Thrifty Threads – Dressy Casual

Anytime someone asks me how I would describe my style, I tend to say casual chic or dressy casual. On most occasions I don’t like being too gussied up but I also love a few stand out pieces. Dressy trousers tend to make me think of a stuffy corporate environment, which is totally not my style, but I found a pair that I had to have during O So Chic‘s clothing swap party. Instead of rocking the pants as is, I cuffed them up and threw on a bright top and sparkly shoes for a more relaxed look.

I love how the red/burnt orange Gucci top I snagged for $1 at the Goodwill Outlet stands out with the pants. Yes, Gucci for $1! Be sure to check in your area to see if there’s an Outlet near you, clothes are priced by the pound and you can walk away with great deals.


And of course no outfit is complete without a pair of statement shoes, so I added my glitter peep toes from Necessary Clothing. These were my last purchase before I went on my year long Thrifty Threads 365 shopping hiatus.


One of my fabulous readers sent me a great pair of earrings and this was the perfect time to wear the cloth and beaded hoops.
