Thrifted Treasure: Chevron Topper and Orange Sweater Vest

Yesterday, I ventured downtown on the train with V in the carrier for Afrobella & Friends TJ Maxx & Marshalls Holiday Shopping Party. I pulled out some complicated pieces that required some thought and work to pull it together. I thought I would have time but Violet woke up just as I stepped out of the shower. Boo. It was short nap day.

The chevron coat is my absolute favorite thrift store find. It's vintage and looks like it was home sewn. It came with a matching dress that was way to snug so I donated it back to the store. I don't wear it as much as I would like to. I thought I could layer it up for warmth but the layers were just making me look frumpy.

The shirt has been worn before. It's purple. It's J. Crew and it was brand new.

The vest is a reddish orange color and I didn't quite know what to do with it. I bought it for the color and the square shaped neckline. I threw it over the shirt for warmth and I had a bit of gaposis at the bust. Orange and purple? Does it go together? What else can I do with it?

I was definitely doing too much yesterday. I should have done a simple top and jeans but that gets so boring everyday. I need a night out so I can be as spicy as a want to be!

What is the most prized possession in your closet? Does it get a lot of wear?
