Thrift Style Thursday: Road Closed // Blogger Link Up

2013-09-18 19.11.35 (1)

I have been loving the whole denim on denim situation, so when Martyna of Spoolish, and I decided to style a denim vest for this weeks Thrift Style Thursday, I knew exactly what i wanted to do! The vest I am wearing is Ralph Lauren, and I dug it out at my favorite Sal Val store in the warehouse district, you know which one, you’ve been there ūüėČ The vest is a size too big for me, and every time I put it on, I think it makes me look boxy, but then I see the pictures and start to realize how different we look to ourselves, than when others see us, even if that other is a camera lens!

I am also happy to announce that you will be able to link up to our Thrift Style Thursday posts from now on, isn’t that exciting?

Rock Your Denim Vest!!!

I’ve recently heard that if you want to see all of the latest fashion trends – go to Forever 21 – that’s where you’ll find them! And that’s true – everywhere you look in that store – you see something different and stylish, plus they have some classy pieces as well! I don’t really shop there that often, so those of you who thought I was now promoting for F21, think again! I did go in there during my trip to Chicago, simply because it was a free standing store! If some of you don’t know, I hate malls, just hate going inside, shopping there is too much for me (I wonder if you fellow thrifters have the same problem?), anyways, the one thing that I saw and liked was the denim vest, and besides if Jessica Alba can rock hers, why can’t I rock mine? Besides I saw this trend later featured on Chic Trends and I personally think it’s awesome!

The only problem was – I didn’t have one! So I went off to Salvation Army in the Warehouse district and found a Ralph Lauren one for $6! Just to compare, Forever 21 vests retail for at least $20! My original plan was (if I didn’t find the vest) to get a jacket and chop the sleeves off!

But here it is, my denim vest and the outfit I put together! We also went to Walker where my mother in law is a tour guide, so I got my very own personal tour of the two newest exhibits! Thank you, Sandra!
