You Too Can Rock a Formal Mumsy Jacket!

Thrift Score Thursday: Sylvia Edition
Made in Italy by Roslein

What do you wear on a day that’s juuuust cool enough for a light jacket?

...a light jacket! Duh!

Today’s thrifty outfit consists of an ancient grey T-shirt dress layered under a $6 secondhand hi-low cotton T. But what really makes this outfit is the jacket.

Here’s a better look:

Pretty!

This jacket may look pretty mumsy and dated on the hanger, but look at the details!

Amazing gilded print!

It originally had some pretty large shoulder pads in it, but those were easy to remove. For $1, I think it’s a pretty swell statement piece. And when paired with my $2 thrifted 80’s necklace and my green suede boots (sadly, new), I think a pretty swell outfit.

Great for work or play!

I wore my green, black, and gold to after work for some tasty noms with my good pal, Dan. Many cheeses were consumed.

NOM!

Dan is drinking...water? Huh?
