The Tuxedo Blazer


Every now and then I find gems at the thrift store.  I was recently in one of my favorite local thrift stores, Mega Thrift, when I came across this fabulous tuxedo blazer for only $5.  When I saw it, I couldn't believe it.  It was in new condition and gave me all of the college marching band vibes, but I knew it had so many possibilities.  It's crazy because literally a few weeks after purchasing it, I saw similar versions in some of the latest fashion looks online.  This is definitely one of my favorite thrift store finds of 2018!

For this look, I simply wanted to have fun and create a casual yet edgy look.  I added a simple tee, these super affordable jeggings and shiny boots.  I have gotten quite a few comments on these boots.  I love them, but I hesitated for a few months on purchasing them.  I truly wanted a pair of Dr. Martens, but...  I have such a hard time grasping the price tag of Dr. Martens that I finally opted for this much more affordable version.  I have already worn these at least 10 times in a month so I think it was a smart decision.

There is so much you can do with blazers as you all are seeing from me wearing them so often on the blog.  After shooting this look, I actually changed my outfit and swapped the boots for red heeled booties for a more a dressed up look.  I headed to a surprise birthday party shortly after.  There will forever be so much you can do with blazers and that's why they are always number one on my thrift list along with jackets/coats.  Actually, I'm thinking about creating a thrifting checklist.  What do you think?
