one was meant for my mother-in-law, but I am not sure if she wants it, or if I am ready to give it up yet, but it’s absolutely stunning! If you are going for a Coach purse – go for the leather ones, don’t buy the fabric bags, even though they cost over $300, they still look cheap!

Next I got a Calvin Klein Dress. I immediately fell in love with this dress, the different layers of fabric add fullness and volume to the skirt. Plus I love how stripes go in different directions.

Remember my post on Trench Coats? Inspired by my husband? Well I just happened to find two trenches at the Salvation Army, and one of them is reversible – so that’s like 3 trenches instead of two 😉

The first one is a Jones New York Coat:

Guess which side I will be rocking more often?

The next coat is actually a rain coat by Ralph Lauren. It’s a bright orange color, which will definitely make me stand out in the Minneapolis crowd!

The last two things were a little hard to explain, but since I got those sewing patterns off of Freecycle, I’ve been dying to get my hands on some new fabric. And well – turns out they sell fabric at the thrift store. What a pleasant discovery! If you are not sure if your thrift store sells fabric – check the linens/blankets section – that’s where I found these two amazing fabrics:

Now I am definitely asking for a sewing machine for Christmas.

I hope you all enjoyed these finds, if you’ve gone thrifting this week, make sure to leave a comment with a link to your blog below, I would love to check your finds out.

Have a great weekend,
