A Sparkly New Year!


Yay! It's 2011! Since I am on break from school, and therefore not writing the date on any papers yet, I know it will take more time to get used to the '11 transition than it usually does to get used to writing and remembering that it is a new year.  Yesterday I did some great thrifting at Goodwill. I originally just went in to drop off some things, but I couldn't help looking around...for 2 hours:) I ended up with a red Ralph Lauren sweater with a cute cableknit drapey cowl neck, a back button up taupe silk blouse with a pretty neck detail, and a J.CREW wool A-line multicolored tan skirt...not too shabby! I sent them all to the dry cleaners immediately and will be integrating them into my closet soon.

I wanted something festive for the New Year and this sequined sweatshirt was  just what I was looking for. I layered it over my madras print button down and paired it with a denim pencil skirt. I completed the look with my warm fuzzy UGG boots and this grey knitted beret. Since the sequins are so bold, I decided not to wear any other accessories and just let the sweatshirt sparkle all on its own:)

I can't wait to see what you bought! I rarely, if ever, find anything at Goodwill. I think I just lack the patience to go through all of that clothes!

Goodwill is honestly my favorite place to shop, and I'm not just saying that! :) Yay for sparkly clothes on New Year's!
