Bringing in the New Year with a little Glam.. 4 Thrifty Outfits



Well dolls… Christmas is over… Crazy right?! This year my husband and I will be hosting a cocktail party for a few of our close friends.  Whether you’re staying in for the evening or stepping out for a night on the town, being FABULOUS is a MUST for New Years Eve and NOTHING screams FABULOUS louder than sequins! The more the better!!! The Thrift stores are great places to find statement pieces that are both AFFORDABLE and UNIQUE… There’s nothing worse than being at a party full of females who have the same FOREVER 21 or HM dress as you.

I was lucky enough to purchase a brand new and very vintage sequined “little black dress number” from a  Thrift Shop I visited in my new neighborhood a few weeks ago for 9.99.

The images below were found on ETSY but items such as these and more can be found in your local thrift shops, consignment stores, Goodwill’s and Salvation Army’s.

When thrifting remember these important tips.

1. Think outside of the box. If the blazer’s too big, add a belt or take it in. If you love the skirt but not the length, make it shorter, if the buttons aren’t you’re style but you love the concept… change them. and so on and so forth…

2. Shop smart.. the main purpose of thrifting is for the bargain, if the price tag is too steep for your liking, either talk them down or leave it there. Only you can determine what you deem to be expensive for a second hand item.
Here are 4 thrifty and very simple outfits that can be put together just in time to count down to the big 2012


Outfit #1
Which is very similar to the outfit I will be rocking for new years.
Pair a Vintage form fitting sequins dress with a sexy blazer (HM has the best blazers!!! Affordable and fit to a T) and some sexy heels and your’re done… If it’s cold in your area as well adding a pair of black sheer tights with sexy designs trailing up the back of your leg can be a great addition as well.

Outfit #2
Treasures such as this sequined blouse are always hiding on the tackiest racks that you wouldn’t look twice in the direction of so. This piece speaks for itself and doesn’t need anything else to help it stand out… pair with a pair of liquid leggings (or plain if you don’t own a pair) an oversized clutch and  spike healed booties.

Outfit # 3
I love rocking blazers and leggings especially liquid leggings.. they accentuate your shape so well (this is when those squats pay off! POW) Pair a sexy sequined blazer or bolero with a plain cami/tank, liquid leggings, statement pumps and a clutch an you’re good to go!

Outfit #4  
You can almost always find a black sheer flowy top at your local thrift stores at a great price.  Go a size up for the sexy oversized look. I love to wear black, red or leopard print bras undermine for a little sex appeal. Paired with classic black leggings (which we all should own..) an oversized clutch and killer shoes and this outfit is sure to turn heads..
