Today is Thursday, as usual we have another challenge from of Thrift stylists, this time the host is Miche from Buttons and Birdcages.
The theme is : 2015 Pantone color Marsala,
Preparing this post was a mess because I just moved here, so practically all my clothes are back in Morocco. A good reason to go hunting for thrift clothes, I guess!
But it´s still fun to try and make the most of what I have, for the time being.
I found this tunic, 2 weeks ago in a thrift shop of Rabat.
It’s really cold here so wearing only the tunic is out of the question, I layered underneath a black turtle neck, and a big thick snood.
As for the pants I’m wearing black leather like pants and my combat boots.
If anyone has a tip about where to thrift in Germany, I’d be forever grateful!
Don’t forget to check the beautiful thrifters in the links bellow.
Today is my first day in Germany and it’s also Thursday, so another theme from Thrift Style Thursday, this time the host is the Delightful Kristi with the theme Color Pop.
I prepared this post last week for this week’s theme, so the pictures were taken in Morocco.
I used the handy trick, to have a pop of color in accessories.
A red scarf and red leg warmers, with a black sweater, dark gray leggings and black combat boots. The whole is thrifted except the sweater which is my brother’s.
The scarf is one of my latest finds, it’s really warm and the print on it is a subtel coloreful geometric pattern, it comes off as red but it’s a great mixture of orange reds and pinks.
I think that even a hint of color can brighten up your day, especially in the gray weather. What’s your favorite way to add color to your outfit?
Don’t forget to check out the other thrifters for more looks. XOXO
I’m leaving for Germany tomorrow, so it’s my last day here.
I had a walk around town and taught I’d share my outfit with you guys.
The snood was hand made by mom (thank you mommy I wish i could knit like you !)
The leather jacket is from a local leather shop in Rabat.
As for the chambray shirt I got it from the thrift market in Agadir, dirt cheap!
The pants are thrifted too just basic black pants nothing special about them aside from the fact that I wear them a lot and that they fit perfectly.
It’s the first time I leave the country, and I’m going to be gone for a long time, it’s a weird feeling, nostalgic already because I know I’m going to miss everyone that I’m leaving behind, excited because it’s a new beginning and, finally, I get to be with my husband, I miss him more than I’d like to admit, nervous because with beginning comes unknown and that usually brings fear.
This weeks theme at Thrift Style Thursday is Pinspired New year, this is a great theme Idea and I have to thank Adrea for it , Pinterest has been an undeniably big part of my life recently, an endless drive of inspiration, to me and to many others. I’m a very visual person I tend to remember colors images and shapes, so when I discovered pinterest some years ago it was the perfect platform for me.
And talking about color I have a board
where I pin all color combos that I like or any image that inspires either outfits or decor or even DIY color projects .
For this weeks theme I reached for that board and I had this beautiful pin
of hot pink and navy combo just staring at me and the perfect outfit to portray it.
You know that problem we always have : nothing to wear but no place in your closet, I always end up putting myself in this position, I’m a hardcore thrifter I literally can’t say no to a good piece of clothing, and I thrift for such a long time that I have huge amounts of clothes, and I buy of everything ; if I find it cool, pretty trippy … anything goes as long as it’s interesting ! But unfortunately one can only wear a certain amount of clothes everyday; this is why I have these two wardrobe resolutions:
- Le ménage par le vide :(hahaha Google translation gave me household vacuum :P) but really what it means is just that I’m going to clean by emptying -> give away some of my clothes, I need this because I’m moving to Germany in February and I’ll be restricted in weight big time so I need to sort out my wardrobe and give away some of my dear clothes (tears) I’m also going to try this concept here that seems really interesting I’ll tell you guys how it goes.
- Experiment more styles: I said I thrift of everything and this includes styles that are not really mine. This today for example isn’t something I would usually wear so I’m glad I’m participating it TST, now that I know I can pull it off, I’m more keen to experiment and get out of my comfort zone, and finally pull out those old pieces that I never brought myself to wear.
Polka dot dress thrifted it’s actually 2 size bigger than me.
Pink sweater thrifted ( found in the kid section).
Chunky necklace down town Rabat.
Nude flats from the old Medina of Rabat, the local crafts men do wonders with leather.
So yeah this was my outfit how do you like it ? don’t forget to check out the other 9 members of the team, I bet they came up with some amazing thrifted outfits.
I went to the woods sometime ago, the weather was so nice I felt kind of nostalgic looking back at the pictures, and I taught I would share the green pictures and my outfit with you guys .
As usual nearly everything was thrifted .
My trusty brown ankle boot, that I am wearing a lot lately !
Blue jeans, thrifted them from Agadir and they fit perfectly, it’s actually quite hard to find a good pair of jeans that fit, it was a great deal.
Chunky sweater, thrifted.
Military like trench jacket, thrifted.
As a simple accessory I wore my New-Zealand hook, it was a birthday gift from my husband. My very first birthday of us together, he hand carved it himself back when he was in New-Zealand on blue jade.
It’s really dear to me, when he gave it to me he said that it was supposed to bring him home, so I’m holding on to it like a treasure.
How do you like my outfit? Are you just like me missing spring and sunshine ?
My next post will be on Thursday with Thrift Style Thursday, and the theme is really exciting “Pinspired New Year”, so see you then .
