Today’s Thrifted Closet is the outfit I wore to Anthony’s family birthday party. As a bonus Isobel is making a special appearance in her thrifted outfit, too.
Our local Goodwill has a deal with Target and so often you can find brand new Target clearance items while thrifting that still bear their original tags. Such was the case with this adorable brown and white polka-dot dress. The only other thrifted item here is the copper and turquoise cuff that fits my teeny wrists like a charm. I bought it at the Sales Yard for five dollars back in high school.
The tights and socks are from Target, and the boots are from Famous Footwear. When Isobel saw what I was doing she wanted me to take a photo of her party outfit, which is perfect because this pink Ralph Lauren number was also thrifted. I’m not huge on brand names but the dress is pinkpinkpink and given the choice Isobel would wear it every other day. She’s also sporting some (pink) thrifted tights and her kitty boots, which I totally let her wear to the party because I am an Awesome Mom. Please note: Pink Purse. She doesn’t go anywhere without her #1 fashion accessory.
This trench coat is also from Target. Though I’ve often found some sweet 1970s London Fog trench coats I can never buy them because they have a weird fit. Their sleeves are wide and dramatically short–like mid forearm short. Plus they have that weird pleat on the back that makes you look wider. It’s a shame because the quality and warmth of a London Fog trench outstrips anything I’ve seen in stores, but I’m not going to wear a coat with a wonky fit. Anybody know what I mean? Or is this just a problem that my long spaghetti arms and I have all to ourselves?
Linking up with Mandy.
