// #thriftstylethursday // Marsala

When I saw that this week's theme for Thrift Style Thursday was Marsala I got so excited!!! In a matter of a week in December I inherited and thrifted these three pieces... (insert jaw drop). Miche of Buttons and Birdcages did well choosing this theme based on the Pantone color of 2015 ;).


I started out by posting the above photo to Instagram posing the question of which piece to highlight. The skirt won out, but with the request of also doing a refashion of one of the tops. Well, I didn't get to the refashion. So I'll be showing off this gorgeous vintage wool skirt!


I styled it with a bold black and white striped slouchy top that, when tucked and bloused, brings the modern look I love to create with vintage pieces.


I'm also wearing geometric gold earrings, a thrifted necklace, thrifted booties, and some gray footless tights I picked up a few years back.


I really love this look and how I felt wearing it: chic and beautiful! Marsala is definitely a fast favorite color and I'm looking forward to refashioning the top next. Keep an eye out for that sometime this weekend.


Oh, and the button-down kick pleat is pretty sweet too ;). You can see it better in this photo.


Now head over to see the other looks our TST ladies put together and don't forget to show some love by letting them know how amazing they look!





Peace,
Andrea
