You know I don’t have to get dressed up very often anymore – and even my former office dress code was super-casual. But a woman likes to get polished every now and then. So I challenged myself to create an all-thrift dressy outfit. Woman does not live by yoga pants alone : >

This fab three-quarter sleeve jacket (similar) is a new thrift acquisition. It fits close to the body and creates a waistline. The maker is Trina Turk – one of my favorites – and I bought it at our Molly Mutt thrift for $10. It’s a tight fit if I wear a knit top underneath, but it works well with just a tank top or colorful scarf (sim) tucked in the neckline.
I love the pleated skirt, too – a thrift score by Theory (sim). It’s very ladylike, so the next time I wear it might be with a graphic tee and biker boots. My booties today are super-comfortable (sim), purchased years ago from I-forget-where. I hope I avoided the ladies-who-lunch look with my messy hair (hair by Ellen Wille) and big honking bracelet (sim).
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
