Change it up with a flannel dress from Target via Goodwill (half off day!)

Now throw on a skirt 12 by Twelve via Goodwill
Put on some high heel boots (I don't where I got them, but I love them!)

  1. Loved your little experiment! Great looks as always.

  2. thanks for the "invite" to your blog and the comment on mine...will look around!!! Looks like a gold mine here!!!:)

  3. I love the "experiment." Extremely successful in my opinion. The gold skirt is awesome! Wondering if you pushed your fashion comfort level on that one. In the next few months I want to focus more on finding pieces at the GW that are unique. The jeans look great on you. I think if you added a stiletto type shoe and worked the pants into an evening casual-glam look, you'd probably enjoy the volume more. Very classy and sexy cut.

    Great Post!!!

  6. Holy smokes! That's a lot of looks. I love to see the results of experiments like yours. Keep on stylin' :)

  7. Yes skinnies look so much better! I am adoring that Ralph Lauren blazer, with the cardigan and boots, looks like Ralph Lauren ad/catalog. Well done!!
