Thrift with Flair

Blouse: $22  Purchased from Front and Company
Label: Antonella
I absolutely LOVE the coral colour of this blouse! It is by far my favourite hue in the entire rainbow spectrum.
I have an inkling that this blouse is relatively old, given that I had to cut the grandma-style shoulder pads off of them. Haha. But besides that, is it a classic silhouette that I can wear with shorts in the summer, and trousers in the winter.

Shorts: $22.80  Purchased from Forever 21
These tweed shorts are adorable. The tiny pleats sewed into the front creates a business casual look. I also like the cuffed bottoms, and the faux leather lining on the edge of the side pockets and back pockets.

Clutch: $3.99  Purchased from Value Village
This clutch is made of a wicker material, similar to that of a basket or patio furniture.  I was drawn to the patterning of black T's and dots on the bag. The lining is black, and there is actually a gold chain hidden inside that can be taken out and worn as a purse. This piece is very simple and casual.

Belt: $4.99  Purchased from Value Village
A metallic gold belt, with a cute bow-shaped clasp in the front.

Necklace: $4.95  Purchased from Forever 21
This is my all time favourite necklace in my entire jewelery collection. I purchased this piece about 8 years ago, and it is still a highly coveted staple of mine. This key necklace has broken in half several times throughout its daily wear and tear, but my brother-in-law has been nice enough to solder it back together for me every time. Thanks Donald!

Shoes: $7.99  Purchased from Value Village
Label: Enzo Angiolini
These nude, round-toed pumps are super comfortable. Plus, with the shoes coming in at $7.99, they are a stellar deal!

Frugal Finds Total: $66.72
