Thrifted and Quilted

The majority of my closet is either old or thrifted. I've had this blouse for at least a decade. I'm surprised it's held up this long. I basically keep it around because I am black blouse deficient. I hold on to for the times like this when I really want all black as a background for a statement piece. I wanted the quilted Floreat skirt from my last thrift haul to be the full show.

I don't consider myself a quilted clothes kind of girl but when I saw this one at Goodwill it definitely peaked my interest. I specifically zeroed in on the purple needlepoint design. It's a very subtle color change from the black border. The quilting itself is nice and thick making it great for winter. It's pretty casual for everyday too.

This skirt originally sold for $128. Unlike the Madewell jeans from the same haul, I'm not sure I would have paid that much for this skirt retail. It's high quality and well made. Paying $6 is as high as I would be willing to go. My fashion fickle may not care for it in a couple of months.

Just like I envisioned, this skirt is made to wear with black. I feel very 70s mod and not in a bad way. I would really love a soft cotton wool turtleneck to go with that vibe but my closet is still suffering from a lack of black. I guess I'll be holding on to my old blouse a little bit longer. The skirt? We will see.

How do you feel about quilted clothing?
