The 8th Day of “Thriftmas” – Red and Leopard Print

The 8th Day of “Thriftmas” is here and I’m excited to share some more of my purchases from my thrifting tour! I put this look together and thought, how perfect would this look be for a holiday party? I mean the red pants scream festive and the pops of gold really add something special to the outfit. Of course, adding leopard is always a necessary. ;-)  There’s nothing like a great red and leopard print OOTD this time of year  right? :-) All in all, this look shows off my personal style from head to toe!

When I saw these pants at the B-thrifty  in Virginia, I squealed! After a weeks and months of looking for the perfect red pair of colorful pants, it was a relief to find these Jones New York pair hanging on the rack. I snagged them for $5.00 – sweet deal! I was also due for a new leopard print blouse. The one I usually wear has been through the wire and the wash one too many times. So this $3.00 blouse was the perfect replacement. Let the hubby tell it, I don’t need another thing that’s animal print. ;-) But I knew I wanted to wear a red and leopard print outfit this season so, I had to get the blouse.

When it comes to the black velvet coat, I splurged and paid about $7 for it, lol. ;-) It’s a lightweight coat with one button and it’s suitable for someone like me who doesn’t always like to wear heavy outwear. Even when it’s blistering cold out, the thought of bulky and puff coats makes me sweat. This velvet number puts my mind at ease. I can slide it on, add a scarf and keep it moving.

I’ve had the necklace for awhile now so I added it to this outfit because I thought it complimented the purse well. This purse has been in my collection for sometime and I even thought about adding it to my shop. But something told me to hold on to it just a little longer. Glad I did. ;-)

Needless to say, I love all the garments I purchased! Each item is an investment piece and that’s something I focused on while on the thrifting around. Do you have any favorite items from this look?
