Thrifted Threads: Stripes and Dots for Work

Savers opened in the St. Louis area last week and I now enjoy thrifting.  I’ve visited twice and scored some fabulous finds on both occasions.

The two pieces anchoring this office look, the stripe shirt and polka dot pencil skirt, were both thrifted at Savers.  The skirt, by BCBG Max Azria, actually had the original tags on it.  Score!

Subtle print mixing for the office: pin stripes + dots

Shirt—Ralph Lauren c/o Savers (thrifted, $7.99)
Sweater—Old Navy (similar)
Skirt—BCBG Max Azria c/o Savers (thrifted, $7.99)
Belt—Vince Camuto (came with a dress)
Shoes—Tahari via Marshalls (similar, similar)
Watch—Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack
Bag—Dooney & Bourke c/o Savers (thrifted, $29.99)

      Well, I'm trying to catch up with you on this thrifting thing. It's funny you mentioned not being willing to spend over $7 anymore. I went to Marshalls after visiting Savers and I experienced post-Savers sticker shock. Everything seemed too expensive! Lol
