By popular demand, my brother and I thrifted an outfit for each other!

Oh, Brother!

After the last time my brother and I collaborated on an outfit post, you all highly requested that we go thrifting with one another and buy outfits so that’s exactly what we did!

Before we get into my outfit, you need to watch our video to get the whole backstory as well as to see what I bought for Ethan!

He Said, She Said

I think Ethan really got off easy! All he had to do was thrift me a dress. 🤦

Honestly, I would not have picked this dress for myself but, as he pointed out, it was very colorful and looked like something I would wear. I’ll give him credit for that!

His styling didn’t surprise me at all because he loves a classic color combination of black and red. Though, to be fair, this dress is actually an orange-y red so I accented it with a similarly colored lipstick.

Thrifting Challenge Overview

Overall I would totally do this again if we were allotted more time and stores to pick through. This thrifting challenge was a bit rushed but I still like the final outcome. And come on.. Ethan’s outfit is to die for!

Check out how pastel colors make a bold statement in this retro outfit!

Sherbet is a Sure Bet

It’s safe to say the cold weather influenced this dreamy ice cream-esque outfit. I didn’t even realize I dressed like my favorite frozen treat until I looked back at these photos!

The real inspiration for this look was a desire to wear pastels. Scroll down to find out what I love about wearing softer colors!

Sweet T

Especially now more than ever, people normally dress in darker colors or shades of black, because it’s within their comfort zones. So for a lot of folks, seeing colors is a sight to behold. Who knew wearing color be such a shock?

Any time you dress outside the norm, you’re going to get yourself noticed. But I like that pastels are still in a very normal realm (as opposed to say.. trying to bring JNCOs back from the dead).

Color Club

Going off that note, dressing in color is a fun creative exercise. Anyone can pair dark jeans and a black t-shirt together, but how many can mix together a pastel striped top, cognac suede skirt, and vintage pink coat?

I may not be able to draw and paint very well, but I’ll be darn if I can’t create a cute outfit from thrifted clothes!

Spring Fling

My last reason for loving pastel is that it’s about to be very on trend with spring coming up. As I mentioned in my last post, I don’t typically follow trends. But when I can thrift them on the cheap and incorporate them into what I’m already wearing? I’m good with that!

There’s never a wrong time to wear pastels so maybe this will motivate you to thrift them right now. If you do, snap a picture and share it with me on my Facebook page!

Wearing Ultra-Violet is Going To Be Ultra Cool This Spring!

Roses are red, violets are blue, here’s a trendy outfit post just for you!

Color Me Bad

Color has been a big part of my closet for the past couple of years so it should come as no surprise that I’m excited about ultra-violet being chosen as the Pantone Color of the Year! Purple feels like such a powerful color so I think it sets a good tone for 2018.

I was able to jump on this trend thanks to a recent DIY I did in collaboration with Rit Dye. So here’s how I styled my new-to-me top as well as a few tips for other ways to work it into your outfits!

Purple With Purpose

I don’t normally highlight trendy things around here but this shirt is definitely different because, as I mentioned, it was a total labor of love that I sourced secondhand and colored myself.

Why spend lots of money on something you may never wear again? Though, I think this top is going to get lots of wear. I mean, come on, it’s ultra-violet which makes it ultra cool!

What I’m Wearing

This ultra-violet top matched so much in my closet that I had a tough time narrowing it down. My mom actually stepped in to give her opinion so I have to give her credit for most of this look!

She picked out this splashy vintage skirt, a punk-y moto jacket, black tights, and sleek black booties.

My contribution to the look is the hat and purple lipstick. They’re the perfect nod to the ’80s that I love to incorporate into my looks!

Spring Forward

The other ideas I had for ultra-violet were pairing it with other shades of purple for a monochromatic look, yellow to really contrast the colors, and red because it’s Valentine’s season. Now you see why I had to call in for help to wrangle my ideas in!

Overall, I’m really digging this edgy spring look that my mom helped me come up with. Maybe my mom should become a regular contributor to my blog after she styled the outfit in this post and this outfit a couple years ago. Let me know in the comments what you think!

How To Update An Old Fashion Trend w/ Rit Dye

This post is sponsored by Rit. Products & payment were given in exchange for a tutorial. All thoughts & opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links which help me make a few cents if you click them. Thanks for supporting my content!

I’m dying to share this new project with you!

Spring Fashion Update

Spring fashion is probably on all of our minds, but what if you don’t care to drop lots of money on fleeting trends? Meet Rit!

Rit is a fabric dye that is used to rejuvenate and renew faded garments you love (but just didn’t want to let go), change the color of clothing/accessories (that needed updating) and bring new life to home decor.

Thrifting an Old Trend

With that in mind, I set out to thrift something that I could update into a spring trend using Rit. I found a plain white top and knew right away that it would be perfect to recolor for the “ultra-violet” trend. (which just happens to be the Pantone Color of the Year for 2018!)

How To Use Rit Dye

This project is perfect for anyone wanting to dip their does into the latest styles without investing lots of money. Watch the video to find out just how easy it is recolor an old garment!

Note: Fixative isn’t in place of washing your garment. It’s just a recommended step to help bind the dye even more so that it doesn’t bleed. It also enhances the color.

Courting Your Closet

I believe a lot of thought should go into your look so be sure to browse your closet carefully and keep in mind where you’re going and what activities will be involved. This should help you narrow down your outfit choices!

It’s A Match!

My outfit was inspired by a sit down dinner at a restaurant (fast food doesn’t count!) because it’s the classic first date situation.

I knew I needed to be comfortable, hence a t-shirt dress and flats, but I wanted to feel dressed up and make a good first impression so I wore this kimono to complete the outfit.

If it’s cold where you live (like it is for me) you might want to modify this look with a pair of tights. Or scrap this outfit altogether and go with my old standby of dark wash jeans and a nice blouse. Either option would still be totally appropriate!

App-ily Ever After

As for my own Valentine’s Day plans, I’m going to cozy up in this outfit with my true love – pizza 🍕 – and continue my tradition of watching the movie Mirror, Mirror. Shirtless Armie Hammer? Yes, please!
