I do not know who decided to give this blazer away to a thrift store, but I am grateful for their insanity. When I first laid eyes on this blazer, I did a double take and thanked God for small blessings. It was love at first sight.
I found this blazer on Instagram from a thrift store called @shopvintagebowtique. I couldn't believe someone had not purchased it yet (which means it was meant for me). This blazer is 100% silk, and it cost $36.00! I was drawn to the print because it reminded me of Versace. I paired the blazer with a white bodysuit, white cutoff shorts, black Steve Madden heels, a small coin purse (similar one here), and my favorite necklace of the moment which brought the gold colors out in the blazer.
I believe thrift shopping is becoming the new way to shop. You can find a lot of treasures shopping online or in stores that offer previously owned clothing, and you can save a great deal of money. If you don't want to take the time to thrift shop on your own, try @shopvintagebowtique or @monicasthriftonabudget on Instagram and let them do the shopping for you.
Have a prosperous week everyone! Keep the faith!
P.S. - Thank you to everyone that helped me with assisting the family in Baton Rouge who lost all of their belongings due to the flood. They are overwhelmed with gratefulness.
Peace and Blessings
