Thriftanista Style File: Peplum, Ruffles, and Chevron

I attended "Who Wants to be a Fashion Judge?" at Calvin Tran last week. There were yummy treats, cocktails and great music. We critiqued (clap and clap louder) women ripping the runway in pieces from the Calvin Tran collection. It was a lot a fun.

I ended up sitting next to 2 lovely Thriftanistas and meeting a few more in the room. The thrift magnet was strong.

What I Wore

The sweater is really working for me. I'm getting a lot of wear out of it. I wore it here and here. This winter has been so mild. I pulled out my favorite thrifted piece - the chevron coat. The skirt is not thrifted but it was $5!

Black/White chevron coat - homemade (thrifted)
Blue/gold sweater - unknown (thrifted)

Floral print ruffle skirt - H&M
Black cable knit tights - ???
Black booties - Born


Three of the models. Everyone was working it. The fabulous green dress was the best piece overall judging by audience applause.


Jewelry for sale. I like jewelry but I hardly ever wear it. Most days I'm too lazy busy to take the extra effort.


The clothes. Everything was sewn well and made with good quality fabric. I fondled the fabric a bit. :)


Are you close with your jewelry? Special occasion only? None of the time?

I hardly wear jewelry. I got my ears pierced in 7th grade and it's been a struggle to keep them decorated since. >sigh< Maybe I'll get better.

I love the combo of patterns you chose :) I personally like accessories but rarely wear them. My 2 year old steals it all lol

Are the holes still open? Mine close up periodically.

Than you!

V likes jewelry too. If I put a piece on her it automatically becomes hers.

I'm getting more into jewelry since I've returned home and have been invited to a TON of parties. My stylist friend gets very frustrated with me b/c I don't have enough accessories.

Mama Violet said...

You have to have baubles for all those parties. It really can revive a look. Maybe I should put that on my "do me" list. :)

You look cute in your sweater AND in everything else!

This winter has SO been a non-winter. I LOVE winter, so I'm not real happy it skipped us this year. (I'm in Central Wisconsin)

Mama Violet said...

Thanks Keetha.

I wish it could be warm all year around. I'm so glad it has been really mild this year.

I stumbled upon your blog and I really it. Especially the jacket. I just started my first fashion link party, called Watch What I'm Wearing, and I would be honored if would add a link at www.watchoutforthewoestmans.blogspot.com. Who knows maybe you will get some new visitors from it as well.

Mama Violet said...

Thanks for stopping by! Following now. I'll definitely check in on the link party!
