Fashion Friend: Emily Reinhardt's Outfit of the Day


I chose this outfit for a day of thrifting and seeking out second hand treasures with my friend Jen Spring. We took the non-traditional Black Friday shopping route, avoiding those stores with crazy flat screen tv deals and equally crazy shoppers. She has ignited this desire in me to find the best deals and to shop as wisely and frugally as possible.


I found a 13-piece set of brown glass tumblers in various sizes for $7, a wood framed small mirror for the wall for $3, a bronze flower/succulent pot for $6.50, and cloth napkins for $1.00 each. For just about $20 I had my arms full of treasures that truly get my heart beating. I love treasure hunting, especially when it's time spent with a good friend.

My skirt came from Zara (www.zara.com), a store I fell in love with in Washington, D.C. during a sidewalk sale. My shirt and blazer are both from H & M (http://www.hm.com) and my flats are the Gap (www.gap.com) city flats - my absolute favorite flat! So comfortable, and I now own a wide range of colors! I've never been much of a necklace girl, so pinning a mini flower pom from ban.do (www.shopbando.com) right onto my shirt is the perfect accessory for me. Makes me feel extra fancy! Like it's a real boutonniere! My jade ring was made by Debbie Carlos (http://www.etsy.com/shop/shopahc) and she and I worked out a little trade, so it cost me a few ceramic plates, and that's it!
