The Velvet Trend

Happy Saturday edition of Thrift Thursday! I’ve been fighting a sinus infection so getting ready for pictures has just not happened, but I finally sucked it up and got dressed and out on the town yesterday. The perfect weather and having a new outfit gave me a little boost to overcome this cold.

When you can match the latest trends on a thrift budget it’s better than and ice cream cone on a hot day. I’m obsessed with the velvet movement. Soft, glistening, luxurious fabric…I mean come on it’s pretty awesome.

I found this velvet blazer at my local thrift store for $3! For this look I went all out velvet. Blazer, purse, shoes, and even thought of matching my awesome velvet maternity pants with it, but I edited and ended up finishing the look with skinny jeans.

  • Blazer – $3 (thrift store on 50% off day)
  • Maternity Skinny Jeans – $38 (sale at Motherhood Maternity Outlet)
  • Maternity Top – $15 (sale & coupon Macy’s)
  • Boots – $24.99 (Marshals)
  • Purse – $0 (gift from mom)
