Thrifted Treasure: Holiday Peplum & A Croc Wedge

I love the sweater. I love the boots. Together with this skirt? A slight thumbs up. Only because I'm showing a little leg. I don't remember the last time so much of it was on display. Hello, Winter.

It's hard for me to accept this but I don't have any sequins or sparkles in my closet. I'm shocked. Are you? I must go back to the thrift store and rectify that immediately! I thought this sweater had kind a festive fun look to it. It's blue with gold threads running through it turning it kind of greenish. There's also a ruffly collar, puffy sleeves and a peplum. I dig peplums.

The boots are new. They have no wear on the soles. You can't see it in the picture but they have a wedge as do the majority of my boots. They're You by Crocs and super comfy. They are going to look so much better with jeans or leggings.

The skirt isn't thrifted but it was a cent. I went shopping in a mall the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This is one of the items I got as a part of a "buy one, get one for a penny" deal.

So I'm all dressed up and we didn't get out. It's so dark and dreary. I have one gift to get and I of course I am waiting until the very last minute. I am likely to regret this decision.
The box behind me are V's gift from her grandmother. It's inching in on my "backdrop".

Do you wear festive clothing for holidays? Got any sparkle in your closet?

What, no sparkles?!

I have a metallic gold sweater that I love and a gray sequin tank that I had to have and have only worn once. But I do love the glittery.

Have a great Christmas.

Hey lovely lady! Thanks for sharing your style with me today. I'm having a bit of skirt envy at the moment. Love how you paired it with the tights! Enjoy your holiday weekend :D

@DaenelT I know, right? A week later and I still haven't fixed that problem. Happy New Year!

@Tricia I can't do nothing with that jacket right now. The arctic temps are near.

@Quiana thank you! Nothing wrong with a little leg but I've been acting like there is for the past couple of years. Shorter skirts make me look taller too.

@Chandra thank you! I love your blog, btw.
