What was your favorite style acquisition of 2016? (Or at least the last few months, because unless it was a wedding gown, who can remember what we bought last January?) Did you buy or receive a fabulous piece of jewelry, a vintage scarf or awesome booties? We can leave the not-so-great purchases aside for now, and assume they were returned, re-thrifted or eBay-ed!
Here are my highlights of the year, closet-wise:
I don’t buy a lot of full price retail, but I had to have these amazing Born boots. And I am so glad I got them in September because they walked me all over New York City in comfort. I wear them to volunteer at the thrift, too, when I am on my feet all day. I love the Cafe Distressed color.
This hot pink blazer, thrifted in Greenwich Village, is getting a lot of wear. It’s not really what I thought of as “my” color, but I took a chance. As it turns out, hot pink goes with everything – I’ve even worn it over a red sweater.
I found these high-waist cropped jeans at the Molly Mutt where I volunteer, and again I was taking a chance (well, a $3 chance). I’ve discovered I love the higher waist with a top tucked in, and I like to bare my ankles. Now the challenge will be to find another, similar pair!
A gray cashmere vee-neck, almost new and soft as a kitten, was another great thrift score. The brand is Joseph, which I had to look up and yes, it’s a very nice sweater that someone just didn’t love. I love it.
