#TrendyTuesday: Throwback like the cool kids

As a thrift-a-holic, I get asked a lot of questions about my style and what inspires me to pair certain things together. Most recently, you all have been wondering how to find items with original tags and the best way to style a vintage piece. Today I answered BOTH in one colorful look!

This Talbots turtleneck has been my go-to since I purchased it from the Brannon Crossing location (Nicholasville). I noticed the tag dangling off the arm of the shirt, but it’s easy to just glance over a rack and move on. Take an extra minute; if you’re in a hurry, skim the specialty rack. I paid just $3.99 for this top instead of its $59.95 original tag attached. The relaxed structure is the reason it’s the base of my look today.

These Ann Taylor LOFT black skinnies feel like butter. But seriously, they are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever owned! Thanks to the color of the week sale, I paid just $2.65 at the Berea location. They are the perfect pair of black denim for everyday wear and a throwback look!

Because the 90s were ALL about color, this vintage denim vest is perfect! When I saw it, I HAD to have it. The best part is I found it during the color of the week, so I paid just $3.15. I love the raw stitching lining the vest and the frayed threads across the front. Luckily, it’s one size bigger than what I normally wear, giving it that effortlessly oversized look I was going for!

My sassy pink Chuck Taylors automatically make any outfit so fun! They are comfortable, cute, and full of personality, but maybe I’m biased. I purchased them brand-new for just $9.99 at the New Circle location (Lexington) and will be wearing them for years!

Don’t think you can’t pull it off because you totally can! Whenever I style an outfit, I get so excited because I love trying something new. Remember to keep your eyes peeled for tags and mind open for creative ideas!
