A few months back, the lovely Megan from Kiddo TV emailed me and asked if I’d like to participate in a little thrift swap. Her idea was that we would each play stylist and go shopping for each other based on our size, style, and a few requests/prompts. The swap was open for clothes, accessories, and shoes and we’d mail the items once we got them. I thought that sounded like a blast, so I immediately agreed!
I actually found all the stuff I got for Megan on the epic thrifting trip I shared here! Makes my lucky shopping day seem even luckier, right? I was stupid and didn’t think to photograph what I got for her, but here are the goodies she sent to me!
Did she do well or what?! I immediately loved the totally 90s floral print dress and leopard scarf–definitely items that I would’ve snatched up myself in a heartbeat! The little black backpack is so perfectly 90s with the dress and is definitely a fun little accessory. The black vest might’ve passed my notice at the store, but I knew it would be a great way to mix up some dresses and skirts!
Here’s how I styled my new clothes!
I wanted to add some edge to the dress with my faux leather jacket, but I also had to sweeten it up even more with my collar necklace and over-the-knee socks.
I assumed that the floral dress would be my hands-down favorite, but this is the outfit I kept on for the rest of the day! The vest fit really well gave much needed structure to that frilly tunic. I love the way the bottom of it looks, but I often think it’s difficult to style just right. Now I have a good go-to solution!
Thanks again, Megan for this super fun collaboration! I love a good thrifting/styling challenge. :)
