InterLACEd {Thrift Style Thursday}

2014-01-23 11.36.01

Today’s Thrift Style Thursday post is literally fresh off the press! I just took these photos! So if you want to know what I currently look like – there you go! Minus the boots, and plus a blanket!

The polar vortex was merciful to me again, and I scored another day off. I really need a break from the whole “Ms. Zhenya…..” gig! (I am a teacher for those of you who didn’t know)

When it comes to lace, I personally believe that it’s hard to pull of. There are very few pieces that can actually be 100% made out of lace and NOT make you look like a giant doily.  In fact this dress is the only lace piece I have in my wardrobe.

My goal today was to show off a look, that is based around lace, but where lace isn’t the center of attention, and is concealed. So I threw a newly thrifted Chico’s sweater over this Urban Outfitters dress. Added a couple accessories and viola!

You may notice my Ted Baker bag. Well we are in a love-hate relationship here. The bag was the very first prize I ever won in a Giveaway! It was absolutely amazing, because I won it all the way from Russia, and it was mailed to Sam’s house. I knew I was going to marry him at that point, so I could trust him with a handbag! But I haven’t gotten much use out of it, and it’s been in the closet for a couple of years. It’s also lost some of it shape! But I am determined to make it work this season. I am bringing my Ted Baker bag back!

Feel free to check other girls’ posts and join us! We welcome you with open arms 😉

Now I will be shopping for another special even, that I am going to keep SECRET for just a few more days, but it’s even more exciting and I can barely hold it 🙂

I hope you enjoyed the outfit, and happy Monday!

Я обожаю магазин Savers! ПРОСТО ОБОЖАЮ! В прошлый понедельник в Америке праздновался День Президента и многие секонд-хенды предлагали скидки, но скидки действовали только в понедельник. В магазине Savers скидки действовали в воскресенье! Конечно вам нужна была клубная карта, но она бесплатная, поэтому вам всем нужно ее завести! Итак, все вещи, размеры и цены указаны над фото сверху.

Я также забежала в Goodwill и купила бусы из полудрагоценных камней и занавеску (?)! Да, ее я использовала для одной из своих переделок! Так что подписывайтесь на мой блог, чтобы не пропустить новые посты! Меня также можно найти на Smashion, Facebook и Twitter 🙂

Надеюсь вам понравились мои покупки!

This Week’s Finds: Clothing Haul

It all started with a trip to Salvation Army, unfortunately it was a miss for me this time, you know how thrift stores are. But then we went to Clothes Mentor (located in Market Plaza in Minneapolis) and Opitz (St. Louis Park), and that first store is seriously becoming my favorite consignment shop out there.

So here is what I got:

1. This pair of Chico’s pants, they are super light and breezy – perfect for work, especially during these extremely hot days. I already wore them to work yesterday and they seriously feel like lounge wear!

2. I also got this fabulous Eileen Fisher dress. I’ve always wanted to own something of hers, but her clothing can get pretty expensive, so I was more than happy to spend $20 on this dress. Plus it has pockets!

3. Up next is this Marc Jacobs top:

4. My last purchase at Clothes Mentor was this black chiffon skirt, it still had tags attached to it, and apparently it came from some local boutique and was originally priced at $145, well it only cost me $11.5 🙂

5. Our final stop was Opitz Outlet and it can be a hit or miss, but I scored this Ralph Lauren shirt, now if only the temperatures would go down!

As always – outfit posts to come! Have a fabulous day everyone!
