Today’s Thrift Style Thursday theme is a little bit different since it is the first time we asked someone else to style a thrifted outfit for us! The theme is “Stylist for a Day” brought to us by Andrea of Little Did You Know. As soon as I read the theme for this week, I knew I was going to enlist the help of my mom. We often ask each other’s opinion on our outfits and help each other style our looks.
For today’s outfit, I actually asked my mom to help me style a thrifted vintage tropical floral shirt, which I found at Savers several weeks ago, but haven’t figured out how to wear. My mom immediately suggested gray pants, and then added shoes and accessories, and – voila! – my personally styled thrifted outfit!
I have to admit that while I am all for getting a second opinion on an outfit, or asking for styling advice, I found it hard to allow someone else to create an entire outfit for me. I love my mom’s taste, but I have been dressing myself – and creating my own personal style – for years.
It was a lot harder to give up the reins than I thought, but luckily my mom knows my style really well and she did come up with several outfits for me to choose from haha! And anyway, I love these gray skinnies, with the zipper and stitching details, and this outfit is great so it wasn’t too much of a challenge! ;)
I’ve also unintentionally been growing my hair out (read: I have had absolutely zero time to go get a haircut). So, during this, uh, transitional hair phase, I’ve been trying desperately to find simple hairstyles. I was really pleased with this “fancy” half-ponytail!
The details: vintage tropical shirt (Savers) // gray skinny jeans (Gap) // leather sandals (Mossimo, thrifted) // dark green bucket bag (Old Navy) // red stud earrings (Forever 21) // owl pendant necklace (old)
I cannot wait to see who the rest of the Thrift Style Thursday gals enlisted to style for them, and to see what their stylists chose! Don’t forget to check out our newest member Alison of Nouveau North Westerners and the rest of the crew:
Have you ever let anyone else style an outfit for you? How did you like the experience??
As always, thanks for reading!
