What I wore: Stripes and Dots & 99.9% Thrifted


Last saturday, I was frantically searching for the perfect outfit to wear my first Christmas party of the season. I needed something semi festive, but also not very warm
 It was 70* saturday, and today it's 20*....gotta love Texas!
Of course, you should already know that the first place I look is pinterest.

I saw this picture, and knew I already had all the pieces in my closet. 
Except, I wanted to add pops of red to make it more "christmas-y"

This is what I came up with:




and here is the best part...
it is 99.9% thrifted!
Striped tee (Jcrew) skirt, necklace and belt- goodwill
seriously, I love goodwill.
and the shoes were purchased at macy's for 70% off...
( I'd hardly consider that "retail")
but, Im honest, thus the 99.9%.

So, how did I do?
Have you tried print mixing yet?
