Two Dollar Oscar

The amazing Sal of Already Pretty periodically posts about looking to thrift stores to score a season’s top trends.  She is absolutely right (but you knew that).  One of the big colors for this fall is emerald and a couple of weeks ago I thrifted this emerald blouse.  And then it photographed teal:

You’ll have to trust me that it is, in fact, emerald.  It’s also vintage silk Oscar de la Renta and I got it for a mere two dollars.  I paired it with navy cropped pants (Banana Republic), my new tasseled booties (Seychelles “Clue” via Nordstrom) and a few gold bangles (thrifted, Nordstrom and Banana Republic).

Emerald is not a color I usually gravitate towards and actually wasn’t even on my list of trends I wanted to try this fall.  But, I think this blouse is lovely and for two dollars, why not give it a shot?

Today’s Takeaway?  Listen to Sal.  And try thrift stores to get current trends for less.

Also, today is Thursday and Thursday's are for thrifters, so I've linked up with other thrifters over at Spunky Chateau.

Happy Thursday, Everyone!
