As many of us are transitioning into our careers, it is important to look our best and dress the part. My favorite aspect about throwing a work outfit together is combining higher end clothing with chic thrift store purchases.
The trick is to focus on the piece of the outfit you want noticed the most and then compliment the rest with your thrifts. Here are tips to watch for during this winter wonderland season. ❄
What’s better than velvet? Absolutely nothing. It’s comfortable, feels incredibly soft and is appealing to the eye. It’s one of those items people just have to ask about. To add bling, find sparkly buttons to sew on yourself.
But I swear, it’s worth it
Pair your favorite chic, trendy and quality denim with a thrift blouse. Right now denim coated jeans are the hottest item but come at not so affordable price tag. It’s worth the splurge if you wear them often. My go to pair are Articles of Society. You can find them at Buckle, Nordstrom and Articles of Society. Add a studded black clutch to rock an edgier look.

It’s all about the bootie
Ask any fashion blogger, the best part about winter shoes is the bootie. You can find booties that are flat, mid-heal or a wedge. The options are endless. Most upscale thrift shops have several choices.
Rose gold is a hot commodity this season. Trendy stores including Forever21, H&M and Charming Charlie have look-a-like rose gold jewelry. Sometimes you can find even better options at consignment shops.
